  1. I have sent his contact details to you.
  2. I will message him for a contact number.
  3. No mate, a Vermeer 800 on tree bay linked to Facebook.
  4. Just seen one on tree bay, no idea how mich he wants or what the chap is like but might be worth having a look. Can’t work out how to create a link to it on here.
  5. [emoji4] not just yet, I have a plans for it early part of next year, have you contacted Vermeer to see if they have any second hand machines in? I know they seem to be fairly hard to get hold of to the point where they told me they had a buyer for mine when I mentioned upgrading literally within 15mins of an enquiry. The biggest advantage with the 725 we found over the bigger ones is it will get through most garden access points, this advantage would be lost if we upgraded but we concentrate majority on commercial now. Good luck with the search.
  6. No issues at all with any of the attachments, we have a 3.5t Kilworth winch which is a game changer, couldn’t recommend them highly enough. We are considering upgrading to the CTX 100 purely for the fact of a newer machine with a higher flow rate, been using the 725 for 4 years with no problems and the work that can be achieved with it in a day is unbelievable.
  7. We are running the Klou flail (Lipa) flail, no issues at all
  8. We have a S725tx, just wouldn’t be without one now, we run a winch, log grab, bucket, log splitter and a flail off of it. Don’t give it a second thought just go and treat yourself and save yourself a lot of hard work.
  9. Hi Anyone have any recommendations for replacement tracks for the machine in the uk? Thanks in advance.

  11. Where are you based mate?
  12. Bigtreedon that’s exactly what I’m after any ideas where this can be purchased?
  13. Hi all Anyone got a 12v winch (vehicle winch style 8000-10000lbs) on a blade (dig in) that they use in conjunction with there mini loader?? If so is it effective if not why not? Thinking it would be easy enough to fabricate just wondered why it’s not available as an attachment to buy. Pics would be great if you have failed or successful operational attempts. Thanks in advance Jim.
  14. I have just done this, JCB were great to deal with
