RED RH300

Post #1 by Dah » Thu Oct 08, 2015 4:06 pm

Hi,

I know that the O&K RH300 and G350 grader were both NSM yellow when working at the Godkin Site. They both spent a short time at Donnington before Godkin so was wondering if this picture was taken there (and they were re-painted before arriving at Godkin)?

Or maybe it is a Photoshop special - the RH300 lettering on the back doesn't look real (and I've never seen any O&K machines with the model number on the back)?!

Dave.

The only red RH300 that I was aware of was the electric version that was put to work in a copper mine in Chile; unless the NSM RH300 was painted into their livery shortly after delivery? Could well be right Dave it could be a photoshop special. :think:

Hi Jeremy,

I think it has been photoshopped to be honest. Given that there were only 3 units (NSM low-cab yellow diesel, Chile high cab red electric and a third that wasn't sold), I'd say this is either coloured-in (looks like the NSM logo on the Wabco skip has been coloured over too) or it is the third machine that went to Bauma (that was red but I can't find the picture now) and back to the O&K factory.

This is the NSM machine brand new - at the factory so it was delivered in NSM livery.

Dave.

Hi Dave - I've seen this before - i think it's a photoshopped version for O & K publicity taken at either Donnington or Godkin
