hi graham,they are atheny waggons(correct spelling?)i am fairly certain they used to belong to a friend of mine mony goddard sadly gone now, he bought them at ritchies auctions in holland many yrs ago and used them in his tip then one by one they were parked up and the little darlings valeted them, they were sold in his sale 3yrs ago bruce attfield brought them and that was the last i saw them,thought they had been cut or exported, nice to see them again.he was something else i am sitting here writing this with tears in my eyes but laughing my head off thinking about the stunts he pulled, he was not every ones cup of tea but he was my friend

they could well be the same ones ,as the owner has a large collection of cat equipment,and i know he has purchased stuff from bruce before
these pictures were taken nearly 3 years ago ,i must try and get back there to see what else is new,there were lots of track shovels in various states of repair

Good old Kockums gear! I worked on a fair amount of their forestry machines, far tougher than old boots!

I noticed in another pic that you had a dump trailer on a Fastrac that appeared to be made from a Leedsall dumper. Did you ever have the whole tractor/dumper unit, or the Hudson built axle hitch like you have the Shawnee Poole one?

hi dave, i brought the trailer with the original hitch and with youthfull impulse cut it off,21 yrs ago,it was like a giant uj, the trailer had two stage rams that were double acting on the first stage,it would tip up verticle then you just pulled itover center with the first stage, but the rams were allways leaking and i put single acting rams on with less travel, but reliable we don,t do a lot of road work so i manage with it why spend 5g when that trailer cost me 700,any information you have would be great ps i could not open your attacments on the other side before i got the kiss of death

Hayne,

You should now have the Shawnee Poole parts lists in your email, and I'll look out a complete Leedsall picture later today.

yes go back, he was one of a kind they broke the mould when they made him, mind you the people that brought stacks of skips with the top one full of rubbish at his first sale and asked where do we tip the rubbish to be told you brought the skips and the rubbish might not agree your kit is always a credit to you coles operators regards dehane

go back,i like tips a lot, i was in charge of one in the early 1990's,i say in charge of it cos there was olny me there with a cat 943.it was olny tiped on by one company tipping waste foundry sand.i had a small cabin with a telly and gas heater,i only recieved around ten loads a day.I used to watch crap telly programes 'chuckle brothers'.Anyway the solitude got to me in the end and i ended up in the nut house for a while with depression,but 19 years later i'm ok and still love to get on a tip or two.What machine did you push the guys tip off with?
