Re: JCB 8018 CTS Mini Excavator Fluids Alternatives - New to Mini's Help & Pointers?

Hi Dan, welcome along. Can't really help you myself but I'm sure someone will show up shortly with some answers. Just my opinion, diesel would be regular diesel, and the oil specs should be able to cross reference between JCB and local supplies. It does seem odd that points 6 and 7 are the same JCB ...

Re: Compact Tractor

If you're planning a bit of brush bashing as well then yes a flail is the tool. Generally they rotate in reverse to the direction of travel which gives a neater finish in grass etc., one that rotates forwards will deal with larger brush better but a rougher finish. Something else to consider is the ...

Re: Compact Tractor

I'm not sure a flail is the answer, some bracken spores can be carcenagenic and a flail would quickly get them airborne, also a flail will spread seed very efficiently. I would be tempted towards a fingerbar type mower so the offending greenery could be gathered and burned or rotted.

Re: Ford low profile cab wiring

Hi Pete,

The lh sidelight circuit appears dead. Indicators and brake lights on that side work fine, rules out an earth issu...

Re: TopsyTurvey rams

Got it! I think 'demountable' is the keyword. Ag loaders are generally demountable, hence the modified plumbing. Industrials are fixed. As you were posting that Fred, I was looking through pics from Massey, New Holland, and John Deere and still couldn't work out why all the ags were one way round, a...

Re: TopsyTurvey rams

I had considered the single acting, but our Mil loader still had them the normal way around - what would be the advantage? Maybe it would add a little more weight to bring the arms down, but if it needed that extra then I'd be looking for a problem elsewhere! I did wonder if it was to keep them clea...
