I drove a 90 the other day towing my tracked chipper and it was great, plenty of grunt pulling up hills. I'm just pricing up a 130 crew cab tipper at the mo as I'm thinking of changing.

It's done 63k so not much miles, it does get worked hard though. I wanted to get a price on one though as they are stopping making them next year I think so it was out of intrest more than anything.

I'm going to try one when I get a few minutes in the next few weeks.

I was going to have a car [took a 2.2 Jag XF out the other day, was a bit disappointed with the engine to be honest...] but a 110 utility works out so cheap on tax, just need to have one for a day or two to try it out...

Not had the chance to try a 2.2 Puma yet, but I love my 2.4 (2007).

 

I'm not sure the DPF is a good idea on the 2.2

 

Apparently it's mounted very close to the engine to ensure it gets hot enough to regenerate at the potential lengthy periods at low speeds LR's operate at.

That said, I imagine it won't be long [they may even be out there already] before a replacement exhaust section is available to allow the DPF to be removed. The advantage LR owners have on this front is there's only one engine so not a huge range of different sections to produce. Some cars [bMW for instance] have to have the it cut out and the exhaust welded up if you want the DPF removed.....
