Alpine tractor talk

Recommended Posts

There are days when I wish my Antonio Carrara had a cab and was slightly bigger (I’m 6’4”). Tried a Reform Mounty recently and it ticks lots of boxes...

Articulated or front steer- What are people’s preferences for alpines. Which is the most manoeuvrable? Im looking at reverse steer, and would be mostly grass cutting/ flailing.

 

How is the Antonio Carraro regarded?

Antonio Carraro are a well regarded make. I had a small articulated Goldoni and now I have a front steer pasquali. I went front steer as it allows me to have a front loader and can be more stable on a steep slope. However driving the articulated one was more fun!

I'm looking to fit a loader to my BCS Volcan 750. Obviously no where is open, but I've emailed Kilworth for prices etc.  My question is do any other loaders fit and what attachments do people find the most use?  I was thinking a bucket with grab for brash and timber (possibly based on forks) and a 4 way bucket for chip.

 

Cheers

Here's my alpine. BCS Volcan 950 dual steer, 91hp.

Not fully put it through its paces yet as I spent all me budget in the tractor! Just got a fork lift for it and have some duals and a flail on order.

Next step is a winch and a timber trailer when I've saved my pennies.

Available for hire with an operator if anyone is interested.f3138f35fcaf02618503bb317cfc7da0.jpg32401295486244be7277d9bfa0ac8a0c.jpg

Nice, I'd be interested to see how you get on with the duals.

Depends on year, hours, service history but tractor alone would be between £8 to £10k

If it helps as a starting point for finding a figure, I felt like I got a good deal paying £13500 (+VAT) for an AGT 835 Forestry with uniforest 35M and Zanon 1.2m flail. just under 70 hours on the clock.
