May well be that after a chat and agreement to a meet with a trial on a machine that both parties can come to an agreement that suits both.

Half the time the enquirer wont bother turning up because they cannot be arsed or its too far or too many hours or traffic was bad or dog was sick ffs.
Can understand what you're saying Rob ... in my case the old 'bod' just would'nt tolerate it!!

In better times (health-wise)/'my younger days', would think now't of being in a cab at 4 am, en route to a site 3 hours away for a 7 o'clock start ... do a day and then haul her the 3 hrs home again. ........... as you rightly say ..... very few will get off their arses and get out there .... too busy complaining about why they can't !!

Hell of an endorsement there Boyo ... Have to say that, everyone who has any involvement with our 'Oracle', always, to a man, speaks very highly of him and I've certainly cause to thank him of late, for his knowledge and input, for sure.

Wish he really was a tad (lot) closer .... travelling about does not agree with me, (or the body at least), anymore, unfortunately ..... sounds to be a great place to learn.

As for money .... totally agree ..... never discussed it with co-workers, as have seen the resentment, animosity even, it can generate between folk.

That's a beaut. Never operated the loader version, but operated a D31 blade for Phelans. I think they were half a tonne heavier than the D3 but pushed like a lot more machine. The blade had a bit more angle as well, not that that makes a lot of difference doing anything but snow ploughing.
