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?
