  1. We hire in a nifty 17.5 almost weekly there best of both easy to tow, light and no need for a trailer and you can walk them into tight spots, 17.5m seems to do most of what we need, two hire shops within 10mins have them so normally i can get one there sturdy at full reach too, we looked at buying one but we can hire for £150 a day or £250 a week, the second hand ones were around 15k and complete dogs of machines, brand new about 27k but I did't fancy the maintenance commitment. One thing I have noticed about locals who have mewps is they seem to take them to every job which is a nice idea but can't help think sometimes there taking them just for the sake of it, doing dismantles with a mewp is a awkward, James x
  2. There savage near bury st edmunds Rumour has it there is a way in motion sensor on the A14 I got a through shafting at Birchhanger services once for towing a digger with no Tacho in my Ranger
  3. You’d need to plum a direct to tank in off the 4in 1 which is no big job, I run a old Massey digger which is like a 3cx, good yard Machines I wouldn’t want to rely on it to make a wage, finds. A new place to leak hydraulic from everyday
  4. Yep I agree with all of the above as the main contractor you make the big bucks to allow for the cock ups the Subby is probably making a wage and not a lot more hardly seems fair to lay it on him,
