So one of the first few people to go on it after about 20 seconds decided to lower the boom and dipper.... that was the end of that lol..

These companies that make these fantastical claims without doing a bit of reseach pee me off no end. National companies make spurious statements. Alfred McAlpine were one such company, trying to tell the world that they built Dorney rowing lake for one ..... .anyway heres Rory's sub,all be it a model ...
Maybe we should find a real one .....

Hitachi UA-03 Submersible Excavator custom - Real machine ...
