Very good Craig :thumbup: must have been all posed perhaps for some advertising? Appears odd that he drives off with the truck sideboard down, mind it would not stop a big lump of stone like that from moving, perhaps he was off to the weighbridge first?

All looks very ropey to me ( pun intended ) :D

I was thinking more along the lines of a stone quarry advert; you are correct the kit has sadly seen much better days.

Looking at the great pictures of the early Chaseside Rope Shovel, on page 19 of this post. There is a photo of a restored one on the internet, which says it is a 1948 machine.
They produced an hydraulic loader in 1955 so I understand. So anyone know when Rope Shovel production started and finished, and roughly how many were made.

Had not noticed the question above. Chaseside were making Rope Shovels through the 1930s based on the Fordson model N. The skid would have switched to the E27N about 1946/47. There are pictures to be found of Rope Shovels on the new Fordson Major E1A which was introduced in late 1951. My guess that the Chaseside conversion would not have been available until some time in 1952. At this point Chaseside were behind the game with hydraulic machines. F E Weatherill, a former Chaseside director, had got a machine to market. The early Weatherill 2H had hydraulic lift and a trip bucket. I have no idea of sales of the last Rope Shovels, but my guess would be very low sales once the hydraulic machines were available. Having driven both early Weatherill and Chaseside machines, I would say the latter was better to drive and operate but perhaps not quite as robust.
