Tow bar and Trailer

Post by HwoodMike2umate » Tue Jul 31, 2018 4:17 pm

Thinking of getting tow bar added to my wee Susuki Alto and then buying a small trailer. 2 issues arise.

A) Where is the cheapest place in the greater Belfast/Ballymena/Holywood area to get a tow bar added to a car?
B) Is anyone here disposing of an unwanted but roadworthy trailer that they would like collected?

Ponder and discuss. No rush.

It's the downhills that frighten me. When your recycling overtakes you on the way.

In theory, a Suzuki Alto can legally tow up to 750kg (or 85% of kerb weight).

I got a towbar fitted by David Murphy, Belfast Road, Carryduff. Tell your insurance company.

The published manufacturer's spec seems to be 200kg braked/100kg unbraked.

I would assume not. You're not suggesting that Mike is living in Belfast, but taking his waste to North Down and Ards for them to dispose of it?

Hope this trailer isn't for moving on purposes?
I have my own tv channel, what have you got?

Can we not make an exception to the moving on ban in Michael's particular case?

No. Best to have him shot just incase he gets any ideas.

200kg, that's not much use, I wouldn't consider anything under 25 000kg useful.
