Opico Skidster or sherpa mini loaders

I was in a portaloo outside Twickenham on Saturday, where we’d gone for my brothers 50th for the Army v Navy.
My drunken nephew decided it would be fun to tip it over.
 
Hilarious.

Oh no, did you get covered in piss and shit too? I bet he's feeling a bit of a dick now........

I saw August Hunicke use them once on his Vermeers, but not since.

Seemed good at the time, but depends on the flow.

Jury is out for me

Works well for me on an e27 with 50l/min.


I reckon it would be painfully slow on a Sherpa, Worky Quad or similar but if you really want I can try it.

Used our Klou cone splitter on the Giant and Microbull, 

 

Works well up, did manage to get it stuck on a big twisty bit of ash, but I was asking a bit much and got a bit gready! 

 

This size stuff was a breeze, and you could move stuff quite easily with it as well

I saw videos of the Klou cone splitter on the worky-quad 11hp, looked to do the job pretty well. That Klou also do a stump grinder definitely needs a higher flow machine. Pet beaver would be cheaper and quicker.

We've run one on the Giant and the microbull, (25hp kuboto and 23hp yanmar respectively) and actually runs a bit better on the microbull - in noway the same league as a dedicated tracked grinder - but would hold its own with a pedestrian machine, come in around the £3950 + VAT mark 

 

Video here of it on the Giant, not the most exciting video, but gives you an idea, interchangeable plate means we run the same unit on our 2.6 ton digger for awkward hire jobs where our D30 wont reach/can't access (4 bolts and the snap couplings to swap over)

 

This is on the single pump Giant, we've recently purchased a tandem pump version so will try it on that when I get a moment to see if there is any difference

 

They also make a swing arm version, you can get it with a diverter and electric control switch if the base unit only has one function

im thinking about getting one for splitting bigger rounds / logs before chucking them on my wee logsplitter. most the videos I see are of them splitting longer branch wood / stems.
