We put an Ironman bar on another work vehicle and it also appears well made. Welds are neat etc. The only issue we had with the...

I have a Darche 270. The hinges and spars are pretty heavy duty, but as others have said, you never know when you might get a big gust of wind. I haven't been game to use it without dropping the legs...

It will do it, but a slipping torque converter will produce heat. It's not great practice to let it do it for an extended period.

Bear in mind too that the OP's vehicle is an NS which has the...

So, the answer to the question about how you remove them if you are on a long steep slope and require consecutive recovery runs is, you can't.

Yeah, I get that's what you are saying. The issue is there is no such thing as a fixed gear CVT. I can't find anything on the Mitxubishi site that explains exactly how the engine directly drives the...

You have the wrong end of the stick about CVTs.
CVT stands for "continuously variable transmission", not "constant variable transmission".

I don't have my NS any more, but from memory there is a section in the manual regarding the DPF regens. I reckon there is a minimum speed for it to initiate and continue a regen, but it's less than...

The receiving sensitivity can vary a fair bit between different brands and models. The Auscb one picks up transmissions almost as well as my inbuilt Uniden.
