Finally got the back on tonight. It's took a bit of figuring out on the tipping ram but it works. The back seems to hang over a foot and I am worried that the chipper will catch on the back. If anyone has a chipper on, could you measure from the back of the mog to the front flywheel plate on the chipper please. I haven't bought the link arms yet so I could make my own up that would be longer.
Sorry for crap photos, bloody late nights.

The top link will probably foul the body, as both of mine do before it reaches the top of it arc. I wouldn't bother making longer arms as your just moving weight further away from the axel. Either don't lift it as high (as I did) or cut a channel into the floor for the top link to rise through. Are you making a 3 way tip for the chip box or are you going to have to take the chipper on and off to tip?

Just found that out tonight Casto, the body will only lift 200mm. I am not sure if it's going to work and I need it for the weekend. Cutting the floor sounds the easiest option if I am honest, I will crack on with it tomorrow night. Happy to see it with everything on tho. I have a din plate and front links to go on, I am thinking of just using the front to transport it and put it on the rear to chip. I have a double drum winch that I wanted to go on the front.

I'd just stick it on the back. U have a tp chipper don't you? They don't sit to low and you'll be suprised how much chip you will get in before you have problems with the chipper hitting the road (usually speed humps to be fair) You'll probably find that it's a pain running to a job with it on the front, then switching it round to the have it working on the rear. Mine hardly used to be taken off the mog as there was only me to hitch it back up again!

Looks good! Err yeah that body is rather long 😂. If it was me I'd loose the tool box off the front , move the chip box to behind the cab. Gives more clearance for the top link and moves the weight of the chip forward. I found with kassy, she would be rather light with the steering when she was full of chip.

She did the job of running chip back and forth no problem. We figured out it was 21 cubic meters of chip we took away in the end it was a long day!

Yeah still haven't figured out how to mount the chipper on, even thinking of making a top link bracket actually on the chipper body. Will sort it out and get back to it.

She shouldn't even break a sweat doing that 😊 glad to her she ran ok, did you have a road tow chipping? I've always had a truck to do the humping of chip then put everything else in the mog

Yeah, I get the road tow really cheap and it sucks Laylandii through like nothing.
That's what I want to do but the young lad I have working for me can't drive yet and I don't trust him driving the mog.

Going to try and get the NATO hitch off tonight, any tips on how it comes off?

Really need to update this more often.

I am still struggling to upload photos tho.

Finally got the Mog sorted to somewhere I was using it, I made a fixed pickup hitch and attached my Botex trailer to it.

Long story short I was coming home in the Mog and went round a right hand corner a bit fast and had a blow out, it through the Mog on it's side and me out of the window. luckily I was ok  but the cab is totalled and I am on the look out for any condition cab just to get it back working.
