What trailer for tracked chipper (tw230)

Recommended Posts

It's excellent thanks Scott, very happy with it. You?

Here are some pics of the trailer, I think it is the same as Scotts. I can get the HB20 on the back no probs. [ATTACH]199478[/ATTACH][ATTACH]199479[/ATTACH][ATTACH]199480[/ATTACH]

I was lucky enough to get this off eBay as I looked around for ages for one.

 

Yes same trailer as mine, mine has Fountains where the timberwolf is on yours. Ye love the chipper can't really fault it mate couldn't go back to a 150 now.

Hi Dean,

I know a guy that had drama's with the low profile tyres that come on the Brian James trailer like the one that Tim trees posted. The sidewalls seemed to get damaged really easy. Try to get standard wall thickness tyres like the ones on hodges trailer.

What local dealer are you talking about, there's a williams dealer in llandeilo by the towy bridge,

I know, some jobs I've been doing I will say to the lads imagine this with the 150 and we just laugh, it is a big improvement but I have a lot to thank the 150 for, so I guess it's just my choppers evolving ;)

Know exactly what you mean. There really is no comparison between the 150 and the 230 though!

bank farm trailers in Swansea - they said that they've had a falling out with IW over spares availability.... there possibly more to it, two sides to every story etc.

 

I like the look of these tilt beds though - brian james current version seems to be the 'cargo all plant' and seems to be available with low sides and mesh kit and bucket rest as an option, which could be handy.

I've got an iw tipper and did consider putting ramps on and using that, could be useful for getting an additional load away from some jobs (though would still have to return for chipper) - but concerned about COG, and too high to feed the chipper from in any case.

thanks guys

 

I'm at home now, couldn't use the search function on my phone earlier for some reason.

 

they do look good, but I may need it to be able to carry out other duties too. carrying the odd log, stump grinder.

 

also looking at the possibility of having to carry a small 1.5 t digger.

 

can I fit one on a gd model due to having to accommodate the arm vs draw bar length?

am I asking it to do something it just cant do?

 

thinking at the mo that a shift to a 10 ft general purpose might allow me to spread the weight of the chipper on the bed better.

 

I have a similar dilemma, were getting sides made to cope with the issue so can carry arisings and log wood when needed.
