After the dignitaries stop slipping around in this short video a Bray HL23 backhoe loader gets to work 2.09 min and what an ugly beast it is !

In the right conditions that would have some push (for a Major powered tool) with all that weight over the back axle! Thanks for the photos and links guys.

Hi Craig and Pete ,
Thanks for the pic and the link, but it's not an HL23.
Like the 23 it has the Sherman backhoe but it's mounted on a BL30 loader. If you look closely at the loader arms you can see it says Bray Loader 30.
I,ve certainly never seen that combination before.
Pic of HL23 below.

The Chaeside was owned by CIE Coras Iompair Eireann the state transport company .or It may have been a contractor working for them . The slide was scanned backwards .
