    Anyone have a rough idea on the cost of this? Would need maybe 1000m2 for a month?

    We had Davis Track hire put down an aluminium panel track way us for 1200m2 (400m x 3m) approximately 60 miles from their depot.
    Track way was in for just under two weeks with full install £6300 + the vat.

    Just to be clear that this was for a job and the cost was put straight onto the client, I could've done a lot more than 1200m2 of reseeding for six grand.

    The boys who do the sewage sludge used to use the aluminium - and had to leave someone on site 24/7 to guard it against light-fingered types.

    Now they use the plastic stuff, very strong too, I had to drive over it with a 3.5t loader with a very full load and it hardly deflected.

    I know not where it comes from, but there must be information in the google machine.

    Try eve or lion they are both very good companies to deal with.

    Both do the plastic mats which are best.

    What about old concrete railway sleepers put down to form a track? When you have finished they would lift easily. I have no idea on cost, however the dairy lads use them alot for cow tracks.

    Bog mats , £ 10 per week per 1.2x2.5m sheets , only really work well in a straight line

    We have a yard full of concrete railway sleepers, they work well but need laying properly. They're a bit thick too - you can't drive on and off them all the time. Haulage is a killer too at 4 to the ton.

    We have a straw stack on a field, we get a load or two out every time theres a frost but just wondered about a big square of matting to turn trucks round on etc. Think we'll just carry on as we are.

    I'd also like to try a JCB Hydradig, might be more usefull as easily moved and with the 360 wouldn't need to move as much, but not sure what they're like on wet sticky clay.

    hydradigs are not too bad in the clay provided the cleats stay relatively clean.
    Better than a conventional rubber duck
