Hmmmm, doubt it'll fit in the garage, dont think the neighbours would be happy with it outside, and god only knows how many jerry cans I'd need to fill her up....

This is a bit random, but I've got a book- " Reclamation of Contaminated Land" by Nathanail and Bardos that I bought a copy of when doing a contaminated land module at university and within it theres a short section about demolition and a photo of a demolition job at a former military site showing a Komatsu PC450 belonging to Hawk behind which is a Liebherr-almost certainly a 974- belonging to Morgan with the same logo on the boom.

I've just forwarded the link to Big Al (my brother) He will remember the beast if they did own it as he will most likely have dragged it around on his old Foden...
