Our firm has an old A25,very good condition.Also has the very first Volvo ADT they ever brought,1960 something i think.They do a few shows with it.Will try to get some pics the next time i`m at the yard.6x4 or 6x6,not sure.Looks tiny compared to a A25d.Also have A20/B,A25D,A30D/E,A40D/E.Some early 860`s(i think)fuel tankers,6x4`s.The last A40C`s have just gone.
Have some Cat 725`s & 740`s,but awful compared to Volvos.Have driven all the Volvo`s when i was on the trucks,including A35c`s,the C`s were tanks,but great off road.Dont rate the Cat`s or Komatsu 400.Volvo the best.

He looks a fair bit older now!I think Kelston is in his early 80`s now.Interesting to see the fleet numbers,434,457 & 458.Our latest machines are coming up to 1200 now.Shows how much kit we`ve had/brought.My Hitachi is f/n 958,one of if not the oldest digger on the fleet.

Does`nt look so bright anymore.Nothing that a bit of polish would`nt sort though.Lives undercover at the yard.Seems quite small standing next to it by todays A25`s etc.
