Re: Hookloaders

Looks like basically you need an extra set of rollers and you are away.
Anyway, as I donít have a hooklift I wonít be bidding, but I would be interested if I did.

Re: Druidís New Duck Ė í99 Hydrema-Wiemar M1500

Iím amazed just how quiet these super silent genies are. I have a 10kva normal one and you need ear defenders within about 25m of it. We recently had the electricity board working locally and they...

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.
Depends on how critical a little extra weight will be. What size...

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.
