Three great shots I had this week from a client.

The Liebherr out to section down these Willows over a public footpath and garden, dropping down into a tight headland drop zone for further processing.

19 metres Reach up or out with the GMT050 Head on the two stage telescopic extension.

The Total Tree Control is a game changer giving fantastic hold and control.

 

A long way from the first outing with a Material handler back in the day, still on page one of this epic thread.

Didn’t say the job was this week, the client contacted me for something similar and the images came to light.

Ah ha ha, thank god - I’m out of the country and had visions of returning next week to some sort of post-apocalyptic wasteland!

I've just had a quick and nostalgic skim through the thread (not all of it mind!), and it's amazing just how far we've all come!

out with the tree shear on my jcb today. the tilt rotater really transforms the shear as you can double or triple cut if needed. I went through today and took the tops out and il go back for a couple of hours with one of my guys to cut the thicker timber with a saw and stack on the chip piles

A little outing to the Staffordshire County show yesterday, where the ARB Tree Care Menzi was getting fair attention from pretty much everyone passing.

I’m more realistic than most of what a Menzi’s abilities are in a UK setting, but quite simply if you need one, there’s nothing else that will do the job.

Interestingly they also have a custom Post Knocker setup for it, which should open up some odd applications.

 

The other stand out was this TB370 Takeuchi with Two Piece Boom and Kinshofer Nox Tiltrotator in full spec with Control System and Gripper.

 

Really does demonstrate just how far the job has come on now, when our local Takeuchi Dealer is now able to put such a setup together in house and out the door.


Lovely setup for someone, stability will be the main question asked given the spec.

 

Eddie.

Bloody good Machines now the JCB Midi range, use them and work alongside them loads.

Nice places to spend a shift and some great features.

 

Still won’t cut for shit with a Shear unless sorted.

It has been great getting a bit of work with my Hyundai 6t this year, I just have to pull my finger out and upload some footage to YouTube as I can’t see an easy way of posting videos here
