Re: George Fowell

Nice one David :thumbup: good luck with it; can't help you with the dating of it perhaps Fred can? The steering wheel looks like it's probably rotted away? Let us know how you get on with it. :thumbup:

Re: Old Excavators at work.

It's rope excavator nirvana Jeremy :thumbup: in a stunning location, well worth combining with a break in the Lakes. Plus loads of other stuff and on non working days you're just allowed to roam freely which is a rarity these days. Got to wonder how much will ever get restored though as there is so...

Re: Poclain 75 CKB

Jeremy Hook was Case-Poclain's head office, main workshop, stores and distribution centre for the UK, though there were depots at Halesowen, Leeds, Bolton(?) and Glasgow that I remember.

Re: Poclain 75 CKB

Jeremy I can't be much help with your restoration I'm afraid, I worked at Hook for two years in the transport department running the low loader fleet, but it's lovely to see one being rescued. Mick Mick no problem I had just wondered if you had worked on them as I know that Poclain had one of their...

Re: Poclain 75 CKB

Jeremy Thanks for this, it's brought back a lot of happy memories of Hook in the early 1980's! Hi Mick did you used to work for Poclain down there? I am finally starting to make good headway with this project, there are still a few jobs that I want to get done before going back to work on the Hymac...

Re: Poclain 75 CKB

I managed to get up to the machines on Thursday and today; I ran the Hymac up and moved it about a bit then decided to tackle the next jobs on the Poclain.
