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. 

We've an ex demo one in stock, We'd happily hire it for you to try and if you want to keep it we wouldn't charge you the hire

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.

Saw this, thought of you...

Never again Stu!

 

One thing I did notice today was up the yard.

In the first vid that little cord pile you can see when Beth is on the loader is what my mate wanted to keep for himself.

He handballed it into the trailer behind his mower tractor.

 

The main cord I loaded into the Transit was probably 18” dia in 3-4’ lengths.

I ringed it today and got it in the log store.

What a mess!

 

Sod cleaning that much dust and crud up on site.

 

Yes, it’s more time up the yard, but I can pick and choose when I do that.

 

Loving the loader life.

Another loader win today.

Windblow job priced for 4 of us for 2 days, rinsed in an easy 2 with 2 of us and the loader.

 

Multiple leylandii that had been in a paddock since Eunice, grass and bindweed grown through the brush etc.

Would have been a nightmare pulling apart by hand.

 

The WQ has it’s limitations power wise, but it’s still bloody amazing what it will do.

Most grabbed, a few awkward bits pulled out with a short bull rope on the ball hitch.

You will find yourself wanting a bigger chipper to stick all that brash you so effortlessly get to it now days after a while of having a 8inch machine and a loader I decided I must have a bigger machine now take the ten inch 90hp machine to nearly every job and the loader perfect combination [emoji108]
