Things are changing over there. I was amazed how they carried on when I first went there in 1998. I have an uncle who lives in San Francisco and only about 5 years ago said surprised "I've never seen anyone crushing concrete before" (He's not in construction and lived there for 30 years but its an indicator of how things have changed more recently.)[/quo

So how do you tell a Reiver from a Mastiff (not a riddle :D )

Hi Pete,
Could easily be a Reiver.
You'd know instantly if you could hear it, the Mastiff would have the unmistakable note of the Perkins V8.

Visually the Reiver has the air cleaner behind the cab and fuel tank on the offside.The Super Mastiff has the header tank behind the cab off side and the fuel tank nearside.

The common names for these beasts were Mastic and Weaver, I hope this helps some.
