Hi Glenn

It looks like the Electric beast goes well.

What is the correct name for the spiky solid steel wheels, on the 'bendy pusher' thing ?

Thanks Stock.

I have found out that the best way to get answers is to ask questions :)

Also many years ago.. about 1976 I used to have dealings with someone who had a large TEREX wheeled loader.

I say large, if a 10 cu yd bucket is large ?
I remember it well as the trucks I supplied him had 20 cu yd bodies which it filled in two bites.
It could also lift 20 tons.
I was impressed !
The reason I mention this is because I wondered if the Terex was still around ?

The quarry was owned by Peter Court, at Avon Dassett North of Banbury, trading as Avonhill Quarries.

Hi Roland ,Yes terex is still around but probably not the same as you remember ,After all the mergers and take overs you would not know who terex is now .Massey fergusson bavckhoes ETC became fermek ,then terex . ASV track loaders of the type that sean dislikes so much, Which had catterpillar tied up in there somewhere ,some how are now wearing the terex brand in australia ..Greeniron ,being an old school terex/euclid owner ,may be able to explain ,the "NEW TEREX".
