Thats an interesting machine! seems to take a load pretty fast but I`m curious what capacity it picks up. Noticed some kind of ripping attachment on the underside of the blade come loading point of the machine. Admittedly, its a first for me. Never seen one. Wonder if it keeps the mechanics busy? :?:

That is an interesting machine, never seen one before.
I can understand why it would be very specialised....don't see a huge advantage over a big tracked loader with a 4in1 bucket, except maybe 'box' capacity. The 4 in 1 loader would be a lot more flexible though.
Looks like the ripper is designed to work on the return run.
Thanks for posting, Graham :thumbs_up:
