  2. Making the news today....

    I think the mods have sensibly pressed the ignore button o this thread. I like to think there was a time when blatant racism would get you banned too.
  3. Making the news today....

    I was canny sweary, I remembered the ethos that someon's gran should be able to read this forum, so curtailed my language. The sentiment remains however.

    I think he's referring to the amount of swear words MarkJ wrote. I quoted Mark before hen edited his post...
  6. Making the news today....

    Confused.... What sort of language....? The suggestion of a breathalyser or that other offensive drivel?? To follow Ti's lead, on a lighter note, making the news today:
  7. Making the news today....

    Aye, I have edited it but I still believe it to be the case. Ban me if needs be. I find racists to be abhorrent. People talk of a forum as being like a bar, incendiary views like his would be challenged in real life too.
  8. Making the news today....

    There was a day when using that sort of language would get an immediate ban!
  9. How should I treat these yew slices?

    Hell I hadn't considered costing it, I thought it was something you'd enjoy doing. Anyway at the rate you're going you'll be a billionaire by my age
  10. Making the news today....

    arbtalk would be pretty boring if it had a breathaliser before posting
  11. Making the news today....

    You shouldn't drink then post.... I'm thinking of pitching my business idea on Dragons' Den. It's a breathalyser attached to a computer. You'd have to blow into the breathalyser before you could post on Internet forums.... It would save people like you making fools of themselves...

    Yeh going big has many advantages but brings with it a few problems, I do get the impression they have it a lot easier in the states with vehicles weight laws. Would definitely like to see it working but think I'll stick with tractor power for anything bigger than 12".

    Ours is box section steel. we had to extensively modify everything for towing behind the Unimog after the Heavy Duty hitches supplied by snapped on multiple occasions... when the say you can get away with murder on Ag they ain't kidding... we went with VBG and have a type approved ringfeder hitch supplied with appropriate d-value, even working out safety factor of the bolts... If you want to run heavy road tow chippers do it right...

    Phew, must have got them corrected then sir [emoji15]

    Oops sorry I know there's quite a bit more weight in the 1390 bigger drum I think,we thought about one but settled for the 915 with the 142 cat engine and that's bang on 3.5 .whats on you 1390 power wise?
  18. Trailer snaking accident

    If it's not approved they should put it up against standard hitch, they are over engineered just look at a sankey wide track trailer rated at 1 ton and a domestic 1 ton trailer.
  19. Tractor exhaust extraction

    An exhaust is just made from thin steel. Scaffold tubes generally use thicker steel so I think they'd be OK. I'm not sure if constricting the outlet from the exhaust would affect your tractor - easy enough to experiment and maybe have two scaffold tube outlets.
  20. Today

    Matelot's a vile wee nazi. We've discussed this before. @skyhuck I think it's important to give people enought rope to hang themselves. I think we all know that some people's view just aren't compapible with blah blah blah. He's a racist. May the universe smite him and those who promote his ideals.

    Cracking images Mr Git, particularly like the developing dryads saddle

    Its an emotional subject.... it didn't come under 3.5ton it's on air suspension and brakes, with plastic mudguards fitted by the company that did the trailer conversion.
  25. Making the news today....

    Ive travelled to places that are concidered to be third world countries with my time in the forces. Had some good experiences some bad. Its difficult to argue against matelots point-i would agree that some third world countries the entire political/army/police are massivley corrupt but you cant say all third world countries are the same. As for the David Cameron quote ... I wouldnt quote any politician as theyre just as guilty of corruption,lying and greed as any bent third world country official.
  26. Tractor exhaust extraction

    Can you break this down for me... from the exhaust scaffold pipe to be put on a bend so no burn out on the angle where flexi liner joins... not sure wot u mean by the last paragraph can u explain...
