    More money isn't always the answer - so how do you attract staff to work for you

    We all need them, we all want them to work for us. Huge amount of choice for anyone looking for a job with stock or land work. So what works for you - money is not a motivator. Joss Haynes, HAAC, 1980's. Please share your success stories, as majority of us are very poor man managers😉

    Inspire me

    The time has come for me to look at changing my truck. Currently have a 60plate hilux which does the job but is getting long in the tooth now. The natural choice would be a new hilux but I must say I'm not overly inspired by it. The problem is any other pickup is always going to fall short of...

    Ineos Grenadier and Land Rover Defender

    Had a chance to look around both of these at the Festival of Speed at Goodwood last week. Is there anyone on here running the LR yet? And anyone tempted by the Grenadier when it becomes available next year?

    New truck. Going round in circles

    Got a nearly 6 year old dmax. Bought me and Been absolutely faultless. Never had a spanner on it. It's now done 140k miles of hard work (which I actually think has done it good, better than one that's not been worked anyway) so thinking it's time for a refresh. A year ago we bought an iveco...

    Secondhand Toyota Landcruiser buying.

    Been looking at Landcruisers to replace a TD5 Disco who’s chassis is having to be welded up again. Swayed towards a 100 series 4.2 diesel owing to its higher 3.5 ton towing capacity, are these a good buy and is there anything to be careful of, mindful these are now approaching 20 years old?

    New Defender Commercial

    Am I missing something? I’ve specced a Defender commercial S with the stuff you really want in a car, and to match the spec of a Wildtrack Ranger. Tow bar, metallic paint, mudflaps, 3 seats in the front, alloy wheels. And that’s about it, not gone too mad with it. It’s come out at £62,000+VAT...
