    Pickup speed limits

    I was involved with a discussion on another forum this week, where folk had been hit with speeding tickets where the vehicle they were in had a lower speed limit than that for say, a car. My understanding is that the new clever cameras on the motorways have software that will check the...

    3litre or 2.5 litre toyota hilux?

    I have a vehicle which is not really suitable for pulling our 12 ft cattle box with finished bullocks in when selling them, as does not have enough pulling power (a large panel van). I am presuming something like a toyota Hilux would be a far better bet? I have a 10 year old one in mind. It is a...

    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?

    Ford Ranger Question

    I am thinking of buying a 2016 Ranger 2.2 tdci. I have been reading up on common faults and came across the oil pump failure. My question is what year does this effect? Is it older models or would this be a likely issue for a 2016 model. Thanks

    Sheep breeds why?

    Thinking about Neilo's post on another thread where he was describing his experience with Exlanas. Why do some people swear by some breeds and others swear at them. Is it different farms, systems, etc enough to explain it? For example I read a lot of positives about Lleyns and bought 50 from...

    Do you have small run about or compact tractor?I

    I suppose the quad bike & mule type atv's have taken the place of the small "knocking" about tractor. Do any of you have a small tractor perhaps with transport box loaded with fencing material or compact tractor mowing the lawn. If so what do you have & what do you use it for? I feel a bit...

    2.8 litre Hilux auto or manual

    I've always had manuals in the past but tried an automatic Hilux and was very impressed. Very smooth and nice to drive on the road. Is anyone running a 2.8 litre auto Hilux? How are they for towing? I don't do loads of towing, but still need something that is capable.
