Love em ,there was a 275 and a 475 working outside my office couple of years ago and i only got a couple of pics of the 275 :( . Sadly replaced by Doosans. There is still a small one working here in a skip yard , in good nick for its age.

Here is one of John Laings Michigan 275's (I think?) having a big lump of concrete shoved in to the bucket by my Dad in the JCB 3C during construction of the M27 motorway around 73-74

This tidy little Michigan ( 35a ?? ) rear steer loader still works hard near me, must be getting on for 40 years old now and looks like original paint .

Too large for a 35. I think they had a single front loader arm and narrow cab
My guess it is an 85A
