  3. Garage break in Pirbright, Surrey

    It's rife at the moment, We had an attempted brake in on Thursday night/Friday morning, broke sensors on security lights and started striping of the cladding on the side of the workshop but failed to get in. We are based in Witley near Godalming.

    From my experience, I would go along the lines of you have been using it as you are for more than 10 years (it's there job to prove other wise) they will more than likely drop the case.

  7. Unimogs rock thread

    personally I would have liked the axles a bit further forward but it hasn't been a problem. If I get a chance I may move them foward. The crane is a 3 point linkage one so comes off fairly easily and I have loading ramps stowed away under the trailer so yes ideal for moving a 5 tone digger!

    Only picture I could fined I will take some during the week
  9. Show us your Arb Diggers please.

    The kx61 is 2.6 ton so tows legally on a plant trailer with all the buckets. I am rubbish at taking pictures of machines in action as I'm always to busy trying to get the job done!
  10. Show us your Arb Diggers please.

    My Kubota kx61 makes life easy on large take downs and it's amassing what you can roll around with it if its to big to lift!

    It pulls well drives fully loaded with the chipper on the back not much different to empty. With the trailer on and fully loaded you aren't going any when quickly but you wouldn't want to. The trailer as far as I know was built to be towed by a mog it has air brakes all round personally I would have liked the axles a bit further forward but it hasn't been a problem. it's plated at 10500kg the tipping body is 4.2m long by 1.95m wide so follows the mog well.

    Yes it is a light ish chipper it doesn't sit down to much at the rear fully loaded but it has recently had new rear springs. Yep it's the courts yard! In fact it's joe you can see on the crane controls!
  13. Unimogs rock thread

    Yes it was full ag spec from new. I belive it Was originally sold by Ibbetts with a front mounted hedge/ verge trimmer so has front pto and aircon ect.

    We've only had it 3 months but so far so good. Handles the trailer well and we have a 10" junkkari on the back of it most of the time which isn't he best chipper in the world but handles it well.

    Our u140 a bit more refined than a u900 but still very compact
