I've just bought this for a neighbour's driveway. I chose it because a car will drive over it daily. The company's official info. sheet is attached. But the Wickes info. says " not suitable for anything heavier than pedestrian traffic". Can you see why I'm confused? I know that Wickes used to sell the first one in the list so I suspect they haven't amended their sheet. If you look on the Wickes website you'll see that the 5 tonne is the only one they now sell of this type and my invoice definitely says 5t so if the car disappears down the hole who will be to blame?

Wickes cock a lot of things up on their website IME, so find some independent means of checking.

Which one did you get? if you got the - PC6BG = 5 tonne GPW - then it's not pedsetrian only, it's rated for a 5T loading. It's the PC6AG that's the pedestrian only one.

Any concerns then call Clarke Drain??

Thanks. Clark Drain is going to call me this morning. I saw the list of the various loads on their website and I'm sure it's the 6BG one but there's no identification mark that I can see on it. The Wickes site says pedestrian only.
