    He’s built hundreds of chip boxes for unimogs and quite often sees them 15-20 years later still going.

    Yeah 7.5t with 3.5t towing capacity. Similar physical size to a transit though.

    How do you work that out?

    My new chip box on the little truck. I need to have a proper measure up but should hold about 10 cube.
  5. I’m definitely not jealous ?
  6. That’s a decent size and spec crane. Is it a 7.5t front axle? What size grab have you gone for? I’m jealous of your extensions, I looked into getting another extension for mine and it was going to be £3k plus fitting for another 1.6m reach.
  7. Its a Hiab by the look of it. What size crane is it? Is it piped for a grab and rotator? Its a similar but newer version of mine with more sticks.

    Tidy looking truck Swinny.
  9. A few pictures from this week. Craning down an Oak that had been previously hacked and removing a knackered Beech using a 33m tracked MEWP.
  10. Try Graham Fawcett 07767 386006 I know he has a cheap tracked and an older tow behind Jensen for sale.
  11. Get an accountant to sort it all for you. They will save you more than they cost you.
  12. I pay £50 a month for yard space on an industrial unit to park my truck for my operating centre. mpg I’ve never worked out, it works out a lot cheaper than a 3.5t truck to run though as you’re doing far fewer trips. I’ve just applied for another vehicle on my Operators licence so I can run a 7.5t Canter instead of a 3.5t truck.
  13. Yeah it was up for sale for a while. I think if it had been further down south it would of sold a lot sooner. If I decide to sell it I’ll probably put it on here anyway.

    Hook loader

    I’m guessing by not looking in to wether they need one or not.

    Hook loader

    A hook loader will leave you with barely any payload on a transit.
