Sean i know one thing...they dont like being overloaded, them 20 grand a pair too. Brian that low loader looks like one of Moores old outfits. Are you out in Norfolk or Essex ? Tracked dumper hire and Ramplings are two Marooka people i know of. I believe a large hirer of tracked dumpers has gone bust somewhere.

Trax's & Lord that job was back in 1999 at Bardney Lock near Lincoln for May Gurney river back stabilation. Trax's is right 20k a pair, track wear not to bad in wet conditions but when on dry hard ground & overloaded tend to tear. Those two belong to MJ Wilkinson @ Hambelton near Blackpool think we were paying 750 p/wk + track wear. We are based just outside Scunthorpe (Sunny Scunny) think the scania was an ex Royer tankers.

I think that unit may have been replaced again. I remember seeing it? in Leeds last year. Maybe they swapped the reg and bought another FH12, maybe that is the replacement

I know they have another big trailer, a Nooteboom I believe and a dolly for moving their big one.

I thought so, it was the biggest thing I'd ever driven it was chipped to around 500hp I believe, plenty of torque and never had any trouble with the stuff I was moving, up to 80t gross but generally running at under the 50t mark with the 36ton excavators they had then.

Here's the two 110 Scanias of Dick Hampton Angus -they were supplied by Unit Commercials of Salisbury who were Scania main dealers for the area at the time.The pics are from an article in Commercial Motor in 1972 The 1st pic was taken at the entrance to their yard at Blacknest near Alton Hampshire and I think the face shovel in pics 2 and 3 is a 54RB.
