What dont i have a clue about?

You have an amazing set up. But the pic shows a vehicle with a sticker that says 20m exclusion zone with several members of staff within that. The sticker is pointless.. A bit like stikers that say construction vehicle..

Spotted this on Mascus, bit of an unusual one?🤔

Basically a new Kobelco SK75, guarded up, will take loads of different pad options up to probably 900mm without mods.

Has a Steelwrist with Control System and Top Hitch setup too, so some serious money been spent.

Seems to be a mix of Buckets etc available, no idea on price, but potential to make something really nice from it.

Pretty sure it’s a scam - think I’ve seen the same listing highlighted on another forum a few months ago.

Doesn’t look like a scam. Same phone numbers on the machine, price looks on the heavy side to me, can’t see why it wouldn’t be genuine.

Get that cheque book out John! Looks like you could strike a deal on it, just tell them you’ve got a lad who’ll drive it back to Richmond 😂 (ps. Not me!)

Certainly doesn’t look like a scam, one phonecall to Jcc Group John Craig will almost certainly tell anyone interested all they want to know, as that’s going to be one of his Engcon setups/installs with the SVAB control system.

 

Someone has spent some serious money there, and is clearly passionate about the details.

Look at the extra grips on the outside of the joysticks, and even the Ec-Oil blocks have their additional yellow protective covers on.

 

Wouldn’t be my first choice of brand, but would certainly be a great entry into the concept, and all the kit would transfer over if you moved onto another brand in the future.

As she's road reg'd, just drive her on to the ferry in stronoway, few quid saved there :D

 

There's a story of a local guy "back in the day" who drove an old JCB 3c 100-odd miles home. Apparently he went up to get it with his van & bicycle. He would do a few miles at a time, then cycle back to get the van and leapfrog the JCB, and so on. Bike was carried in the van or the front bucket of the JCB
