That last photo will have a certain person coming over all sweaty!

Is the rope shovel moving snow in Paris? looks like an Austin A35 in the background. Perhaps winter of 62/63?

Hi David,
The world gets even smaller. I too knew Dennis Hitchins quite well. I bought a 3C Mk 2 from him it was K reg, I think that makes it 1972. I later bought a Cat 951 89A and a Priestman 120 from him.
"No," The 120 pictured wasn't mine as none of mine had a number on the back of the cab.
I had a MF 350 excavator on self drive from Dennis too, I remember it because no one wanted to drive it. :think:
It had it's own strange layout of the controls, I can't remember now which of the two levers controlled the slew, but it slewed left when the lever was moved to the right and vice-versa which was of course opposite anything else we had and very confusing. :? :dizzy:

Great photos as ever
