  1. Ah right, so it's a tax avoidance scheme! And do you tell your insurance company that you have modified the vehicle???
  2. You missed my point - if you want a vehicle with a rear seat then just buy one like that.
  3. A pet hate of mine - putting seats in a commercial because then it isnt a commercial anymore! If you want seats in the back, just buy a normal version. I think if you buy a commercial and put seats in, you have to pay tax on it if it is within a certain time frame.

    This is a 2016 Vimek 610.2 forwarder with only 230 hours on the clock (this may rise as it is still in use). Has a 68hp Caterpillar engine with a Rexroth transmission. 5,000kg capacity with a Mowi P25 crane capable of a 400kg lift. When new this machine was £115k as it was specified with every option available. It has joystick controls, tilt grapple with brake link, 4 extra bolsters, air conditioning, air seat, new wheel chains and tracks. It has an extended warranty to Jan 2020. Ideal for small scale, low impact work, site clearance, etc. As can be seen from the pictures and from the low hours, the vehicle is in excellent condition. The low loader trailer in the picture was purpose built to carry the machine but is not included in the sale price, although it is available via separate negotiation. The Vimek is located 15 minutes from Newcastle Upon Tyne. Price is £76,500 plus vat and a full vat invoice will be supplied. For further details or to arrange a viewing please contact Peter on 07767 870194

  5. Yes I saw it back on facebook marketplace the other night. The guy who I know that had it did a lot of work to it - professional shot blast of chassis, repaint, new bushes in tipping gear, all new belts on the engine etc. From the new pictures they appear to have stripped the winch off it and the roof rack which is a shame, especiallya s they are asking a fair bit more than they paid!
  6. A friend of many has a number of high value pieces of forestry equipment to sell. I have had them listed on about ten facebook groups, had literally hundreds of like and shares and three people made appointments to view but then either cancelled or just didnt turn up. Only item that has sold was a Unimog. Where else would you recommend listing them??? I have thought of ebay and Mascus. Tried an item on arbtrader on here and it didn't even get any views. Any ideas warmly received.

    My friend has a Krapan for sale but it is nearly brand new and is a lot of money.
  8. As the manufacturers make them for specific vehicles there will be differences to length and width I would have thought.
  9. There has been a company upgrading them to 3.5 tons for quite some time. Apparently it has been Toyota GB who have not been willing to plate them at 3.5 ton
  10. £110 for loose cubic metre load and £130 for 1.2
  11. Could you not bundle say twelve together and burn in stove like that, maybe last longer???
  12. I recently applied for a FC job and found it very difficult to describe how I demonstrated a particular behaviour using only 250 words. I felt by the time I thinned my example out, it lost a lot of it's impact. Some points were also a bit mystifying - "you must have one of the following: chainsaw certificate, ATV certificate......" Describe how you have the above - in 250 words!! Bar explaining you attended a course, passed the final assessment and gained the certificate, what more could you say. The feedback I got was that my applicaton was scored a 4 on a scale of 0 to 7 where 7 is the best; 4 was deemed acceptable.
  13. I'm sure he will find any insurance company wants to be informed of modifications either inside or outside of the vehicle. The easiest way to think of it, is did the vehicle come from the manufacturer like this?
  14. Thanks for the replies guys - I totally understand its not the dogs fault so don't want to cause it any harm. As for catching it etc, I'm not staying up all night on the off chance it comes and I can catch it. I will try the citrus and creosote mixture. I did use cayenne pepper in a water solution but that had no effect.
  15. My front garden and driveway is open and for about the last four months a dog has been fouling on two gravel areas and a border right in front of the door!!! Usually happens overnight and about four times a week. Been nothing for about three weeks and then he's been back last two nights. I have tried - cayenne pepper, branches off rose bushes and thorn trees, variuos pepper sprays and granules, plastic mats with plastic pins sticking up and senses that emit a high pitched sounds only audible to dogs. None of it has stopped it - even sits and craps a foot infront of the sensors!!! I know it's not a dog from our street, there are flats and houses out the back and I'm sure somebody is just letting it out at night by itself. One of the main reasons I have not got a dog even though I love them is I cannot stand dog poo!! And when I come out the house and see it it makes me seeth!!! I've just put mouse traps out with cheese on tonight!! Has anybody got any ideas that work?????
