Re: The way we were

Thanks Fred, Multidrive. I couldn't think of that earlier.
The sign writing is in english and rhd, but a non UK reg plate, so could be a local build or adaption.

Re: The way we were

Why would a TK have a Leyland engine? :dizzy:
Yes, I'm sure you'e right. It was AWD that had the TM 4x4 with the 4x4 driven/steered trailer, and later a Leyland T45 4x2 with the 4x4 trailer.

Re: The way we were

From memory, Bedford were involved at some point with an articulated TM with a driven rear bogie. Perhaps the front half of this is an early version? As far as the second trailer is concerned, probably only powered up when loaded and a simple control method would be to have it driven through an auto...

Re: Classic pictures Update 30/12/2017

Thanks for the graphics. If you only knew how long I spent trying to describe that so it made sense!!! Looking at the Berliet with the lowloader and 360, is this one of those situations where he drives along the trailer, takes most of the weight off the drive axle, and the whole lot goes skating dow...

Re: Classic pictures Update 28/12/2017

Hi Fred I looked at that but the chain looks as though it runs over the axle of the middle set of wheels which would turn them in the opposite rotation assuming its 6 wheel drive unless the top run of the chain drives the middle set some how. Can't get me head round it. :? :? Norm Hi Norman, I didn...

Re: Classic pictures Update 29/12/2017

Wow! Three years ago, almost to the day I asked about a particular type of loader which turned out to be a Bray HS4000. Lo and behould, second pic down I do believe is just such a machine, so somewhere one survives. Thanks for posting.

Re: Classic pictures Update 21/12/2017

3rd pic down, is that a Massey 203 or an early 50? Any idea what's on the front of the lowloader? Do I see a J4 pickup?

Re: Classic pictures Update 07/12/2017

http://www.classicmachinery.net/forum/images/userpix/14343_28X3ED53LL681512774534.jpg I know I've posted this pic before, but the scary bit is that I was following a loader that looked very much like the one above. If those pics were taken in winter '85/6 somewhere near Nettlebed I'm going to go an...
