    Hi

    Yes, you can do 2t ATM on a single axle. The axle should be 50mm with a set of springs rated for the weight. In my case its 9 leaf springs (60 X 7mm). Hope this helps.

    Cheers

    Col Fletcher Prouty explains how the term "fossil fuels" came about. A real eye opener, makes you wonder what else they lied about.

    Hi

    I got a Hush70 and very happy with it. Its the only model that uses 1.1kw motors. Rated at 343L/min FAD but I have not verified this myself. Only wish the tank was bigger.
