Dont know about the largest scraper fleet in Australia.I think you will find Piacentini and son with 80 plus are the largest fleet.They got rid of alot of their old 57B,s but have alot.of 57E,s and a few G,s now.They also have 11 639,s not bad considering there were only 39 ever made.

The good old iron versus the new stuff.

Came across an interesting one on instagram.Some one posted a pic of a old 651b and said they were more a fan of the new than the old but appreciated the amount of work done by the old. All other posts then put their views forward for and against.The one thing that cant be argued and all you have to...

Re: 639,s

Gday Rare,do you know how many scrapers Ertech still have and would they mainly be 33,s?.It surprises me the demand for a newer model 39 isnt there considering how much better they are in the sand .It can be a hard slog for 33,s in sand and considering the amount of subdivisions and mineral sand min...
