Re: Magnum 8 on ebay

Hi Dan Glad you got it, I cant get my photo to upload at the moment but the bit your describing sounds like the Y shaped spreader. Mines fairly crude but looks to be original.

Re: Magnum 8 on ebay

Oops, must admit I noticed afterward it was a different shape. Like you say would be nice to get some more Moths on here! Last season I didnt manage to get much use out of the Wombat but hoping to a bit more this season!

Ps. Im sure theres someone on here who likes collecting Moths ;)

Re: what is this?

Hi only just spotted this you were right it was a zoom, (it was me selling it) we took it as a part exchange for its combi trailer. It didnt have a second mast step and only the one position for stays.
Thanks Tom

Re: int moth on ebay

I think it would be worth viewing first as it has sold a few times (he even has positive feedback from last time!) but obviously the deals have not gone through. I got outbid last time before I bought mine so got that instead, but would have had that one if i could of. Hope it goes well and someone ...

Re: Laser woes.

Personally I think it was probably the conditions that made it seem twitchy as I only found that a couple of times, but its nothing co...
