We bought a second hand Big X about 10 years ago. Did a brilliant job but took a lot of fettling over winter. Turns out more economical to hire off Ian Wilson, which we discovered after the engine blew up at 2600 hours and neither Merc nor Krone would stand by it.

Oh come on. Surely the manufacturer want to look after people? FFS.

On older secondhand gear ? I doubt it ?
