If the pallet is 2300 wide - then you'll probably find that they're charging you for taking up almost two pallets worth of floor space on the wagon. And if it's a long journey, then you'll be taking u ...

Tricky without knowing the weight of the unit AND the dimensions. The 9000lb referred to is likely to be the max weight the trailer can run at - which is just over 4 tonnes. That doesn't mean of cours ...

I don't think many of us would want to use a chain flail in a flexi liner - they would be used more often in clay lined flues with heavy deposits.

There is gear on the market for powersweeping flex ...

Hi all,

It's a good time to be thinking about winter fuel if you haven't done so already, and our UK made firewood briquettes are still being offered at the same price as last year. 310 will get y ...
