    Newbie Intro

    Hi all,

    Just stumbled on this forum which looks a great resource for newbs like me, not sure I will be able to contribute anything worthwhile though

    After reading a few threads, I'm thinking I should've done that before committing to buying a 2008 JCB 8014 but hopefully it will be good enough for what I need. I'll be using it for various jobs around a house I've just purchased needing a lot of renovation work, (spent 6 hours yesterday with a brush cutter and hardly made a dent in the job) and thought about hiring but would prefer the convenience of it being available whenever - ok, I also always fancied a digger, what man doesn't?

    Machine came with no manuals so about to purchase a service manual off ebay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/JCB-8014-8...EAAOSwLVZVzWfg Can anyone comment on version differences year to year? Do you think the differences will be small enough that it won't matter which year this manual is for, given I just want to give it a decent service?

    Also, if someone is kind enough to be able to email me one, I'd be happier to make a paypal payment to them for a couple of beers or make a donation to the forum admin to help with running costs.

    Many thanks
    Mike

    greetings Mike and welcome to the P&CF ..... plenty of advice to be had here ...... every man should have (and needs) a digger

    yer know what they say about boys and their toys
    If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!

    Hi Mike

    How is the house building going? - I have just started on a similar journey!

    Have you had success with your machine?

    Cheers

    Don't hold your breath Doug, Mike made his one and only post, looked back in the next day, and hasn't returned since.
    Good luck with yours, by the way, and welcome.
