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: Druidís New Duck Ė í99 Hydrema-Wiemar M1500

Gra, has that Dane mower not got a mulching deck? Something with a mulching deck is the real way forward! And donít pick the grass up at all!
But you do have to cut regularly, within reason.

Re: Crashed conversion

Plenty of the road crews seem to do it, the planer guys in particular. But see them more with a 6 wheeler and drag, rather than an 8 wheeler. I presume for manoeuvre ability?
