A bit of a change for us today, this is Tadcaster Bridge that has a large log jam on it, the client has spent millions on rebuilding it after it was destroyed in a flood. Nice bit of winch and diving work.IMG_2829.jpgIMG_2830.jpgIMG_1975.jpg

A few from this weeks project, clearing out laurels and hollies as part of a regeneration project. We had an ecologist and wildlife inspector on site to help the works progress. Also as you can see had a few bits on demo. Honestly didn't think there was too much between the loaders. Multiones panels were much better with the rhino coating. Hope you enjoy.

It was for North Yorkshire County Council bridges, not too sure about the town council getting in contractors to remove the flotsam, the middle arch span was completely blocked by a whole tree, took best part of a day to clear it.

Let us know Ian if you would like to try the Giant too, it's all metal panels and does pivot and oscillate slightly different to the green and blue.  The closest dealers to you would be TNS.  Feel free to call and discuss 01622 845149 or email Ben at b.devine@tobroco-giant.uk 20190221_130756_resized.thumb.jpg.c25e6ca7862b1d705446144730d91124.jpg
