Re: Front steer dumper Stothert & Pitt

I have a brochure for these but never seen one in the metal , I don't think they were a big seller as 4WD was all conquering by 1980s.

Re: Hymac Excavators

Hymac 580 ?? Cutting first sod for Tyneside Metro System 1980 , a Fairclough machine. Truck in background looks interesting, maybe a Land Rover Series 1 107in in Fairclough colours but this would be over twenty years old at the time ! http://www.classicmachinery.net/forum/images/userpix/618_3M37OUVI...
