The firm of Weatherill was founded the late 1940s in North London by the former Finance director of Chaseside. The machines were designed on a Ford Skid unit the same, but was designed as a hydraulic loader, as opposed to rope operated on the Chaseside. The first model was the H1 prototype, in 1950.

By 1954 the company has expanded and larger premises required. They moved to Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire just outside London.

They started using Ford components and Engines but moved to Perkins engines with Brockhouse transmissions, Twindisc or Clarke Transmissions and Leyland engines.

But as sites get cleared and scrap prices rise are disappearing fast.They occasionally come up for sale in Classic Plant & Machinery Magazines for sale section, and other similar publications, or a clearance auctions going for scrap money.
