Furukawa FL80 Loader

Post #1 by JimInOz » Wed Feb 18, 2009 1:35 pm

HI all,
I'm looking at a small Furukawa FL80 loader,& wondered if anyone has had experience with this model,or other Furukawas.
I know of the FL70 & 90,but never knew they made an FL80 model.

Also,who in Europe/ UK can supply Furukawa spares?
Any info or opinions are appreciated.

Jim

HI jim , is that the one on ebay? MY experance was with the 70 ,years ago IT seemed underpowered but I worked for a local council and One operator used to get put on it as punishment . HE would abuse that little machine trying to break it so he could get off it and it stood up to what he gave it . I have only ever seen two in the flesh and they where both 70's. ian.

Hi Ian,
Yes,it got sold.A good price for a good little loader.
There was a few of the FL 70s & 90s in Qld & they appear to keep going.
Well made,but parts are a problem,I think.
