I know the old jcb stuff wasnt to great, but i put about 1300 hours on the old companies js160(2006) and probably 500 on the jz140(2007) with no problems. We were hesitant when we bought the first one, but man it was a great machine. I hear the 2006 and up stuff is a huge jump from the older models. I even went to there factory in Georgia two years ago where they build the backhoes and was very impressed. Im trying to find the machine on the net now for a pic. I know the add said farm use only on it too.
