Saw this on my travels today, a hitachi 200 dredging a canal in Dublin, it appears to be one of those floating excavators, though i could be wrong!! An interesting bit of kit all the same.

Yeah that would be a floater, the tracks have watertight chambers in them and act like pontoons and the tracks are strung around them. The city here use to have at least one for dredging sewage or something gross like that. lol

Looks a big machine for that canal but a featute in earthmovers showed them loading direct in to trucks on the road over the footpath, verge and banks. But looks like he's into a dumper on far bank ?

Surprising how much canal there is around dublin

Looks similar to one that was on Land and Waters stand at Hillhead, but that was on bit smaller pontoons as its only about a 8 ton mc IIRC - (think i have posted a photo in another thread on here or else on *** before) - heres a link to it

Believe it or not thats exactly what happened!!! I wasnt best pleased to find it as flat as a pancake, and having to take a half hour walk into college with a hangover! I set the clock again just havnt got around to doing the date yet, its on the to do list

Bulldozer, i havnt seen that article but i suspect its on this canal just down a bit further where there was a lot of work done, probably a year ago or so. From what i could make out they were loading the dumper which took it to a stockpile where a hitachi duck was loading trucks. There are two canals in dublin the royal, and the grand. This work was along the grand canal.

Yes the article is on the web site link above !

I may have been going round in circles and crossed them both several times As i refuse to pay the tunnel fee & road signs are not brilliant when cutting across town. I must have been at last 5 differnt ways from the N1 to the ferry terminals

The City looked well last time in the dark with all the lights up in the centre for Christmas.

We were looking through our old photographs this morning and stumbled across a few of some of our old machines over the years. There are a few more of a few trucks and track machines somewhere that i havnt yet managed to find but will keep searching! And yes that is me at the wheel of the 3cx, even at that age i knew what i wanted to be when i grew up
