Bristol Taurus mark II tractor tracked loading shovel
Here is a wonderful opportunity to purchase an amazing Bristol tracked loading shovel. Has been stored for a number of years but is up and running. Although a little tlc would not go amiss. Unfortunately bad health is forcing me to sell this
Perfect for export, pulling boats out, ideal for tree work due to its size and maneuverability. But equally at home digging road, clearing sites, etc. It would also be something extremely unusual on the rally field. Has a very high lift so will tip straight into the back of a large bulk carrying lorry.
Weighing at least 4 tons.
Sizes 5ft wide x 13ft 6" long x 5ft 3" high
Extremely well built. All the levers and everything move but the whole thing feels like it needs working as its a bit stiff. All the running gear appears to have very little wear which is a great bonus (see photos)
Being on tracks it has a low ground pressure so won't leave ruts everywhere like a wheeled digger. Perfect for crawling over woodland floor or up sticky slopes
It is running in all photos
I purchased it for the purpose of woodland use, grubbing stumps etc which it would do with ease
It has a Perkins AD3152 engine as fitted to Fergie tractors and other industrial applications so engine parts no problem.
I have changed the oil in the engine and gone round with a can of WD40 and changed some of the hoses but that's about it. So is perfect for restoration or to use.
It will need a repair to the radiator top outlet. Some of the bottom load rollers to the tracks need freeing up. And some of the pins to the bucket need looking at. There appears to be an oil leak from one of the hydraulic hoses underneath but not sure (if I have time I'll have a look at it). Also the engine has a tapping noise to the top end which should be ok but not sure. The battery/starter motor is a bit lazy so could do with a new one but I can get it started easily to load it. The engine does run very cleanly with no excessive smoke.
Please remember this is a very heavy item and won't fit on your Ifor plant trailer but I know a local company could move it at cost if required. I would be happy to drive onto back of lorry for you if needed.
Please look closely at the photos.
