I ran my 1 tonner with a Volvo ED750 wheeled dumper which at 1m wide managed to get in and out of most jobs but not all. It was surprisingly stable and very capable on rough ground. I really liked that little dumper but could never seem to get the brakes to work well.
Those ed750 were great little dumpers.

Got a new htd5 last year had an issue with tracking which they sorted really quick - not sure how well any other manufacturer or local sales company would have been but JCB have fitters up and down the country which is good
Other that it's been great as said turning is not the best, it does however use very little fuel, is very stable and just under 700mm wide.
Other manufacturers diesel models are (when was looking) a good third more expensive and tend to be wider also.
I've shifted a good few hundreds of tons with mine always starts and does what it needs.

I've got an old (very) takeuchi tb108 has been great machine really reliable although pin wear is arse. always surprises people to what it can do (it's a struggle but can move a full bulk bag of stone) again it's just under 700mm wide if the rops is off (which is a pain to take off) also boom articulation is 90 degrees both ways the newer ones look good and have considered updating although couldn't justify the price of swapping plus they are wider and don't have the same boom articulation although do have a slightly longer reach and in terms of the power think only the new tb210r has more breakout force

Ok I lied, my HTD5 broke down today, 1 month out of warranty. Starter motor not engaging with the flywheel just spinning. Luckily it has a pull start so we could keep working.
Seriously, why do I do it to myself with this JCB kit Although technically its the Lombardini bit that's gone wrong so.... ok maybe I still like JCB

So I ended up with a Doosan DX10Z. Impressed with it so far, seems to have plenty power, loads of reach and a lot more stable than I expected it to be. Decent size buckets with it too. Looking for a second hand JCB Dumpster now. Has anyone had any dealings with Devon Plant Services?

I believe Tim knew the head honcho Jimbo .... pretty sure there was mention of these guys way way back in my duck hunting days .... real early in my thread ... IIRC BIL to Devon Duck's owner .... try a search

IIRC they usually get up to Brightwells

Chris Luscombe is DPS, been around since the age of trackshovels and tbh I've never heard much bad about them. Normal niggles from farmers wanting everything for nothing but beyond that always sounded like a good firm

I'm selling mine, just over a year old and very well looked after. Probably done around 200hrs. Only reason I'm selling is because I'm getting out of the groundworks game. Machine is virtually mint. PM me if you're interested, I can get it out of the shed and take some photos.

Just did a deal for one today, bought the one from Devon Plant. How much are you asking for your one?
