The Termite was built in Britain by T J Products. It was probably one of the less-well-known towable diggers from the 1980's. This machine was fitted with a Honda G300 8HP engine. Information about this machine is rather scarce and the following copy of the marketing literature (kindly supplied by Wayne) is all I have about it.
The Termite below belongs to another Jim who has just acquired it (15/03/11). In the picture, you can see the engine has been removed and that is why the digger is tipped up. Jim has now got the engine running and there will be some more photo's added soon. This is the only Termite I have seen since the website was started.

The Termite has a removable tow bar.
