Re: Christmas

I'd have been pleased if it had been deliberate. By the way, Christmas dinner looked good.

Re: Working methods - UK vs World

I'm talking aboit CTL's, (compact track loaders) and they're far from crap in the wet. They only act like dodgems if you drive them like one. As for the wheeled skiddies, wouldn't give one house room.

Re: Working methods - UK vs World

I've recently spent a lot of time on Cat 289 & 299 CTL's, and looking back at most of the jobs I've worked on in the past, can honestly say there on most of those jobs having a CTL would have saved...

Re: P.s 2

Can't see why anyone would be against help for Heroes. Whether you're a volunteer or a conscript, getting shot at and blown up hurts just as much. The government knows more about post traumatic...

Re: Hyundai Robex 140 LC-9

Re: Hyundai Robex 140 LC-9

Which machine? You will see Mitsis in some machines branded as Cat, but you won't see a Perkins branded as a Mitsi or vice-versa. Unless someone has been playing naughties....

Re: interesting and well overdue

Last night, just getting dark, I followed a John Deere pulling a three ton Ifor, two different reg. nos., a five ton Volvo excavator with one knackered strop over the front end, nothing holding the...

Re: Small Dozer vs Tracked Skidsteer

There were loads of those 450's round my part of the country at one time, but I haven't seen one in years. Can you still get all of the undercarriage and transmission parts? The boxes had a habit of...

Re: JCB high-vis dumper.

I'd like to see a video of it loaded with gault clay and patted down. I expect when it tips the op will be pressed up the windscreen. When the complaints roll in it'll be the ops fault for carrying...

Re: Plantworx 2017

Taking away the fact that I'm an old fart learning something new, the rollers didn't seem very progressive, the tilt and rotate seemed to go round in lumps. Nev the demonstrator didn't have too many...

Re: Plantworx 2017

You're right, Gra, but I doubt I'm going to have the luxury of the time or space now. I haven't given up learning new stuff, but I've got to be realistic. I stood looking at that Menzi Muck and...

Re: Plantworx 2017

Re: Parker hydraulic swager

Why not keep it simple and use Parker fittings? A hose supplier would be a more reliable source of info, if we tell you wrong and you get a critical failure, then what?
