    Safe loads

    The OP is my brothers pickup. Stopped by traffic police at willerby near hull. £100 fine dished out and a telling off. However on been told he needed the bag strapped down my brother asked if it also needed a cargo nett over the top to be told that wasnt necessary just a strap to hold it in place as in the event of a accident it would hold the bag in the back of the truck. Our kid didnt bother pointing out that a strap would hold the bag in but the logs would probably still leave. Think he was more worried about them noticing the brake light he had out. The trailer was all fine. Caged ifor with a cube loose in the bottom and two bags sat on top of it. Neither bag protruding the cages was acceptable. They wouldnt let him leave till he either strapped it down or emptied the bag down to below the sides of the pickup. So he filled the passenger sea footwell and the back seats up with logs and was on his way. Lesson learnt straps now been used. Might even buy a cargo net.

How much your putting through yours how much it costs to run ie is a log one better than a woodchip one and rhi payment received. Looking at one just wanted some feedback really. Oh and who is best to get to install one. Cheers

    Alternative to Merit turf

    Nothing at all on market for leather jackets apart from one agg spray but its nasty definatly not for a garden. Google nematodes there a organic solution but soil temps need to be around 10 degrees. We have a lawn with a serious leather jacket problem and i spent a while re searching this last week
