Hello Mal
When I worked in Devon,the firm I worked for were Liner agents.Worked on the complete range.We had three cyl Listers in a few of them.We had a fleet of about 50.I think the makers were based in Gateshead near Newcastle.
You should be able to get bits for a PH1.

Thanks all for the responce.
Just wondered if anyone had any more info on liner dumpers.
Im thinking it must be a fairly rare beast. Cant find anything at all on the net.
Mind you did find Liner concrete machines website but no sign of any dumpers
Also a bit stumped as to why the bottom end of PH1 is seized, cant imagine this is common given the size of internals .
Have only got the head and barrel off so will have to dig deeper .
The dumper is in good condition and well worth the effort (i think).

Why not post some pics ,got an old Liner ad with all the range on I'll post it, when i get a chance to scan it in.They made an interesting digger dumper that could dig and dump at same time and load itself.

I can remember working on a 3 ton liner dumper fitted with a LR3 I think.It was a pig to do any engine work on it due to poor access.
I had all the manuals for all types.When we changed to Benford and Wingate I threw them away :x All the machines were handle start,thats why they were got rid of as sites wanted electric start in the 1980's.They were good dumpers,the main faults were the gearbox and cracks on the frames.

Liner, its one of those name that crops up from time to time but I don't really know anything about the company. I have a recollection of seeing a website form them 5 or more years ago and they were making concrete mixers (paddle type I think) and small conveyors. Not sure about dumpers.
I believe they made an telescopic handler for a while to.

But it was a small UK company called Liner, based in Gateshead, which produced the first of what we now recognise as a telehandler, when it launched its 'Giraffe' at the Public Works Exhibition, London in November 1974. That really was the machine, with its four equal-size wheels, four-wheel drive and four-wheel steer, and with a telescopic boom, that set the trend for the type of telehandler which we recognise today. Sadly, the Liner company did not live to see the fruits of its innovation. Its basic idea was good, but the same idea was soon developed by the others in the established RTFL business

Hello IBH
Forgot about the Liner giraffe.It was a very good telle handler of the early 1980.Spent a lot of time on them as well. I can remember welding in new rubbing strips to the boom.Also the mixers were good.

I've got a feeling that I read somewhere that Matbro bought the rights to the Liner Giraffe, but I could be wrong. Does anybody have a photo of a Liner Giraffe?

I will try and find the photos I took of one in 1983.We painted a message on the boom that could be read when fully extended.It raised a few eyebrows on the sites it went to.
This thread has jogged my memory of working on Liner equipment.
