Hard digging there Sod pulling drains through thats no fun. Nice little machine that simple, fixable these new machines with all their electrics and computers are of no use to the homesteader.
Have you far to go? that ground will be hard on your buckets a bit of hard facing on them would help i bet. oh and remember dont go too deep we dont want you popping up in me back garden lol. all the best mate Magnet

Is that an early Cranvel Wombat? it also looks like the Norwegan ATOS towed hoe (this is the one Joe 'JCB' Bamford saw when on a sales trip promoting his half trac conversions, & brought it back as a starting point for his own backhoes) Great it runs again!
