Looking at my driving licence, it says i can drive the following:
Under 9 Cat:
f k p
& that's your lot for me.
Now at work, they try and get us to take fork lift trucks on the road. While i'll cross the road to get to the shop side, i wont go off up the road & round the corner to do a favour for the boss' mate like say, the foreman does. I'm not convinced that's legal (That said, i'm not convinced simply driving across the road is legal either).
They also try and get us to go off down the road on the JCBs. I've always refused as i'm not sure whether my licence covers it or not. I think it's all based on engine power too isn't it?
Anyway, so i had a look at the plates for the following JCB's:
Now on the plate for #1 the power is shown as:
Engine Power KW@ RPM
That's what it says on the plate.
Now for #2, it shows:
Doesn't say anything about engine power, but as the figures were similar, i took it that this part of the plate was referring to engine power.
Ignoring the fact that the tyres are now bald on JCB2 etc, how do i find out for sure whether it's legal or not for me to be taking these off down the road?
