Grabbed a aluminium bike ramp today for $69. Will have to throw out the 25year old hardwood timber slab I scored for $0 25 years agog or loading the dirt bikes.  Not sure the aluminium ramp will last 25 years :D

I thought you would get bogged more now that you don't have a chair to sit in, As you are actually out 4wheeling instead of sitting around the camp fire in a chair  :cheers:  >:D

Has anyone used their inverters that are advertised for next Sat. are they any good?, Thought I might grab one if I can.

 scored a motor bike lifting stand last Sat. and recently brought another work ute with a winch on the front , turns out to be an Aldi job as well.

I grabbed a set of motorbike gloves. Cheap cheap. Had alook at thier jackets & tried one on. Very heavy. Can't unzip the liner like I can on my Joe Rocket.  Made for colder climates me thinks. The largest helmet they had was XL/62cm & I couldn't even get it on my head. The jeans looked alright as well. Not as much protection as Draggers & the like but 1/3rd the price. No change rooms to try them on & I live 2 and abit hrs away from Aldi. Just happened to be in Bundaberg & popped in. Bit far to go back if they don't fit.

Is the inverter a pure sine wave type or not?

I have one of their jackets from a few years ago and the liner comes out it has long sleeves as well maybe they changed the design, will look at the gloves if there is any tomorrow.

The catalogue doesn't say, will have to have a closer look on Sat.

I am guessing that it should say on the box or at least give a diagram of what shape the power wave is, if it doesn't say either way i would take it as a modified wave type. The Bay has pure sine wave for 10 bucks exta.

Are the winches any good?

I have the air compressor from several years ago and it's still going strong. Looks exactly the same as a mate's TJM unit.

 Don't know yet as I have only had the ute one week, but at least it goes in and out when I push the button. The sales man knew nothing about it so it was a lucky dip as to wether it was a good feature or just an ornament.

Ok some info on The aldi winches.
I was given one as a gift by the olds about 3 years ago. ( I was told I couldn't buy another one until it died lol)
I fitted it, Never cleaned it, never greased it, Never unspooled it and respooled it after use, never looked after it at all lol.
I ran single line pulls for longer than 30 seconds etc etc...

It lasted 3 years and only just died. All that died was the main relay. It could do with a clean, a regrease and a new winch rope, but over all a great option if you are after a cheap winch.
The main reason for being so rough on it, was that I didn't want to put my faith in something that I didn't know. I have no hesitation to say go for it. ( but aldi specials do change between years, so if it is the same then go for it)

Some bloke on another forum use to rave about the Aldi winches. He even pulled them apart and compared specs to some big name brands . He seemed to rate them highly.
At the time I thought he was a fairly knowledgable bloke.
Dunno if that helps...

The aldi winches are fine treated properly. My boss had one and totally abused it and it made 2-3 years and it was only the contactor that went as above.

Anyone got feedback on these recovery tracks?

Never used them, but looked at them last time and they are really heavy.
Other than that no feedback from me.

Anyone have advice on the compressor https://www.aldi.com.au/en/special-buys/saturday-16-august-2014/saturday-detail-wk33/ps/p/air-compressor-150lpm/ .  Its interesting the compressor comes with fittings to blow up air beds etc.  I was sure these type of compressors arent designed for this type of thing?

Thanks in advance.

The LED work lights at $20 are excellent.  I bought rolls of LEDs etc to wire up the camper but never bothered as 3 or 4 of the magnetic rechargeable work lights did the job perfectly with no wires and little fuss.

Yeah, I got one of those ones. Quite a good compressor. I've blown up 5 air mattresses in a row, and other than the connections @ the compressor getting rather hot, it handled it quite well.

Seems to pump up the 4x4 tyres quite well.

Got lino6 and I a pair of bike gloves he wasn't there with me so I just chose a size and of course didn't need to try his on only to get home and find they were both right handed gloves in the pack hahaha, luckily he was able to get the left one when he went into town today.
