Project Zetros

Not shiny any more. Spreading Fibrophos on a misty and humid morning soon gets a machine rimed with dust and crud.

My guesses are:
Van only appears to be secured by straps on the front wheels
Insecure loader due to the use of straps instead of chains and not positioned to adequately secure the loader in the event of the trailer tipping over.
May require C1E or CE licence category depending on how the towing vehicle is registered.
Not referred to in the tweet, but carrying the van probably ought to be done on white diesel.

Straps are legal if done correctly.
You're supposed to secure the load to 100% of the eight to the front, 50% to each sides and rear. That forklift weighs about 6t?
To stop the machine moving forwards, they've used one 10t strap through the pickup hitch, effectively making it a 5t strap. So not legal for that reason, in my opinion.

Also appears to be various blocks of wood / oil cans, maybe even a spare wheel unsecured?
