Re: Jcb fastrac

Yup, just like every over 'agricultural' groundworks contractor. You might get away with it for years, saving yourself a fortune. You might also become a test case vs HMRC;)

Bloody hell Dan, talk about a can of worms. Light blue touchpaper and retire! :eek::D

Re: Auger unit for tb016 and tractor

I'm doing the same, sharing with my farmer neighbour so will watch with interest. I was thinking the Digga PDX-2 would fit the bill? 20-50LPM.

Re: Vacum slab lifter

I have tons of room on this job- it's to lay slabs on top of an existing hoggin courtyard path. I've always considered laying and adjusting big slabs a 2-man job? Pain in the arse when you lift them...

Vacum slab lifter

If I get a large job locally, I'm tempted by a small (150kg) second hand one of these to chain to the digger. Thinking it would make it easier to lay down large 600*900 slabs, and also lift them up...

Re: Mini crusher

Inverter arc helps but MIG will give you much better welds for a shallower learning curve for basic fabrication.

If yours looked like seagull shit it was most likely a 'gasless' mig, which are...

Re: partner k650

I agree with Ollie. I use £20 Toolstation blades for my TS410, and have no complaints. I also have abrasive blades for rough steel cutting, and a carbide 'ripper' type blade that is awesome for...

Re: Druid’s New Duck – ’99 Hydrema-Wiemar M1500

Bagsupplies.com for vented bags. Or eBay.

Re: 7-8 ton tracked excavator

I ordered a 12" for a 1.5t and they sent me what looked like a three ton bucket with 30mm pin bosses. Bosses misaligned too. Might have improved by now but he's basically just a middleman.

Re: Servo accumulator

It's standard on the Hyundai/Case minis. Can't say I notice it being a whole lot smoother, but it's nice enough.
