Muck-Shift Working Weekend

On the 18th and 19th June we attended a ‘Muck-shift working weekend’ at a site near Lutterworth, organised by Paul Badger for the Caterpillar owners LINK Club. We had to re-profile a 4×4 course.  The site was awkward in that the haul routes were short and the turns were tight, as we found out with our tracks trying to come off!

Another big one is this Cat D9g belonging to Terry Barnsley, at the time it was Caterpillar’s biggest production machine.
