Let me just slip on an anorak...
Yes, it's an EE type 3, in green would have been a D6xxx number and later on Class 37xxx. :think:

Ahem, anyhow, Is there a story to the D tipper? At a glance I'd say from the first photo it ran down the slope on the left backwards and through the wall. Can't really see how the crawler got in there, no obvious marks in the field.
If a LandRover doesn't leak oil, it's run out.

Hard to see from here if it was a 37 or a class 40? :oops:

Yes the 'D' Series certainly had a happening. :think:

The horns are up on top so I vote for a late Type 3, never seen a Type 4 with the horns there (not even the late ones), and anyway they would have been less likely to be in a yard like that.

Looks like Steve has provided two Weatherill photos, both hi lift versions of the 2H. Not seen one with the banana arms before.

Never noticed banana arms , new to me also.
The Foden it is loading is a very short 6 wheeler.
Not all those who wander are lost.

Possibly the way the spare wheel is carried makes t appear short?

So could the crawler from last week belong the the same operator as the cranes this week?
Are pics 8 and 9 the same site?

Interesting with the cross over from rope to hydraulic working alongside. I did a day or two in 1990 on a site contracting a bridge over the Blackwater in Maldon, Essex. They were still using an NCK rope for the everyday site lifting.
