Anybody used TGS in bristol to make tipper?

Recommended Posts

I hate smart Phones grrr ok on Pc now with pics, had it built in 2002 and sold it in 2010. Used it mainly for gardening, carrying mowers and rotovators, the odd tree job. Sadly the Ford part of the trunk got older than the rear end!

Yes the lad I work with has just had one done,it is the best made tipper body I have seen,and I am into fabrication and car building myself and I'm not very easily impressed.

BUT. when they send you the quote make sure you are sat down with your wallet firmly clenched between your bum cheeks.

Also don't expect it to be light his turned out a couple of hundred kilos heavier than he wanted.

Also don't hold your breath while it is being built you could probably build a small house in the time it took

Ours '05 transit has an extra high & half roofed (for use as hedge platform) arb body by TGS. We got the whole thing 2nd hand but as said, the build quality etc is v good & we'll have another when needed.

thanks for the replies.

 

its either them or get a local agricultural engineer to make it up. can't make up my mind

 

Have you had a quote of them yet,

If you are comparing them to a local ag firm I would think you haven't.

We had a budget,and started to get quotes off a few companies, there price made you think they were going to be using gold plated rivets.

But we still had it as it was clear the quality was spot on.

Tipping body for Izuzu rodeo with side tool box barn doors ladder racks,flashing beacon reverse camera,full vinyl wrap.

 

£10,000.
