HI Jim,
No,I've never seen either the FL4 or FL5.,although I know a guy who owned a FL5 Drott.
I assumed they were sold mainly in Europe.
I like all the very small crawlers.They do good work for their size.
I'm sure your FL4 would be good to operate.Does it have ripper & 4in1 bucket?

The Fiat AG crawlers (605/555,451) were popular here ,among farmers in hilly country.The 70CI were around in some decades ago & were well liked.
I briefly owned a very old FL7 Drott about 17 years ago. It had a pony start engine,& ran very well.
Operated a FL14E in the past & found it to be a great pusher.

Maybe you should look for spare parts in Italy.I think there are some Fiat part resellers over there.

Jim

Yeah, the FL4 are great little machines, very handy, have rippers on counterweight (detachable) but just an ordinary, fixed bucket.

Keep checking the Italian Ebay but only seen one come up in years!

Going to try to fix the engine, will post the outcome :).

Cheers

Jim
