Nice pictures Michael, thank you. :bow:
The orange one is a 120 Mk.II or possibly a Mk.IIA. Either way it would be fitted with either a Ford 365 or a Perkins 6-354 engine.
The Mk.IIs were fitted with Hamworthy pumps and valve blocks but the later Mk.IIA was fitted with Commercial pumps and valves like the 120 Mk. III in the second pic.
The MK.IIA was in fact a MK.III in MK.II clothing. I ran nine Priestmans including both those models and its good to see there are still some out there. :thumbup:

Wow that's one of the rarer two boom hoist ram models I forget the actual model number Fred can put us right on that one; any idea what engine it has in it Clive? Its a nice looking piece of kit for its age needs preserving if you ask me!

Great stuff Clive, where is that located, wouldn't mind paying a visit to see it myself to be honest!

Looks like a 2-18 from the Sanderson ownership period.

Hi,
That certainly is a 2-18 circa late 80s, must be a rare survivor now.
Couple of pics of mine below, and a late Mk.2 108. It is in original colours but just re-sprayed.

The machine has been bought to be used as a yard machine and is located in Crowborough, Sussex. Runs sweet as a nut and doesn't drive too badly either. Undercart is good but it's bloody wide! I reckon it's about 11 feet, the Dutch car driver who took his mirror off hitting the track will vouch for that!

What's Dutch for "oh shit my mirrors just gone" :lol: :lol: Cracking piece of kit Clive and it would make a great preservation candidate. :thumbup:

I know, but I don't think it's a good idea to write it down here. :lol:
