    Woodchip is in local chipboard/MDF factory, on a massive scale, and it’s ended because they’ve built storage silos so wagons tip and it gets conveyed into the silo then straight into factory.....or at least that’s the theory, as for fire it’s used that quick generally it doesn’t seem a issue, I...

    @Cab-over Pete Pete great thread I’ve only just stumbled across, my only advice is keep on top of engine oil changes between 200-250hrs, the C9 heui pump loves regular oil changes otherwise expect big bills for a pump & injectors, it will drink a fair drop of engine oil but don’t worry all c9’s...
