The crane is a Harman D or maybe a ED,cant get an idea of size without the seat ........they didnt change the mechanicals at all. from 30s to 60s,.........Surprising the crusher is still there...........they have always been a high demand item,whatever the condition........The old Fowler Movemor is a classic..........there are still a few working .

This treasure is to be found surprisingly not far from home, well my home anyway...... The Rabbit truck and old semi are at Patchewollock, the quarry gear has been where it was last worked in a limestone quarry at Kow Plains and the Morris is parked outside the Murrayville silo. I chose not to get into trouble taking photos of the the remaining WW2 tanks, bren guns and other heavy paraphernalia also at Murrayville. (included some chain drive R-sends). When Scout & I were kids there were acres of WW2 stuff dumped there.

.A few weeks ago we went to our sons place out from Merriwa, mostly going through Kulnara and Wollombi, a sort of narrow ,but picturesque road,
it is a favourite motor bike run. At Wollombi we had previously seen this old AB150 inter, so pulled up this time to take a pic or two.
While ambling around the old girl, a lady drives up in an old Landy. Morning she says, are you looking for our shop, if so it is up the driveway at the house....
Well, no i say, i would like to take some pics of your old truck if thats OK..
You mean Mr Sulley..... thats what we call him......after the man that we bought him from......go ahead she says and drives off.........…

Here is Mr Sulley....................











More to come......................

Billy P,
Just a casual glance at that crane setup with the ram driving the cable to raise the boom load, puts me in mind of some of those early Cranvel cranes.
Keep driving about, like to see these old jiggers in all their past glory.
