Big League – 3500kg

Earthmovers & Excavators - - Contents -

1. Ford Ranger: A com­bi­na­tion of grunt, fi­nesse and solid en­gi­neer­ing

2. Holden Colorado: This ute can fi­nally haul with a de­gree of classy com­fort. There’s plenty of power on tap and the new steer­ing is ex­cel­lent un­der load

3. Mazda BT-50: It may lack the up­dated kit of both the Ranger and the Colorado, but it’s a solid tow unit that’s con­fi­dent and ca­pa­ble 4. Isuzu D-Max: Has a go, but lacks the grunt and ca­pa­bil­ity of re­cent ar­rivals and up­dates

5. Nis­san Navara NP300: Just don’t. Lit­tle League – 2800kg 1. Toy­ota Hilux: A good all-rounder that is no doubt ca­pa­ble of more. We’d love to try it in man­ual 3500kg guise

2. Mit­subishi Triton: Very ca­pa­ble at this weight, a sur­pris­ing per­former. It’s hard to ig­nore the value propo­si­tion.
