I'll stick to the rubber duck in the bath thanks :lol:

just wondered if there was any issues with suction on the undercarriage ?

I'm no longer a Doosan man next weeks my last on her :thumbup:

Haha to the duck.

No suction problems that you get with a conventional machine. I think this is due to the buoyancy and smooth sides of the pontoons.

So what's after the Doosan Liam?

Changing the subject really quickly although it does involve low loaders, is everyone watching the new second series of super truckers on a Friday eve i think its on Quest aound 8 - 9pm featuring Kings Heavy Haulage its not a bad watch.

I've been watching Super truckers seems decent enough.

Komatsu next pc170-10 will be mid march before we see her though.

Crikey Liam, scaling up! What's up with the Doosan they look pretty robust and user friendly?

We want the extra lifting power, a 140 sometime isn't man enough with big rings and drag boxes, this one will also have a tilt rotator so i'll be like a pig in shit when it gets here :D

The Doosan is ok but its never truly won me over plus we've had some dealer issues.
