So Rob and Andy finally killed it, I can get my Bucket off them now! That was a fantastic machine for me, and I did some serious hours on it for the next owner.
Hope you get it back to life.

Eddie.

I could do with a narrow bucket and a Quick hutch would be nice

That's a real old Geith draining bucket, I've never used one as good and it fits straight on 13 tonners. I'd rather hang onto it sorry.

It was a brilliant machine, I got great service from Fauld Engineering in Uttoxeter who made pins, bushes and even bushed the tipping links for very little money on the one I purchased after that. I don't know if they're still going but worth a call.

THAT sounds like a plan, worth following up on
