Re: crane fed pto chipper hire needed south wales

pics? will maybe get a few up tomorrow but i'm talking just your generic heap of <4" ash & hawthorn which has developed after a little bit of thinning over winter.

theres about half a dozen fairly dense piles about 5m x 5m x 3m it needs shifted so i can put a hardstanding down so i dont get so bleedin muddy this winter.

i was toying with the idea of handballing it all into the 6" towalong but its not really roadside thats the problem. plus i'm lazy this month.

Re: crane fed pto chipper hire needed south wales

cool, let me have a think about the box, thats a great price for the digger. i nearly bought one years ago for crane feeding my chipper on the mog, i was going to put it on the front of the mog and take it to jobs, but they were a lot newer then and i couldnt justify it.

Re: crane fed pto chipper hire needed south wales

she'd stick out a fair bit though! thats a good idea but have you seen the reach on them? i was toying with the idea of sitting it on a little trailer chassis and using it as a forwarder around my place but the reach doesnt really justify it. you would struggle to pick up more than a grab full of brash though i dont think you would get any logs moved with it because of the stability.
actually i just rememeber i did a job in the village a few years ago and took the digger there in a grain bucket on the telehandler. had some looks that morning fair play.
