  1. Goods not fit for purpose under the sale of goods act, it's pretty simple. If they don't want to refund then issue county court proceedings. They are only allowed to repair if you let them, once you do that it isn't so easy to get a refund.
  2. It's a bit specialist, every Tom, Dick and Harry hires out diggers, that's why they are cheap, I would think it's got to be at least around £130ish a day.
  3. Haha would he even fit in one
  4. Same here, the only reason I am still using the 130 landy is there is nothing else with a 7000kg train weight. I was hoping when the V6 Amorok came out it was going to be near that but instead they made it less. The only truck that I can find that comes close is the 4x4 Iveco but it's truck payload is not as good as the Landy, I was going to order one but the dealer couldn't get a demo vehicle, and at the price it was I wasn't prepared to take a chance that I would like it.
  5. The Amorok has the lowest legal towing capacity out there in the 4x4 truck market. Stupidly the V6 has lower towing capacity that the lower powered version.
  6. The old one was Merc based, this new one isn't, I believe it's their own. I was going to demo one but the dealer won't fit a towbar to the demo truck, that speaks volumes for me. Also been warned about the price of parts.
  7. 3500kg is only with the auto, also read a review somewhere and it wasn't rated that great a tow truck but was very juicy towing, iirc it averaged 18mpg and that was with only 2800kg behind it. It isn't as fugly as the previous version but it isn't far short.
  8. If it's only 40 tons make up a frame from 4x4 fence posts, if you do it right you need 8 posts 8 foot long, 2 sheets of ply, 5 lenths cls timber and 2 of 1"x1" 10 gauge mesh sheets from FH brundle, costs about £200 and will last years, we have thrown hundereds of ton over similar before we went over to the proper screeners, I will see if I still have some photos. We hire out screeners but the cost wouldn't be viable for 40 ton.
  9. Very How dare you expect decent money.
  10. In all seriousness, Bill should know by now mate so I know it will be fine. Really must call in and see him some time, seems i'm always in a mad rush when i'm out that way
  11. Little and none ? I shall arrange a public flogging
  12. In fairness to him, we don't know why he cancelled, but he did have the decency to let you know, an awfull lot of people can't even be arsed to do that now days. At least you are sorted now, saying that have you seen Billy's turf laying
  13. Oh god no, if Bill is doing it you better order twice as many turf Give the old boy my regards, top man is Billy.
  14. Eggs I have only just seen this. I have to appologise mate, I didn't realise it was you, I heard you say from Arbtalk but not who you were. I'm going to guess it was Matt B who cancelled ? If you want to do it yourself I am happy to run them over for you. Laying turf is a doddle, getting the ground ready is the worst part.
  15. Only bought the impact wrench because i'm bloody sick and tired of trying to be a contortionist every time I have to change the meshes on the screener. It's turned a 2.5 - 3 hour job into a 30 - 40 minute job.
