Just over my back fence BillyP .... Well just a short walk away
My ol man had to take his LNT8000 tipper up there years ago ..... With the big 22-24" steering wheel and no power steering he said it had him knackered by the top .... And he wasn't sure if his arms were good enough to come back down.
Have heard of an old Austin Western 410 crane going up and back down there ..... Apparently it had its own smoke screen by the top .... And they went through about 20 litres of oil coming back down ....
You might Laugh at me because I'm different, I laugh at you because you're all the same
