    the 'todays job' thread

    Felling 30 pines on a development site, most trees had the roots dug out and a lot of them had a significant lean towards the highway which was well within falling distance. Removed the back weight or dismantled to a spar and pulled stems back into the site. Back tomorrow to chip and extract timber for collection with arctic

    Adding a hydraulic divertor to a digger.

    Until recently I had a timber grab with a diverter valve mounted to the side to switch from grab to rotate, it worked well enough and generally didn’t find switching between the two to restrictive. However, having just had an engcon fitted and being now able to rotate and grab at the same time does make a big difference

    My engcon got fitted yesterday and new grab turned up this morning. Waiting for my new rake with grab pocket to arrive after the weekend. It was an ex demo unit from engcon so saved a few quid on the unit very Impressed

    Crane fed chippers and brashy material

    Yes we can provide basically the same setup but with more powerful tractors

    Crane fed chippers and brashy material

    Maybe a bit more hp needed then, I fill my 12 tonne grain trailer with silage sides on in about 40 mins. Conditions of the blades make a huge difference but they are so cheap there should be no excuse to allow them to affect productivity

    Crane fed chippers and brashy material

    What hp tractor was it on? I basically run the same setup but with a t150 with roofmount crane or put it behind my 185hp Massey and feed with an excavator Big piles like that can sometimes be a pain to get through with the smaller type crane fed machine, personally I prefer to feed the chipper with a excavator and rotating grab when working with piles like that as it’s easier to pull the pile apart and sort it out a little bit though a lot can be down to the operator id be happy to come down your way if you have any more chipping jobs like that
