Re: 639,s

Gday Rare,do you know how many scrapers Ertech still have and would they mainly be 33,s?.It surprises me the demand for a newer model 39 isnt there considering how much better they are in the sand .It can be a hard slog for 33,s in sand and considering the amount of subdivisions and mineral sand min...

631k

Seen an article on the 631K,dont know how many of the fellow member,s have seen anything on them.

Re: Cat 651E elevators

Imagine that 3 of the big girls joined together.I think that was made by pederson or something like that.Another man with the funny name that starts L made a triple that was powered by electric motors which of course were powered up by a couple of diesel,s.Some very clever men in the earthmoving game
