    Soft hands, locking or not locking side.

    I'm going to buy one of these in the next few week, but which is best, the ones that you can lock or just the ordinary ones that open and shuts both side the same.

    Which machinery brands have good paintwork?

    Was thinking this afternoon that my earlier thread on paintwork could be turned around to be please post below machines that have excellent paintwork. My big vote goes to Chafer - quality paintwork that doesn't chip or peel, and even has a clearly visible undercoat.

    Why is paintwork so poor?

    Why do manufacturers do such a poor job of paintwork? I’d never consider just giving something a single tip coat on its own, yet I’ve hardly seen a single machine in recent years that has had an undercoat. Plenty of mentions of JCB paintwork on here. New Holland black paint on all combines...

    Vicon Greenland rf120 round baler

    The baler works fine until the net wrapping process. The net starts ok but it doesn’t complete the process and the knife doesn’t try and cut the net. The spindle doesn’t seem to move right I think either which could be the cause.

I enquired with the dealer and the price was £72,500 which is about £12,000 less than a new price today so a reasonable discount I thought. In the meantime a fellow tff...
