thats right you need an old licence and there is no restriction on the weight you can tow, the llimit is the vehicles plated train weight.

Got me looking, I’ve never signed up for one of them stealth ID Card licences, so old paper job for me!

 

A quick look I can’t find me having the 107 restriction, so looks like I could be good to take full advantage?

Whatever you do do not return this original to DVSA, they will lose some categories when you get a photo licence and you will have no proof. A mate lost his motorcycle entitlement this way.

Happened to me a few years ago. Had full bike license pre 97 passed car test a little after but had grand father rights for trailer on paper license as had taken full ‘driving/riding’ test pre 97. Had it checked a few times on roadside stops over the years and all ok. Then sent it in for a change to Id card and got the new license back minus entitlement and had to take b+e test.

An absolutely bona fida mechanic I knew, and RUC Reserve too, was spitting blood, when he absently mindedly put his old blue NI licence in for renewal, sans photocopying same, and lost his proper big motorbike entitlement, and despite busting a gasket trying to get redress, he made zilch of it.

Eddie.

the 107 is purely a date of when you got your licence, if have the old one then you are unrestricted BE, new kids restricted to 8250kg.

 

Also dont forget you have to renew the photo driving licence every 10 years, £1000 fine for out of date one.

Finally a bit of good progress on the Sennebogen and got to have a bit of a shakedown of some of the mods I requested today.

She’s operating great now and a few more tweaks should be perfect. I was genuinely impressed.

 

Some great details being done to my spec by Molson who have a guy who’s absolutely meticulous at such work.

 

How’s that for a nice non marking blade setup.

 

Shameless plug, but it’s time to get in touch if you’re interested in getting this out on your projects.

Wowsers! What an amazing machine! 

How does the reach compare to your Liebherr? 

What is the quick release hose block attached to - I can’t work out how it’s supported off the telescopic dipper?

Also, can you fold the arm down low enough for roading with that head on, or do you move it separately?

Mega bit of kit, I bet you can’t wait to put it to work!!!

Reach with this configuration is about the same as the Liebherr with say the Hans Habbig setup under the Engcon.

The Liebherr has another 6 metres extra over this with the Extension.

 

The Liebherr would obviously throw this Sennebogen over the nearest hedge in terms of power, but it’s all horses for courses and this is giving away about 12 tonne to the Liebherr.

 

That Block is on a bracket, it’s all setup a bit like a Harvester simply to get as much flow as possible down to the end.

This has a Fixed Tooth Mulcher, a Stump Grinder, and a beast of a Rotary Cutter Head, all very power Hungry.

 

Yes it can! All  done very cleverly by Vosch to be able to fold her up and off down the road!

That’s part of the game changer bit, the ability to unload in easier access places and await being called into road/lane closures. Do the job and out again in quick time.

 

Cab goes up unreal high, nosebleed stuff and tilts back a ridiculous way too. Fantastic vision, and the latest 360 camera I specced is on another level.

 

I’d be crazy not to be looking forward to getting it all shaken down and the creases ironed out.

 

Be some good discounts for the first hirers who are prepared to work with me to allow a bit of setup time here and there, and will get the full raft of attachments at their disposal thrown in.

 

Good to go!
