OT: Some scraper hoarding

No, CTS. If I knew a good chiropractor maybe; could you image trying to look behind you and all the neck straining? Top seat 4U, the hot rod of my 2s.
I’m not about to make a side seat version for scraping dirt! JM

Well, having some scrapers is good, but what really matters is quality footage of them in action, complete with pushers. I'm seeing a 5T pulling the scraper with a rear-mounted BeeGee which means the operator can't just rely on pulling the main clutch; he's going to have a cat's reaction time to get the bowl up before the 5T chokes, and a 7U pushing. Should provide hours of fun.

Cheers,
Neil

No 5T here, sorry! For the "old" stuff, I keep the U series. Don't forget about the C, D and E series I keep here. I got a good chuckle once, when someone asked if my D4D SA needed to push loaded; nah, if you need a pull start just say so...that D has too much power, it could load 2 scrapers by itself. Russell Turner keeps egging me on to build a tandem 40 for it btw; I might just do it to appease him.
I want to set up on of the 8U's that I have, just because they have the power, weight and visibility ideal for me; not to mention boosted steering! JM
