Brilliant salesmanship, start with the rear wheel steer, launch a four wheel steer, launch a low boom model, launch a new improved model with a new transmission............! :cool:
Cheapest way to kit out a new factory in another country is to send all you're old jigs and tooling out there. They are used to old exported machines anyway so it's still a step forward for them.

To them its no different to the impact the 1st telehandlers had here, much of their lifting and carrying is still manual labour. I did like the fact that air conditioning is an option, anyone who has visited the Worlds greatest industrialised nation will have seen that air conditioning there is more or less non existent on construction machinery and they often just fit a rollover bar and sun canopy. When I mentioned this to the wifes uncle he could not believe that the UK felt it necessary to fit such luxuries to excavators etc

Whilst you could construe from my post that we just send them any old junk you also have to consider that they don't have the skills to deal with electrics and over complicated machines. They are more than happy with what we had in the 80s so I'd guess its a very profitable market for jcb.

I'm not sure that many in this country have the skills to deal with the complicated machinery either.

Not old junk at all, good basic engineering and at the end if the day far more likely to work long term than if they had a latest generation loadall.

New report underlines need for joined-up action to protect rivers

Written by Defra Press Office

A wide river is in view in a valley in the background, a drystone wall is behind the river, and large, green trees are prominent in the scene.


The Rivers Trust has today launched its State of Our Rivers report aiming to allow the English public understand and explore the health of their rivers on a national and local scale.

Environment Minister Rebecca Pow and Environment Agency Director John Leyland attended the launch panel to discuss the ways in which the...
