Do you mind me asking what sort of money we're talking to insure a dumper? It might be a laugh bowling down the leafy lanes in one. ;)

Thank you for that. I can afford the insurance, may buy a dumper.

Would have to find a way of attaching a second seat, my Granddaughter likes odd forms of transport, too. :)

Hi there

Where did you insure it and how much was it?

This machine I’ve done up it has a number plate but not sure which number they used to license it with as it has no serial number,the plate is there but no numbers you can read.

Wanted to try and make it road legal, it’s an 1983 thwaites 4000 alldrive, I have a full parts manual if any of you are stuck for how much oil gearbox holds ect. Contact me and I will try to reply ASAP or ask for my email and contact me that way.

Wow the rush of blood to my head now makes it look right :dizzy:

Here in Oz when your a member of a restgortion club we get some priviledges and can put Club rego on certain toys and I think eath moving equipment can be one of them. For the membership cost each year plus a small rego fee it is covered by insurances through the club but if you want to go further there are insurance brokers and a company called Shannons who specialise in covering all sorts of vehicles so a specialty insurer may be found in the UK.
