Back on the Beast
As a sub-contractor, I provide relief driving services to a couple of firms. I am driving this JCB Fastrac carting paper sludge to farms for spreading. I prefer to drive this rather than their 8 wheeler Volvo FM12 tipper. I am only on this for this week.;-)

A neat place to store the pin hitch, the hook is used most of the time.

Biggest problem there is you have to bend the guard to get it in and out or it gets scratched, so we don't use it.

Has it been good to you ?
We had many fastracs 1993-1998 when we were contracting in the UK and they were excellent , never used these newer ones .

Hi BLUEPAINT, It has 12400hrs on it so it has been a busy motor. Considering it pulls it's own weight plus the trailer and loaded up with 13500kgs of sludge, totaling 25400kgs then I suppose yes it has been good. It has had some trouble though, it recently had a new engine, gearbox overhaul, plus a host of other issues. It works 6 - 7 days a week. This can include, spreading sludge, fertilizer, ploughing or hauling a Redrock low loader with a JCB JS130 sat on it. I must say it is great fun to drive once you have gained your sea legs for the spongy ride. I have reached 48mph in this motor down a slight incline, but it is good for 41 loaded all day. Would I buy one? No, I want a John Deere 7530. But first I need the work and money to buy it. The Fastrac is ideal for road work, not as good for field work. I will be posting a couple more photos soon and also a video on You Tube. Regards, JDD.

You surprise me , Ours were on 1500 acres potatoes and other veges and grain with contracting and plant on the side with little more than brakes issues .
