Re: Schmeidag loader project on ebay

Hi Dan, A nice little project for someone as you say. :thumbup: A company I worked for in the early 60s had one of these. I did a bit of work on it, (mainly servicing), as it was pretty reliable. I did get to use it once or twice and my main recollection is that if you were trenching full depth, (wh...

Re: my new jcb 3dmk3

Hi Marcus,
Pete is quite right, but in my experience if they are set up right they don't need further adjustment unless there is something wrong.
Anyway its the usual thing ,tighten the nut then back it off about one flat to fit the split-pin.

Re: Identify small dumper

If you slack that off you should be able to remove the shaft and bearing easily. Put the hub back on, (no need to tighten), use a bl...

Re: Liebherr tower crane - pictures added

Hi Bills, Thanks for posting. It would be a shame to see that cut up. :( The Cardiff Plant Group ran a couple of these when I worked for them. They would have been new circa 1968/9. A brilliant bit of kit in their day. :thumbup: I have no room for the crane. :lol: Though I have found space, (for al...

Thanks Craig for posting two brilliant sets of pics. :thumbup: Keep them coming. :!:

Re: Lister ts3 in a winget dumper 1989

Hi, The stop control not only moves the rack to cut off the fuel and stop the engine but also sets the maximum fuel delivery. When turned anti clock.it allows the rack to move to the excess fuel position for cold starting. The page below from the manual for setting this up shows setting G which will...
