    Surprisingly, I came across a photo of another Hydro Bug just yesterday that had been on the forum a while back.

    I have found no further information beyond that it was made in the 1970’s by a company owned by Jack Wilderspin Ltd, High Street (or possibly College Farm), Fen Drayton, Cambridge.

    There’s reference in The Grower magazine in 1977 to the Hydro-Bug along with a machine called the Jack-Truck.

    Jack Wilderspin, being a local engineer, also made the Jack-truck which aided the loading of pallets. There is no reference as to what the Hydro-Bug was intended for.

    An interesting find. I suspect to find technical information about parts like engine, gearbox and transmission it will be a case of contacting the various makers of those components.

    The hydrostat looks like an Eaton one similar to the one used on the Jacobsen Tri-King.
