Hi Nick. If you want a price ring Simon Milligan at SM Plant sales. He seems to be a helpfull guy. Has anyone tried a Eurocomach the 2.5 ton is 2450kg so gives a little to play with. The spec looks ok except the 26lt fuel tank. I didnt see any at the show.

Tom Lomax at Exc@v8 is the dealer for Eurocomach. If you are interested I think he has a 2.5t at his depot. They certainly look well put together and Tom provides good service.

TBH Gra ...... I really could not see Tom getting involved with anything that wasn't damned good.

Frank (Bucket on wheels) has had seat time in IIRC an 8 or 9 tonner (but might have been a 6??) and had nothing but praise for it and the marque in general

I have all the spec.s/brochures here .... (courtesy of Alex, who was considering one at one time) and they look the mutt's on paper

Yes i would like a look and play at some point. Problem could be resale in 2 or 3 years time would the Eurocomach hold the value like a volvo or kub ?

May of been just me but I found that the Volvo didn't have much feedback/feel through the levers so much so that I asked if the controls were electric but they weren't .

Was a smooth machine though and looked like a solid Tonka toy!

Believe the Kubota 027-4 and u27-4 are 2600kg with cabs and 1 bucket attached.
