    Looks good, only thing I can see is when you finish scrolling down one page then click 2nd page -stays at bottom of page and does'nt go back to top of page,
    Minor but can put people off I think?

    I have just had a quick look at a MF 8240 with 100% back tyres. I think you meant 10%.

    Looks ok, the best feature in my opinion is including the asking prices. The typical POA you get on most websites is good for foost all.

    It looks great but it could be helpful if you also have the tractor search box for make and hp etc on the current stock page as well as the trade and export page.

    Plenty of pics and a price which is good cos it gives you a good idea whether a machine is worth an enquiry or a viewing.

    But if it's sold why not delete the listing, no point looking at things that are not for sale.

    Was just going to post that, It is great to see a website with prices, nothing worse than having to email or ring to see if a tractor is within budget, should have less time wasters contacting you too.

    Looks good but the mobile version is doing funny things like not fully showing the picture gallery and the pull down menu does not disappear when it loads a new page. The 'current stock' header also layers over the search options

    Spot on, looks grand.

    Just want to agree with the others who made the point about the sense in putting up a price, bound to save you guys a lot of hassle as well.

    "POA" at an ad is just a bollocks!

    Found this awkward too, perhaps the page number listing along the top too?
    Looks good, as above about prices, at least it gives an idea.
    Wish yous all the best with it.

    Thanks for the feed back guys.
    Including the price give the customer a better idea of what they can get with their cash, also lowers the amount of phone calls- you wouldn't believe what people think their budget will get them. People with POA must be a headache with folk ringing in trying to buy an 03 TS115 with a Q45 loader for 10,000. aagghh!

    Sold stuff is marked sold until it is paid for. all deals do not go through from agreement to completion, sold a MF to a Dutch customer on Monday, invoice sent and all, marked sold, it turns out he meant a different tractor,(despite many photos being forwarded on) so no longer sold.

    I will speak to the provider about taking the next page to the top of the listings today.

    8240 now 10% Tires.

    Farm side of things here is big enough, too big most days tbh. www.jalexherd.com

    will correct extensive asap.

    Not sure whats wrong with the mobile version.

    This is all good stuff and i appreciate it.

    Anything else?

    I wish all agri- dealers were like you and asked potential customers what they thought, as SO MANY web sites, lack colour, GOOD PHOTOS, detail-too fussy to navigate , NO PRICES, rubbish descriptions etc.etc. well done to you .

    It is an iphone 4 with the latest software. Also if you hold it in the phone position it does not show the pages 1-4 you have to hold the phone sideway ie landscape to see all of the page numbers.

    On the old site you could also choose how many items were listed on each page and I would always opt for 25 especially if having a browse on my phone rather than scrolling several pages as you tend to have a good level of stock to look at.

    Just had a look again off my pc using internet explorer and on the 'current stock' page the search box is not showing properly over the contact details which is saying begin skype highlight..
