Well fcuk me 6 ways to Sunday,

that Meclac is the proper dog's danglies,

and could probably scratch a dog's dangly bits,

to the dogs immense and ongoing satisfaction.

I like it.

P.S.

Requires a week/couple of weeks intensive training, a short break, then back on with a couple of relaxing pints in, to "go with the flow".

IMHO

Think you’re all getting unduly worried.

Mecalac have them setup so when you’re using them as a Skidsteer loader you drive/steer with one hand, then operate like a normal loader with the other.

 

When you open her out as an Excavator so to speak it’s back on the two Joysticks again.

 

Been a slow burner for a long while, guys like Graham Sandercock who went first do some fantastic work with them, but still a hard thing to even get to see, let alone a full demo.

 

Hope to get a decent go myself one day.

 

 

Eddie.

Hi guys, does anyone here have a number for JimE, I messaged him about 3 weeks ago but it seems he hasn't logged in since September, it would be great if I could get a mobile for him. Thanks

What sort of hours did you get out of the first set ? Do you just travel on soil woodland ect or do you do groundworks working on tarmac ect? [mention=26165]Stephen Blair[/mention]


A bit of everything, some jobs I’ve had to track half a mile on tarmac to get access but mostly grass and woodlands.
Machines got nearly 1700 hours on it.

Eddie apart from a constantly sore lower back, no regrets. The grab and machine has now shaped my business.
