TX3800 GME radios

For those who bought radios off me, there will be a need to reprogram them as the DLRA has had a COMPLETE radio system upgrade to allow for a repeater to be used on the Track two radio system as well as track one. Channel configuration will now be Track 1, channel 1 :D Track 2, channel 2 :) and chan...

Re: Diesel fuel trailer

2 IBCs in an 8x4 bogie box trailer will give you legal transport for 2,000lts, I would think the cheapest option by far. Bob. Bob, This is a VERY good option, and as you said LEGAL. I beleive the eastern states have something in hand. :D Cheers, Trevor

Re: Diesel fuel trailer

I was dreaming the other day about how we could make our lives better/easier and I came up with an all-terrain fork lift/loader with a drum adaptor. It all exists now trouble is justifying the $30-50,000 to buy it. http://www.aalhysterforklifts.com.au/uploads/newforklifts/images/agria_large.jpg htt...

Re: Diesel fuel trailer

All excellent solutions. Thank you gents for your endeavors. The amount of diesel we use nowadays to run an event is becoming a manual handling nightmare.
Us old blokes backs thank you.

Re: Diesel fuel trailer

Stayte thanks for that. Bit far from me but as you said I am sure there would be somebody in the group with contacts. Next year is going to be BIG and we will need considerable resources. 3000ltrs would be a target tank I think. Anything less would still involve humping 200ltr drums around. Cheers, ...

Re: Diesel fuel trailer

Greg, Thanks for the homework. I think we need to go down this road and have spoken to Norm Pres about this. We really need 3000ltr at a minimum I think (15 x 200ltr drums) as there is more electrical demand at the racers camp nowadays and with that comes more diesel requirements for the genset and ...

Diesel fuel trailer

Anybody out there know where we may be able to get hold of a 2500-3000ltr, preferably 3000ltr diesel fuel trailer suitable for towing from the Racers camp to the mail road fuel truck and back to the camp. Would be nice to have 12volt pump and metered delivery nozzle as well but not totally necessary...
