  1. I can never get my head around people rating land rovers. Personally I think there uncomfortable and most of all totally unreliable.
  2. Exactly the same as mine. What a tool!
  3. Silenced 410 is my choice with 3" cartridges
  4. When you say flame top do you mean sunburst?. My dad has a Jimmy page edition in black lovely bit of kit could be collectable now. He also owns a fender strat with lace pick ups and I think that is a Eric Clapton signature along with his other guitars such as Taylor's, Yamaha's and P.R Smiths.

    I would think £55 - £60 per sq meter sounds about right for dig out. I do a lot of tarmacing and there's very little difference in price per meter.
  6. Where does it all finish it just gets harder and harder to stay legal these days. No wonder there's so many people running around illegal maybe there better off taking the risk and paying the fine. That way would maybe cheaper than running to the book and that's if you get caught the longer they get away with it the more money they save.
  7. I always use a regular mechanic who is proper old school and very much a perfectionist sometimes to much. The only 2 things he cannot check is the brakes and emissions a lot of mechanics/fitters don't have brake and emissions testing equipment . Last time I went my truck failed the brake test typical !!.

    Start with putting a new spark plug in. If that doesn't work trace the problem back from there it could be a wire that's worn etc.
  9. Yes mate I know the feeling after 25 years on the highways. Diesel dissolves bitumen that's a fact!
  10. Ideally you want H.R.A planings which is a surface course generally of major roads and motorways. In the past seen planings which have come from rotten highways they never seem to bed down. I wouldn't advise diesel putting diesel on them as it washes the bitumen of the stone.
  11. Are there not two types of Cpc. Firstly a operators licence and secondly a drivers Cpc?.
  12. Yes mate I remember the Royal Show in the glory days . Not to far from me no other show ever replaced it. The Stoneleigh show ground seems so wasted today:thumbdown:
  13. Severn Trent mate the problem we have is the distance we cover sometimes you spend a lot of time traveling from one site to the next. You definitely get about with this job.
  14. Coincidence I'm out spreading sewage cake aroun the warwickshire , Leicestershire and Northampton area. We are flat out with four tractors and spreaders going and a Volvo shovel. We try to spread 2000 ton a day minimum but that depends on traveling and field conditions as I imagine you well know.
