Over Weight ?

Recommended Posts

I'm going to buy a Carlton SP7015 TRX, the one Im looking at is a 2006 model.

 

Has anybody who's already got one, had it weighed ? I know the official literature states that its 2ton but I'm not convinced that this is right, I think its heavier. My trailer, with screens, boards, ramps, tools and spare diesel weighs 2.3 ton so it could be important. I'd rather not be on the M3 with a VOSA officer proving to me my trailer and machine is overweight.

mines a 2007 and comes in at 2500kgs but i've upgraded the rubber tracks, fitted a tow bar and it was full of fuel and caked in mud when it was weighed.

      Had some woodchips delivered. Lovely quality and for free. Was able to start my garden project. Am so pleased with the service that i have decided to give a tip for my next tip waste load.

      Excellent result last year. I was contacted by some tree surgeons through the site after about 6 months. They were thoughtful and helpfully left me with several piles of clean woodchip, which now helps suppress weeds under my trees. Great site. Thanks

      Extremely helpful and friendly main contact and the allotment was very easy to tip at. Much appreciated!

      Answered phone, dropped off within 10 mins. Access ok for transit but no bigger. 3.5m3 load. Spot on, saved me a trip to the yard.

      Brilliant! Had two loads delivered, spot on time, great bloke, would not even take a few Bob to cover his time and fuel, over the moon. I just have to cut and split 6 tonnes of logs now. I will have to buy the wife a new splitting axe for Christmas. 😁
