  1. Rivet and stick on some ally channel now to uprights and bottom then drop in your ally planks? What I did
  2. Only thing I don't like about the 40 series is all the electrics and switches etc, big filters and wiring all exposed underneath. That said I have just bought a turbod new Holland 7840 to replace the mf399.... In comparison thought he 399 has a fuel tank up top on front so weight over front wheels. Next to no electrics and nothing really on show to rip off. 40 series need some decent guarding underneath! I'm going to have to do something to mine for when mulching!
  3. You going to do much road work at all with it? Seen quite a few older Massey's for forestry work
  4. You talking in relation to the TM Matty?
  5. Won't be long till I retire my tree Austria... Pretty poor that the buckles are brass and alloy etc... Having the latches on the buckles seize up constantly due to supposed corrosion between the surfaces where the latches are. Only just over 2 years old aswell Back to a full fat tree motion next. Had a TM light before and it was aweful. TM full fat was a great harness!
  6. I've seen often wondered about them big old towable Vermeer grinders for this kind of work? You know which I mean?

Going to try arborisk again at some point but remember that they wanted a wheel clamp on your chipper at all times when on site! Any other firms worth a shout?
