Re: Italian Dumper

Thanks Jorg :claphands: the Fratelli trike dumper is rather unusual can't imagine that three wheelers would be very stable over a rough building site. :think:

Re: Lewis Badger

Hi Sandy and welcome to the site :wave: that is a nice little but rare machine that you have there I have only seen one of these machines in the flesh and that was being used on grave digging duties; I would imagine that the small company who make these would not have a high production capacity henc...

Re: Hymac 580c idler bushings and seals

Hi Dan; I am guessing that it's the outside filter that is stuck? I had the same issue on my 580BT this is caused by damp ingress between the top of the filter bowl and the housing itself causing the two to 'rust' together. I put a good 7 foot scaffold pole on the bar to loosen my filter, I left it ...

Re: Questions regarding a JCB I’ve just aquired

Steve I can't help thinking that somehow you don't have the correct oil level in there so when you are on an incline the pump is starved of oil? I'm no expert on hydraulics or JCB; I seem to recall there is a sight glass on the side of the hydraulic oil tank have you checked this? The only thing tha...

Re: Questions regarding a JCB I’ve just aquired

Hi Steve and welcome :wave: you have your hands full there but still have a great old classic; sounds like your JCB has stood for a while and you may have water in the hydraulic oil as you said it is 'milky' I would change the hydraulic oil and filter, when you say the hydraulics don't function on a...
