Hello Everyone, just a quick hello to all the Tree surgeons and Woodland owners out there, after 2 + years of designing and testing the micro arb truc & it bespoke attachments coupled with our launch of the Micro Arb Truc at the 2012 APF show we now feel it`s time to join arbtalk.

 

I would like to thank our tree surgeon customers for their invaluable help in sharing the problems they have faced for many years in extracting/handling timber in it`s various forms from difficult site applications which has enabled myself to design and build useful narrow access attachments

 

I noticed another thread from some time ago mentioning the similarity to the muck truck. Yes, the base unit is the Max version of a muck truck, to explain I have been supplying that product for many years to construction & landscaping as a basic unit through our parent company Fresh group, knowing the capabilities of the base unit I saw the potential to design my own bespoke micro arb attachments, hence we have promoted the whole range as "Micro Arb Truc product range". Sorry for any confusion this may have caused.

 

If anyone has any questions/comments please feel free to contact myself (Keith Douglas)

I have used the muck truck in the past, its a good tool except for the finish

 

Powder coat on the tinworks sheared edges, doesn't take well and the truck was a rusty disgrace within 2 years.

 

Get the edges "fettled" or change the coating

Just a thought judging from the second picture. It looks like the handles could be a bit low for the taller tree surgeons.

Thanks Tony, John tells me you boys fight over the arb truck! lol

 

The base unit is the latest max version of a muck truck, our customer feedback has been very good, we have supplied a number of tree surgeons who have all been very happy. The micro arb truck (drive unit Max Dumper) with it`s arb attachments has been developed specifically for tree surgeons and woodland owners, please note that the original 250 kgs muck truck is a lighter weight machine and not so robust, take a look at our website MICRO ARB TRUC| Image Gallery

 

For a full pricelist please email me on keith@microarbtruc.co.uk

I notice the drive is direct to the tyres(as m/t) when the tyres are muddy does this not effect the drive performance?
