Andrew Beaulah’s vintage working day is a fascinating place for people who are Mad About Earthmovers.
Priestman Cub, Tiger and Lion cable-operated excavators are all seen at work, as well as an early Beaver Hydraulic excavator. Other hydraulic machines being operated include a Ruston-Bucyrus 220RH and one of the innovative JCB 110 tracked loaders.
A range of other machinery including two Fowler Challenger tractors, a Vickers Vigar bulldozer based on tank technology and the remarkable Caterpillar Sugar Baby tractor. Close-up filming allows the sights and sounds of all these big machines to be enjoyed in full. Bonus features offer heavy earth moving machinery levelling a field and filling a ditch, excavators digging a wildlife pond and more examples of Andrew’s big machines, including a heavy-lift crane built for export markets and an American device brought over during the war for recovering crashed aircraft and other military equipment.
