While heaping up hardcore ready for a stone crusher to come in Tim House’s excavator started to slip from the top of the pile.

The digger ended up rolling onto its side but miraculaously all that got broken was a pane of glass. It was soon righted using a Matbro and JCB.

After letting the engine settle and reconnecting the battery and fuel she started straight up and is reported to still be going strong to this day.
