Re: rare scraper more pics

I know there is still one surviving Twin-six in NZ as well as several scraper bowls that have been converted to towed units used with wheel tractors and there was a complete machine in working condition for sale in Australia a few years back but that's all I know of.

Re: IH2T55 scraper

Hi Malcolm,
Have you seen the remains of the 2T55's/75's in Kaikohe or Kaitia? There is also one on the site of the Clay mine up past Whangarei with a couple of KW-Dart dumptrucks. Have some photos packed away somewhere.
Regards, Ron Nash (dozeron).

Close call!!

1960s shot of my brothers machine when a cutting sidebank caved in on him. He was pulling a ripper, breaking ground prior to tractors & scoops, (boxes) coming in to cut out. He saw it coming and was able to bail out of the dozer, a A-C HD15. No damage, dug it out with a NCK 304 navvy and back in...

1950s

Hi all, Found this shot taken in the 1950s near my home town of Morrinsville, North Island, NZ. This was a job that I was told was done by my dad and the local transporter operator who owned the A?160 and lowloader. This guy used to move my dads machines round the country from job to job. This barge...

Hi all,
This is a shot I took of a Camill dumper in NSW, Australia back in March 2002. It was still in regular use and sitting in a contractors yard after completing a job, enjoy.
Regards, dozeron.

Re: Moving Ã…kerman H9 whith dolly and truck

Hi Martin, Good to see you on the board. That idea of yours reminds me of when my dad got started in earthmoving back in New Zealand just after WW2.

Re: Komatsu F/Shovel in NZ.
