so was wondering if anyone out there has had/has one and what would they be like?
have one here for the last 14 years and cant say one bad word about it. Has 18,000 hrs on it. Granted it got fully reconditioned 4 yrs ago, redid the injector pump this year on her, that was due to dirty diesel, has a loader on her and stacks all the bales here. Around 800 straw and 700 silage. Used to stake alot more silage than that a few years ago when we did silage for other lads. Father ran a chopoer baler off her and a 10ft mower and said she was a right yoke on them. ATM here she feeds, beds all stock, loads all muck, scrapes all the **** around parlour, draws 700-800 bales straw and stakes tham, draws 700 bales of silage and stacks them. Also wraps all the silage. We still have the original back tires on here, there near wore out now, and we've gone through 4 pairs of front tyres. She's near fooked now but she has well paid us back. Theres alot of bad stories around about them and i honestly dont know why
