Re: Some sheduled maintenance

This old D8 is working 14 hour days at the moment.
Been out since after Christmas.
Must be time for a rest soon.
The D8R has been stripping topsoil and overburden .
It's a great machine,but not as good as the older ones in soft going.

Getting the bad muck out first and spreading over the tip to let it dry out.

Re: Some sheduled maintenance

Bit of servicing and replacing clean up filters from the hyd pump problem.
Bought one of those vacume hold grease ends.Really handy for the eq bar fittings.
Other D8 rained off now.
Could be a while.
It rained hard just after I took this pic of the 68A
