I guess I'm guilty for going OT, although conversations do that in real life too. Sorry to continue, although I can split the thread if anyone wishes?

Kev, that's an impressive wood shed and I am suitably jealous! My 2050 was only from 1997 so relatively new although struggled a little pulling an 18" bar. A few months before it got pinched I had a lucky find on eBay - a Husky 346XPG advertised simply as 'Husqvarna Chainsaw'. Only used once, and the seller accepted my cheeky offer of the start price! Same capacity but noticeably more power 8) I thought the heated handles would be a gimmick but they help no end with hand circulation in the winter.

Is that related in any way to splitting hairs :lol: :oops: :wink:
but have to say I'm also impressed by everyone's efforts in heavy loads too..

One of the least spoken of merits when discussing the hydro suspension
Last week a friend needed 20 paving slabs - and the person doing the job for her didn't want to use his own car in case it got damaged by the excess weight ! I helped out of course because 'it's designed to carry heavy loads properly - one of the reasons I choose to drive it'. Unlike her friend's Volvo estate then :shock:

What a brilliant thread!

Hows about Windows?

Okay thats probably cheating because they are in a trailer.

Motorbike?

Image

Working fish tank, running from a 230v inverter?

Image

Couple of boats?

Image

My record for boats on the roof of the BX is actually 7 (with 4 kayakers in the car). It was partly accidental as we bought a boat on the way to a river. No picture unfortunately



The single biggest thing i've had in the boot is probably an 8'x4' 12mm marine ply board. Although 'in the boot' might be a stretch as 2' where sticking out the back i might add that this was off public highway and we where being lazy.


Heaviest thing i've dragged was a 3.5tonne trailer, on an air field, with the 1.9td engine. Got it up to 70mph though.

I always thought they were pods of 'Bodysnatchers'. So they are only canoes. I must tell David Ike. Impressive stuff. I am clearly getting old as my boot is not containing either quantity or variety it needs to. My chum reminds, how about a Church worth of soft wood parquet floor blocks. Not heavy as such but very little room left other than driving space. The stinger is I never used them and they sit in a shed on two pallets.
