Re: Hymac 580BT 1969

Well I did make the trip up there last Thursday; I have been avoiding big jobs on my machines in case I can't get seals and bits 'n' bobs etc. although to be fair I ought to be able to get what I need.

Re: Andrews Beaulah's Open Day

I went up to Andrew's farm last Thursday to do some work on my excavators there; Andrew wanted to recreate the twin Vickers Vigor with scraper box setup and for me to film it so here it is in better weather conditions.
