At one time the L62 and L64 were the largest 4 wheel drive machines manufactured in the country

Good to hear from you John.
Which model of L series had the horizontal double chamber silencer on the left side?
I think I caught a glimpse of an early L series in a Northamptonshire yard last year. There were quite a lot of caravans and scrap about and my wife was not keen for me to go back and look!

The L62 was fitted with a double silencer

Is that a Pingon being used as a crane in the first photo? Most unusual, there is a Hymac 580C in the 5th photo down behind the Leyland Constructor cement mixer on its side, bet that was a fun recovery job not!

I hadn't realised Jethro had been a careless mixer diver.

Hi,
I know it's a bit late, but did anyone notice the hammer on the Hymac 580 in The first pic. in Neversweat's previous post.
It's from before the hydraulic hammer caught on. It is a " BSP, (British Steel Piling)," pneumatic hammer. You can see the 600 cu. ft. compressor required to drive it in the picture too. The air hose can be seen draped over the stonework that's being demolished, it drops into and then back out of the water and up the Hymac boom. It's a long time ago now but if I remember rightly the air hose fittings were 2 or even 2.1/2 in BSP.
The Cardiff Plant Group ran a couple of these in the 1960s and I may well have worked on the one in the pic. which is reminiscent of a job
near Bath in Somerset where I was sent to fix one.

Fred

Is the 6th down a Willem/Mol creation?
