  1. As i say, not as refined and i completely agree regarding the lack of comfort, proper spine shaterer on anything but smooth fresh tarmac
  2. I've no issues with the 51 series, great tractors but as you said, not quite the cummins powered mx (they were cummins powered though, just not as refined). They are pretty much the same tractor as the mtx with just a different engine and while the Perkins lump in the mtx is good, it's not a patch of the cummins in an mx, completely different animal and the noise that cummins produces is second to none
  3. It is yes, such a good power plant in a well built tractor
  4. That's what I meant, I have a mk2 and having had that and the picture side by side, the pictured zz is definitely a mk3. Just look at the metal around the roll pin on the top link, mine is half the depth of the one pictured
  5. It's a mk3 and there was no recall on the mk2, they just extended the warranty to 10 years. Back to the accident and pictures in question...the issue is the top plate spring has failed, nothing to do with the cam
  6. Something to consider would be the case mx/McCormick mtx form around 1999-2003 and the John Deere XX00 and XX10 series of around the same era. Not as new as you have suggested but both are good solid work horses, especially the case mx in my experience
  7. I must have been really lucky, headed to brigg for about half 4 and got the last one. Judging by an fb group I'm in, most places were sold out by 9 this morning
  8. Does that fixed style grab rotate at all?
  9. Another vote here for the cast workyquad. Brilliant bit of kit, down to 740mm wide on its narrowest wheels I believe but with 100kg counter weights and 70kg operator it'll lift around 400kg (That's absolute max I would think without making it unsafe). Really well built and simple machines too with decent honda/kubota engine options
  10. You talking employed or self employer rates?
  11. Not sure if they still have stock but fr Jones had some replacement tubes. Failing that...contact henchman, I believe they are the uk importers
  12. I'd give ladders a miss with an easylify, far too unstable and lack the range of movement often required when on a ladder. As far as the newer model with swivel is concerned...I'll stick with my older one I think, the newer one doesn't seem to work as well as it seems to get locked out on an angle making it difficult to pull the trimmer down again
  13. Not sure if this has the info you wants but here's a link to their fb page https://www.facebook.com/micropelle/
  14. Been following them on Facebook for probably a couple of years now. Don't look a bad bit if kit in all honesty and they are very cheap in comparison to a lot of others
  15. In short...yes, it's worth more than £23 a ton for biomass. The hard part is finding someone that wants it but it still isn't going to be worth £1000's. Probably looking at around £40-£50 a ton. It will obviously be worth a good bit more than that if slabbed up but again, you have the issue of finding a buyer but also the additional expense of getting it milled
