You've already confessed that to me you traitor (unless your confessing to seagulling)...... Your the second bastard this week to of fallen into line and i'm not fucking impressed... I'm so irritated that I'm mulling over the purchase of a machine guidance system just to be irritating...

On a H & S note I have just returned from a hospital visiting my best friend who know has 8 broken ribs, 2 fractured vertebra, punctured lung and split kidney. Working on his extension at home fell through the roof after standing on a 10mm piece of ply that was over sailing the roof timbers. You don’t know what day your card is marked!!

What machine is it going on Rory? Or have you got one for each??
Got to alter it to suit what I want, but it will be going on the rubber block machine (Amy) in theory.

Can't say too much but there's things that may happen this year which will drastically change my operating regime. She's been LOLER tested this month and has been tidied up with full 360' lighting ready for the future.

It's the Newer one which is ironically higher hour's but less worn thanks to CBL giving it some serious love before selling it.

I will confess it's a budget engcon and doesn't rotate... but for the required work that doesn't matter, I can swap it over on machines too in theory :)

Ffs! His own extension.😳 What the fuck is wrong with people. Biggest killer in our industry is falls from height.
ANYBODY working on roofs / false / new / old floors at height MUST check and be aware of their surroundings.

He has learnt that the body doesn’t bounce very well. Falls from not very high are very serious!!

Mostly workshop.

We now have a running forklift thanks to Chris, a man who has helped me out many a time. Apsolute gentleman and a legend of a engineer.

TB175/1 has had the pump off to do the ring gear.

And the Little Kolbelco is now in the workshop to have a new trackmotor.

Will bear it in mind mate, tbh it was a whistle stop tour organised by Rhodes Junior which involved a Friday afternoon of vandalism. Adam from X&P is a cracking bloke (I would comfortably say he's one of the most down to earth and humble blokes I've met of his calibre) and left us too it with his machine.... not sure if that was because he was happy enough to walk off or he couldn't bear to look :ROFLMAO: probably the latter.

Nice machine, stable but no way in a million years would I want a ZTS, visibility is nowhere near that of a standard machine. Rototilt was nice and was enjoyable to play with a gripper properly.... There are no videos, haha
