Looking at a really good Vicon geospreader, in excellent condition.
Just wondering if anyone has had any issues or if is a good machine.
Obviously know it needs to be kept clean and well looked after with electrics and water/fertiliser.

Electric actuators are roughly 400 quid each so factor that into the pricei had some on my last machine. They're supposed to be better now bit only time will tell
