    130% tax allowance on capital purchases

    What are your thoughts on this? Is it encouraging you to buy new instead of used machines? On a combine at 250k its bound to be quite a saving.

    Claas arion 650 disappointing performance

    I took my new low loader and excavator on a trip today which was within, but close, to the legal limit. I found that the weight didn’t boss the tractor, but the performance on hills was dreadful. I haven’t done much heavy hauling with it, but couldn’t believe how gutless it was, down to 12k on...
