Re: Poclain 75 CKB

Whoa fair play to you Jeremy! You've got the bug now, nice looking machine, best of luck and I'm sure you'll do it justice, another piece of machinery saved from the gas axe, I drove a Poclain 90 in the late 80's, nice machine, plenty of power but was a bit jumpy when grading

Re: Thwaites dumper wiring diagram ?

It's not a cut out switch for the drive is it? If you are not in the seat no drive, like excavators. I say that because I have two wires on my seat but no high tech wizardry so just cable tied together and going nowhere

Re: Comparing Holman 4t dumper
