Re: Warsop Road Breaker

Mine was in the box with tool kit. I gave it to a chap who shows 1950 road gang. Will see if I can find any information on it or pictures

Re: Machine Identification Help

From my limited experience the year would be between 1985 and early 90's. We would call it a 3cx. It looks as though it's had a 10 gallon make over..
Here they are a sort after classic

Re: Idler roller - how much tolerance / damage is allowed?

I've just done the undercarriage on my 1.5 mini. My rollers were all knackered, 6 in total. My rollers were 52 plus vat each. Your doing the right thing soaking them. Just keep your eyes on them to make sure they keep rolling. Mine were square.

Re: The big 70.

Well done. I'm not in that category. Born 1969. I think I was one of the last generations of normal things as we know it.

Re: Boom & Bust

How the he'll would that happen. It's got the ditching bucket on, so not hard digging. Also I would think there's less pressure on that joint. There's more pressure on the end of the dipper.
Will have to have a look at my Kubota

Re: Classic pictures Update 19/03/2017

I used to drive a Renault like that but blue. Also drove a few on muck. Good trucks.
