    New Hilux Review

    That’s pretty poor Kev, on Toyotas part to say the least, I’ve only had the pleasure of using them once a few years back on a recall issue so naturally asked for a courtesy vehicle and like you tried to give me a car, ask the manager for a truck so I could at least go to work but got the response of”well a courtesy vehicle is our courtesy to you and we don’t do like for like “ so all I could do at the time was go in on a Saturday morning and wait for it to be done.

    A Very Lucky Guy

    Still unsure on what he did. Was he just back cutting the top out causing it to rip? But looking at his rope and the trunk it looks as if the tree buckled and pinched his rope? I dunno [emoji848]

    Fings wot broke

    I’ve had my little TW125 for just over 8yrs now but the machine is 16yrs old now. Perfect for what I need it for just requires a little tlc from time to time. So I’m guessing micks crack is just a one off thing? I see most companies are using the Forst chipper’s these days so they must be doing something right

    Hope you get it sorted Mick, is it a common fault or are you just unlucky with your machine?
