Hi mike, where does your appliance operate.

Added by TOMMY SWINDLE on 22 February 2009.
Hi Tommy its based nr ringwood on the Hampshire Dorset border. the nearest big town to us is Bournemouth.Since this picture was taken i have removed all writting from the doors and one row of amber lights from the grill, also the rear amber lights and silver crome markers.

is she still kitted out with tank and pump?. I hate it when people rip the tank and pump out etc then decide only to use the crew cab for seating.

That is to reduce the weight Stevie.....then it can be driven on an ordinary driving licence

..looks crappy with the bank of spots on the cab, take the four middle ones out?

Barrie, can't imagine what terrible things would have to be done for someone of my age to drive one on a normal car licence as after 1997, you are now limited by 3.5 tons.

Depends how long you have held your licence I think Andy

I've already looked into alot on this as I do youth work and to see what I can actually drive(more specifically minibuses), right now I am limited to 8 passenger seats and under 3.5t, and after 21 I can drive anything up to a MAM of 3.5t, to drive higher weights I would need D1 for minibuses which unfortunately I would need as even for hiring which is new buses, even some 12 seaters are greater than 3.5t, when on the older models you could get even 17 seaters under that weight, but to drive something like the above with tanks removed now I would need a light goods vehicle liscence or a HGV one for say a standard appliance.

This still has tanks and pumps in it and is very capable of putting out a fire.
This is a HGV and can not be driven on a car license.
And no pavel it does not look crappy.
