Among the many other machines present at the yard where I acquired my 580BT parts is this lovely Bray loader; you don't see many of these around today. :thumbup:

That is very rare Jeremy, I don't suppose they were huge number in the first place as models moved on so quickly. What engine do you think?

This is similar but different engine?

Pete I am almost certain that it is Leyland powered and I think either the 600 or 680 engine, this one looked a tidy machine. :thumbup:

Pretty sure that's ex British Army maybe BAOR with having a hydraulic winch on front.
They could be driven both ways with swap around controls. Bray 455M
