i see the kh007 was also sold as a kh21. they were a failure in the uk with only 80 sold in the 10 years they were made.

well here are some pictures.
she cost me a bloody fortune , its a long story... i seen her on ebay for 2000 buy it now, missed it as it was so cheap it sold in an hour of listing.
a week or so later it was back on and sold to me for 3150 plus vat (gutted) at least i get the vat back.
then it struck me, when i was looking at pictures of another kh007 that i seen it before!, so sure enough i checked jcb diggers website she was sold a year ago to first ebay seller for 3250!, it had only completed 80 hrs between 3 previous owners!. its amazing that i seen the same machine on the internet through 3 previous sellers and a re paint!!
i knew it was as the rust patches and paint jobs and engine hrs were the same!, there was also rubber gaurd zip tied over hydraulic hoses that gave it away!. so i think after seeing it on the net for so long, it was just ment to be mine ha ha!
she has cost me a flippn fortune to date, but i dont mind as ill fix it up and keep it forever!
i have bought new bucket links, and bushes.
a also bought 3 new buckets from great ebay seller mcs plantspares.
i got full sticker kit and according to dealer all parts are available.
one of the idlers bearings were shot so ive fixed that also.
when the funds permit, ill treat her to a new bonnet and seat, but this could be a wile as parts are bloody expensive!!. seat 120 plus vat and bonnet 360 plus vat!!!!.
but otherwise im very pleased with it. it is much more stable than my last micro and has far better sweet running little 8hp kubota twin diesel. plenty of power too!!
anyway, here she is...

Hi. I have recently bought a KH16 w. It is a 3 and a half ton wheeled excavator. There is virtually no information on the web about it. Does anyone else have one. I could do with some advice. Cheers Bob.
