The 365 is a fantastic looking machine in my eyes. Love the design. And it also look very massive and impressive.

Id be very suprised if it was Alfred McAlpine undertaking the job in Jamaica, as to the best of my knowledge they withdrew from undertaking contracts outside of the UK, more likely Kier who have an operation in the Caribbean.

Id hazard a guess that Alfred McAlpine sold on items of plant that it no longer required or had enough work to justify retaining in its fleet after completing one or more major jobs, such as the A30 contract in Cornwall.
The export market for used equipment, particularly well maintained/low hours equipment is very healthy particularly, as at the moment manufacturers are quoting long lead in times for kit such as ADTs due to high demand and difficulties in securing components such as steel and in particular off road tyres.

It is a Kier job with McAlpines doing the muck shifting.

Regarding taking pictures at work,we have got all the equipment these days.Mobile phones that take pictures,camcorders and didgycams.All this is a fairly recent thing.When we had all sorts of interesting plant to photograph all those years ago, thats all we had was a camera if we were lucky.All those missed photgraphic possibilities gone forever,frustrating!!
