Hi everyone!

I just found you guys while I was checking out where traffic was coming to my site from in my stats and there you were, thanks! I went straight over to the links page in my forums, added this site and then popped over to say hi.

Hi

this may be a daft :?: but canot say I come across a "Spyderhoe" , is it a type of mini digger like a smally or powerfab ?

We sometimes refer to the Ultra compact tracked mini cranes as a spider crane due to how the legs look when extended out. (these are the ones that will pass through a doorway and lift about a ton, bigger versions go up to about 5 ton (great for inside buildings, or on the roof).

Thanks in anticipation
Dave

Dave,

The Syderhoe is very similar to the Menzi Muck machine that I wrote about on my blog recently.

Take a look here .. http://www.contractjournal.com/blogs/di ... excav.html

Thanks Nick

Tere was an article on the Menzi or similar in Earthmovers mag a bit back IIRC. So its abit biger than a Smalley or the Powerfac type m/c then.

Sort of specialist machine that for certain jobs is brilliant but most people dont know about and QS will not pay for ;) as they only see the bill not the time and safety element.

Thanks

Hey thanks for the welcome guys, glad I found you! I see a lot of familiar names from over at HEF, right on.

Ross I will likely be passing through your neighborhood in the near future. I make at least a couple trips a year out to Alberta, love that drive.

I'm going to go start a new thread and post some pictures of my machine :thumbs_up:
