  9. Ldv truck

    I have had three over the last ten years, they have all been great ! really good value for money compared to a transit, parts are pretty easy to get theres a company called ksl up north somewhere who break them and can get 95% of the parts the rest can come of a transit or be modified to fit an ldv, the brakes are pretty poor but you just get used to them.
  10. Entec feed rollers!!

    is the throttle fully down, cos I have that problem and have now sadly have to use a bungee to hold it down !

  15. hi guys , sorry no pics as yet but some will follow. a client of mine has a v big yew which some fool buried under 3 ft of concrete and patio slabs about 10 years ago,now with the slabs gone I intend to remove the concrete and re-establish the correct soil level, mulch and feed. the trees in a pretty poor state with a receding canopy which now has last seasons extension growth starting to recede as well. my questions really directed at whether the removal of the concrete and feeding /mulching may just tip it over the edge ?
