Bang on gents. I don’t need to take the hammer to the beeper now!,
Caught me out on the 3CX a couple of times, new machine, buzzer going off. Phoned the fitter, he said have you cleaned the dash? I had and because the switch is on it’s own it’s not clear which way is on or off.

Well pics will follow when I get time to slap the decals on!!! Been very busy preparing site for the pilling rig due next week. Braking news is I am going idig before Tilty!

Early impression of machine is good. Loading lorries with the 3ft bucket and it is well balanced. With grading bucket on it is finding the heavy clay hard going. So quick switch to the smaller bucket to rough it down then just trim with the grader. Most annoy thing is not much gap between the blade and cab. Been caught out a few times with spoil over the blade catching as you slew. Trouble is operator rather than machine I guess! Seems to be reasonable on fuel with the different modes making a difference when you need the extra power. Getting used to lifting the tracks again to turn as again, in the sticky stuff!!

Idig looks like a proper timesaver for when your on your own a lot or even with 2 of you your man can stay on dumper or he can get on with something else instead of being stuck on the staff - I'm going to look at putting one across the 8t and 3t when we get going proper again in spring.
