About 3 years back now, I had a Christmas holiday in Ontario, Canada. There wasn't much else to do just before the preparations for a christmas party began so me and my uncle who lives over there went out for a drive in his truck. We passed a chicken farm, which I thought was a warehouse at first; very imposing big steel buildings! Saw a large backhoe parked out front so we drove down to have a quick look and it was quite a size of a machine!
However, I've been asking questions about this machine for a long time (even on dedicated Ford forums) and have not got any more information apart from the following:
Four equal-sized wheels (JCB 4CX-style)
Never made in the US.
Ford's largest machine.
Made just before New Holland took over the production line of Ford TLB's.
I've been looking for a brochure on this machine for a long time but none have appeared in my sights, even a photocopy of a specification/dimension list would be really ideal since that is the kind of stuff I'd really like to know.
Any information on this machine would be greatly appreciated!
