Well I've gone with 2 cause being tall it looks like there's a bit more head room + the side windows are taller. Shame they hadn't raised the rear canvas to match!

Point taken, I wouldn't use it for a routine tire change but surely there is a lot of other uses, I see some of you have them attached to your trucks, I guess they are not just for show!!!

Hi-Lift Jack

Just got a hi-lift for my birthday, wondering where you can jack a pinz, guessing the front bumper is fine, probably need the adapter for tubular bumpers for the rear. Any advise or tips welcome... anyone used one as a hand winch etc.

Thanks in advance :lol:

The stuff I used was Comma EP90 GL5 Mineral oil from what I can gather from the internet VMX80 is part synthetic.

Is the oil you used synthetic or mineral? On best advise when I replaced mine used mineral oil designed for "older" vehicles, I've not had any problems.

To Hel and Back

Well I just thought I'd share my "big trip" plans... Scotland to Belgium by ferry, driving through Belgium, The Netherlands and through Germany to Poland, exploring Poland for a week (including a visit to Hel in the north!) then return. Hope to find some tracks and wee lanes to explore along the way...

The light camper is exactly what I'm doing with my 710k. First I decided to go for more of a tent on wheels, rather than mobile home. Also I want to be able to put it all back as original to sell (if that ever happens). I'll soon update my website with the modifications (http://www.bagstraining.co.u...

Yes I've seen the kids book "Cars n Trucks and Things that Go" and agree it looks like a haf!
Military Machines International July has a four page spread on the Haf, my friend Dale from Haflinger Technick Ltd in Scotland has identified all the owners (including himself) at a European Treffen.
