  1. Redwood timber for sale

    We will have a parcel of redwood to be felled this winter near to Redhill, Surrey, there is a total of around 20 trees that can be taken together or individually depending on demand. They are between 5ft and 6ft DBH, woodland grown. good access for any size lorry. We are able to load onto flats with a telehandler. Any interest please come back to me Thanks David 07896036437 info@sparrowhatchforestry.co.uk
  2. Airspade or other suitable tool?

    It really depends on what soil type it is where you are, light sandy soils are no problems heavy clays are a real issue.
  3. 6.5 ton insurance

    Try calling lycetts insurance, I was quoted around £1400 any driver, no experience on a 14t tipper. Also had the same response from NFU, I have no time for them anymore at all
  4. Show us your Arb Diggers please.

    We have an intermercato tiger grip on out 8 tonnner and it is brilliant. Wouldnt recomend anything else, had it for over 2 years with no real issues at all. Very strong and a great worm drive rotator
  5. Always rate bfg muds above anything else, and I think I have tried most of them. A little more than some brands but last set I picked up were just under 100 each with frèe fitting!! They have great road manners as well
  6. Does anyone have the part numbers for the large seals that go between the the bogies and the diff on the bruunett?
  7. Hadlow Down Steam Rally 04/06/17

    Usually a great show, this year was the first time I havnt made it in a good few years. There is always a great selection of engines there, and a few old bits of timber gear in the corners as well. On another note it will be a shame to see george rose closing down, they have lots of smaller hire equipment. I guess its hard to compete against the likes of hss hire, jewson etc now
  8. Wanted- rear bogie for bruunett forwarder

    Will have a look, cheers
  9. Hi, due to a large faliure of everything inside the rear bogies of the forwarder im looking for a complete unit to swap out. Any leads on one or parts would be appreciated Thanks
  10. Does anyone use a Hypro fg45 felling grab

    No, but I looked into them very closely a year or two back. I think they are a really useful unit and could really help with scrub clearance, thinning birch etc. However not sure if they are any better than a tree shear, what are you wanting to run it on. Richard Court is also starting to bring in moipu heads that look like a really good alternative. They do a small shear cut and saw cut model but with rollers and delimbing knives
  11. Mini Artic

    Looked into a similar thing a while ago but decided for the expense of modifying 2 units it would be easier to just get a larger off the shelf truck. Only thoughts with what your proposing is wouldnt the truck and trailer over 3.5t need air brakes? I imagine this would be a fairly costly modification?
  12. Few pictures from this week picking up for another contractor. I dont usuallg drive the brunnett so it has been nice to have a few days out in it . Despite having to do a few repairs over the weekend. Cracked the grapple, easy repair, just a paint taking it off and dragging it back to the yard. Slightly more annoyingly I had a leak appear from this block undernerneath, it had been badly repaired with a mig/arc welder before. I cut the tube off the block, cleaned all the old weld off on the lathe and had a friend tig it back together. Hopefully should last a while now!!
  13. Torn cartilage

    Had this last year, I went for about 9months without getting the surgery. It went from being painful to limping, not being able to climb to struggling with druving right before the operation. Be warned, when they say 4weeks it really isnt. 4 weeks and you will be walking without a stick, but it will still be tender. I didnt climb for about 6months after the operation and only started feeling 100% after about 9 months. Still gets a bit sore and stiff from time to time. How long have they given you till your operation date
