    Well guys as some of you know I won my New Lorch 252 in a wager with my boss. I finally had a need to use it yesterday and it performed flawlessly, in life you certainly get what you pay for (or in my case what you win ) :cool:

    I just need to get around to figuring out the different setting now LOL

    A really big thanks to Matt for setting me up with this brilliant machine :clapping:

    The power needs turning up a bit, it will give you a flatter bead profile and less/no spatter. Get it into spray transfer easy enough on that thickness.

    Looks like they keep you busy repairing stuff.

    Something is either broke bent or worn out on a daily basis, it keeps me busy :D

    Im either driving hgv's and moving hazardous waste, operating 360's and loading shovels, fixing plumbing or anything else that comes up :laughing:

    In the summer its not bad...................... but laying in the mud in winter can be a bit of a drain


    whenever a problem arises and it needs to be sorted quick


    Improvise Adapt Overcome :cool:

    If you don't mind me asking what's the damage for a 252?

    some places (not all) on the tinterweb are asking around £1600 inc vat, if your interested in one give matt1978 a pm, he is the Lorch agent here in the UK and I am sure you could get a better deal thru him :whistle:

    Just found this old thread, and I'd like to boast that I am now the extremely proud owner of this very machine!

    I have nothing useful to add here - just bragging! :whistle:
