Re: The 500hr grease interval claim

Well I certainly wish mine would look after itself: more time driving the thing and less time getting covered in grease sounds good to me.

Re: Is JCB finally improving quality?

I was looking at a 2015 8 tonner at Euro Auctions today, it had rust on the boom ram; the chrome looked very thin to me. Such a shame as the new midis really do look the part.

Re: The 500hr grease interval claim

Well I must confess, I donít like greasing up. However, I think the point about regular greasing flushing dirt and water out is a valid one: time will tell though.

We are a sceptical bunch:D.

Re: Is JCB finally improving quality?

Iím surprised that you found it a weak pusher. As said, itís the only midi Iíve spent time in, but I find mine to be quite impressive in that regard. They also seem well laid out and not over...

Re: Is JCB finally improving quality?

All sounding positive, but they really do need to take the poor paint issue seriously. Thereís no better advertisement for new sales than seeing old machines still looking smart and putting in a good...

Re: Power pack to run a flail

Re: Power pack to run a flail

Yes, Iím sure theyíll do the job Aiden, thereís a drainage board contractor out this way who uses one. The only thing that Iíd be concerned about is ground clearance.

Re: Power pack to run a flail

I donít own a Tak James, I was originally thinking it might be a good base machine (having flat steel work) to mount a hydraulic power pack on. However, if aux flow is 100/lpm as some of the spec...

Re: Power pack to run a flail

Re: Power pack to run a flail

So, as usual Iím waiting for someone to come and flail the ditches before I can do my bit. And again Iím wishing I had the capabilities of doing the job myself.

Is the aforementioned power pack...

Good to know, but is this getting back to mr jcb, and is he doing anything about it?

There might be an initial saving for them in the manufacturing process, from a piss-poor paint job, but that...

BMC do them for machines down to 2t: guess 1.9t wouldn't be stretching things too much. Check out there new products.
