Insurance... I don't have any but I only really fell in big forests etc for one big contractor so I'd guess we are covered from them....

 

 

Maybe I'll push the boat out and buy one of those jacks in a few months. 

Have you come across Calum Duffy, he has loads of different jacks, it would be worth chatting to him.

And no doubt @Spruce Pirate has had a little experience with them.

Aye I've spoke to him a few times on Whatsapp or Messenger. 
 

Might buy it after Christmas tbf as it's all I really do is jack trees over. How much lift does that Chris Forestry one do?

It's rated at 30 tonnes .

If you want to treat yourself to a Christmas present,  have a look at the Bontrager jacks in Oregon

They don't give near enough lift mate. Think the biggest one is only 5 inch of lift.

The Nordforest one, once its bedded in will not slip.

I've not tried the Clark one, so i can't comment ,  but i think that they are similar in design .

The Nordforest one you have looks far more better than the Clark one. Look forward to seeing more videos of Welsh(?) forestry

Thank for that,  thats a bit of bold forward thinking from FISA

 

No bother, it is somewhat surprising to see FISA getting to grips with reality!

I've mostly used a 20t Clarke bottle jack with adaptor plate, but I have used the Treemans a couple of times.  The Treemans is definitely a nicer product, the spreader plate being attached is great but the biggest difference seems to be the amount the ram advances with each pump of the handle which on the Treemans is a lot compared to an ordinary bottle jack.  Unfortunately the price is almost prohibitive, certainly hard to justify against an off the shelf bottle jack and a plate.

 

I'm pretty sure Calum has the Treemans, the Clarke Forest and a Borntrager jack so he'd be the man to ask how they compare.
