Angry The end of our industry is on the horizon

Hello all

Has anyone seen the article in Earthmovers about the implementation of Euro 5 in construction equipment. It seems the idiotic green machine in Brussels has had the bright idea to stop equipment manufacturers from supplying or even building any engine that is not euro 5 after 2019.
Basically meaning when she decides to throw a rod through the side of the block there is no way of buying a new engine or parts to repair ,you either fit a new euro 5 with all the regen gubbins and computer crap that won't fit any way or weigh your machine in for scrap!!!!!!!!
WTF

Steve

I'v never seen the point in fitting dpf's on construction sites, surely someone with a sthil saw or even sweeping up is going to make more 'particulate matter'

Not really Rob - Dan's "that is all" just put me in mind of Chris De Burgh's - "Transmission Ends" - (one of my all time faves)!!

"Until the final act is over, Until every man has spoken,........, Until the day, Transmission ends"!........... ................
"This is station planet Earth, we're closing down, Transmission ends, Station planet Earth is closing down, Transmission ends, transmission ends."

Over and out, now't more to say!!

Dan's comment looked pretty damned final to me and did make me LOL too.

I'm not a particularly 'political animal', but the odd things do get me mad/annoyed!!

Regrettably Lynchy, you are almost certainly 100% right, but we may save a few quid in contributions!!
Like the quote - 'Who's next' - rather apt!!
