There's a steep embankment no machine would make it up without wrecking the place. The ground is really wet and soft too. Thought about winching, but no direct line of sight.
Got a couple of strong lads though.
The only reason I'm extracting firewood is the clients wood yard is 5 miles away,
and a personal thing, I can't waste wood.

Should have got a horse to drag it as it was a bridleway.

That's not a bad idea, the ground is ridiculously uneven though and covered in stumps.
Two legs good four legs better

Just a few recent bits and bobs. In fairness I've been taking a step back off the tools, heavily reducing my climbing as the lads are able to do it. Just looking at replacing the skid steer and digger so when I'm needed I can sit on my bum and be helpful.IMG_20190308_175001_726.jpegIMG_20190308_123550_014-02.jpegIMG_20190313_135247.jpegIMG_20190308_100053_353.jpegIMG_20190312_132825_361.jpegIMG_20190312_160451.jpeg

Nice stuff.

For me the big money job this week was reducing 12 oaks in a raised garden.

In an effort to sway you  in the direction of the telescopic loader, here’s the cord being loaded over a wall direct into the back of the van.

Hi Mick,

How do you rate the Multione? I've got a demo on site next week and was curious to know your views.

I have never used an Avant or Giant or Schaefer so I can’t comment.

 

The MO very tidy piece of equipment, well built with excellent back up.

 

The plastic panels are fragile, which is a drawback in Arb work as it’s a rough tough business.

The guy on the machine in my picture is a careful operator and he has had a couple of mishaps. 

 

MO have a range of Rhino Hide panels which may help.

 

I believe articulated telescopic loaders are the best handling tool you can have, whatever the make.

Client cancelled today (wet garden) so managed to bring forward a simple enough spruce dismantle.

 

Bringing the brush down the side to the chipper was nice, as was moving the wood.

 

Heavy bit of green spruce there.
