The MF Hanomag dozer ripping up the earth; the Hanomag company dates back to 1835, building steam engines from which it progressed to making many other types of machinery. The construction division was sold to Massey Fergusson in 1974 and was taken over by the IBH Group in 1980: after the collapse of IBH it became part of Komatsu

This year’s Welland Steam & Country Rally was spectacular with a fantastic collection of classic plant working over the three-day event. Among the machines seeing action was a Terex 82-30 bulldozer that belonged to Adrian Reed; this dozer featured in the very first issue of Classic Plant and Machinery and its 6-71N ‘Screaming Jimmy’ Detroit Diesel engine sounded superb, even if it was loud!

Many other classic dozers were in attendance, including Paul Badger’s Caterpillar D6, a 1941 Caterpillar D4, a Fowler Challenger 33 (one of two) an MF Hanomag D600C belonging to Keith Thomas and a Rolls Royce-powered International Harvester BTD-20 belonging to Dehane Rhodes: not a classic as such was a Komatsu D41P that also saw action at this event.

The show provided a vast array of other classic machines, from a steam shovel to a collection of classic JCBs, plus a collection of tracked loading shovels; the working field once again proved its popularity - evident by the large number of visitors viewing the machines in operation and those on static display.
