Contracting to another company to assist with felling works on a golf course. A fair bit of brash burnt and timber stacked over the last few days. The 6 tonner proving that it’s more than capable on the larger sites with a bit of methodology and a reasonable operator. All timber cut to 7 or 14ft for extraction in a couple of weeks time

6 tonne class with a full tail are such capable units.💪 Great job.

There's not a lot you can't do when there's a grab and rotator on this tb175. Lifting these 30ft lengths of windblown Ash out across this dry bog hole in our old sandstone Quarry on this beautiful Saturday. I got bogged down here the winter before last with it, after getting a bit too cocky with one of these lumps pushing me through the frozen crust. No worries this time. Using our old Thwaites as a forwarder! 02f88ea31db42205217a108190936826.jpg969680cdb59b89a13ba383a33cf48e98.jpg887cf9d7af85371811057cbed2eec8bb.jpg

Which thumb is that Conor? Who makes it, Looks quite good with a bit of a curve better for holding timber.

Company called ferrybridge. It's a great thumb, (of course I would say that, I'm so used to it now!) the geometry is measured well against the bucket, the outer teeth and thumb spikes form a pinch point and with a bit of practise you can even pick out strands of barbed wire or the farmers favourite- baler twine!
I bought the digger secondhand from the above company. They had fitted the grab when new.

Handy little addition to the digger arsenal turned up yesterday, nice strong hardox rake with grab pockets to help speed up tidying a site. DSC_0073.jpegIMG_20190430_191541_534.jpeg
