Re: Thwaites 3 ton shot blast and spray video, Drone and time lapse footage.

You've done a good job mate , on the video as well . I bought the kids an Aldi or Lidl GoPro each for Christmas , so we are just starting to get into all this video stuff . We don't have a Mac , so it'll be something else that I need to look into . Certainly agree that with a bit of effort the video...

Re: Searching for JCB Parts Supplier

I also had a look and I see Green Plant Machinery on ebay as well . From a lot of the stuff I have been sent by various suppliers there seems to be one main manufacturer of these aftermarket pins and bushes . I think you will get the same bits no matter where you shop . Ok , there might be some crap...

Yeah , that sounds good .
That does look like a good job .
Well done on the drone footage .

Just as an aside , what sort of money is the dumper .

Nice one mate , had a good watch of that .
I'll need to get one of these blasters , that's brilliant .

Are you not worried that the shot or sand will get into the seals and bearings , or do you try and avoid those areas ?

I did this job on my own without any help , although the wife brought me a couple of cups of ...

Re: JCB 3CX Grey Cab, Transmission Oil replacement procedure

Some of these transmissions oil levels are checked whilst the engine is idling or on immediately on stopping. Can someone clarify for the OP?
