  1. Try it on resinous woods. Some even use red.
  2. The saw band is water cooled? Some still add an additive to the water. On some timbers it makes a big difference.

  4. The reversing required on a car test is pants. Basically just parking into a space or a straight reverse for two car lengths. I like to take mine on a narrow country lane with less than 1 foot to spare all round. Then reverse round a few gentle bends with good views for safety. Also teach to actively look for passing points or just wide sections. So many stop in the narrow section having just passed a wide bit.
  5. Dont get stopped. The amount of metal wont keep you from getting a ticket.
  6. The D denotes the dynamic load limits. Ring / ball combo units can be down rated if the pin runs in the middle of the ball. Look for ones with a separate pin / ball. D values The "D" value is a rating measured in kN which reflects the dynamic loading limits between a towing vehicle and a trailer. (Wikipedia) The "D" value of a Towing Jaw determines the gross weight combination of the towing vehicle and the trailer that can be used with that particular jaw. The "D" value is calculated as follows: D = 9.81 × (T × C) ÷ (T + C) T = Towing Vehicle Weight - GVW C = Trailer Weight - GVW 9.81 = Gravity For example, a towing vehicle of 3500kg GVW combined with a trailer of 3500kg GVW would require a towing hitch with a "D" value of: 9.81 × (3.5 × 3.5) ÷ (3.5 + 3.5) = 17.167 Historically, the maximum GVW of an LCV was 3500kg and the maximum GVW for an over-run brake system is 3500kg - hence why a "D" value of 17kN is the most common
  7. Down side is most small transits cant tow much weight. ] The 280 range a paltry 800kg & the 250 1000kg.
  8. Torque is more important for hills.
  9. Is that a grey import?
  10. You wont get 7500kg GTW on a post 19-01-2013 BE licence. Its 7000kg.
  11. I use the WP30. Last contract job I did we split about 23 IBC's to sub 9" in a day. Me on the processor & one person feeding the stack to my lifters & taking the filled cages away. If it cant 4 / 6 way split you can single split the harder stuff.
  12. Before I bought my Wp30 I looked at them. Lighter made & no road legal trailer were my worries.

    Down rating trucks

    You would need active ie air brakes on the trailer to gross over 3500kg.
