do it as well as you can,but learn to do it better
I very nearly bought that exact same model in the late 80's IIRC was a 25 tonner ... went down to Carmarthen to eyeball it ... again IIRC it was one of Malcom Davies's first machines ... nice crane, but at the time an unknown quantity in the UK and spares costs were eye watering ... starter motor - £1000 when a Lucas for a Grove was £200 ... well engineered but the panel work was bean tin thickness and rotten
six in line Mitsu motor ... and were gutless ... in line twin cab up front .. rear seat like a coffin ... once in, there was no way out, with a driver in position :oops: .... bought my 30t Demag instead ... far better choice and funnily enough was on the same tyres Frank .. came from Sweden
just seen the Finn link ... 'tain't worth £20k in the UK, IMHDO
