  1. On bare metal and chassis, I use owatrol oil as a primer with enamel paint mixed with owatrol oil on top. Underneath, I would have sprayed it with linseed oil first, let it dry and black waxoil on top.
  2. I would have choosen a Scandinavian style logging winch. I'd recommend looking at a winch with 3-5000 kg capacity. Take a look at Igland, Fransgård and Farmi winches.

  3. One option is to cut it higher up than the fence, make a tongue&groove cut so it'll stay in place. It looks like the trees lean in the right direction so should work. It will rest on the stem and crown, fence intact underneath.
  4. Yes, that is true. Although, it shouldn't be a problem when it comes to documenting what they can actually tow and get them registered with that. The chassi number on US trucks is fairly easy to decode, and the documentation should be more than adequate.
  5. I think that's the same 10 speed that they use in the F150.
  6. My vote goes to the Ranger. But since you're going to be towing 2-3T, I would have looked at US Ford pickups. Ford F150 and F250. Stronger axles, frame, engine and transmission. Many of them has a tow/haul function that changes the gear and engine characteristics. Max torque and braking power.
  7. Most likely in Sept. (Norway). We have 35, 1000 litre pallets filled with firewood ready for winter.
  8. You can't go wrong with a F250 or F350. They are work horses and parts are cheap. When it comes to tyres, I'd recommend BF Goodrich All Terrain or Nokian Rotiiva AT.
  9. We have a Ford E350 Superduty with the 6.0L powerstroke engine. Can carry close to 1500 kgs, and 4400 kg on the hook. Pretty much every US truck and van has built in electronic brake controller or wiring harness for it.
  10. I found this at a Swedish site: "Metro in Stockholm After a VERY tiring day, a female commuter sits down quietly on the seat, closing her eyes and trying to get a nap. When the train rolls out of the station, the guy sitting next to her picks up his phone, and starts talking with a loud voice. - Hello, honey, Erik here. I am on the train - Yes, yes, the clock is half past seven and not half 5, but I had a long meeting ... No, not with the blonde from the Treasury, it was the boss - No darling you are the only one in my life, yes darling, of course I swear you are the only one in my life. Fifteen minutes later, he still sits and talks loudly while he commits his love. Now the female commuter has had enough, she leans towards him and says near the phone. - Eric! Get off the phone and come back to bed, it's cold here. Eric doesn't use his mobile phone anymore."
  11. That's spot on. Mewp are required to have two connection points (can have more, depending on the carrying capacity of the machine) that you connect a lanyard to. The goal is to keep the person(s) in the basket and prevent them from being launched out of it.
