So I finally sold it, finance paid off so I got rid.

 

My overwhelming feeling is of disappointment, it chipped great, but too unreliable, needlessly so imo.

 Shonky engineering, poor welding etc.

Nothing against Redwood, they did their best considering they could have binned me off as I’d bought it from one of their foreign concessionaires.

 

I won’t get another one, that’s for sure.

Has it gone to dealer or private sale?

 I worry about moving our machine on in case we get pursued under 'vice cache' should the new owner suffer as I have.

Getting prices in atm. Very very expensive.

 

€45000 ex VAT for a 325 with a 45hp engine.

      Our company used this tip site today to tip our chippings. We had been doing a highways job in ecclesfield Sheffield removing some Lombardi populars. The access to this tip site was very good. It’s a allotments/ youth centre. Real nice lady who we spoke to just rang up and arranged to tip. I think this tipping idea 💡 is brilliant saves a lot of time and money 💰 thanks 👍
