    Flashing beacons

    Plenty idiots, no denying that. Its the led ones I've the issue with. Old fashioned ones weren't a problem. Anyway my opinion is as irrelevant as it's possible to be so no point worrying about it

    Flashing beacons

    Is blinding everyone with blue leds actually necessary to achieve that? All I said was they are too bright. Not that they should switch them off

    Flashing beacons

    Worst lights I've ever seen are on ambulances this past few years fitted with blue led's. In the dark they are seriously dazzling, normally end up seeing blue spots for a few mins after. Not safe imo. Should have a dimmer night setting

    Protech p18+

    Thanks. I've bought a breaker and I think the steel on it looks about 18" so thought I could maybe pilot the post holes on stoney ground then switch to the knocker. My only other option is a tractor knocker but I don't know what they cost. I'm hoping to do my own fencing plus some small bits of...

    Protech p18+

    Thanks very much. I've bought a breaker for the digger to so the fencing I'm doing on rocky ground I can dig the holes by hand.

    Protech p18+

    Thanks. Do you know what size weight you had fitted? Can it handle strainers or is it really just for fence posts?

    Was wondering what these are like. I've a 2.8 ton volvo and thinking I might manage to run one of these postknockers on it. Any one got one? I see there are different weight options and rock spike available. Ta

    Bale wrap tax

    Dropped a trailer load at recycling place a few days ago and it's going straight to landfill, thought it would have it's own pile but just in with the general waste. With the likes of sky news going on about plastic waste all the time I'm surprised bale wrap has not been talked about more...

    California to ban small engines

    Anyone with a business that uses any kind of internal combustion engine can expect their lives to become a misery in the years ahead. The blame for global warming and polution is being put on business and industry NOT on the consumer. The consumer wants its cake and eat it, all the goods they...

    Pumping water to fields

    I have a spring that currently feeds into a water tank, which in turn feeds another tank 100m away. I want to extend this by another 400m but will need to pump it about 5-8m higher than tank at the spring. My plan was to replace the tank at the spring with a 1000l or bigger then I'd like to fit...

    Blame game

    Have had situation before when sitting in Central reservation waiting to turn right and having to wait for following traffic to clear before turning off with the plough. Same turning left, other drivers don't have a clue and end up irate wondering why you don't turn off. Can't really see why...

    The first domino?

    I'd be straight to the bank for cash but I do believe some banks will hardly give you a lot of cash these day unless you have a reason. I think there are now mechanisms in place to allow banks to seize peoples deposits and shares to re capitalise themselves. A bit about it in this article but...

    UK sinking under an ocean of debts?

    US fed rhetoric is becoming more hawkish by the day. 3 rate rises forecast this year, end of bond buying by March and now talking about reducing their balance sheet, in otherwords quantative tightening. Wall Street didn't like this news one bit yesterday. Unfortunately the whole country seems to...
