Itís been done very nicely, and even the counter weight on the back is done by them. They used to turn out some very bespoke stuff. The one we have belonged to a ground working firm on building sites, and had been looked after very well. Not sure if it was lack of demand for them or just that they were just ahead of there time, cos starting to see more of them around now. Old man also has a 130 hitachi with extending dipper, but that came from the factory and was made by hitachi themselves.
