This 1-Ton city was used as a cherrypicker by Southern Electricity Board in the Bournemouth area. The original cherrypicker was by Spencer and had model number HM28. The vehicle is generally very original and in reasonable condition. It had the SEB fleet number 752-4199. The vehicle has now had the incorrect engine removed and the next job is to replace the missing six cylinder engine and ancillaries. A new chassis will be required too.
The vehicle is currently being stripped down and a new chassis is on the way from Richards Chassis.
When in service with SEB it would have looked a bit like this. This is not the same vehicle, but an identical one. If anyone knows anything about the Spencer HM28 cherrypicker please get in touch.
