Re: Tilty Advice please.

I would go for s40 on a 2700kg machine. It should be able to take the weight and is big enough to run loads of attachments.

Re: Tilty Advice please.

I have s40 on both my small walkers (rated 1.5t). There seems to be a larger range of off the shelf attachments available in S40.

Re: Isuzu Dmax 1.9

I donít run the d-max empty as purely work vehicle one of my guys drives, so not sure about empty comparison.

Re: Isuzu Dmax 1.9

Yes, 1.9 twin turbo. Marginally better fuel economy than the 3.2 auto, but loses a fair bit of speed on hills when towing compared to the ranger which just kicks down on cruise control and keeps...

Re: Isuzu Dmax 1.9

I have a d-max manual. Tows 3.5t okay. Not as good as ranger 3.2 auto, but better than Landrover defender puma.
Mine is white and the paint is so thin you can see through it in places. Rust coming...

Re: Tim - Rayner Plant

Shame for the guys working there.
From what I saw it is the sort of pre computer kit that if you have a good mechanic will go for ever, which appeared to be how Tim ran it. Donít spend vast amounts...

Re: - it's started BTLs

Some low bridges (ones that reguarly get hit it guess) have sacrificial metal arches a bit before to take the impact. I know they shouldnít need it, but seems a good idea.

Re: - it's started BTLs
