  1. lc4 120 series i think, 3.0 d4d engine 173bhp
  2. looked at both..x trail ..43000 miles on a 12 plate, landcruiser ..127000 miles on a 09 plate, both fsh and 1 owner, both in above average condition..l/c feels more solid and great 4x4 capability, x / trail better running costs, not so rugged, either will be perfect for what i need, similar in price at £12k ..opinions please Cheers as always Mike
  3. Hadnt thought of that, maybe tell them it has been modified, but would prob bump up insurance premium
  4. Not an arb truck but...i have a great little outlander van/4work, great in every way but the seats are very uncomfortable, bad back gets worse when i been driving for more than half an hour, ive tried all combinations of seat pads/lumbar supports etc Anyone had experience of putting a better driving seat in one ie bit plusher from a l200 or what have you, could probably get a mate to weld runners/ bolt holes etc to make one fit Would it be an mot failure ? having different seat/modified Or should i just get a landcruiser Cheers Mike
  5. Thinking of either toyo open country or cooper discoverer at3 for my jeep kk, anyone had dealings with either of these tyres, normally have general grabbers but thinking of trying something different, plus jeep is a bit of an odd size, 235/60/18 Cheers
  6. had the same problem with my dolmar 9000, i went to a machine shop near me and they milled out a stihl bar for me, my old 153 in my picture had a stihl bar also milled out
  7. This has happened within the last week, my trees are in a clump/small avenue , seems to be the middle ones have it, very strange, but like you say warm days and sharp frosts, ill keep an eye on them
  8. At a site i look after we have a small avenue of mature Beech trees and i noticed today at least 4 have started to shed dead leaves, the canopies are looking a bit bare, i have cleared the l;eaves up and will monitor for any more shedding Any ideas as to what this is, ground is chalk , trees are probably 75 ish years old Cheers Mike
  9. i got caught out on a landcruiser, cost me £700 to get it welded up, just about passed its mot , but was rotten as a carrot, probably wouldnt have passed its next mot, lost a few quid on that one, im more careful now
  10. if you type in the reg number of the motor you are looking at into google,normally the first hit will be " regit" this will give you past mot history, you can check if rust has been picked up as an advisory, also mileage etc, i was set on a ranger and then checked mot history and it was a rust bucket
  11. Using rosate 360 at the moment but seems to take up to 4 weeks for any noticible die back, is there anything a bit quicker ? cheers
  12. I have 5 garden/grounds contracts for a growing residential care home business that i am finding difficulty in getting someone reliable /trustworthy/efficient etc to carry them out, how would i go about selling the contracts ? all 5 are worth £38000, regular visits , 12 months of the year, payment via bacs,none of them are rocket science, seasonal baskets/pots etc,grass cutting, beds and borders, hedge cutting/leaf clearance, all have compost areas, all based hampshire.. any thoughts, just need to keep them looking smart all year round Cheers
