Hi Martyn,
Thanks for the video. :thumbup:
I saw the D7 at work on Russel Seywells Open Day a few months back. "Very Impressive." :bow:
Wonder how the back end would take it if they gave the engine a bit of welly. :)

Hi Martyn, I enjoyed the videos, but can you tell me what was the loading shovel in the background, it is on the second video after he turned the machine, :?: :| .

Russel is in the main a D7 man but has got a good collection of tracked loaders. That one you have seen maybe a 941,Will have a closer look and freeze frame it.
Went there a few years back,I would love the facilities he has to carry out the restorations.
