    Interesting link and thanks for adding it. But the state of those machines is shocking. How the fook are they so bad after 1-3k hours work?




    The hours on them can't be right. I saw them a few days ago and they had 30 year old tractors with ~2k hours.



    Either a broken or new clock I'd have to think....although looking at the state of the machines overall you'd have to think broken more likely than replaced!


    They'd be pulling 3000 year old bog bodies out of the bog that would be in a better state

    Went to the auction a few years ago, the smaller tractors are the best value, some of the fiats had no starters alternators etc, a lot were on tracks with no back linkage, a lot of exporters from what I could see

    This was a while ago. Dont like them 90 deg fold up mowers since

    Your new mower folds up by more than 90 degrees doesn't it? What's different in the design to stop the headstock breaking? Still a big weight its carrying isn't it?

    Much bigger headstock plus the weight is even across the headstock rather than all on one arm/side

    That should save the back when you are picking stones.

    What’s the plan for it?

    Building walls mostly. I have a lot of very big stones.

    A grab is an awful handy attachment to have. Don’t know why excavators don’t have them, they are very popular in the states.

    Do you mean the "thumb"


  • Registered Users Posts: 397 ✭✭Panjandrums


    Do the OPW ever have auctions? I remember seeing a new 35tonne Kobelco excavator a few months back and thinking that would be a great buy in a few years for someone.


  • Registered Users Posts: 673 ✭✭✭Sharp MZ700


    Nice clean Lexion 670 TerraTrac in Fermoy today, first time hearing one on tarmac. Couldn't believe how quiet it was, the header on tow was making a racket!

    Yeah but they are hidden bid auctions. I think that's what ya call them


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,051 ✭✭✭bogman_bass


    Do you mean by tender?


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,329 ✭✭✭✭Reggie.

    Well you go in and write your bid into an envelope and seal it for whatever machine or lot.
    The yard it open for a few days for people to have a look around.

    The highest bid wins when they check the envelopes.

    Last of the big spenders, me.

    Been looking for one of those for a while now as it was getting awkward removing pallets from deliveries with the bale handler. Finally found a lad not too far away making them.

    Need that exact same implement myself

    What kind of pallet weight can they take?

    Is it from scully trailers?

    We put every thing on pallets here, nothing is ever in the way since I got pallet forks

    Rated for 2 tonnes, from a man around Listowel side. My loader isn't rated for more than a tonne so I won't be testing it too much in the near future.

    They're fairly scarce but got them for E450 so happy with that. Any new ones I priced seem around E7-800.

    You got a good deal, 800 seems to be the run of them from what I can see

    Do you find it hard to get under pallets. Like hard to see?
