  5. Single wheel rear axle tippers

    Bad luck or not these vans are not driven by me so perhaps have a harder life than perhaps they deserve . Towing I agree , mid size or our quad chip no problems but when you start towing tracked chippers it doesn't like it so much . good set up I think , large tool box and good size cage for grass or chip if we need and plenty of hp . My lads just don't seem to like it though .
  6. Single wheel rear axle tippers

    I went down the route of a single wheel fwd citroen relay 3.0 tipper to run along side the transit . My experience is the citroen does not handle the weight so well as the transit at all, also towing does not feel so good . I don't have the knowledge to tell you why this is but it is . We burnt out a clutch and blew a gearbox and flywheel between 50 to 90 thousand but this often happens to tippers when working them hard . On the plus side it is quieter to drive with less transmission noise and works fine for our GM work lugging cut grass and towing the mower . As pete said maybe look at an O license truck which we are if weight is going to be an issue.
  7. Pre Christmas rush

    We're moving jobs to next year with no way of getting them done before christmas. Gray Git is spot on these things have been here for years so whats the problem now . March is funny too getting things done before bird nesting season having known about the job all winter . Much better than last year as we started the year with one job on the books .
  8. 8ft plant trailer

    Have to say the tr8 sits a little heavy on our 8x4 , only fits on the wrong way , truck copes with it , transit doesn't notice but I think I'll try a 9x4 if there is such a thing , or as the previous post a 10x5 would be ok .
  9. Tip site Salisbury

    As above , tip for clean chip and logs near Salisbury , once again thanks in advance for any help

  15. Stopped by VOSA

    Thanks Gary , kind of my thoughts too , seemed overkill for odd plates and a bit of roadside testosterone perhaps on both sides . As for the breakaway I agree as we always have three or four new ones hanging on pegs in the workshop who should have been done before they left .
