That's great Swishy, timely and funny! Please go the fridge and grab a beer...


And, MrsMP, the question on every busted arse owner drivers lips is 'Did you find the wheels?'
I'd rather have tools that I don't need, than not have the tools I do need.

Very good swish man
A quick question do I need spin the record twice as I lost both donuts lol

South bound we searched and searched and only found on donut and a couple of bolts, so one of lifes mystery's I guess

Funny enough we found other people's wheels

As a side note, the Princess went to Bendigo yesterday for parts and never made it back

Flat at Wood Wood last night, changed and on the road again and she got another flat at Piangle

It appears its not the week to have air in our tyres

I had a lockring blow off one of the front wheels of a 8 wheel Leader ,and lost the tire before I could stop.......found the tire nearly 12 months later in some thick bushes........Fortunately ,it didnt hit a car,but ran alongside the truck for a way before going off into the paddock beside the road.....Creek Rd Carina......all houses and a retirement village now,

Following a loaded four wheeled hay cart behind a truck (somewhere in Western Victoria, 1966) when it lost the right hand rear wheel on the cart. Somehow the cart stayed upright, although the load now hung precariously over the oncoming lane, and the driver drove on apparently unaware!?!? :pinch:
As we followed along behind we watched the errant wheel clear a hedge, and bounce to the far side of a paddock, then bounce over the far side hedge before disappearing into the next paddock. :huh:
The driver continued for about another mile before we warily (and hurriedly) passed the swaying load and waved him down. :dry:
I'd say the odds he ever found that wheel would have been somewhere between highly-unlikely and non-existent! :blink:
I wonder if anyone on here was responsible for that particular load? :unsure:

Just travelled back from Port Macquarie this afternoon and on a bend a caravan heading north had not clipped down the front aluminium panel over the front window. When we caught a glimpse of it, it was folded back as far as possible, torn off the hinge and arm on the drivers side and about to leave the owner. As he had no UHF we could not call him and the truck following him could not catch up to the van to warn him as it was travelling at a fair rate of knots.

Oooooh, after readin' some of these comments l don't feel so special anymore. A bloke that lived around the corner from us in Hamlyn Heights usedta cart for Featherrock Quarries and after his LNT9000, he had a 111 or 141 Scania still with the tri pig. One mornin' we were motorin' along Conrod Straight between Werribee and Laverton when we were passing said bloke in said Scania. Just as we were level with his truck, the weirdest thing happened. The front right tyre and rim (Can't remember if the Spider hub was still affixed), came off, and free wheeled (So ta speak), across 3 lanes of traffic and along the grass in the middle. It musta gone for a K or more and hopefully it never got ta hit anythin' Geelong bound!!

Does the drover get the job of using a jack hammer to remove the concrete once set?
