(a) the Construction and Use Regulations; and

(b) the Goods Vehicles Type Approval Regulations.

so if it does not satisfy that there is no point going any further into the regs
BUT! a duck & tipping trailer doesn't meet (a) & (b) above when coupled together going about the work they are designed to do. does it?

Bare with me, I've only read it a coupe of times and swore I wasn't going to get dragged in but the edge just gave way

Right I've read it again.

Decision is.............

Duck & trailer hauling ass down highway carrying its attachments is legal.

Having dug a hole in road and hauling the dug material down highway on trailer to a compound to tip it off and return with type 1 & or tarmac is legal.

That is my interpretation of the rules and provided by the law makers

Why you didn't ask in the first place I simply don't understand.

Yes Ollie, tell them dad said it was OK

I'd have to sit for a couple of hours going through all the jargon again, and again before I can start to agree or disagree with many of the points / arguments raised.

Bottom line is, it doesn't effect me ( at the moment) so not a lot of point in me getting wound up about it, too much.

On the carrying excavated material question and how? I assume it would be referencing having a bucket full, be it a duck or BHL.


Just using the Agriculture model Rob, these small modern Ducks like the Hydradig, Mecalac etc would be perfectly acceptable at 25mph. In agriculture over 2.55 metres wide means 20mph limit and this would be a sensible way to go about it, meaning the bigger machines stay as they are.

I do not know if I should laugh or cry for you duck op's in UK

Here in Norway it is allowed to tow a trailer behind the ducks they

need nor be registered since construction machines do not need to be that here

No limit on distance, or on what you have in it either

The duck must have traffic insurance and the op's must have machine operator license and car license

Even if the double trailer like this is not allowed here either




While this is fully legal
