Sunk and down

Post #1 by Martyn Henley » Wed Dec 10, 2008 9:29 pm

Hi Guys ..got sent these pics today .. its of a poor old Poclain 60 .. Chris, who took the photos about 3 years ago on the GSE landfill site at Lydd in Kent, thought that the machine was left there to rot .. but when chris returned with another load later that day the machine was being lifted out by a crane to live another day :dizzy:

Clearly the operator wanted to give the machine a good wash :lol:

Thats unusual to lift something in a situation like that with a crane, normally they are winched back out.Any pics of the rescue ?
