  1. I think it depends a lot on how you use the vehicle. Whilst a farmer is splashing about in stuff all day potentially they’re not likely to be up to the axles/chassis in mud. Even in the relatively short number of miles I did in the 90 before it came off the road I was fed up of the handbrake either binding or just not working as soon as it was wet or muddy. The Xbrake locks it solid even straight after wading or deep mud, doesn’t need constant attention and it weighs a lot less than the drum setup.
  2. Depending how big they are, I'm regularly doing Oxfordshire to Taunton/Ilminster if that helps.

  4. I’m planning on removing mine but building it back up underneath. Pending gearbox clearance!
  5. This, and the quality of the fuel. SimonR did some calcs a few years back on the various vehicles he had and the benefits of branded vs. supermarket fuel. IIRC, even a few pence a litre extra was worth it for the non supermarket fuel.
  6. I find the same with my two Dewalt, the cordless one is much better balanced with a 5ah pack on it than the corded. Fat nicer to use one handed.
  7. Christmas come early by the looks of that grin!
  8. I keep meaning to get some outside 90deg ones. Been a few occasions where I’ve struggled with (or just can’t) use the conventional type ones.
  9. They can be a bit of a drinker Tim. Parents old '51 plate D2 manual used to get 25 at best on a run and 18-20 at best towing the caravan.
  10. I know a few people with more expensive drivers cars that enjoy throwing their STs around.
  11. Meaning I don’t have any of the c grip types only the normal plier type ones. So hopefully the quality of those is indicative of each brand’s c grip quality.
  12. I’m guessing that experience will translate to the c grips!
  13. To add to that, if you chaps could make one work well... then get on it! There must be a good supply of TDV6 and 8 engines from crash damaged cars that aren't viable to repair.
