Great minds think alike as I see 44 MTI just made the post e within munutes of mine. he must have been typing his post in at the same time.

Plus I have a nice set of 1075's with 25hrs on them for sale, ready to go at MTI factory.
with your wallet Oz, what he said. It makes perfect sense.

If you were to go the 1075 route I'd check into swapping over to the high-rev hydraulic rollers! I've heard of few builders doing this on the 1075.
