  1. Show us your Arb Diggers please.

    Eddie, Been following the misery on twitter that machine is awsome and i love seeinb the pictures videos of it working. I sincerly hope the insurance see the machine for what it is. I cant imagine what it must be like to,see your pride and joy like that, Liebherr seem to be one hell of a profesional outfit from what you post many machinery manufacturers could learn from them. I was amazed to read your comment that they quote 3 weeks to repair. All the best and good luck Matt
  2. Excavator with grab hire

    Flannerys have machines with thumbs and grabs. Derek Fitzgerald Plant Hire shepshed have machines and grabs for hire however being leicesterhire based the haulage could be prohibitive.
  3. Advice needed on ring tow hitches

    Please do not do this. A twing eye is designed to be pulled along by the pjn but braked by the jaw not the pin. 30 and 40mm eyes are compatible with the dixon bate ball and pin hitch. They do clunk which is why people dont like them fit a reducing bush and you maybe in bother if pulled by vosa.
