Default Cat D8L

Hey Up

Were in the process of buying back our D 8L in the next few weeks but need to fit a ripper.
I think I have sourced a 4 piston m/s ripper of a 9H will it fit? I was told they do.
Does any one know where to get a ripper valve and all associated gubbins and any decent hands to fit it for me .
Any help much appreciated.

There!s a few about Mark. Blackwells have several N's, Barton plant in Northants have an N or two. Searles have an L and H's and there is another L in Sussex in a chalk pit. A fair few H and K series all over. Roly has seven.

Steve, I think messia corp in Essex has a ripper on an old 8K. they advertise in the Resale.

Lynchey il try those boys there both fairly local to me.
I heard that Steve Holiday is good on Volvo dump trucks.
Trax I have found a ripper off a D9H I'm led to believe they fit D8Ls as there realy a D9.
Is messiah breaking the 8k as it's the ripper valve and spools I'm after.

I'm also looking for a hydraulic 463 box if any one knows of one.
Got a big top soil strip starting in a months time and the 8&box wld be ideal for the short haul stuff.

Cheap if it's 3300 for the two. I have a real corker bought for half that amount. It is said that D8's pulling 435's pack the muck in too tight and there are problems ejecting. If converted to hydraulic this should not be an issue.

Trax

What is the heaped m3 of the 435 is it a box more suited to a d7 size tractor.
