Japa 700 value

Recommended Posts

I will be selling my PTO powered firewood processor soon, wondered what the going rate would be.  I will put some pictures on tomorrow, but let's just say it is not the prettiest but it is fully working and can be seen working by the buyer.  I was thinking it would be worth around £2500 (no VAT), am I close?

Sod all i doubt, it’s lifting them that’s more the issue. I remmeber my old hakki pilke only needed 15hp To run but needed a 35hp tractor to comfortably lift it

What PTO power does it require?

I run it with my old Nuffield which is meant to be 65hp I believe, but as it is 60 years old it is more likely to be 45 or 50.  Whether you could run it with less I do not know to be honest.  Once you fold the conveyor up it lifts fine.  I don't think a mini tractor would run it but any normal size one should be fine. 

 

I know you are near to me Mr Sandspider so feel free to come and have a look.

Thanks, but as my compact tractor is 15HP on a good day, I fear it might be too much for it! Also, I don't really process enough wood to justify it, alas.

I run my Japa 700 on an old MF135,  handles it easily enough,  that had when new about 38hp at the PTO,  7700 hours later its probably a bit less now.
