Re: dresser 970c

Hi John.

Good to hear from someone with first hand experience of this monster. Do you have any photos of it you could post?

Re: Ih 3434 hydraulic filters problem

Hi George. I remember these filters from my days in Saville Tractors parts in the 1980's. A local company in Stratford-Upon-Avon, McVeigh Construction had several of these machines at that time and there may be someone still there who might be able to help you. Their phone number is 01789 205803. Go...

Re: Plant and machinery publicity leafletts

I was not the typical 10 year old kid in 1970 who looked forward to a copy of the Beano or Dandy dropping through the letter box each week.

I worked for Saville Tractors in Stratford-Upon Avon until the late 80's and remember the workshop very well.
