Bramford-class Wheel Loading Shovel

Editor’s Note: This article originally appeared in Freelance Travellers May 2011 issue.

The Bramford-Class Wheel Loading Shovel is the standard commercial earth mover from Christchurch Corp. that lives up to their reputation of value for money, ruggedness and reliability.

They can be found across Home County in all environments doing all manner of construction or mining activities. The long-duration vacuum usage and high off-road speed are seen as the class’s best selling points. It’s not unheard of for Bramfords to be raced.
