Re: ts14b scraper

Yes!! I drew and built every part of it. It was to be a TS-14B. But then I switched to an F model. Now I'm testing the engines for traction. it's been complicated to find something ideal to have strength and speed for it! Once you have solved this I will post a Video here. I'm drawing a TS-32 now. ...

Re: TS14 Single and Twin.

Angus it would probably be UMO plant that supplied the Russian dump trucks as they were the Belaz agents in the UK from what I can gather; Le Tourneau made some very interesting and different construction machines with some great ideas that never really seemed to take off.

Re: TS14 Single and Twin.

Thanks Angus I never realised that a twin bowl Le Tourneau had made it to these shores. :thumbup: Interesting to see that they used a gear and rack to open and close the apron.

Nice one Fred I never realised that Winget were associated with truck mounted Poclain excavators perhaps the unpopularity of the truck mounted machines lead Winget to concentrate more on dumpers?

Re: Classic pictures Update 11/12/2017

Poclain had big range of machines and some seemed huge by the standards then. They were a huge concern with manufacturing plants set up in many different countries, even one in Japan, they made what was the world's largest fully hydraulic excavator when they launched the EC1000 around 1974 think fr...

Re: Classic pictures Update 10/12/2017

What an odd machine in Steve's last photo. Great black and white photos Roger. I assume the double split cabs were for a driver's mate? Don't remember seeing that type of layout. Pete that was the Poclain TU the first hydraulic excavator manufactured by them; it was powered via a power take off fro...
