As Shaggy says, ours is used for shunting trailers chippers around on site and in the yard, loading over the side of high side ifor, scraping up sawdust etc. 

Very handy piece of kit. will rip up lawns if careless but plywood boards as turning areas sorts that. Can make your thumbs ache but better than your back.

Fun.

Paid £1300 for mine, had offers of over £3500 for mine.

Microbulls are all the rage here.

2 mates in Bordeaux and Paris have recently bought one.

I might have been tempted myself but I couldn't seem to get the supplier interested in a demo.

I'm following my mates progress.

2 others have recently bought the Toro 1000, also a machine of interest though a scale up from the über compact loaders.

In Ireland: €12700+vat with 18hp

€14500 for 22jhp

timber grab is €750

I spoke to a guy who had a demo,

he weighed the bale in the photo , it was over 250kgs.

said had tried several different makes and found  this the most user friendly and stable.

Exactly how much interest has Mark Schaefer of Spectrum got in Kipper Hire? Spectrum (and good luck to them) import the loaders, fire wood processors and grinders that are your sole inputs into this forum?

Hi Pete,

Kipper Hire are a sister company of Spectrum, all the kit they import into the UK we import into Scotland for them, so rather than them have to manage a dealer network up here we do that for them. 
Cheers, Craig
