A tight squeeze ....

A tight squeeze ....

Jason Ford, a local builder and regular CBL customer, won a contract to build a retaining wall around an existing property. The existing property is on a level higher than the area where the excavator, needed for the job, has to work.  

This meant that the machine had to be dropped down a level to work in a contained area to remove the existing wall.  The only way to get the machine into this low and restricted area was to lift it over a fence, after removing some panels, and drop it into the back garden as there was no other means of access. 

Andy Taylor, Depot Manager at CBL Bristol, organised the whole thing and was there to see the Takeuchi TB210 delivered and lifted into place. The excavator will be down there for the next 4 weeks or so and then the whole process will need to be reversed to lift it back out again!
