Just wondering what does mot stand for when describing base
Believe it or not -
Ministry Of Transport.
Apparently because they are the government body who decides it
Thanks I had racked my brains for possible combinations, never thought of that one!
I also couldn’t think what words the letters MOT stood for in relation to the product.
Had to search the internet because I needed to know
Thanks replied on KAIB's post then my posting went to hell in a hand cart when I tried to edit it!
Don't expect a plumber to know that.
And 1 tonne of MOT Type One is required to cover 10.1 square metres at a depth of 50mm, or 1.98 cubic metres.
Isn’t it also as MOT used to be mainly road scalpings from resurfacing road works
Think scalpings are still used as well as other materials for MOT layer
The only MOT I know about is once a year on my car.
It's all cover in section 0800 in link below, good bedtime reading.
Thanks Kiab but I’m actually fantastic at getting to sleep and have no need for any outside stimuli. On the odd occasion I do (very rarely) then a slug of something tasty and alcoholic hits the spot
As for bedtime reading, it’s either the SF catelogue or another fine publication, know as chefs p orn, the mighty Nisbets Catelogue
Been through the Kama Sutra 3 times and after putting my back out, never again I vowed
KIAB think there may be something wrong with your conversion. I’ve always found 1 tonne of type 1 is equivalent to just over half a cubic metre compacted so for an area 10m by 1m at 50mm deep, equals 10x1x.05 you need about 1 tonne as that’s half a cubic metre agreed but don’t get ‘1.98cu ms’ ?? Unless I’m misreading something?
He has forgotten to invert it! 1/1.98 = 0.50505050505
And his original sum of 10.1 sq m x 50mm deep is 0.505 cu m
Blame my calculator/or idiot using it.
@ 50mm i allow 9M2 per tonne, not to far out in guessimates.
That's no way to describe a fellow poster.
Separate names with a comma.
