    What machine you running that on John as been looking at that exact model, how do you find it being able to sweep both ways through thick bramble and scrub. It’s on a Volvo ec55c im very happy with it, one way obviously cuts better than the other but just the way of it

    2.5 tonne Kubota, he’s only used it a couple of times. I’ve got the larger te80rev forestal on my machine so tends to get me to do bits as and when they come up, plus he wants to get a little dumper instead

    How are the veggies coming along?

    Can’t remember what they were, I put them in the tunnel under hay in October/November but nothing really happened with them. Cleared the hay away in January and topped up the beds with compost ready for planting this spring. Anyway the potatoes came up but I need the space in the tunnel now so had to dig them up

    I’ve got a 12 by 20 tunnel I water with a sprinkler system in the evenings and make sure I leave at least one door open during the day

    Contracting to another company to assist with felling works on a golf course. A fair bit of brash burnt and timber stacked over the last few days. The 6 tonner proving that it’s more than capable on the larger sites with a bit of methodology and a reasonable operator. All timber cut to 7 or 14ft for extraction in a couple of weeks time

    Mulcher for 6 tonne excavator

    I’d put the smaller head on personally, I honestly don’t think productivity wise a slightly larger head will speed things up, it’s more likely to bog down in stuff. I’d go for the 80 on that machine
