On the plus side you won't be able to upload the fuckers, so it's all good.

Piss off Corbyn....

Strangely the Druid was absent from plantworx..... All I'm saying is you never see Corbyn or Druid in the same place.

I had a good look over the EC27D. Its probably the closest in specs to my 8026 but being built by Volvo, hopefully a little more reliable.
Initial thoughts were its got metal in all the right places, track frame looks beefy, good size arm etc but the thin plastic bodywork looked rattly to me and service access was poor. Its not supposed to be a zero tailswing but they had kept the back end tight and I don't know how that will affect its performance with such a long arm.
Inside the cab was nice, good space but nothing to write home about. I've inquired as to price etc so we shall see but my nearest dealer is Devon way so not sure how backup will be if required. To be honest I'm more tempted to get another JCB, extend the warranty and keep the service number on speed dial. Nothing has come close to its performance in this size yet.

I also had a good look round the new Kubota KX027-4, nice machine, but the spec sheet says it cant match the JCB although haven't driven it yet. Local hire firm just got a batch of them so I will give it a go. Also the Takeuchi TB230 looked a weapon. Almost a size up from the 2.8t competitors but the serial plate said it came in at 2885kg which is damn close to being towable. With specs like the JCB and manufactured by people who can make a thing or two it could be the one. Dealers closer too...

I to had a good look at the ec27d but i were comparing it to ec27c. I understand that the weight stamped on the machine does not include the bolt on weight which is 100kg. I don't really like the fact it has no rear end and as you say access is not good to do anything. They have changed from Yanmar to Kubota engines. The valve block must be under the floor which would i think make fitting the tilty a pain. I would like to try a D but will be sticking with my C for sometime i think.
