The second compactor on the back did,nt last long after the D8
towed them back on top,while walking to the tea bus we heard a
bang and saw a cloud of smoke behind the Bomag, then we came
across a trail of oil and metal,she,d put a leg out of bed,they
dont like working on there side for too long:D

Yes Ian,brings back good memories:)

Yes Richard,it looks dodgy the driver climbing about the 955 but
i,m certain the D8,s chained to it,although my memories fading a bit
after 30 years:D

Yes Sean,we cant change the law of gravity;)

That was,nt the first time this chap got into trouble with a 955
we had to rescue him on more than one occasion,this time with
the D6, maybe he took the cab off for a quicker exit, you can
imagin what he,s saying looking down at the track "o shit":D

Fantastic pictures as always Roly.

Bet at the time you took them you never expected them to one day be available for viewing world wide.
