Need help to identify my dumper

Post #1 by Paulod1963 » Wed Jun 06, 2018 3:33 pm

Hi there recently purchased a thwaites two ton dumper 4wd. i think it's mid 70's it's hand cranked and has a ph2 engine with a drum clutch. The tipper has a tipping ram so hydraulic. Its my first dumper so not familiar with the different models.

Thanks all Paul :wave:

First post from utter newbie
Can anyone tell me what make the dumper is?
The only makers name on the engine is “Petter” on air filter housing and it has two cylinders the compression lever works both cylinders and I can’t see a radiator so air-cooled
Might be a PA2 ?
I need to put a filter for the hydraulics in so would anybody know where I could source that or even better what size/model number etc?
Here are some pics
Many thanks

Thank you
Amazingly I see there is a picture of the same machine a little earlier in the thread
Any ideas on spares in general and filters in particular?
Regards
Chris

Armed with the knowledge it’s a thwaites alligator I found an earlier thread saying the engine is either a petter AVA 2 or a PH2
Anyone know which?
