  1. I have a Henchman tripod and the welds are going where the steps attach to the uprights in a couple of places. I like the platform and bar at the top to lean against. A customer of mine has a set of Haesgawa tripods, and they are much better built and sturdier to use, thnan the Henchman. It is what I will be buying next time.
  2. Thanks guys. I'm picking up an old grain bucket off ebay on Saturday, and will get it modified to fit the tele handler. The forks on the telehandler have a tip function, so should work. Cheers.
  3. Hi all Can anyone point me in the right direction to find a grain bucket that attaches to pallet forks on a telehandler? I have an old Liner Giraffe and the headstock is fixed, so no quick release. Cheers.... Al
  4. All good. Predator say there is meant to be a slight gap as it pushes on the outer race to stop it spinning.
  5. Going to press it out again and measure, also check the housing isn’t damaged in any way stopping the bearing sitting properly.
  6. Pressed the old bearing out and the new one in. The oil seal in the ring is not sitting flat to the bearing housing, even though the bearing is pressed fully home. The bearing supplied looks a little different to the original, but assuming they are the same size. Any ideas?
  7. Collar and stub is fine. Picked up a new bearing and oil seals today, so got to press the shaft and bearing out, and then back in again.
  8. Anyone done the job of changing this bearing on a Predator? Cheers...Al
  9. I have sections of oak trunk approx 5 fr Long and 18-24” in diameter. Are these of any use to you wood carvers? Currently in Oxshott, Surrey but I’m bringing them back to my yard near Woking this afternoon. Can be delivered if enroute or near Woking
  10. It sinks here as well, as I found out once when working over a swimming pool. Had to put on a Eddie Murphy accent to tell the client there was a log in his pool! [emoji23]
  11. I just prefer autos as quite urbanised where I live, and traffic jams! The Ranger 3.2 auto can be selectable as well so can drive it like a manual if you want, or of off roading it will lock in gear you select.
  12. This was taken 5 mins after delivery. Hadn’t even driven it at that stage! 😂
  13. If you are towing 3.5t and the towbar is too high then apparently you need an adjustable towball on a four hole towbar. Drop plates aren’t allowed on commercial vehicles. Found this out after I fitted a drop plate!
  14. Good choice!! Mines an auto though.
