this 👆👆 has just given me an idea ... be an easy heat source for keeping boxes dry/warm for the colder, condensatey nights ... fit a frost-stat or keep it ticking over around 6-ish deg.s C :) anyone know what the fuel consumption is like on 'em ?:unsure:

I’ve been keeping my eye out for one too, ideally I’d want 30ft, split down to 10ft office - 20ft canteen/kitchen - 10ft two toilets(male/female) and a drying room
Outside canopy would be good shout , also a urinal on the outside would be a good idea , save destroying the inside toilet for the 10pissaday scaffolders!!

do it as well as you can,but learn to do it better
Two toilets !! So two labourers can hide at once.

Tbh I prefer having a drying room and if necessary a second independent portaloo. No way does a second toilet beat a drying room.
without being the talk of the site :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Our favourite site canteen is an old caravan. Tow it to site quite easily. Park it up, hs a cooker and a seating area, couple of hooks to hang wet gear and does the job!! Last one got towed to the skip waste transfer station as it had become rather battered. But for the money we pain and what it cost to get rid, saved a lot over the number of jobs it done.
We usually use a hire Co for a recycling toilet.

I know a guy who runs one in a camper van. I think he said on full time they use a couple of litres a day.

The problem is they don’t like running on ‘tickover’ as they coke up. They need a blast at full output every few hrs to keep them running

This doesn't look bad if you where to buy one

Otherwise we've had garlic and mobile mini hired on site




Although usually we have groundhog units but you pay a premium for having wheels on them

Bought this ground hog one for £4k from auction, seats 6, toilet and drying room with 6kw generator, has a night heater but it’s a proper non Chinese one eabersacher? with frost control and proper house thermostat only I’m going try add Chinese controller to able to program 7am heat on for an hour 😂

Added 100w solar panel and charge controller and a big truck battery, solar charge controller has 2 usb so phones and other things charge without generator

Want to add wind out awning like smithy said so can have shelter area and door open when raining

Need a boot brush as well

We’ve got some fold out chairs, jump leads, spill kit, chains, straps, socket set, a few fire extinguisher etc it’s great real.

Leave wet kit and leave heater on 2 hour timer dries them out nicely

I’ve a George Foreman grill to add that’s a great shout, and we’ve a toaster, cup a soup and toast on wet cold day is a real boost haha

We’ve also got it stashed with pot noodles, biscuits, instant coffee with milk etc but bacon sarnie be good with contact grill

We’ve a 12/240v fridge in there

but with all these new genders there will be more and more toilets needed..
Went to a collage recently,big question was the door signs offending people,not the price or the usual problems.

in a 40 ft box it'll have its work cut out getting it warm anyway ... won't be much ticking over done, I doubt - on or off :LOL:
