Details: Here is quite a rare view of a London Country tree lopper actually being used. 34F was one of two Ford D0710 lorries bought in 1979. Initially fitted with the bodies off the previous generation of tree loppers (former London Transport 1241F to 1244F) they were rebuilt with new bodies in December 1984. 34F was photographed near Oxted on 19th May 1986. Later that year it became part of the London Country South East (later KentishBus) fleet. The upper floor on these vehicles was at the level of the panel join on the front, the sides being solid apart from two drop-down sections on the nearside. There were openings in the floor to allow cut branches to be dropped into the main section of the body, while there was also presumably an internal staircase or ladder. At the back were two large doors, with wide hinges to allow the doors to fold against the bodysides as here.
