Was about to respond to your mate Rory and he appears to have ****ed off along with his post(s) i was about to quote.

he was right about 7.5 tonner's GTW being 12t .. not 11t as I mentioned earlier, but ..... you'd need a dedicated draw bar trailer to go behind the 7.5 and with the extra build weight of that AND the cost, you'd gain now't, which is why I'd said 11t ..... 3.5t Ifor type trailer on a 3.5t max. cap. ball coupling

Think you may have pissed him off

Dafs are fairly popular so should be able to pick something up with the tipper style your after, don't know about the hiab though you may have to go up a weight class for that to work out.

What about a tri axle ifor with i hiab on
I have seen some fair size hiabs on them and it would save some payload and mean that if someone with grandfather rights needs a hiab they can take the trailer on the back of a van or pickup

Just to wrap this up whilst i'm still pissing myself with laughter....

We pay around 2500 a year for the Merc 1317 skip lorry. 7t payload and 3.5t Drawbar. We have two months left to renewal...

Told it will be an additional 100 over the two months to change to a 2006 Daf 7.5t lorry.....

End of, that's killed that!

on the Hiab note. I've got a swing arm crane coming for the trailer when we need it.
