It has at least restored my confidence that I know a heap of shit hydraulic system when I drive one....and that is exactly what the Eco is/was.
hi polish.
I take it from those comments you have tried one. I was impressed with the trial machine we had for a week transformed the hydraulics smooth powerfull and fast with no buttons to press or switches to do and no need for lots of engine revs.
just a sitemaster spec machine and was more than a match for my present contractor.

yes Chris..it goes back tomorrow.....i have to say its very good....uses a huge piston pump with 165 litres of flow....I wonder where they've seen that...due to the smaller ram sizes on a 3cx it makes it very quick....yet very smooth.....I d swap mine tomorrow if it weren't for the tier4... Variable geometry turbos are notorious for being trouble and when you watch the turbo linkage dance and chatter away when revving I wonder how reliable it will be long term...one the whole though...a massive improvement on the Eco which is ...??????
