OLD MAN EMU UPGRADES FRONT AXLE CAPACITIES


ARB knows the importance of being able to accessorise your vehicle to suit your requirements –and this can come with an additional load.


With the gross vehicle mass upgrades already available, ARB has now invested significantly in an independent testing process. They can now offer an increase in front axle load capacities for a series of the most popular current 4WD models when coupled with an Old Man Emu full suspension package. This validation process has found up to 170kg of increased capacity.


ARB's front axle load upgrades are standard with any full Old Man Emu Nitrocharger or BP-51 Suspension kit and are demonstrated by certification attached to your vehicle's door pillar, owner's manual and customer handover pack.


For customers who currently own these models,and have had Old Man Emu suspension fitted, assessment for compliance is available through their local ARB store.


CARGO STRAPS AND TIE-DOWNS


Secure your load with ARB's updated range of Cargo Straps and Tie-Down System. ARB Cargo Straps now feature rubber moulded handles, reflective printed lashing capacity on the strap and improved hooks to accommodate ARB roof racks. Coming complete with a nylon mesh storage bag to keep your straps tidy and, importantly, fully compliant with AS/NZS requirements.

ARB's Tie-Down System has an anodised, powder-coat black finish to protect from the elements when mounting externally and chamfered ends to protect the vehicle if mounting internally.

2KG GOLD NUGGET FOUND WITH A MINELAB GPX4500


Finding a two-kilogram gold nugget is a good thing. Finding it when the gold price is soaring to record highs is even better.


That’s the situation one prospector has found himself in after digging up a beautiful 63-ounce specimen on the outskirts of the famous gold rush town of Ballarat in Central Victoriawith a Minelab GPX4500.The nugget was found about a metre down in old pastureland -below 30cm of wash and about 15cm of very hard clay.


The location was within 150kmof Ballarat with the prospector keeping the specific site a secret for obvious reasons.With gold passing the AU$2,000 per ounce mark, the nugget has a gold value of about $130,000 but collectors are offering a premium for the nugget’s rarity.





Right after his find the prospector bought a top of the range Minelab GPZ 7000 which unearthed a 1928-gram nugget in Western Australia, late 2018.
