Very nice setup, who's rake are you using as hearing a vast difference in quality between suppliers


It’s a rake from BMC. I use it mainly for clearing up brash from chipping or mess around the fires so don’t do much digging roots out with it. I’d go to BMC, Lammer, Keen or James Silk. All helpful!

1st play out with the new arb digger yesterday to give the attachments a bit of a shakedown, very impressed with the whole setup.
Grapple saw needed a bit of tweeking as was to aggressive on hardwood but got that sorted and the shear worked fantastic on all the multi stem birch and Hazel we are clearing.

What carrier size is that? Looks great, very compact.

Thought it looked like it. Quite fancied one when I bought my doosan last year but there was a long wait to get one. Did you get four aux lines from manufacturer? That’s what had me looking at them. Is it stable? Went to zero tail from conventional and found a big difference even though weight charts are similar.

Yeah, I’ve found the same. Zero far more jumpy on the back track. Can’t beat a nice big ass!

i might be wrong but think that Bobcat is basically the same as your doosan- made by the same company anyway I believe.

Unless your working between tight buildings, I’ve rarely found an issue with conventional tail swing in this size bracket. 45cm overhang,  if you can’t work with that you must as well just get a smaller machine in.

unfortunaly most manufactures seem to be doing mostly zeros now, think takeuchi, Kubota and yanmar are the main 3 still offering conventional tails in 3 ton size.

Yeah, salesman said they were the same machine, hydraulic and cab changes on the new bobcat and doosan made in same factory but bobcat come first then new doosan coming later. More money in white!
