I also noticed amongst the JCB's a very clean 3D mk3 does anyone have any more pictures of that one. Is Martyn st...

Glad you could make it Jeremy and good to see you again!

Looking for an old Drott or similar

Happy New Year Gents!

I'm looking for an old crawler loader to rescue for using in an old quarry, anybody know for one that would fit the bill?

Thanks

There's a bearing on the front end of the box which wears and then allows the main shaft to lift giving the problems with 1st and 2nd but ok into 3rd, took the box out and had to rebuild the casing as the bearing had worn away and wo...
