    Botex big foot

    My red rock weighs about 4 ton, used to pull that with a 95hp 6400. I think you’ll be fine. Once loaded you might slow down a bit though..

    Only joking.. I'll take anything I can get.. I'm desperate... and as the years advance my modelling career is on the wane.

    Topping TPO'd pops...

    Stupid spec, topped pops always go rotten, and really quickly. One day there will be a court case where damage was caused by a topped tree failure.. and whoever specked it will be held liable.. I’ve seen topped pops rotten to the base within 10 years.

    Got our wee machine plumbed and wired up last week. I think she’ll be handy.

    Electric joysticks for botex

    I have them, they are really good, take a wee bit of getting used to after the valve ones. Mine have been on the crane since it was fitted. My old crane had valve controls. I wouldn’t go back.

    TW125 stolen in Kent

    Scum. Ask all the dealers to check when someone orders a chute.

    Remote control for pto chipper

    Ac price built one on to my Heizohack, I have control over feed / reverse, top roller lift / push down, rotate discharge chute, tilt deflector on discharge chute, and an on off switch. Its is very handy, but I dread to think what I paid for it. @John Shutler might know, as I think he was pricing it up for his machine.

    Up to yer nuts in it thread

    I rescued these two diggers last week, had to get the 5 tonner out to make a bed for the log mat to rescue the 13 tonner. It took both my winches and 2 snatch blocks to get it out. 20 ton combined pull.
