Footsore First mods installed. Have fitted tailgate central locking from Eagle4x4. Cable was long enough and installation fine, took circa 2.5hours though but I like a neat job.

Also fitted tailgate assist. Took 45minutes and the wife loves it. Brownie points earnt. Brother wants same for L200.

Too cold for tailgate seals will do when warmer. Bonnet struts in order, and want some bed lights next.

Including a Wallsend, named, in the UK at least, as Hadrian's Wall ended there, but we never covered the Australian extension in Roman history.


Newcastle is coal mining country, so as the original workforce was Welsh, we have lots of Welsh names (Cardiff, Swansea, Aberglasslyn...), plus names from in and around the Old Newcastle (Wallsend, Morpeth, Rothbury, Hexham...).

Itís quite common (and irritating) to have airline search engines direct you to a 26-hour flight to the UK instead of home when you book flights.

mrw27 No problem, 600 hours! Ours does generally well too really. Over 3000hrs on ours, in two years, engine still powerful and sweet.

Yeah, I agree, I prefer the sunny days cutting, instead of rainy days repairing!!

Anyway!
Ours has just 600 hours on it in four years, and only broken 1-shear pin in that time. But we try not to have drain covers sticking up. Harder if you are mowing commercially. Good machines and expect to get a good few more years out of mine. Just put new blades on this year for the first time, although sharpened every year. Drive belts on the front at full extension, next job! Can hear the gardener on it now, how come he gets the good jobs and I get the crappy maintenance stuff.

That's the reason I replaced that one, leaking! It was a serious strip down, never mind doing that every two years!!

Yup, although so far the wife has done more miles than me in it. Took it for a run over the moors to a Visit England event (work related).
First parts have shipped, (seals, tail assist, and tail locking).
Bonnet struts will be on order by tonight.

Cheers
Dave

Nice vehicle list, including the Kubota's! I used to cut huge lawns with a G26!! I had to change an oil feed pipe which ran the length of the chassis, it meant the machine had to be heavily stripped. I had that thing all over the workshop. Back together no problem and running as great as ever. Good machines, reliable.
