    We have a bray b23, came from a mine many years ago. Does anyone have one or know anything about them or what it would be worth as we can’t find anything about them? Pictures to follow

    Is that a model that retains the Fordson tin work and driving position?

    Well either way the old industrial machines appear to make not much over scrap value although you can throw money at them when trying to find parts. :rolleyes:

    Had a ps 4000, i think that,s what it,s no was, thinking back i don,t know why we bought it, it was a pig to climb up into and the levers were stiff to use, tried getting oil down them but it never worked.
