Moving the excavator parts to Oostrozebeke

Monday 14 february, Robert Vandaele of Vandaele Machineries out of Oostrozebeke who is now already about 2 years advising and helping us getting our frame mobile on tracks, came to load the excavator pieces who arrived last summer.
He's also picking up a Gardner 100hp 6 cylinder oldtimer in Kortemark we bought to build everything together and to test all the pieces.
As Robert and now his children are dealers of JCB, we also bought the undercarriage of a JCB 200LC. Besides that it's an UK excavator for what was a UK tank.

first working, afterwards the beer ...

big Vandaele machinery ...

indeed, yellow passion on the move !

Robert, as we know him, very dedicated and invaluable for this phase of the project.
Thanks Robert !

Georges and his brother Sylvain, second World War orphins ..., because their father helped a Polish pilot escaping


Robert busy inspecting everything

everything ready to move on
