I don't do sweeping up, there's half an acre for it to get lost in. I just want to have a go myself that way it should be done to my satisfaction and there are bits I don't want done which I can trust myself to leave. Taking it to bits is not really an option as a lot of it is really heavy duty stuff, either quarter or half inch steel plate. The whole thing weighs between 5.5 and 8.5 tons depending on whether it is fully ballasted and I suspect it may be at least partly. Haven't had chance to look underneath yet. I may take you up on those bags of media but it certainly won't be until the spring. Too cold out there,brrrrrrrr. Cheers dave.

Well I thought it was, I'd better check as it is only 240 volt. Wouldn't be the first mistake I've made

Lots of people have had cracks in the stainless models but they can be repaired successfully. You just need to keep an eye on the problem areas, I haven't had to much trouble myself but others will tell you where to keep an eye out.

I think self centre is down to castor. Mine is not good on my car and I am minded to have a tinker with it to see if I can improve it.

I'd go along with richy666 on buying a car that is already registered. Thats what I did and I have found plenty to keep me occupied over the last few years. There is always something that you want to change and plenty that needs changing and if you are like me there's a lot to learn. I still don't think I'd want to take on a total build, mainly due to all the fiddling around getting angles and measurements right for the test but another registered car I would do in a heartbeat if it was what I wanted. No more room in the carpenter garage at the moment although I am off to Nottingham today to look at another tractor but I have promised the wife something will have to go if I buy it. Not the kit though, no way.
