Dredger Repairs

by: Andrew R

Dredger No 5 back in action again today. Our dear Dredger is feeling it's age and we have been working it hard.
Monday two major leaks in the hose and a radiator leak.

Took to a great guy Steve, at Cheltenham Radiators where he did a grand job repairing and modifying it.  Came back 12 hours later and yesterday started reassembling through to today in the bilge attached to confined space gear. 

Finally back to Bowbridge and ready for work Thursday.

The Weedie team using Weedie trialled manoeuvring The Hopper WEFT back to Stanton's Bridge.  Showing  there are many ways of moving a hopper.
