Hi ian

The shop in Cullar with the guns on the side is Thomas' Ferretaria, 500yds along from the Montecarlo on the same side. Or try Mures, Roman sometimes has a selection. Also Ebay.es has some starting at around 160 euros and about 16 euros delivery. Hope this helps.

Ive repaired and serviced many of these in the Uk. The big killer is hard /stoney ground. The transmission casings tend to be quite light alloy which can crack and leak oil. If this happens its game over. So just be aware when using them. Ideally break up any new earth first.

make sure replacement tynes are easily available too. Its surprising how quick they can wear down.

Thanks, Dave. Our 'patch' is only a small size and theres a few stony bits, which I have sorted with a mattock! I take your point re; the casings and will watch out.
I've bought a small (40cm / 65cc/ 3hp) two stroke (I'll port it!!) rotovator via e bay, 199 all in, bargain!! Thanks for the tip, Ian.
All I need now is a tidy (ish) Lada Niva petrol to turn into the Beast of the Campo! Try and get one that's not knackered!
