Binderberger H10 Log Splitter - Stolen in Durham

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

This is my first post to this forum so a quick hello straight off.

 

Secondly, we had a Binderberger H10 KOMBI model H00H10KB (http://www.binderberger.com/cms15/components/com_virtuemart/shop_image/product/H10_Kombi_486b53f11c1ce.jpg) stolen from our house in North Durham (near Lanchester) on 21st May, 2010.

 

I have a vague recollection that it was originally supplied by Marshall Agricultural Engineering and had a sticker of theirs on the machine.

 

The splitter was distinctive for the fact that the small jockey wheel at the back (ie not the two large wheels shown in the picture) had shattered which rendered the machine immovable without great difficulty.

 

If anyone's seen anything like it, I'd be very interested to know.

 

Thanks,

David

Well thats answered a question for me. I had been intending to do a thread asking if log splitters are prone to theft with the obstacle of their weight and size. Sorry to hear of your misfortune its going to make me lock mine up each night now.

Yes Dave, the weight doesn't seem to stop them - we've had the main depot done 3 times in around 18 months and they've tried unseuccessfully at least twice that we know about. Bearing in mind the only way stuff can leave the yard now is over the fence/gates (or ram stright through) and everything is far enough away to be reached by a normal sized lorry crane, they have to move everything by hand - and they still do. We had an 18 tonne PTO one go out of the yard - that weighs around 400kg! Ba****ds

Hi dave, when I saw the post I had a bad feeling it would be you, I'm sorry to hear this and if i'm offered your machine will certainly let you know. I did think when we worked at your place the machine was vulnerable, I should of mentioned something hope you get it back,

 

Lawrence.
