Telehandler Log Grab

Recommended Posts

It’s a Duvelsdorf grab. Although I’ve looked on there webpage and it doesn’t look like they still make them. Very similar to the kelfri in the ops post. Couple of pictures of the diverter valve and quick coupling plugs for electric to diverter, sussy style cable to go between for boom extension and self retracts. Found ours second hand in the farmers guide, lucky find as was already on brackets to fit the machine, although 300 mile round trip to get it home.. 

Yep that’s exactly what I’m after.

That came later!   Actually the main trunk was half rotten as you can see and I cut it up with the Lucas Mill into 8x8 inch lengths which I then put through the processor.  The resulting 8x8x16 inch logs were surprisingly good for loading into the wood stove as because they were so tightly packed they stayed in burning for hours.

When the Lucas is cutting 8x8s it soon makes a large tree trunk disappear!


I could easily have pulled the tree along with just the Cat D7, but it had fallen into the ditch and the trunk was embedded in the bank hence I had to lift it up first with the Matbro to clear the bank.


On another note, Daisy Etta has just returned from her doctor following a very expensive heart transplant operation.  The Beast from the East attacked her a year ago and did an amazing amount of damage in that short cold snap.  It cracked the main 14 litre block and the cylinder head on the donkey despite being under cover and surrounded by one ton boxes of wood.

My little Fiat Panda 4x4 was out exposed in the same weather with no antifreeze and did not suffer at all.

I have really missed Daisy Etta for a whole year as she does so much in the woods and on the roads.

Ouch. Glad you have her up and running again. I like to see old machinery still in use.
