Re: Hymac 580BT 1969

I just took my last days annual leave on Thursday to go up to do a bit more work on the Hymac; I also took the time to run the Poclain as well to give her an airing too. My endless jobs of work continue with the 580BT I had noticed that she had cracked on the boom in five places, above each of the b...
