Are they as good as the advertising suggests? Currently have a spike/roller handler that's due a change and interested to hear any users opinions on them or that type of handler. Main jobs are loading fusion bales onto trailers and unloading/stacking at other end and a little loading out of stacks in the winter onto trailers again

You will have no regrets and never again use the roller handler

I’d be the same as the rest and say you won’t want to use the rollers again. Dad thought I was mad buying it when the roller one we have is still good enough but it hasn’t been used since we got the jm. He goes for it without a second thought now

Around how much are they selling at? And would the JM be superior in comparison to say scullys model or any of the trunks?

really would love to know how the ram placement can compare between the 2. scully has the ram on top and the jm has it at the back. i wonder if there's a difference between how they load and unload from a trailer

You'd knock the bales off the far side of the trailer with the scully.
The way the jm sweeps in is very well done.

Lad local to me making them also , he sold 30 last year and i think he has 60 going out this year so far, very well made and the angle seems to be better on it for unloading bales , the trunk also sits tighter to the loader when on the road. Have a JM one and get on well with it but if I was going again I’d definitely consider the other one . Fairbrother engineering is what he goes under but can’t find any adds for them.

A lad local to me started making them last year . I don't know much about his trunk handler , but he makes a super tine grab .

Watched a S/H TR3 make €1600 plus 5% comission plus vat this evening at auction, that's €1680 plus vat and has to be collected, a new one is €1410 plus vat delivered.
I was watching it too. Mental that stuff was making more than new. Also 2 well used loader buckets went for more than equivalent new

The quicke bucket was split where the lh bracket attached, only thing worth money was the class 3200 mower at €9950.

I saw there was something up with it alright. Hard to see in the photo. The sellers must have have delighted. I'll have to enter some junk pre loved gear in one soon.

I looked at all of it on Monday, the Major slurry pump came with a fine ball of wire and assorted shite wrapped around the impeller. I'm tempted to have a clearance sale.....

You could have all new gear for very little cost if the old gear sells like tonight!
