  1. Jeeeez. I'll just buy a power pack and not bother! Was a nice idea though!
  2. Has anyone fitted a belt drive hydraulic pump to their truck? We have a log splitter. Thinking about mounting it ti my pickup, using the engine to run the pump. Possible?
  3. Thinking about building a tipper back for my D22 single cab. Not bad with a stick wilder. Any plans available?
  4. Hi Judith, I maybe interested in taking on your project. Where about's in Cornwall are you? You can call me on 07815523738 - Thanks, Edward.
  5. I have a D22 single cab. Seen a Mazda B2500 truckman style canopy for sale. Are the beds standard sizes? I had a ifor williams on my D21 years again that was fairly generic.
  6. Thats helpful, thanks
  7. Ive been offered a DCS520 for £175, should I go for it?
  8. Hi, I've been offered a DCS520 for £175... Should I go for it? No experience with Makita saws.
  9. Jake. Actually excellent at keeping the van safe when working in dodgy areas... Other duties included running lengths of perimeter tape out... and woo'ing young ladies.
  10. Mountain Ash you say, we'll do that on the way to the job... will take half an hour, tops... OHHH!
  11. Decelerating gently while lowering is a skill us climbers appreciate. Nicely done
  12. Can be quite dramatic. Best case is it ran out of oil to burn as fuel and stopped running, before the engine cooked itself too much. You can pop a new turbo on it and you could be all good. Its a gamble I guess. It is important to use the correct oil. Cheap oil for non turbo engines doesn't lubricate the floating bearings in the turbo properly and they break.
  13. Our Iveco tipper broke off. Rust-tastic. What do we think? Worth fixing? Truck is pretty old and tatty but a good work horse... What should we expect to pay for it to be welded back together? See pics Cheers
