  1. if all else fails back in at right angles to the mast with a tractor pull it with a chain hung high on the mast and tip it sideways dont worry you wont tip it over its CG is very low pack and make good terrain Let us know how you go on
  2. Looking at pictures virtually any tele handler woulds sort that out working a right angle to rear towing eye. Personal it would i suspect weigh more than 5 ton near 7.5 . But i dont know. what ever all is not lossed if all fails a medium sized tractor with rear lift arms and a decent chain with with shorten claw a bit at a time would turn it through 90 ndegrees then it just a straight forward pull. Ps my estimate on weight is based on a three. five ton hyster we ran over a weigh bridge and weighed 7.3 tons another tip i was given many many years ago was you will never raise a vehicle by digging a hole to put ii in

  7. I think the contention in this post is caused by the title " Fined for driving 25mph on an A roads "They were not. They were fined for careless driving with out due care and consideration to other road users and quite rightly so i think. People also think this is a new thing i can think of at least 3 other occasions when prosecutions have been brought under similar legislation local to were i live. One i know of very well was an old couple who used to live on the farm where i now live. Every sat morning they would go into the local town a distance of 12 miles shopping they never used to get out of fast tick over in 2nd gear in a ford classic. At that time the A63 was the main trunk road and it used to cause mayhem. After being stopped advised and cautioned many times the case was sent to Beverly magistrates who imposed an endorsement and 21s fine. This was enough to convince them they were now too old and past it to run the small holding and they retired.
  8. Despite what all may think they are not British yet nor likely to be for at least another 2 years. How long after that it takes for officialdom to turn back the clock rules regs i dread to think.

  10. i have from been told from a friend of a friend that knows some one that heard a farmer has found a chain link and a scrap of aluminium buried in the hillside above the tunnel. They have come to a deal with RAF Cosford for an undisclosed amount to unearth the last ever dornier 17 that was escorting the train.

  14. if you are simply trying to avoid MOT Plating and test to ride about going to shows No there is no way you can do it. Full stop but I suspect you already knew that And as somebody has said why would you not want to subject it to a ministry test if it was in good order

  22. when the m62 motorway was been built in our part of the world we had two Swedish guys who lodged in my parents pub. They were doing piling for a Swedish company called Balken piling. When there company had quoted for the job from british engineers all measurements had been in mm. they arrived here and asked for the measurements in feet and inches as that is was then used in Sweden. Things were not going right for these guys and we all sat down with these guys to see if we could help. we got out our 16 ft retractable tape measures along side theirs and spot on same as theirs. Then some one spotted they only had ten inches to the foot Feet were spot on True I swear
