    Mercedes Unimog U1650 AV Intercooler, very rare RHD (most are LHD) Lovely condition Unimog U1650 , has a very full spec with lots of kit on it. Included is a 14" Jensen PTO driven chipper. Come straight from railway work so very strictly maintained. Depending on your application, we could remove the railway kit from this and add off road tyres & rims. We have costs for this if of interest. The U1650 has the more powerful engine, also the longer body too which gives you the larger box on the rear.

  3. Hello! So I've got three quotes for a chipbox build on my 3.5t Ford transit tipper. All in the region of £4-5k plus VAT for the basic body, plus extras. The headache, apart from the ££££££, is about which material to go for: aluminium plank, and/or GRP / fibreglass coated plywood. It's my first chipbox build, so would love to hear your views. The two main considerations I can think of are weight and durability. One guy only works with aluminium boards, and says he's never had any justifiable complaints about durability. No mention of lining any of it with ply. Another (Tipmaster) says aluminium planks are prone to tearing on impact or if caught with a saw (we do a lot of cutting down on the back). He recommends lining the aluminium sheet headboard with wisa deck (ply), and making the sides in GRP (fibreglass coated marine ply). He says GRP is much easier to repair and replace. He could also build it in ally plank for about the same price. The third guy has quoted for both options, but won't make a recommendation as to which is best. Any advice very gratefully received! Luke
  4. Last summer I picked up a stock Hilux MK5 2004 with 72k miles for £6,000 which I thought was a bargain. A year on, after mods and a chip box I built, here she is.
  5. Afternoon Ladies, Just had a chip box made of of aluminium, and I need to line it. I would usually do it with something like marine ply, but thought the weight would be a bit counter productive. Was thinking of maybe doing it in GRP. I've never used GRP. Would it be a good idea with saving weight but protecting the aluminium. Or are there other materials I should be looking at. I was thinking of the bash plate (for the flying chips) to be 1mm steel, or would GRP be good. Your thoughts are always appreciated.
