Only just seen all this Shovelhands. Congratulations on the Nox, I really like the look of this unit, and it would certainly have been on my list of candidates.

How‘s the 86C performing: Would you buy one again?
86c hasn’t missed a beat, well apart from when I got a bit short on diesel trying to get out of that pond job🤦‍♂️, the exit was through a ditch, some interesting angles and a lot of swearing when she spluttered to a stop! Only myself to blame....
Anyway, the answer is yes, id buy another, most definitely, if only for the TAB boom, it’s a huge asset to the machine imo, but not it’s only redeeming feature by any means. I still stand by my decision to buy it, despite the JCB bashing that goes on, it was the right machine for me at the time and I think that would still be the case.
I am a little intrigued as to what they have changed/improved on the -2 model, I suppose I’d consider changing it at some point, but not at the moment, and tbh it’s still low hours and in very nice condition so I’m in no hurry.
