Yeh,

I bought the EC210C ladt year at SED and i thought that was good but if you have one but this new model next to it and it blows it outta the water!

Enige cover opens to reveal detailed engine and theres 2 opening side panels with full detail of Hyd pump's and filters! Its sturdy as hell too! I just wish motorart would use proper pins and not the crappy grip pin rivits they insist on using!

Nice one Joe,great looking machine.
Hopefully get me one at spalding. Are the hydraulics stiff enough to support shears?
cheers

Mik, The hydraulics are very stiff but soon slacken up!

Still looks good though.
Same as the(or mine at least)ec700,had to replace rams.
Do the tracks run well?
cheers

The tracks are amazing! They roll on grippy surfaces and seen very strong! I think they are the same tracks as they used on the JS220LR with a new style undercarriage frame!

The rams dont really need replacing but i would advise replacing the pins that hold the bucket linkages on as they are useless!
