Arborist Solves Historical Problem


Recommended Posts



With an ageing Skid-Steer Loader, Lancashire based Arborists Marrick Tree Care & Firewood wanted to seize the opportunity to solve a number of issues when choosing a replacement. The principal problem was a lack of manoeuvrability, visibility and flexibility in the old Skid-Steer, with a tendency to cause ground damage, which couldn’t be used on the more sensitive sites.


With a range of Domestic and Commercial clients, the team of Qualified Arborists provide Tree Maintenance, Tree & Stump Removal, Site Clearance and Landscaping services. They compliment this with the supply of bulk kiln dried firewood and all these activities involve lifting and handling, hence the need for a mechanical Loader of some type.




A chance encounter with the MultiOne Dealer for Lancashire, R.E Buildings came at a local trade show. Following a discussion and assessment of their needs, the 5.3 model was recommended and an on site demonstration was swiftly arranged. The demo was a revelation and this little Loader ticked all the boxes. Highly manoeuvrable and very low in weight (1050kgs), yet with a max tipping load of 1,140kgs the diminutive size belies the muscle on tap. Featuring a telescopic boom, the max lift height of 2.75 metres proved sufficient to load timber and debris into trucks and trailers, as well as feeding into the wood chipper. The true versatility of MultiOne is the multitude of attachments available for quick and easy switching on site. This model features a 42l/min aux. flow rate, sufficient to power a Flail Mower or Stump Grinder to add to Marrick’s armoury. …and the principal problem? Solved. With low weight, centre pivot steering and a clever traction management device, the 5.3 is light and nimble on its tyres and so ground damage is now a thing of the past.


Marrick joins a growing band of Arborists whose MultiOnes enhance productivity and safety on site, which ultimately equates to a more profitable business.



Marrick Tree Care Proprietor, Mark Green comments:



“this little loader has definitely opened up new opportunities for us and we have seen a growth in our business thanks to it’s versatility. My team enjoys using it and won’t go to site without it. I’m really pleased with the service provided by R.E Buildings and their on site demo showed me the decision to acquire this was a no brainer”.

Just needs proper fat low ground pressure tyres, not those hard/everlasting Industrial types as fitted.



Theres is a few different tyre options. Those fitted make it less than 1m wide(*without back weights fitted)  I have low ground pressure ones fitted to mine. With back weights and tyres Makes it 1.1m wide.

I read the title with interest....
.... i read the rest of the post with slightly less interest.
I am none the wiser, I'm afraid.  Can anyone enlighten me what exactly the 'historical problem' was that the arborist solved?
I think the historical problem is that most arborists can't afford a multione loader. Not sure about the solution though.
