I was then stuck with the issue of what to do with the chip, as a lot of the time you can't get away with chipping on site.
The trouble was a lot of my work needed off road access so a normal transit type tipper was never going to fit the bill. I already ran 2 vehicles as I needed a car as well and just couldn't justify running 3.
So in the end I did the inevitable and brought a landy tipper. This one to be precise:
|The 'old girl' (it was an F reg (1989) after all!|
This was fine, and once I'd put high sides on it served me well. The trouble was it being a standard 110 it was only plated to just over 3 ton, the tipper was off a transit, steel and very heavy. So realistically the payload was pretty pants. That coupled with the complete lack of tool storage, meant I was continually on the look out for a better solution.
Unfortunately Landy tippers are a bit like hens teeth, so you don't have much of a choice and they get snapped up pretty quick when they do become available. So instead I went down the road of having one built to my spec by the guys at The Defender Centre

Just a couple of pics, I plan on doing a full write up once I've used it a bit and fully tested it out. Needless to say first impressions are very good and can't really find fault with the build quality or customer service.
