Technically speaking none because you had received instructions on how to operate it and you were not using it to dig with; yes the law is as clear as mud does my head in. :arrrrgh: Even if you had your full ticket for one and there was an accident where somebody was killed both the company and yourself would still be subject to prosecution :evil: makes me sick that's why they no longer call it 'an accident' they refer to it as 'an incident' just so that somebody can be blamed, so I wonder if accidents even exist anymore.

Nice looking bit of kit! GAP seems to be a big user of Kubota excavators, in fact I don't think I've seen any other make with their logo on it. Never managed to visit their depot though to see what they have.

The impressions I get from speaking to drivers on these machines are fairly highly rated though.

Hmm I haven't seen any of those yet. The only non-Kubota plant I've seen from GAP are their site dumpers lol. Thanks for letting me know. :thumbup:
