    Yeah most of them I ve seen were rough enough, it's a neat little thing.
    They shared some drive components with older Claas combines and the Jaguar SF so bits should be easy enough to get for the drive unit, and I guess standard Mengele parts in the harvester section.

    It’s 40 cube,I’d have to remove some roof to fit it in one of my buildings because it’s 150mm too high,I’d also have to fit an elevator to fill a trough,in reality I’m a couple of years off buying it as I’m planning on a new feed passage so I’ll not need an elevator.

    If your interested check the front gearbox for leaks as the front reservoir looks empty,otherwise it’s very good value.

    What height is it? I’m constrained to 3.2m.

    It looks good value in fairness. Transport would be fairly saucy for me, but it’s coming in at good value.
    There wouldn’t be any need for me go see it...is it far from you? :).

    Axles wouldn't make much of a difference if the shaft is taken out, if anything I think it's a plus as they are designed to take big weight. as for the brakes I see a 2nd hose or am I seeing double. Either way it's still decent value in my eyes

    I drive one infrequently. Animal of a tractor.
    It came onto a farm second hand at maybe 5-6 hrs old or thereabouts. Never gave any bother other than a sensor for front suspension and a leak in an oil pipe.

    Not sure but there was some mods done on them at some stage - something to do with the engine stiffness and torsional strain but someone on here might know of it. Maybe that why your one there had a new engine ?

    That’s interesting.
    It’s really cheap horsepower and I want it for a job for no more than 400hrs a year.
    Has it got a Sisu engine?

    Did the modification work?
