Re: Vacum slab lifter

I've got an al-vac handy. Honda engined vacuum lifter. The unit itself can lift 1000kg, but the foot I have for it if for heavy kerbs and big slabs and is rated at 350kg.
Amazing bit of kit.

Re: Concreting

I use an MBW Screedemon for concrete screeding. Placed and screeded 35m3 last week with it. Very handy tool, I have 1m, 2m and 3m beams for it.

Re: which Plasma cutter

Hobyweld works for me as well. Ultra cylinder, 6m3 I think, usually lasts me a year. £55ish a refill. That's pure argon for tig. Deposit on bottle and refill cost only.

Re: Is this the future?

I've seen a Universal income mentioned when talking about an increasingly automated society, but haven't bothered to look into it or pay much attention to it, not going to happen any time soon.

I think a self loading pan mixer on the front of a tele-handler is the best setup, can put it anywhere when batching then put it over trenches or shutter to empty, and digger can be digging or...

Re: Mixer drums

what do the inside of them look like?
HSS cleaning fee probably covers buying a new drum, 2 minutes labour to change over rather chipping out.

Re: Here we go again - Takeuchi TB175.

I've helped pour a few house founds with a 3/4 cube pan on an old manitou telehandler.
5 bags cement per batch. How much is a bag of cement down country?

Re: Duckling

That'll be the one I saw on a low loader at the kessock bridge the other week then. Doubt I'll be able to find an excuse to hire one any time soon tho, as much as I'd like a shot.

Re: wanted lathe

That's quite a capable little lathe.
Have watched a lot of vids on YouTube, a guy named "Doulbleboost" used to have a lathe the same or very similar, and could turn out nice looking parts.
