    They dont make em like they used to in 1959

    Thank you . 🙂
  4. I've been very happy with my tri axle. I'm glad to have the extra axle braking here on the steep hills in Devon. The forwarder that I mostly transport is by it's nature an uneven load, and the trailer handles it well.

    TPO and conservation area App

    I doubt it, considering that lots of LAs don't even have up to date interactive mapping or their TPOs online as it is. There is a data.gov site where the LAs have provided information - but even that is incomplete and or inaccurate. It's a great idea for an app but I can't see how you'd get all the information to create it.

    Arblease how it works

    Dealer margins on cars are terrible. If they had to sell cars with no finance or servicing they would all be bust in a week. It's the manufacturer that is taking all the profit from the sale of the new vehicle not the dealer. Which is why most manufacturers are self financing or PCPing in order to allow more people to be able to afford ever more expensive cars. On a side note how is a poverty spec Golf ever worth 25K or an Audi A6 nearly 50, its madness. Also, sometimes they dealer has a stocking loan with a lender. If they don't put a certain amount of borrowing their way in a month or quarter then the rate goes up on the stocking loan. Always a handy question to ask if you want some cheap finance and they are short one month.

    Poorly Horse Chestnut Tree

    most of the cost of a removal is getting rid of the crown - you could ask for a pollard at 8ft where it forks just above the fence, then if the regrowth is strong you can cut it yourself off a ladder every 3 years, possibly worth a try

    TPO Tree v Recently built garage

    Yes, the tree was TPO'd, not long after the land was purchased, due to a in coming Planning App.

    Sorry that is BS. My brand new LR 90 had a design feature that allowed water ingress to escape easily. The doors wouldn’t shut properly. My wife, who is not a car designer or manufacturer argued water was only getting in for that very reason. I told her to keep to what she knows best

    tow ball question

    When we used to for towbars for Witter they stated. A drop plate can only be used as a drop plate. The towbar is designed to have the load either as designed or lower due to the fulcrum effect. I suppose it comes down to it being a “Drop plate” not a “raise plate”. If a customer wanted the ball higher we would supply adjustable ball. Or modify the trailer to suite.

    You may well be right.
