I think the hydradig is a great concept but which has a very limited market. Jcb made their name and grew to the business they are almost entirely off the back of the 3cx. In recent years the 3cx have continued to decline mainly due to the 6 to 8 ton 360 popularity. They do imho have themselves partly to blame though, I would still have a 3cx if they weren't such an oncost due to reliability/poor build quality. The hydradig is the attempt to get this lost market share back with a new idea. Trouble is they are more tool carrier than digger and the uk market doesn't really you utilise that kind of machine especially at the price of a hydradig.
Does anyone know the price of the pot hole pro yet, I bet its easy over 100k
If that's the case the hydradig is to big to be a replacement for a 3cx
Tbh 3cx are to big now
Road works are so restricted a 2 cx would be a better bet nowadays or even the skid steer one on some sites
Tbh for the work we do the concept of a hydradig is awesome but it would just be to big to work in a single carriageway
I'm surprised they haven't bought out more models yet
A 5t one would be awesome for highway work
Especially if they did a 50 or 60k version

I can work in one lane with the case admittedly it's all of it 😮

Bound to be plenty flow to the undercarriage on a hydradig engine pump etc is all down there.
There's plenty of oil on the bottom of any duck mine has inch hoses on the bottom half to run the travel motors I wonder if a diverter could be fitted so it would run a planer on the blade off the yravel pedal and travel using one of the other circuits

Physically yes but under chapter 8 your on 6t machine max now
You need enough room for an average dimwit to maneuver their 4 meter wide audi passed then a row of cones then half a meter then a line of barriers then if you have a pavement you need a line of barriers down the kerb line
