Re: Road TAX

I had a complete nightmare registering my Menzi for the road. Ended up on a Q plate, but road tax £165 per year. Annual renewal was a couple of months ago and it was still £165 then.

Re: Hookloaders

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.
