Re: JCB 3C MKIII /5 picts and questions

I used to run a Bomford Bushwacker which had a hydraulic driven 3ft. rotor flail head. The motor circuit purely used for the head had a reservoir tank of more than 25 gallons capacity just to keep the oil temperature down. Oil I think was Hyspin AWS 28.

Re: 3cx insurance (non commercial use)

Odd.. I only deal with our local office (Stuart at the Alton office), and I can't fault them, regardless of what conundrums I've thrown their way. When I insured my 1938 crawler the call was Make and Model, then Reg number. Ah, no reg - no V5, never has. No problem sir, chassis number? No, plate is ...

Seems a complicated way of not using a shaft and some UJs. Although... I wonder if it was designed to be an electrical controlled ...

I'm curious about the upended dumper sequence... The first two pics appear to be a Ford 4000 - Surely too small for a Goose dumper? Now the recumbent County 100-4, I can't see a hitch mechanism. There isn't a normal drawbar or any lift arms which, if my hazy memory right, is correct for a Goose, but...
