Video: O&K RH6 excavator
You can imagine Technical Editor Ron Horner’s excitement when he spotted an old 1970s-era, German-made O&K RH6 excavator in original working condition just off a Queensland highway.
It’s not something you see every day, so Ron naturally chucked a U-ey and climbed all over the old girl to get this video.
As Ron explains in his feature, O&K machines were innovative in their day and made a successful transition from cables to hydraulics, using twin joystick controls and running two-piece fully adjustable booms.
