Wow, thats great... any more info anywhere? been strugling to find any documentation on it..

Ah 1778kgs... I was hoping it could be near or under 1500kgs... that way it would go on a trailer behind my truck that can pull 2000kgs.... dont think there is enough that could be removed.... not without a major redesign, which would miss the point I suppose... :lol:

Think i've got a brochure on it ,somewhere :dizzy: bought a great pile of Thwaites stuff for pennies a while back off ebay, funny though the old dumper stuff seems to sell quite well now. Dumper revival ? they must be about the cheapest form of transport.

Fantastic 70's fashions for the man about site, 1980 digger dumper price £6,216.00 ,a lot of brass in 1980. Going by BPI rate ( beer price indicator) a pint was 25p in 1980 around £2.50 now so thats 10 times increase making adjusted price £62,160.00 which would now buy three 3te mini excavators ?
