Peter's Truck Thread

Recommended Posts

seen as thoo that winch and crane is in really good working condition might as well use that :) we have done a lot of jobs where it would be handy to have this machine on site, but as you can see its not really somthing that wants to move tooo far from our yard, so we're just gunna mount that on a slightly more modern truck that we could get pretty cheap :thumbup1:

 

i would have thought kit that old will have some serious h&s issuse even if re mounted on a newer base ????

Rupe, you need category C, which is the old class 2 HGV. If you want to tow with it you need C+E, the old class 1HGV. I have both anyway, so not a problem for me.

 

Chipbox is in the pipeline, but it needs to earn some money first. I dont run my own chipper at the moment anyway.
