Who's got a small one!

Recommended Posts

I know a guy who built a MEWP onto a before rascal.
We used to run a Fiat Doblo for the tools and as an ‘advance party’ to get to the job and get set up. Tipper and chipper would follow later.
It was an efficient way of working in some ways but running lots of different vehicles was costly so we ended up downsizing.

Is that a Mitzi or Dihatsu? Brilliant little van. Death trap though. Imagine heading on in that.
Lad I went to college with had a tip in something similar in a Hyundai, good bit bigger too. Broke both legs. I'd imagine after a proper shunt in one of them they just open the rear door and pour what's left into a casket... on a lighter note,
Some lunatic stuck a hayabusa engine in one



Gone like a stabbed rat!

If you ever get one and fancy a 2.3 engine to put in it I have a rebuilt one with less than 300 miles on it in my garage which needs the head torquing down and rocker shaft put back in
