Construction Machinery Air-Con Units

January 24, 2011

We have been searching for a very long time for a suitable air-con unit for retro fitting. We have seen all sorts and they have either been too expensive, bulky or unsuitable in other ways. At long last we have found one – a Red Dot unit as can be seen from the photos. We think you will agree it is compact, lightweight and presentable.

‘Working Day’ at Farnsfield with Our Latest Edition!

January 7, 2011

We went to a ‘working day’ at Farnsfield in aid of the Air Ambulance charity on the 29th and 30th December and took our latest edition to the collection – the newly imported International TD14a and Ransomes Hexatrac plough.

Winter at Walker Plant

January 4, 2011

Winter sets in at Whinleys Farm – just like everywhere else, but work carried on regardless.

Snow at Whinleys Farm

Like much of the UK, Walker Plant experienced record snow fall during December 2010.

The workshops remained open throughout the cold snap.

The above picture demonstrates well how deep the snow was.  Fortunately the snow didn’t spoil the ‘working day’ at Farnsfield – pictures to come later this week!
