  1. Re the original thread title, I can now answer my own question having had the use of Greenmech's Evo165d (25hp) for the last week while our Quadchip was being looked at. First off, I'm smit. It's plain to see that their r & d people have been busy, the whole feel/use had a heavier weight (yes, I know, it is heavier). Consumption & general processing, inc those awkward forks that got put to one side for 'later', was far quicker. The throw was enough to cause small dents to the ally box bulkhead so theres no need to unhitch to get the shute closer. Miss the turntable? Yes, no doubt that was handy feature in tight domestic or roadside situations but we preferred the quicker processing once the machine was set up. Having a slightly narrower track was a bonus for our small workshop so everything considered, we opted for the bigger (45hp) diesel as being old, I believe in less stress. Just wondering it GM would paint it pink or camo to deter thieves.
  2. Hi all. Used to be regular on here a few years ago but business took off & found I had no spare time. Anyway, I hope this subject hasn't been already spoken of but we're starting to find our Quadchip 160 is a bit lightweight for the sort of stuff we're doing so wondered if anyone has experience of the GM165EVO. Cost at £21.5k is slightly less than the 160 but I'm told its built of heavier plate due to having no turntable. Any opinions please?
