    Somerset all the time now ... As I'm a civvie
    seem to recollect we had a pearson harvester some while back
    it had an xray type mackine on it thatwas supposed to get rid of stones and stuff...:whistling:
    lets just say it wasnt the best.
    now have a standen and it gets the job done, how ever how its going to cope this year in the conditions we have at home remains to be seen..
    will be home mid week to hopefully massist with making a start. as have 2 weeks leave booked..

    Standen still produce the QM machine, its a very basic harvester with mechanical drives on it so very little in the way of complicated drive systems unlike our Vision XS or the Enterprise, T2 and T3 machines. If you want a simple machine then its a good one to go for in my opinion, its also very lightweight however if you plan on lifting in very wet conditions there is no wheel drive option for them so you will be having to drag it through the mud. We stick to Standen machines as we find their service is much better than Grimme's and find them very good and as reliable as anything else out there, if any advice is needed then there is always someone at the end of the phone willing to help at Standen HQ.
