Viking is a Massey Ferguson 40 digger with a back-hoe.
As part of a community drive to save the digger from the scrapyard, it was delivered to The Shed sometime late 2019. Which achieved the goal of any further deteroiration and it being cut up for spares.
Upon arrival the hydraulics leaked like a sieve however work was quickly undertaken to stop this from continuing.
The machine was immobilized by over year due to a third party taking parts away to repair them, which were never returned. Thankfully the LMM community helped by sourcing these missing parts which have now been installed. Viking worked for 1 week before springing another leak, which Lawrie is currently attempting to gain access to.
Current Status – Under repair.
