Pictures of her with floats on, all in good order.

A question I ask myself every time I walk by it!

I find myself doing a lot of road miles between blocks, and whilst it will sit at around 40k I don’t think it’s kind on it to be racking up the road miles really.

Secondly…I have a new Fastrac 4220 coming which in order to justify itself needs to pull a sprayer.
If I had a ring fenced farm there’s no way i’d sell it, and to be honest part of me is tempted to keep her and leave it at one farm but I would find it very hard to justify that financially.
Certainly a head and not a heart decision, a lot of time and love has gone into making it what it is.
I hope to find a buyer who will appreciate it!

I wish I could justify it too! Chafer trailed here and really pleased with it. Always been envious of @Adeptandy and his Chafer SP.

I've been to see this sprayer and it is a nice tidy machine in very good condition. The only reason we didn't buy it was we've got a slightly newer Mirage 418 from closer to home, but it was a very close decision!
Thankyou Rob, it was good to meet you.
She’s still available, tucked up in the dry waiting for her new owner!
