Re: Poclain 75 CKB

Top man. We ran a GCK120 for quite a few years, eventually getting hold of a scrap machine for spares to keep it going. CK denotes a heavier duty model for quarry use etc. Main difference is use of higher pressure hydraulics than other machines, so be sure to use Multispiral hoses. Pumps and motors ...

Australian manufacturer AT Harman

Found some images of the products of an (unknown to me) Australian maker AT Harman.
Seems they were active from the late 1880s until early 1970s, dealing in, repairing and eventually manufacturing new machines.

Re: Classic pictures Update 22/01/2018

Re: The way we were

Could it be a New Zealand truck? Many Oz companies were labelled 'Pty' Ltd. I'm not aware of any DJ Brown single axle trailer Multidrive units - their system used a double-drive trailer bogie with steering linkage to the tractor unit which allowed the trailer to self-steer, this kept propshaft U/Js ...

Re: Classic pictures Update 04/01/2018

The top picture - I'm tempted to suggest the tractor unit might be an ex WW2 FWD SU COE. It looks to be a 4x4, fuel tank looks right, cab has extra windows each side of rear centre one (which would be a sensible and easy adaptation). I can't tell from low-res pic if doors are flat bottomed - if so I...
