    Land rover led indicators

    Yes we had problems and went back to normal lights on our Defender tipper,as i remember it was somthing to do with running the non led repeaters with the new led lights and the green flasher bulb in the instrument panel ....they dont work together... i do belive you can get the parts needed from Paddocks Good luck with that one

    7.5 tonne truck o licence?

    Thank you very much for taking the time to explain things,I will now go ahead and take a good look at the truck and if its worth the money i will buy it, Guess i can tax and insure it to get it home , without loading it should be legal.

    7.5 tonne truck o licence?

    Hi All, Anyone know if i would need a o licence to use a 7.5T gross tipper? Use would be hauling cord from the woods,around 3 miles round trip,Agri use i.e collecting silage bales feed ect and maybe delivery firewood. If so what would i need to do to get one? The truck is not agri registered just normal road use. Thanks in advance..

    Auto Return Splitter

    Well im running off a 82hp Tractor with good pressure and flow rate,so the splitter is flying up and down but a bit low on strenth with the harder stuff,i was just thinking the return valve would maybe make it a bit better as i could set it for the lengh of logs to be split and speed things up a bit,must be somthing out there?

    Auto Return Splitter

    Well there some big old lumps, whole trunks take to much time getting them on there,and would have to be some Processor, chainsaw and split i would have thought.
