I'm after a flat bed with a tail lift but would consider a Luton, just dont think it would look right, too much like a remvals van! But then again we do tree removals so I guess its would be ok.

 

Mozza, that a fire starting flint. Not sure why its there really!

I quite like the idea of leaving a luton parked up with a bunch of crap in it that is usually in my way at the lock up! And maybe havign a picnic table and chairs in for lunch when its wet out!

 

Have you tested the tail lift much? Will it really lift 500Kgs ? 2-3 big logs and you would be full!!

OOooops!!! This is the stearing track rod, its supposed to be straight! No one is owning up to what happened but it was while doing a site clearance, I think it drove over a stump or something. Next day I drove it was like steering a boat!!

 

The front wheels had two different ideas of which way to go so it was a bit of a battle. I ordered the parts but had a couple of days of work I had to get on with, needless to say the front tyres are scrubbed now!

 

No worries, all fixed, £45 for the bar + 2x £30 for track rod ends no worries.

Not done the tyres yet, they are scuffed but not totally knacked! Due for all 6 new tyres soon anyway, so will manage for now.

Why so? Its still on the same set as when I bought it in 2009 (actually I think one got changed) so, yes, its an outlay but its such a cheap truck to own/run that its no problem. I will get decent tyres that will last well, not cheapo rubbish.
