I think that's a Muir hill A5000 or similar denomination. I worked for various farmers who had one of these but never had to operate one thankfully.

I believe they had roughly 2t lift capacity at the front. They were being demobbed in the 70s and 80s and were available with or without the backhoe attachment. Can't say I would have fancied being sat on the back of it with bullets flying about. I think they were a bit of an alternative to the ag spec telescopic manitou's and jcbs but nowhere near as versatile. Can't comment on performance in soft going but I think they were capable of rolling in silage clamps OK.

thanks for the clarification, I think it is a pioneering machine of genieri, a telehandler ancestor, a primordial handy toolset door, I think it has plus backhoe loader type backhoe, i do not know the true performance of this machine, not I knew it, I think I have a rigid chassis, as you rightly said you could be used as a farm machinery farm service or for a farm, I think it's okay to lift move moving freight heavy loads cleaning and other business maintenance work, thank you your precious intervention
perkins engine?

Had an ex army A5000 from 93 till late 96,was a cracking machine but a bit limited with only 2 forward gears,it had a Perkins 6354.3 mated to an Allison gearbox.

We sold it to Lloyd loaders to be used for mine clearance.

do not you think it has good performance and good performance as a company service machinery? it would serve for handling goods, lifting unloading load handling and cleaning jobs and small earthmoving work




in the used market I have seen many military loaders with few hours of work well equipped, even with winch and accessories forks forklift crane and the like, bucket drott 4 in 1 you would recommend

There's some play in that back actor, swaying about like a pendulum.
