Have anyone dealt with them before? They seem to have a wide selection of plant in stock. The digger looks newer than 2005 Druid, is it 2015 maybe?

that's quoted straight from their ad. Mike


Pete Pierce, APH2007, knows them well and seems to deal with them frequently ... dare say he'll have his two penn'orth to contribute, when he sees it.

although nice and damned near new ..... it's still 12 years old

It should be like new but I suppose a machine sitting about for 12 yrs bound to have issues with siezed in pins or choked grease channels or corrosion in hydraulic cylinders or something

Googling the model number brings up machines of 2004-6. Can't understand it doesn't look like its even been outdoors.

I can't see the bare metal you mention but there is an irregularity with the rivets holding the data plate on, their different. I'm not saying it's been tampered with but can't think of a good reason for it being like that

I have heard of occasions where a tractor had been impounded by the police for 6 years before the owner got it back but 12 years and in mint condition is a new one.
