Re: - it's started BTLs

If rebated fuel was phased out & everyone paid pump prices would be a good start.

I did say it is cheaper to run a lorry legally than it is to run a tractor legally pulling heavy loads.
You are quite right to say that a lorry can not compete with a tractor that is running...

Re: Ifor williams gh1054

I have had a gh1054 for around 6months now but only carry a 2 tonne digger with it. So far I am very pleased with it, rides nice easy to load & loads of lashing loops.

Re: bloody cheap

I bought some bushes from the same seller, I spoke to them direct as it wasn't something they had listed. Seem like a nice bunch & would definitely use them again.

Re: Mecalac 8cx on ebay

That is exactly how I see it as well, it doesn't give you much confidence buying any of the other listings that they have.

Re: To sick to work.

These sort of things need nipping in the bud early on, they don't send out a very good message to existing hard working employee's.

Re: kubota ignition switch problems

I don't think Rory meant remove the switch as a long term fix besides it needs open contacts to start engine & closed contacts to get hydraulics to work.

Re: kubota ignition switch problems

Re: kubota ignition switch problems
