Now that's more like it

And lots of variety.

Oh no Paul23, not 1 but 2. I'm told worst thing after op is having a dump....dunno if this true or not.

As for a 3.5t tipper, I loved my iveco and pulled like buggery. I've now got a sprinter and that's just as good albeit a little down on towing weight.

I might take a guard of a grinder or stand on a ladder in a bucket with a chainsaw this afternoon... that sorta shit always raises a reaction!

If you want a busy forum you have to make it busy!

Busy but if I'm honest interest has dropped off.
Lots of lookers but few posters. That said the regular posters are good craic with something different be it a flat tyre or biggest rock competition and I try to add a comment simply to let them know their posts are appreciated and to maybe prompt others to comment.

Im always flat out thankfully but haven't posted anything lately cos seems its always questions regarding breakdowns etc which arent always interesting.

We have a couple of annoyances atm - an old compressor playing up and a mini dumper that's proving a pita..................... might have to post something up.... owts better than a dead forum.

RE the ongoing threads, they are always worth a read - keep them going less its finished.

Been sick off an on with a respiratory infection, thought I had it beat early last week and then woke up in the morning Tuesday with swollen tonsils to start it off all over again. Been bugging the quacks for years to have them removed because they cause nothing but trouble and finally now they're starting to take me seriously.

Makes you wonder when your telling them something but they keep coming up with different reasons to justify doing nothing
