Good pics there, Roly.

What's the diff between a 46J & 47J series?.....at a guess I'm thinking the 47J is powershift, the other is D.D.

Hi Roly always nice to see some "new" pics. 8 hidrives...are they all D6 or have you gone up to D8? Heard you have some winter so do we have , only the 30-RB earning some crowns at the moment ,the ground is frozen a half meter deep sadly when there are work to do for the dozers. All the best from Anders.

Roly i think Chris Lee's N went pretty cheap. Saw it on a low loader down near us on the M4 not long before he sold it.

Trax that looked a very tidy tractor,i believe he shipped it in
from Kentucky,i,ve had a nose at a couple but there to rough
for the price asked,plus 23k to retrack a D8N compared to
16k for a D8k,i,ll wait a while longer yet

Twenty three Grand's not to be taken lightly, especially as the hrly rate would be hard to achieve against a K. I should think i'd want 70 quid an hour for a D8N, I want 36 now for a D5H or D6M.
