And I thought my '74 4/4 had a lot of grease nipples!

My new toy was delivered yesterday; a secondhand 2.3t mini-digger as I have quite a few landscaping jobs to do. Labour costs in France are prohibitively high and hiring a digger works out quite expensive as well what with transport costs, so when a friend in the business said to buy a good one, then resell in a few years for not much loss that seemed like a good excuse to get a new big toy.

Anyway this machine, a Yanmar Vio 20-4 for those really interested, was delivered last night by the previous professional owner. He advised me to grease all jib and blade points more every time I fill the tank, so around every 15-20hrs. There are a lot of grease points to do, 19 in all!

Cheers from a happy bunny

Ooh, I'm very envious! I've always fancied a mini digger. Pics please!

Just to add to the fun .... with the one I use, the tracks are tensioned by greasing nipples behind the sprocket .... took me a while to work that one out ! smile

thats nice toy - my toy of choice wold be a cherry picker, always wanted one but can't find a reason strong enough to justify the purchase! The mini digger would be my second choice though and a dumper truck third

Nice bit of kit, I wish I could justify buying one.

I was told by a mechanic that my 65 Plus4 has 19 nipples. At least 17 are shown here.[Linked Image]
