Re: JCB 86c-1 TAB

Bit of grading, of some of the worst plannings Iíve had for a long time! Pure shite! :mad:

Re: JCB's current Stable - 1.5-10t

Thatís the way I see it, I think the bucket rotation is excellent, in the speed position, in the power position I think the bucket will crowd back considerably less, which is a shame.....

Re: JCB's current Stable - 1.5-10t

As far as I read Roryís post, and the aspect of the 2go system that I find annoying, and have disabled (was done by JCB fitter as a factory update/request), is the need to not only drop the right...

Re: JCB's current Stable - 1.5-10t

Extra pin hole in the bucket linkage, as can be seen in this pic. Not my pic, just a library pic.

Re: JCB's current Stable - 1.5-10t

Re: JCB's current Stable - 1.5-10t
