Re: Druid’s New Duck – ’99 Hydrema-Wiemar M1500

Gra,

That girl has been seriously screwed up. As Grifferr states, there should be three pumps on her.

Here's copy of my pump circuits for the Pel-Job (the whole hydraulic system is unchanged...

Re: Druid’s New Duck – ’99 Hydrema-Wiemar M1500

Gra,

If you’re going to store the wood in bags you’re going to have to get vented bags instead. Timber sweats in the builders bags and when you go to it in 6 months it’ll be nothing but white...

Re: Best rust killer and inhibitor?

I've tried most on the market at some time or other, in my opinion you just don't get better than Bilt Hamber.

If its being treated in-situ then Bilt Hamber deox-gel...

Re: New toy tractor

You'll be surprised what you can achieve with them given the size.

Re: Druid’s New Duck – ’99 Hydrema-Wiemar M1500

Funny how things get lost in translation..
I’ve always known the expression as a “Heath. Robinson” idea.

Never knew I was wrong or where the expression came from.

Re: so basically they're bust

Yep, it was on the local media yesterday.

Lagan have held on to the housebuilding part of the business which is probably the most lucrative, but perhaps also the most volatile.

Re: Mecalac 8cx on ebay

I doubt it. Judging by the height of the knuckle mount there would be very little rotation before a ram body would be in contact with the boom.
I think that's an original fitment.

Re: Mecalac 8cx on ebay

Don't see any pipes for it. Would a knuckle ram be an optional extra on it?

Re: Mecalac 8cx on ebay

Is the boom ram resting on the front of the engine cover and putting just enough weight on to twist it slightly on the centre pivot. :confused:

And if it's a none runner, how did they get it...

Graham,

Lagan are one of the largest and arguably best of the construction companies in N. Ireland and further afield. The groups have their fingers in several pies.

Re: Thwaites 6t dumper cutting out

Would have thought fuel starvation the most likely culprit. Check filters and any crud sieve in the base of the tank.

Might also be air getting into the fuel line, although that would usually...

Re: Drainage Channels

If you know the manufacturer of the channel go to their website.
Nearly all provide throughput flow for their channel.
