Everyone loves a Tonka toy – and now you can have a real-life one of your very own – ideal for those jobs where a normal Land Rover just won’t do, like clearing ditches to help with drainage, or digging footings for a barn to store your burgeoning Land Rover collection.

The AirDrive Harrier is a backhoe fitted to a Series IIA 109-inch chassis, and was the company’s demonstrator. It was rebuilt by Series Land Rover expert Rob Maude and we ran a full feature about the rebuild in our August 2017 issue. It is in full working order, complete with the backhoe and comes with the concrete breaker and loads of provenance.


It’s up for auction at Cheffins Vintage sale at Machinery Saleground, Sutton, Ely, Cambs, CB6 2QT, on Saturday 20 October – find out more on the Cheffins website.
