Re: Caterpillar Dozers and Scrapers

Shame we can’t pick this thread up in its entirety and copy it to P**** Talk. Is Neil Dillon still with you, Carl?

Re: the 'demise' of common sense

No bitch fight, respectful exchange of views. I realised Druid hadn't posted out of malice, end of. Don't read into it something that wasn't there.

Re: explosion at harford attachments

It's always a bit risky judging a situation from the highlights in the press. It didn't say it was entirely the workers fault, nor entirely the employers fault, it did say there was an inconsistent...

Not quite sure where you're coming from with this, Gra? What has two fatalities got to do with the nanny state?

Re: Hydrostatic drives in hot weather

Hydraulic oil starts to degrade over 125-130 C if you hold it at that temperature any length of time. If it's been cooked you'll smell it in the tank and see it become darker.. Biggest problem is...

Been on a 963 this week, no different to normal. Is your cooler clean?

Re: JCB's current Stable - 1.5-10t

You can put double lock, triple lock, as many locks as you want on a quick hitch. It's only as safe as the jockey. If a bucket falls off, big deal, it's only dangerous if there's someone stood where...

Re: JCB's current Stable - 1.5-10t

Missed that bit, probably haven't read right through the thread. My mount didn't have an option to reposition the link, and I haven't seen it. Sounds like the old Hymacs and Priestmans, they had two...

Re: JCB's current Stable - 1.5-10t

As I said, I had a bit of time on a 100C over the last week or two, bread and butter version with a normal blade. My impressions, overall quite small for the weight, lower centre of gravity than a...

Re: JCB's current Stable - 1.5-10t

I've been on a year-old 100c this week, so it'll be interesting to see how your opinion matches up to mine. Your thread Rory, so you go first.

Re: clank feck!!!!!!

Mmm, deeper than stick? Depends on the rod. 6010, 6011, 7010, all manage to find the root and a good bit bit more. If you're penetrating the root or into the corner, how deep do you need to go.

Re: Welder Question, Any Welders Out there

I haven't seen one those for a lo-o-ong time. Last one I used had a Ford industrial engine. 600 amp. You could use any rod to gouge with at 400, but the holder soon warmed up.

Re: Welder Question, Any Welders Out there

It won't quite run a 4.00 7018, but Zodians and ESAB 46.00's run nicely.

At work I use a 350-amp Miller on big stuff, not my first choice of machine, personally I rate the big Thermal Arcs. We've...

Re: Gear pump v piston pump

There aren't many machines where you get a choice, it's what the manufacturer uses. Where do you think the particles from a worn out gear pump are going? Piston pumps definitely have better...

Re: Welder Question, Any Welders Out there

I've had a 140 amp Parweld running off 16 amp in my garage for a good few years now. No arc force or fancy options, but it does the job and keeps doing it. I have run 4 mm electrodes on it for short...

If you paid more tax as self employed than a PAYE employee you should have got a better accountant.

Re: JCB X series ??

I don't cross paths with JCB tackle much these days, at least not above 10 tonnes, but last year I spent a bit of time on a 100Z and I rated it. Very compact for a 10-tonner, stable and fast, and...

As long as it's easy to upload photos, all's going to be good.

How about "Plant and Pipepushing UK"?

Re: JCB X series ??

Wise words, Eddie. We seem to have gone from a machinery forum to argueing about who's got the biggest pair. If someone goes for a particular make I'm interested why. If I bought a machine and all I...
