This arrived. He is going to chop up some popular trees and load them into the dumper . When he said he had a digger I had visions of a MF 50B on its last legs .

Weren't our forefathers great fellas, no power tools and that is about 5ins through.View attachment 92805
We’ve a cast iron 750mm water main through our farm and it was laid in the 1880s,as we’re the lowest point in the line the pipes are thicker here,2.5” thick and each pipe is 15’ long,they weigh in excess of 4t each which in itself moving them was some feat 🏆never mind when they drop off the edge of our hill they drilled the collars and bolted them in situ,feck you’d struggle nowadays never mind 140 years ago.

Fine old girl genny there. Would it be possible to fit a pto ànd freewheel clutch to where the starting handle is? Might make things easier to use a tractor to start it than yourself. But it mustnt of been too hard to start since your still wearing your cap!!!!
