    And here I was reading this thread not considering it was 6 years old! I don't know anything about jcb and I like my NH a lot, but I've seen a JCB dealer nearbyish, where I haven't seen a NH.

    JCB hydraulic power is higher than Hollands. Are they both CR fuel injection. I preffer CR, it saves 5 littre fuel per hour.
