Doesn’t matter what you have you can find someone who says it’s a poor machine
Did you pick up a bargain after nash be a good match for the 3600!
Well lad I spoke to said some parts on the machine were weak
I hire 13t machines in now and again,it's either doosan or komatsu,I prefer to drive the doosan,I don't think there's much in any of them,I have a Hyundai 13t machine now and it's very nice to use almost on a par with my old js130.
Had this lad ever owned or used one? Or just a fan of another make and every other make is inferior?
There's a guy here who has several working in the forestry, some with winches on for skylining, he likes them anyway!
No I didn't anyway! Was cheap but I don't think it would be much good for feeding and be very hard to go back from the Landini to that when mucking out sheds!
He is well seasoned driver of360s
Very tidy 50h. Hard to beat this one....
Not a dear little machine either
Hard not to be a bit skeptical about the hours though
It was easily beat a few hours before that ad came on.
The holy grail of 50Bs two stick controls, 4in1 bucket. clean, for 3 grand.
Funnily enough the ad didnt last long, I just happen to still have that browser tab open here
That would be one of the last 50 b s made .not alot of difference in it and the 50 h above really much the same machine
The drivermust have worn hob nailed boots and weighed 30 stone , to account for that amount of wear in 2500 hours on the seat and floor mats...
I think I know the seller . Very well known in equestrian circles.
I am fairly sure that digger gave a while with a horse trainer very near here , at least 10 years ago . He couldn't drive a nail , never mind a digger. I think it was for sale for €4500 , and for quite a while.
Very straight for its age.
@4255 , on late 50 B being similar to the 50 H. In most ways yes , but wouldn't the 50 H have the superior Power Shuttle transmission ?
There was a 50b mark 2 as well and I thought it was only those that had the two lever backhoe but Im probably wrong now!!
It was very good value at 3k I think.
i thought the last of the 50b,s had an all yellow cab and possibly 2 doors but maybe i dreamt that
I was wondering the same thing myself, the 50B would have the Reversomatic trans , surely the Powershuttle was in use for the 50H?
50b mark 2 had the all yellow cab but still only one door!
I always heard that the torque trammision s in the mf digger s were bullet proff
The later 4 speed Powershuttle seems to have a good reputation, it's a neat design.
We have a 50B Mark II and she is still going strong after 34years!!
40 years ago they made all machinery to last years . Now they make all fancy looking shit wit curves no square edges that after 7 or 8 years use u have to replace it
we have a Massey Ferguson 3305 torque digger that's either 1968 or 69. In every day use and running well
Its more like 36 years old. 50Ds came out in 83.
I have a 1971 MF 50 , which is essentially the same as your digger. Mine is torque also. In everyday use as well.
Theres 40 year 135s and 165s in every second yard in the country that will still be going when the 191s are banjaxed
While your here. Any three foot digging buckets to be got anywhere with reasonable teeth?
