Cool photo Chris!

Funny as I also used to install Grundfos pumps may years ago when working with my dad, I was driving a Nissan 2.4 4x4 back then.

Here is mine at work, nothing off road but hauling just over 4.5 ton from Cape Town to PE.

Cheers,
Mark

P.S. we should start a page entitled "Patrols @ Work"

Thanks for the positive feedback.

I know that Patrols are doing heavy duty work with Eskom and the Tshwane electricity department. The UN also uses them extensively.
It would be interesting to know how they compare with other vehicles in ability and reliability. Running cost will also be interesting.

From experience I know that you cannot kill them. With regular maintenance they just keep on working.

Chris.

This would be a great advert for Nissan, oh I forgot, they don't advertise the best 4x4 on the planet :think:

Ja John , ek spesialiseer nou al 35 jaar in pomptoets werk en Grundfos toerusting. Ek wys deesdae ook boorpunte aan.
Wat doen jy met water?
