Game changer!!

 

Brilliant concept but way too much electrickery, buttons and gizmo`s waiting to go wrong let alone sussing it all out. If that thing went titsup and you arrived at Sendmarsh tractors with it the roller shutters would be down before you got it unloaded .:lol:

That's a Special machine and only someone Special is going to be allowed to drive it ,the word Bosses limo written all over it.

Yup. Awesome machine but looks like hipster management bait :biggrin:

Not sure if it's a pto, I think the chipper was hydraulic.

Hopefully not though.

 

the engines in the top deck of the machine i can't see a drive arrangement going down to a pto it must be hydraulic drive

Echoing others its a great idea- possibly jack of all trades much like a jcb 3cx. i expect it would make a great site machine for construction etc but i doubt it would excel in real world tree work terrain.

Just a quick update on the combining the Tiger Shear with an Exac-One cutting unit, in the hope of making the ultimate cut and hold Shear for Midi excavators.

All I can say is it performs absolutely fantastic, with a gripper that will gather material and hold anything with a vice like grip, combined with the amazing cut the Exac-One loppers have.

It was doing 10 to 14" birch straight through first time.:thumbup:

The Kubota handles the bit of extra weight no issues, and hopefully John Craig will do a mod to my Engcon this week that will allow me to have full control over either gripper or cutting unit simultaneously.

Greg did a great job on the fab work, bottles and stick welder old school.:thumb up:

 

Another mod for my next project was some temporary extra grousers on the tracks to ensure full grip on side sloping clay grassland.

However such is the battle at present Mulching, I decided to put them in early to see if they helped out.

All I can say is they put a lovely non slip finish on tarmac and have transformed the job completely, not once needing the blade for an anchor or ever pulling the machine about since.

Now it's just a case of how best to get a permanent set easily interchangeable.

Looking through the brochure, it looks like the machine has a PTO that works in a conventional way externally, but is driven by a hydraulic motor. The current Diverto manages 65hp from the PTO, so isn't going to be much of a weapon for chipping. If they take off then I'm sure that there will be growlier models.

 

It reminds me a bit of some of the tasks that Huddig can carry out :001_cool:

Like the grousers Eddie! The shear and grab is the business. It's very interesting to see people starting to put some serious operating hrs behind these bits of kit, and finding where the best combos and compromises come from :thumbup:

Thanks. You're right that most real world solutions come from the front line and simply adapting to what the Clients are asking for.

 

As for the Huddig, I've had the pleasure of operating one, and the hydraulics make any excavator I've ever operated including the Liebherr seem cable controlled by comparison.

 

You could probably make your money back on one selling hour slots to operate it in a big field!:thumbup:

I have asked for an Exac-One Shear for our 3500kg Hitatchi digger, to complement the stunningly successful hyd drive 1.5m fingerbar cutter purchased a couple of years ago, which has munched through some seriously overgrown hedges, wrist thick stuff being cut at the expense of an odd easily replaced combine cutterbar knife getting broken, with absolutly zero fuss.

I reckon, and indeed, apologies to users of this Forum, the Exac-One Hyd shear ud negate the need to bring in expensive specialist Arb subbies to cut the odd dangling broken branch in our Parkland.

cheers
