‘A hydraulic excavator on new road work- excavating to the formation level.’
Early hydraulic excavator, possibly a Priestman, can anyone confirm? The machine has Forestry Commission number 28 1023 71 and probably managed by a West Coast Civil Engineering section.
Any information on location and the driver would be very welcome. See PDF for another view.
