A little while back I had a 130 tipper and frankly it nearly sent me over the edge.

Bloody thing leaked everywhere, turning circle of a supertanker, lost a fortune on it as I couldn’t register it over here. Swore off the LRs for ever.

But time is a great healer, and my brother in law is selling this 110, I looked around it (and underneath!) and it seems as sound as they can be.

The 110 pick up is the only configuration that would tempt me, so I snapped it up.

I’m keeping the Ranger, as I don’t want to depend on a LR for work, it’ll be a good tow tug, I’ll sign write it, and my nephew will use it to get to the yard.

Its also the right colour, sort of matching the MO and the Ranger, which seemed like a sign.

 It’s in the spray shop atm, getting the dents sorted, plus I’ll get the roof and wheels done in black, new set of General Grabbers all round.






Looks a tidy truck, look after it and make a profit when you sell it.

Rich, I´m only seeing this now, but they are legal. There is a few here in Denmark, mainly old Ivecos. The wegith limit is 7 tonne - 3500 kilo vehicle, 3500 kilo trailer. That is, IF you want to stay one a BE license. In theory, if you have a CE, there is nothing stopping you in using a 7,5 truck for towing a bigger trailer. If the truck is rated for it, of course :)

In the UK you could go higher trailer weight IF you have a BE licence pre 19-01-2013 as the trailer allowed was unlimited.
