Re: Smith Rodley 21 the resurrection.

Finally got the old Gardner running the other day!
Next task is to get the digging lock working. And after that, who knows? Hopefully everything else will work just fine! :D

Re: Drag line

Looks like one of the older Class-type draglines made by Bucyrus-Erie. Don´t know what size it might be, but seems smaller than the Class24?
Sure thing an interesting find! :D

Re: Ruston Bucyrus Cable Excavators.

A 10-RBT(license built in Sweden by the firm Tornborg&Lundberg) was shown this summer with the Skimmer attachment. Certainly very fascinating to watch! http://www.classicmachinery.net/forum/images/post_img/104668_1554267527564e3b0a20705.jpg Original URL: http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff65/k...
