Your right Ollie, Mason Engineering did two iirc, I spoke to a guy there about the conversion, interestingly they had never gone any further with the idea, lack of demand perhaps?

I found it on Molsons web page when looking at Hyundai machines machines,but i see they do the same for Kobelco
Don't know if it's them who do it or manufacturer supplied
JUst seemed a pretty good idea for a 360,after all it's pretty standard now on a back hoe

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.

It looks like an Ulrich Attachments dipper. Or a very similar design.
