Back in the summer we sold the first remote controlled Cormidi C85 tracked dumper into the UK. This machine, complete with self loading shovel was sold to Chase Trails.
Chase Trails is a local volunteer group of experts, set up over 10 years ago in partnership with the Forestry Commission to build and maintain the mountain bike trails on Cannock Chase, in Staffordshire.
After some training the volunteers were straight to work and the Cormidi became an instant hit. The following features made the work an easier task:

Last week during a chat to one of the members of the build team who has been putting the remote controlled Cormidi through it's paces we received the following piece of feedback;
"it's the best tool we've ever acquired! In the past, we've occasionally run a 'big build day' where we get 30-40+ volunteers turn up for a day and help out - now we're doing a similar amount of work with just a couple of people each weekend - so it's definitely been a worthwhile investment."
Fantastic that this machine has been so popular already, with many more jobs and trail improvements to come it will continue to impress.
Below are some more images of the C85 in action building the trails, if you would like any further information on this then please contact one of the team on: firstname.lastname@example.org
