Forst ST6P common issues?

We've decided not to feed it up to capacity when we get it back to see if it suffers significantly less stress and fewer problems.

I'm trading it in but the waiting list is 6 months.

I have a Gm QC and have had the same problem with the feed rollers where they spring a leak and over time you lose all the hydraulic oil and rollers stop working. 

 

Apparently the problem lies with the roller motor that hangs down not being able to hold the weight of the roller on top. 

 

I have had 4 motors need to be changed over two QC. 

 

Funny but my first QC that I clocked 700 hours with never had the problem.

My own 2012 Quadchip rivaled Mick's Forst on the scale of witches curses.

I replaced at least 2 roller motors.

 

We are considering an Evo 165D

When I visited GM last July I took a long hard look at one with Jase Hutch explaining matters.

It is a far more robust build than our 150P

The Kubota diesel is tried and proven by and can be fettled by any agri-diesel mechanic.

I need a folding chute for storage, the insurance of a spare wheel and a folding hopper to chuck climbing bags in.

I'd like to go 8" again but for my current storage limits and these days I'm really just a small urban arb so a 6" suits.

I have paid of the Forst now, so I’m having the extra buttons fitted to the top of the hopper to conform to European regs, then it’s up for sale.

I really like the new evo but I just don't think I could do with out a turn table as that's the best thing with the qc. 

 

Part of me is hoping that they will do an evo at some point on a turn table but until then I will just do with changing roller motors every now and then.
