We recntly bought this digger, which is labled as a Volvo. However we think it may be a pel job eb10.
We need to sort an oil leak on one of the tracks and our local friend fixer man has asked us to get him a diagram or guide to taking the tracks apart.
BUT we are not sure what the machine is so its proving difficult.
So the question is, can anyone please tell me what make /modle this digger looks like?
I can get more pics if necessary
thanks for any advice.

Is there no id plate at all on the machine?

Looks like a 1.5t machine,where is the oil leak? Track motor?

Sorry but your "fixer man" isn't up to much if he needs a diagram.

no, annoyingly, we cant find a plate, it is a 1.5 the oil is coming from the end of the track and we believe it is the seal on the final drive which need fettling.

Fixer man is a genius who can make anything work even when others have failed and rejected things as a write off. Any obsolete parts he fabricates himself from tiny bits to muckspreader cogs.

I'm certain he can do the job but he just asked to see a diagram before he starts stripping it down as its not one he did before and he just wants be be 100% certain what he is going to find when he starts removing parts. I would rather that than risk mucking it up.

Just for clarification ( and yes I do know that this is an old post ).
The random letters that I posted are not a secret code but is the model and make of the pictured digger.
YGNR manufactured these machines in Italy, a lot of them had Volvo stickers on them, presumably sold through Volvo dealerships.
Most have been repainted in there life and lost their identity.
I own one of these ( it was sold to me as Volvo pel-job !) and it took me ages to identify it, eventually revealing its identity when I sanded through the paint revealing it’s original markings.
