  1. ifor williams with 76mm coupling eye

    chatting to one of the engineers in work and thinking of fitting a tilt switch to the control system. If exceeded it will kill power to remote and open return flow solenoid for ram.
  2. ifor williams with 76mm coupling eye

    was thinking that also, if they really want it theres not much i can do . Im.not sure how much extra the coupling eye would be. I see a bradley one is 400 pounds. If it is 400 extra ill just forget about it. Spend it on a good tracker as you say good to know about the banging coming from slider plate. if i was to do it i would.leave it in a fixed position (no slider) thanks for replies guys. off to look up that 3 way tipper
  3. hi folks, just looking for opinions. Hopefully getting my brand spanking new ifor tipper soon and of course my mind is going into overdrive to secure it from theft. One of the ideas i was thinking about, ifor offer a 76mm coupling eye for the Nato hitches. What do yous reckon. Would it be a good idea going for it or would it just be banging away while towing and drive me scathy. Suppose it would still slip over a 50mm towing ball hitch but would also a pity as i wouldnt be able to lend it out .
  4. Hi, from memory D2 are 4" inches wider and better turning circle, diffs are same as defender and steering im not sure about havent got that far in my build but reckon i will have to use disco box
  5. mach5 wheel mod

    sorry guys was away for a bit, hmm a lot to take in and consider. I agree its silly their is a differance between beadlock and split rim. To me they both seem the same. I might get a standard set of wheels and use them for the test.
  6. mach5 wheel mod

  7. mach5 wheel mod

    supposdly they have to have an E mark to be road legal. Pity i cant find an email for matt lee and get a definitive answer from him.
  8. mach5 wheel mod

    Hi Mike, From reading on forums most replies were saying only the non-beadlocker were road legal, mach5 beadlockers for off road use only. I tried to see could i contact Matt to ask him the question but couldn't find an email address. Heres a pic of the wheels in question.
  9. mach5 wheel mod

    hi Folks, looking for your opinions. I have a set of genuine mach5 beadlockers. As they are beadlockers they arent road legal. I would love to have them on my truck. I was thinking what if i bolted the beadlock ont the wheel and then welded it on. Obviously a proper job coded welder and all that. What do yous reckon. shane

  12. Toylander forum search

    That's why I'd like to go sheet metal as I'm sure with all their other toys will just be left outside and its pretty wet and damp here 12 months of the year
  13. Toylander forum search

    Oh that's a handy tip for future searches, thanks LRF Think I found that one but did he not make that out of mdf, will look again noooooooo, bloody typical, I want to make one now and would like to make out of sheet metal, I remember in the thread it was very well thought out and I didn't want to re-invent the wheel lol. Thanks for all the replies guys
  14. Toylander forum search

    Hi guys, trying to find thread where someone stuck up info about their mate building a Toylander. He was using a ride on mower for engine and chassis and building it all out of sheet metal and box. Was a pretty comprehensive picture build. I'm not sure if it was on here or landyzone, plus I don't think they mentioned Toylander something like mini defender or mini landrover. I'm getting sick of searching at this point. Have searched all the heading I could think of. If anyone can help or rings a bell would be great, thanks shane
