better day than forecast ..... positively glorious in fact

First job .... sort the bloody mower, 'fore I could use it on all the little bits, before a 'visitation' ....



belt guard flapping loose under the deck! ... had collected a serious quantity of grass and thrown the belt for the wheel drive!

took as long to get the bloody blade off, as it did to sort the rest and re-profile the bolt head ...



WTF put such a small head on the bolt is beyond me .... self tightening in use and takes some undoing the 14mm AF is now 13mm AF ... a nice tight 13mm ..
next time the mig is 'in play', it's getting a 20mm nut welded onto it for some 'proper' purchase !!!

have had Alex here all afternoon with his bed he's building for his truck ...
and a nice job he's making of it too, but without a 'Druid style' bench to build on, the heat had got the better of the main runners and it was in need of a little 'magic' to normalise it and get the curves out of it .......



some judicious application of some large clamps, combined with strategically placed packers and an experienced eye had it looking a lot more like it ought to/was intended .



nice and flat ..... this is gonna look the bollox, once completed ..... wheel arches tomorrow!!

some may have noticed the genny has spun through 90 deg.s and a bit more out the way of the bench ....
Picked it up with the dynamometer this afters ...... anyone care to hazard a guess on the weight .... with a full tank of fuel (circa 300 litres)??

Also allowed me to fully open the front door, so's it can get the cleaning treatment, like the rest of it ...



as promised ... a decent pic of one very large silencer ....



it's no wonder you can barely hear it running ..... tha's some box!!!!

so ........ who wants to join the Drema owners club - ultra exclusive - especially this model





https://www.machinio.com/listings/30...achinio-alerts

£18,547 - 4,800 hrs - '99 ...... Not a dear m/c IMHDO and very probably negotiable - looks well cared for.
Same grab as I had with mine - Hydrema's own

And before anyone asks ....... the dash is even less legible than mine, for identifying the 'mystery switch'

Only down side is it's 900 miles away - in Germany !!!!
