D7 and scraper

Post #1 by bigkit » Sun Jul 10, 2011 10:51 pm

I just found these pictures of the job last March leveling the village cricket ground. They tried to do it themselves but got into a bit of bother and needed a few extra horsepower! :lol:

LOL! How did they try? With spades?

Nice machinery! Thanks for sharing!


(The problem with uploading many at once is the size of the files! They are over 3MB each! Try to reduce the file-size and it will work.)

Blow me Clive you start your Pilots young???, I have always loved D7's the 48A's were the bangers that I had plenty of time logged in with, might I ask when your D7 is parked on say a hard patch is the bonnet pointing down or up at the front??? its just my daft mind, as I like to see them with their Head up looking the part, the E/beam often used to need a bit of fettling to keep them in the right stance, rad up high it gives you more to look at as you go forward, bonnet that is, great bit of Iron

Clive, I need a new pair of gum boots and I now know the ones I want, the ones with the red bit around the bottom, those Wellies on your youngest pilot are the best I have ever seen? I always avoid Anorak's as you stick out to much, but I often find myself counting little round bumps, its the way I am??.
