    No need for a trailer test anymore?

    I don't think it was that they were deemed more competent but that towing trailers at the 3.5 ton limit became a lot more common. How many were towing 3.5 ton regularly and with a vehicle capable of getting it to the speed limit never mind over it prior to 1990?

    No need for a trailer test anymore?

    No I just don't think people realised there had been a change. Did you not automatically get car and trailer when you were over 21 provided you had a car licence before 1997 at the time?

    No need for a trailer test anymore?

    You would think that but as yet no date announced. If they didn't change law until dec for example how many people could that affect?

    No need for a trailer test anymore?

    You're not legal yet law hasn't changed yet and no announcement on exactly when only says later in 2021. The only change so far is no car and trailer tests after 20th sept.

    No need for a trailer test anymore?

    Provided you passed first time test was £60 (may have gone up that was about 12 year ago). Didn't need to pay for training you could learn what you needed to know for reversing manoeuvres etc online. Tbh I'm surprised they haven't dropped the test but kept compulsory training instead which could...

    Uneven chassis?

    Believe me jcb and tolerances means "we don't care". Old fella years ago had a brand new 3cx which either braked on left side right side or both but you never knew which was deadly on the road. Numerous visits back to dealer and back to jcb factory and they wouldn't change any parts as...

    Front end loader query

    For actually picking stuff up and moving it around a loadall is far superior (its what they are designed to do) but they are much heavier on the ground. For in field work a tractor is so much kinder on the soil it more than makes up for any shortcomings there may be.

    Tractor servicing costs

    Always annoys me that one when the labour rate is £££ to begin with, surely it should cover disposable gloves and a few wipes.

    Are extended warranties a con

    I don't wish to throw a spanner on the works but anyway.......... The original idea behind warranties (12 months) was that any faulty/sub standard part or anything not correctly put together would fail during the first 12 months and be rectified at manufacturers cost. As machines have in theory...

    Cordless angle Grinder

    Don't use spanner to tighten discs on 4 1/2 grinder and you'll be able to undo by hand anyway, can't see point in fancy lock systems.

    What RHI payment will I get ?

    Building regulations are a minimum standard, Passiv House goes way beyond and costs significantly more. There are some private builds which are built to a high standard and may not require much extra to upgrade to passiv but the majority would need significant extra cost.

    What RHI payment will I get ?

    A lot higher build cost though which many people will not be able to afford at the time.

    Project Zetros

    Most led lights are 12 to 24 volt (in fact i bet there's very few aren't) so unless there's more complicated electrics than lights on the trailer get them changed.

    Brakes failed or didn't work? How well maintained is a trailer which on the pics appears to have holes in the floor?

    Best 12 ton grain trailer to buy?

    To be fair to marshall for a long time for a cheap lightweight trailer you couldn't really complain other than the paint, but even then plenty others were as bad. Realistically they weren't designing a heavy use trailer. Times move on and prices go up and maybe they didn't buck their ideas up...
