I'm sure the last picture is the militant owned by Charlie from Clitheroe. ( he bought it a few years ago from David Crouch)

 

Thanks, I had been wondering who owned it.

'Ere we go again............. it can sit in the woods for twenty years plus, looking at the trees, and be left there to rot away to nothing if undiscovered. All of a sudden someone wants to buy it and it "Wont be cheap". :???

The comment.........."A sad end of a lovely truck" just about sums it up. Why do people have to be so bloody minded when selling something as desirable as that. It's worth realistically about five hundred quid, bearing in mind the time it would take to get it out of the woods.

He should be grateful that someone wants to take it away and use the parts to keep others alive. What is the point of being so greedy. Maybe that is the reason it's still sitting there. No doubt what's left of it will still be sitting there in another twenty years time.

 

May it rest in peace as a monument to the greed of a small minded seller. :cry:

The local councill have the powers to enter private land to remove vehicles they deem to be a hazard or polutant.maybe a call from the local office asking him if he has a waiste disposal licence may prompt him to shift it.Oh dear no licence ,would you like us to remove it for you Sir save prosecution.Its remarkable what a clip board and a white coat gets away with.Mind you its not the rarest truck in town is it.

He cant be that clever otherwise it would be in China by now.

Forgot to take a picture, but one was (Mk1 / Mk2) on the sawbench at Pickering. After the demo, It lifted the wooden Rack saw, a cast iron saw bench, and the Forson E27N Petrol Paraffin Major, that had been spinning up the Racksaw, with the Hydraulic loader, and stowed the whole lot neatly on the back platform, ready for the nexst outing.
