Re: Cat 6020B

Think the guy who designed that only had a 30/60 set square in his pencil case, I do not like the look of that!!!!! The glass to the side of the cab looks like an awful after thought!!!!!!!!!!

I hope that is not the future design of large cat mining excavators!!!!!!!!!!

I keep hearing mutterings about UK coal being 100's millions of pounds in debt, could the same situat...

Re: ATH in administration

That is bad news indeed :( , especially for all the workforce who are now facing an uncertain future in this economic climate!

Re: Komatsu 475

Have not seen any 475's in the UK Ian, the biggest K dozer I've seen is a 375 operated by Blackwells, it was push loading Cat 631G's in the North East!

(EDIT):- Am I correct in thinking there was a 475 in the UK that went to Greece (Cyprus) to work?
