Default Reintroduction

Hi I haven't been on here for some time so guess its only fair to post here first, at least for current forum users who don't know me.

I run various diggers and a grab lorry in Gloucestershire. I have bought and sold a bit since I was last posting and the current line up includes a 2t Takeuchi, 10t rubber duck, 1.5t dumper, 8w grab and a 40 HP Kubota tractor which is proving to be very versatile. Also various small plant to go along side.

I am doing more subbing with the lorry now I've gone up a few sizes. I have always prided myself on being adaptable and like variation in the daily routine so take on building and groundwork too.

On a sad note Trax is much lamented by myself and I know by all of you.

Hope you will forgive my absence.

Glad you are back. The more the merrier. Especially as we seem to be a bit short on people posting recently.

Mintsauce - that takes me back the the good old days of MBUK before Doddy turned it into a kids magazine. Do a bit of riding do you?
Anyway, welcome back!

I was MTB crazy for years but kids and a very small business got in the way. I'll get back on 2 wheels again one day but a fair bit slower would be a fair guess.

I guess I've got a wide variety of work covered. As the recession dictated I couldn't afford to turn much down. Things have improved though.
