    Bailey drop bed low loader

    Quite keen on one of these, but ould welcome any user experiences. One particular question is can you drop it off and pick it up without dropping the bed, i.e. if using it behind a loader which only has one service for the pickup hitch & trailer, and involves swapping pipes etc. Many thanks

    Looking for a 9m telescopic

    Hi, looking for a 3.0-4.0t loader with 9m reach and pickup hitch. Budget is only £25,000 as it’ll only be doing 300 hours a year as a spare machine. All attachments are JCB presently but we can swap headstocks so the machine doesn’t need to be JCB. Anybody know of anything please?
