"My Indespension, 8x5, twin axle, with ramp has served me 17 years(with one new floor) of constant use for plant, arisings and aggregates. If you don't want to put equipment on it, consider a tipping facility."
"I have a 8x4 braked Ifor Williams with full mesh sides. You would be amazed how much you can fit in in, cover the top in tarp and strap it down. Had mine for about 10 years +, brilliant trailer I bought new. Looking for another similar this year.…"
"I've got the 6x4 IWT with mesh sides and it's perfect. Holds about a week's waste, so it's cost-effective at the tip. Just keep it secure.
With hindsight the 4-wheeled would be worth the extra, a puncture on my 2-wheel is a pain.…"

Is this enough for my needs? Else will have to do trailer test too.Thanks folks, hope you're…See More

"I've always found plywood strips bend fairly easily without "kerfing".... asits only a temporary measure, use thinner ply which will bend more easily however I'd reckon it would be better to just put the job on hold until the…"
HiI'm building a gravel path for a customer and the initial plan was to use brick/stone for the edging. The customer then asked if I could make a temporary edge with wood until he finds the stone he wants to use.The path will be curved, and in a couple of places tightly curved.

It basically means sawing 1cm through 2.5cm thick wood, at regular intervals to give the…See More
