Always surprised that on these types/uses of shaft, that there isn't a couple of grease nipples to be able to lather them up along shaft length!?! There is a hell of a lot of torsional drag when raising or lowering the tool with power on, that 'twist' really does put pressure of the tubes as well as the spiders but it ain't easy to lubricate the inner and outer surfaces.

Grease? Dirty horrible stuff, we don’t bother with any of that....

The ram on the RSL thumb decided to fall apart, not too bad considering its been in daily use for yonks. Could have done without the hydraulic oil spill though  :thumbdown:

Upside is RSL sent out a new one on the overnight :thumbup1:

Is the truck about to become a beavertail behind the mudguard?
