Hi Dan,
A nice little project for someone as you say. :thumbup:
A company I worked for in the early 60s had one of these. I did a bit of work on it, (mainly servicing), as it was pretty reliable.
I did get to use it once or twice and my main recollection is that if you were trenching full depth, (which from memory was not much more than a meter), there was not enough reach to tip all the muck on one side of the trench.
I had to make a ramp to tip into a standard SWB TK 7 ton tipper with the loader bucket too.
Fred
