When push comes to shove

Retired bulldozer once used for pushing fishing boats back into the sea at Hastings.

Fantastic specimen of a worn out tractor John! I can just gaze upon this photo and see the former glory days of this bit of machinery smile
John Prior: There seems to be a mixture of make do and mend and inovation in these fishing communities.

Yup, I think that's going to need quite a few shoves before it goes anywhere. Great photo!
John Prior: Yes I would imagine it is rusted solid
well, that is a handy machine
John Prior: No longer working I think, but ideal for pushing winched up boats back down the steep shingle

A real gutsy looking old thing John: lovely shot
John Prior: There was a good selection of old bulldozers here, including a Track Marshall and a Fiat.
Ohh John, love that rust! Good shot.
John Prior: Gone to rust heaven smile
Goodness knows how old this must be, I guess it will just sit there and slowly decay, how sad.
John Prior: Almost solid rust now, but no doubt survived the salt for a long time.
Nicely rusting away.
John Prior: Salt with everything here smile
Awesome rust shot!!
I guess this has everything, rust, decay, machine, plants, and colour. ell planned.
Great capture! Love the deep rusty engine here!
Have a nice day.
