Unscientific but Trader tippers are in the majority on old demolition pics with Bedford TKs a distant second .
They were altered to 6x4 tippers/dump trucks with little mechanical change and also to 4x4 dump trucks so I guess they must have been tough.

Fred will know for sure :D

Don't suppose you noticed the 580B in one of the pics. :D



Hi Norman, yes mate that was the main purpose of my visit to that yard, the 580B is also for sale assuming it's not been sold? :thumbup:

Time on my hands has got me sorting out my brochure collection from the loft.
Anyway I was going to hopefully sell these two Fiat FL4 and FL8 track shovel brochures from 1962 but noticed they were sold and distributed by Chaseside so gone on the 'to keep' pile .
Always thought the 'scaffolding' booms of the FL4 looked weedy but I suppose they were a very small machine.

New to me the Chaseside Hopto from 1956 , amazing how modern the boom / dipper looks for the mid 50s when our stuff looked like Meccano !

Craig I could be wrong but perhaps that was made under license from the American company Hopto? :think:

Thinking about my last post that would make sense as Hopto was the brand name used by Warner & Swasey who JCB based their first excavator the JCB 7 on, and of course JCB acquired Chaseside.

Yes Jeremy fairly sure it was a licence agreement hence the hyphen.
