cheers, ye they were a fair beast of a machine, we had two of them on hire on that particular job breaking rock for a few months. Unfortunatly i wasnt the full time driver on her, i was mainly on ducks though i put up a few hours covering the main operator. Nice machine, but according to the men who operated them with a bucket on the cat 345 was a far superior machine

slight update, ben busy with college work so havnt been doing much "work" lately, but as the ground has dried up and im on holidays i decided to tackle a bit of a job ive been waiting to do since christmas! Just cleaning out part of a ditch and filling it with pebble and two 4 inch land drains, hopefully i'll get some better pictures tomorrow!

Also made a bit of progress on my old mini digger, its taken ages but finally the blade is fixed and back on, started sorting the many leaks she has and hopefully i'll get her fully operational within the next week or so, just need a few nixers to keep me going on the weekends now and i'll be right :D

there you go mate, shes an smc 1.5 tonne, bought new by my father and uncle around 1996, i took ownership after a cousin had it on a house build and made bits of her, ive painted it up and sorted out most of the problems at this stage. As a mini digger its terrible to be honest, good mitsubishi engine but the rest of her isnt great but its been a good hobby over the winter and hopefully if things go to plan this summer i might have something a bit better! oh and the plywood door panel is an optional extra :D

ive just realised those pictures are terrible! i'll try get some decent one next time im in the yard!

Re: Various Pictures
Weren't SMC's based on Hanix machines?

Re: Various Pictures
This one isnt a hanix anyway, though i know some of them are, i think someone said in another thread that it was the later machines but im not certain to be honest.
