Dumper | Barn Conversion | Coventry Climax forklift | Desta | Matbro forklift | Poclain 60 excavator | Opico Skidster | Iron Fairy | Jones KL15

A fairly large 4 wheel drive dumper that I recently photographed. I don't know what sort it is.

When is a barn conversion not a barn conversion? 

Coventry climax forklift picture from the 1970's. Given to me by Andy. He used to service them. The first forklift in the gallery

Another one of Andy's pictures. This new Desta forklift is loaded up ready for delivery.

Matbro forklift at a container repair yard in the 1970's. Another of Andy's great  pictures.

Matbro L80 swing lift also from Andy.

This Poclain 60 pictured behind a garage where it seems to be involved in scrapping old cars. It looks in good condition but hasn't been used for a while.

Dan from Australia is making 1 Jones KL15 crane out of 2. He hopes they are the same so that he can get one working.
