D8 on job

Post #1 by nick lamb » Sat Jan 10, 2009 5:43 pm

Got some work for the D8.Two jobs infact :) .I couldn't believe it.The first job is a regular stockyard clear up.I've been here before a few times.I ended up getting abit more work due to the frozen ground conditions.Every little helps......as they say.The lowloader's coming on Mon/Tue to take it to its next job which involves moving a hill and a trout fishing lake so that should keep it busy for a while.I will only work it when the weather is right so if it takes me 4 months to do six weeks work I'm not too bothered.
The lowloader belongs to D.Morgan Plant.If I'm paying the bill I allways use them. :thumbs_up:

For fear of appearing thick is it transported with the blade lifted or is it resting on something i can't make out ? :dizzy:

Hi Steve,this was a local move so no timbers were used.It's moving about 40 miles away this week so the blade will be chocked up properly.Allthough Morgans wouldn't move far without timbers another company who move the D8 for me(only if I'm not paying the bill) is Northover from Liverpool and they will move it anywhere with the blade unchocked and just a chain over the drawbar!.It only gets a mile or two up the road before the blade's crept down.They don't give a F##k! :dizzy:

Hi Nicky, one tidy D8 you have there, like the black on the cab, makes her stand out. If things go to plan will be over in July, will have to drop in to see you. Good luck mate.
