Re: JCB historical literature and archive machine information

Hi Julian.

This is a great idea. I used to have Construction News when I was in my early teams just for the large JCB posters which were included in them. Sadly I got rid of them years ago, so if you could include these that would be good.

Regards.
Neil.

Hi John.

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

Thanks.

Re: Road Rollers Limited

Hi IBH.
From what I remember a lot of their plant was painted green and I think they were taken over by Isis Plant in the late seventies or early eighties.

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. No, I looked forward to opening Construction News on a Thursday morning particularly if I could see there was a shiny A3 sized poster inside advertising a JCB 3...

Re: INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER BTD6 DROTTS.

I worked for Saville Tractors in Stratford-Upon Avon until the late 80's and remember the workshop very well. The chap with the black jacket on was John Kinchin who was the Publicity Manager in those days. I am not sure who the other two gents are. In 1985 we moved out of Harvester House and it was ...
