Hello all
Julian Carder asked me to sort out his latest machine before its move to a new home.
This is a video record of this machine on Sat 19 th Aug 2017 its first run and move and loading day 22 nd August 2017. Fitted with backfill blade . and aux hoses, to run a type of flail machine. It had a bad battery earth to start with, soon sorted, had to be shorted on starter to get going. Not been run or moved for for eight years. Some of the locals were telling me its been housed in that shed since the mid 1970's. Gave the levers and stop and throttle a spray with WD . seems a bit of wear in boom to dipper pin and the boom control lever is a bit hit and miss sometimes. Not a bad machine for its age though. Love these old Hymacs. Came with two buckets and a ripper, had to drag it out of the undergrowth with a bit of a tree growing through one lol

Number 5 https://youtu.be/2jZpWMN2v68
Machine built 67 69 F reg ???, used in the Porthcawl area all its working live, had not moved for eight years till I wen on it . It was used for drainage jobs and tree removal. It was even tracked to a job on the main road many years ago. Sa to hear that its operator passed away three years ago. He would have been so pleased to see this machine being restored.
Hope you enjoy the videos
Martyn

Martyn great to hear from you again :thumbup: I unloaded this machine for Julian at the other end (see photo comp pic) then promptly loaded it onto a short trailer towed by a Fastrac to Julian's other unit, I too look forward to seeing her restored. :thumbup:
