What are you driving and what's on the back?

Does it work well, what kind of work?


This is my latest setup:


Freelander 1.8 petrol and unbraked 8x4 trailer.

Got a small winch to pull small logs on, greedy boards and a grilled ramp.

It'll hold all my saw, mills and gear, ladders and logs/slabs in the trailer.

Hopefully I'll be adding a 4" chipper in the next few months.

Cost £690 for the freelander and £400 for the trailer.

Very cheap and versatile for subbing or milling.

Cheap as chips.

IIRC Just make sure the newer tyres are on the front than the rear, as other way wind up the transmission. Check out the forums on this
