Re: eBay listing dates

I contacted a seller the other day, genuinely enquiring about an item, he sent me his mobile number! I have no idea how he managed it, as that should have been stopped, but it was there, no hiding it...

Re: So - an opinion - tiltys and prices !

Re: So - an opinion - tiltys and prices !

If a machine is equipped with two prop aux services, on sticktop rollers. Obviously this will run a 4 pipe tiltrotator no problem. But what would be the sensible way to get and control an auxiliary...

Re: Atlas minis/midis

Why do you think the single pin is better? With two separate pins, you’ve got twice the amounts of points at which the pin must shear to break it.

Re: Jcb but not bashing

It’s an Ag machine I’m after, and our local Ag dealer I’ve called......:rolleyes:

Glad you’ve had a good buying experience, and JCB Finance are very good, as you’ve also found out.

Well....that makes a refreshing change:D

For me, there’s value in supporting British built products, not that it should be the only consideration, but if it stacks up on paper and looks right,...

Re: Druid’s New Duck – ’99 Hydrema-Wiemar M1500
