Cast Tractor | Case 648 digger | Johnson dumper | Robinson Rouse digger | Dumptruck | Foden | Crane | Priestman Wolf | Dumper

Neill's small tractor called a Cast which nobody seems to have heard of.  Built in Italy.

Here is a Case 648 digger sent in by Mike. He says, "They also did a 644 and a 4 series. An improved 648 is still produced by Ingersoll (US). 

Johnson 4 wheel drive dumper owned by Gareth. It has hydraulic tip and what looks like a Petter PH2 engine.

Gareth's dumper is going to need a lot of work to get it working again.

Robinson Rouse digger sent in by Shane. If you know anything about this type of machine please get in touch.

Robinson Rouse digger

The Robinson Rouse excavator has a Briggs & Stratton engine and is very similar in design to the Mantis or Benford ME130. 

These two dump trucks were parked beside the Premier Inn at Boreham in Essex in November 2007. This one is articulated and is possibly a Volvo.

 This dump truck is of rigid design. It's a Foden - thanks to John for identifying it.

Thanks to Duncan for emailing these crane pictures.

The Priestman Wolf would make a fine restoration project.

Does anyone know what sort of dumper this is? Tom is trying to identify it. David Brown or Bonser?
