Were there two versions of this implement? Does anyone know why or for how long each was produced? Should both have a Twose sticker on them or was one unbadged? Reason I asked is that I've seen one with splayed stabilising legs and one with 'square' ones.

This subject has been touched on in another topic but there are a few variants. The Twose one with the blue frame with splayed legs and orange digger arm was the first one. There was an Autoway yellow one and another with a red diagonal striped decal, a later Road Series one, some with green frame and brown frame and the ones with straight legs were in the sets. Straight legs to save on the width of the box apparently. The production dates I think are listed in Peter Barrons book from a few years back.

Yes, there was a straight-legged Twose one but this was originally in a set with a tractor. the splayed legged one came on its own. The accurate representation are the wide or splayed leg type as in real life gives more stability.
