Just seen yer other post.
8 x 10 RBs is just a tad on the greedy side
I'm now more than green.

I also know for a couple of 22RBs, one I know for sure has never done a day's in its life.
Local plant guy bought two - new, a long time ago and to the best of my knowledge the one has sat in dry store ever since. I'll find out.

Don't suppose you've got a Priestman Panther tucked away any where to comlete my envy have you (the 10's replacement).

Cheers,
Graham

Paul.
Is the first one a Priestman Paul? Nice old cranes they were.

The 22 RB'd find a home with the collector - Faceshovel on the intro.s page. He's got a whole squadron of 22s

Oops! just realised we're on his thread

NCKs're everywhere. Was a time you couldn't throw a stick without hitting one!!

Four legged ones or bundles of beer tokens Gra?
If only !!
Mine's into gardens/gardening!

Spent the last two years, (in between getting treatment for my Gaucher's disease/going to UHW Cardiff & Royal Free in Hampstead, London), building this for her from a dirt bank.
There's 370 screws in each of those trellis fence panels and 17 panels!!

What you can't see is the double skin 18" retaining wall and all the 160/225mm land drains/clean 40mm/etc., buried under/behind it all!

Never laid a 9" hollow in me life before, 1200 later and I've got the hang of it!! Now all gotta do is get the hang of 100 ish square metres of stone facing

We don't have a drainage problem any more though - used to run down the bank!
The other side of the fence is mine
Hence the need for a bigger fence.

About the only couple I've got, before I got started on 'Pam's Garden' project.
Should say also that there's been a hell of a lot of 'bank digging'/drainage laying/other landscaping going on, simultaneously too, in case any one thinks I've been slacking/dragging my feet/takin' my sweet time, on the job!! :

Also forgot to say that the line's are weird due to the fact that I'm having to follow the line of a previous low retainer that collapsed apparently, under the weight of water build up (no drainage) before we owned the place - hence the lumps of footing everywhere, which are now replace with some serious ones, with a 'proper' retainer atop of 'em!!

Paul,
If you look closely in the 3rd pic of the 22, the driver's still asleep in the cab with his feet up on the 'dash'/front screen!!!!
