Very cool trailer, I remember seeing 1 that A C Price made years ago behind a big mog.
  They were side tip, can you empty yours without removing chipper?
No unfortunately it's rear tip but dropping the chipper is only a few min, putting it back on is a little more tricky but once I fit the camaras this week it should be a lot easier but as long as you have a spotter it wasn't bad doing it last week.

Stick some heavy duty trolley wheels on the chipper and if your on hard standing the groundies can push it on like a Tesco trolley!😀

Put a hinge on it so you can swing it out alongside the trailer to tip then swing it back after.

It's 2.2ton of mettle, sod that when have you ever had a tesco trolly go where you wanted it to with just a loaf of bread in! we just give it a gentle nudge with the digger blade if I'm struggling to get perfection.
Going to fabricate some sort of A frame so you can get near as dam it and nudge back to line up and just lift to slot the two halves together.

Standard A frames for front mounted mo-Co's should be plenty man enough. Sure BRM would get you one.

Little bobcat getting worked hard last week feeding nearly 100 ton into the chipper and stacking a estimated 50ton of timber on a clearance job, love this machine for taking so much work out of the job.

What model bobcat is that and which grab? How do you find it?

Ha ha never thought of that, it’s been so long since I drove a shopping trolley thankfully.
