Are we still looking for a car brand that starts with Z?
I'd rather have tools that I don't need, than not have the tools I do need.

I saw one of those in a showroom in Melbourne in early '60s (I was walking past, I didn't go in!)

Lightburn. Didn't they make concrete mixers or something?

PDU why not just fit them, second tank same as the first, and tool boxes like everyone does, hanging from under the tray and bolted to the chassis. I cant move my ACCO tray everything underneath would fall off.... fuel tank battery box and 3 tool boxes, spare wheel carrier might be chassis only mounted.

Just about everyone on this forum would have a Lightburn 8 ton truck jack.....standard jack sold with IH chassis for many years......Or a Lightburn PSPE bathtub .....there were a few makers of cast iron PE tubs(CIPE) ,but far as I know Lightburn were the only makers of the pressed steel ones ....The factory was at East Brisbane ,on a sort of an island in Norman Creek.....All the 500 ton Hamilton presses went for scrap when they went broke about 1975......hit first by the 74 floods ,then by the 70s oil shock recession.

In Qld,you have to get a mod plate for a tray.....means unless its professionally fitted ,engineers approval is needed......The sandblasters had a bit of an arrangement with the yearly inspections ,cost heaps ,but the trucks did pass....but the guy would cut up rough ocassionally about obvious faults......Thats why Col didnt like the bogie ACCO I bought them .....govt inspection ....But he did like the crane ,when it come to getting things done that previously took days............And no Jarrod ,ya cant have the Harrier.......I might have to go back to work the rate the country s going to the dogs............And some here might recall what happened when Victoria had a big debt ......Jeff Kennet simply made everyone with a house pay for it....In one hit.


Just watch the GST jump to minimum 15% when this is all over. They’ve been wanting to do it for years, this will be the perfect storm.
