Nice tipper evolution line up.
Never knew a J4 could carry that much on the roof rack? Seriously though, I would have thought the service truck should have been an Ebro or similar so I wonder if JCB would have supplied it ready built as dealer equipment?
Is the next one down a Muir Hill?
If a LandRover doesn't leak oil, it's run out.

I don't think there's any Ebro vehicle with the 3DII, the van looks like a 60's SAVA, the lorry is more likely a 60's Pegaso, Ebro lorries at the time were similar to Ford and Thames designs. Didn't think there would be tinted windows on Spanish JCB's. Both the lorry and the van were manufactured by ENASA (who owned both brands) and the van might well have been powered by the same engine as the JCB, as SAVA were making BMC based vehicles.

Nice pair of Mercs.
2nd last pic - If he's doing that whole demolition job with an AllDig, it's going to take a while. I'd give him a couple of quid for the AA sign before Mr. Cole gets it.

Yet more Major conversions! Very good advice on the dancing diggers.

I gather, therefore, you are keen on Major conversions.
