Back again lol

Post #1 by Hammer man » Mon Feb 25, 2013 10:55 pm

Hi everybody :) Been a while i know :oops: Thought i`d post an update & try to catch up.Still with Sparkes.Not been on my ZX350 full time since the end of march last year.The machine has been in a quarry helping to shift 3million tons of scalps.I have been with it on & off,also driving a Hitachi ZX470 & Volvo EC460BL,loading our Volvo A30D`s & E`s,& A40E`s & F`s.I could load them in 2 more passes with the 350 & nearly as quick as i could with the 45t machines.My once loved 350 has no paint left on the rear end :cry: .Will post some pics when i can.Am currently working in Somerset with a Volvo EC290CL with a crusher & screen,screening dug out soil/clay ready for lime stabilsaztion(?)
We now have as a company some new EC300DL`s,a new EC700CL which replaced our old Hitachi ZX650.2 new Komatsu PC350`s,some tidy 2nd had A30E`s from Poland,a Cat D6T pat.

Back (again) :lol: Those of you that are on face book or Nicks blog will know a few things,but here goes.Not really hammering anymore.Spending most of my time crushing.Spent nearly 6 mths crushing in somerset with a new Metso LT1213 impactor & Finlay screen making type 1,feeding it with our 2010 Hitachi ZX350,theN with the Volvo EC290CL again.Had a few weeks in Shropshire crushing with a ZX 470 Hitachi,then a few weeks a few miles from my house crushing with a brand new hired in Hyundai 235 zero swing(ok but would like to try a full size version)then at Weston super mare crushing with the EC290CL then a Volvo EC360CL(nearly made me change my mind over a Hitachi ZX350 :o )then back to Somerset crushing,a stint on our JCB 330 hammering(yes,THAT JCB,if you know my posts on here)10255 hrs now,the less said about that machine the better :roll: ,and now after so long away from it,back on "my" 2007 ZX350,with just over 10000 hrs on it,and still a damn fine machine(apart from the rear end :o :roll: )crushing for a fair few months near my home in Bristol.Had some time on 1 of our year old Volvo EC480DL`s,which was quite nice.
As a company,we now have a new Hitachi ZX290,2 ZX470``s ariving anytime now,a new ZX210 just arrived,with a new ZX670 on its way.2 low houred A40F`s just added.And i think our 2007 ZX870 is going,replaced by the new ZX670.A new Finlay jaw crusher,a Finlay screen & a new Hitachi 310 loading shovel.Not been out of work with them since the recesion.Will add some pics to this thread in a bit.
Will try to get on here a bit more,but had some issues with posts/locations coming up in google searches hence why i stopped coming on here.Feel free to find me on face book.Neil Porter :)

are you sure thats possible for a "very late" 2013 ,perhaps an early one ,as there are only 8700 odd hours in a year :think:
every village has one , is yours missing you
