Why are the prices of these things such a closely guarded secret?

Dealers could at least advertise an RRP, it wouldn't kill them.

 

@Blake@waveney and @Kipper Hire Ltd, what are we looking at ballpark for the smallest Worky Quad with some kind of grab?

 

Can they be driven up ramps into a truck bed, or do you need a separate trailer?

No secrets here, if you're interested send me over an email address and i'll happily send over a full retail pricelist. 

Retail on the most basic Worky Quad which is the SSQ11 Country is £11,340+VAT, worth noting once you've spec'd it up to have some extra counterweights you're getting close to 12k.  The narrow access grapple bucket retails at £1,155+VAT.

 

Nothing stopping you driving it up ramps into a truck bed, only limiting factors would be space and weight, as even the smallest machine without counterweights or an attachment is 575kg.

 

Cheers,

Craig

Full list would be great.

 

Is the grapple bucket the most common attachment for arb?

 

I could get away without counterweights with some of the fat knackers I work with!

 

No worries Mark, I've just sent that over now so should be in your inbox.

 

It's certainly been the most popular with our hire customers who are predominately Arb guys as it's works well on both timber and brash. The 74cm bucket is built to keep the machine width down if you've gone for the narrow access tyres but if you go for bigger tyres it might be worth going for the 85cm or 100cm bucket.

Same as Ian has, I was impressed by it when. I helped him on a job he had it on but definitely helped with Ian as counterbalance on the back against a normal sized man [emoji12]
I belive finch arb wants 8.5k for it with 2 grabs and bucket but not the grab in that picture
