Thanks for your reply and more info on your Flemming. Just love your Farrari 933 Transporter. That is a nice little go about anywhere beast.
The Lifton has a Briggs and Stratton Vanguard 13 HP gas motor. Electric start with rope recoil backup. (have to install a new spring on the recoil starter-more rust..)
How do you operate your jacks/stabilizers? I see your Flemming has two hydraulic control levers. So you move the Flemming around with the stick and bucket?
With the amount of 'rust' on my Lifton, hard to look at her as 'advanced', but then you're pointing out some things that explain that.
I now live in Virginia, US. Like seeing the buildings and farm equipment in your background of your photos. Grew up on a farm myself out in South Dakota. We raised wheat, barley oats, corn, soybeans, and ran two herds of cattle and sheep.
