November 11, 2010

We thought we would share our latest equipment to be exported to Sweden.

Volvo 641The Volvo 641 is a very old, but in wonderful condition, 4 wheel drive loading shovel based on a Swedish agricultural tractor and has gone back to a good home in Sweden after spending about 35yrs in this country!

We also sold another A25c to the same customer.

The hook loader has already been dispatched to Sweden to a dealer who has good demand for these machines. The hook loader’s first stop in Sweden will be the paint shop!

The International TD14a Has Arrived!

September 29, 2010

Above is a International TD14a arriving from Aurora, Oregon, USA.  (mentioned a few weeks ago on our blog)  The tractor was purchased on 13th July, was delivered to the port of Tacoma on 4th August and sailed on 11th August.  The ship delivered cargo to Bremerhaven and Antwerp before dropping off at Southampton with the TD14a on 19th September.

Here it is being unloaded at 7.30 in the evening of 22nd September in our yard.  The tractor was in much better condition than expected, photographs only showed us the cosmetic condition, but we were very happy to receive a machine in ‘nearly-new’ mechanical condition – a first for us!

The above pictures were taken the next day after we had washed all the dust and salt stains off.  Hopefully the tractor will be seen at ploughing matches just after Christmas.

We are indebted to Paul Singer Jnr. Aurora, for his honest description and the care and attention to packing spare parts, muffler and various manuals.  Paul and his family owned this tractor from nearly new.  Upon acquisition, from his father, he decided to re-track it and make it fit for work.  Subsequently he decided to buy a 4 wheel-drive tractor and never used the TD14a for farming again.  When he retired he decided to undertake a full restoration and the tractor was seen at many farm shows in the surrounding area.  In November 2004 it was featured on the front cover of Red Power Magazine.

Workshop in Action: Caterpillar 980G Repair

August 25, 2010

This week we are attending to some faults on a Caterpillar 980G loading shovel.  The hitch bearings are badly worn and we have to ‘line-bore’ the trunion plates to accept our manufactured weld-in bushes.  When this is finished the replaceable bushes and bearings can be fitted.  All-in-all a time-consuming and expensive repair, this could have been avoided with a more diligent maintainance regime.
