    hakki pilki 50

    Big difference in price extra 15k for 50 plus u would need big timber 24ton ram 12 way splitter to get the output! To justify a 50 u need to be processing a lorry load a day (hakki pilke reps words!) job to beat the 42 and hear good reports of tafjun 480... having a dealership close by is worth it’s weight & gold!!! Back up is everything!

    Hakki pilke 1x42 processor

    Got a hakki pilke 1x42 fitted with a log deck and saw dust extractor as extras which run off processor. I have bought a posch log fix screener/cleaner which run off hydraulic's (infeed & outfeed pipes) but my tractor hydraulic spools are faulty. Which part of the processor hydraulics can I tap into? Has anyone else got the same system? Running 3 pieces of equipment off the machine. Been told pump is big enough! Any help or advice be much appreciated cheers

    Tractor exhaust extraction

    Looking at a 6m length of going straight up into the roof. The roof is a corrugated concrete fibre roof so would have to make a hole. Next question would be how to stabilise the pipe as a a lot of weight on exhaust (straight pipe exhaust) and the against the roof... tractor will be staying there for 10 months of the year needed for hay making in summer

    Tractor exhaust extraction

    Can you break this down for me... from the exhaust scaffold pipe to be put on a bend so no burn out on the angle where flexi liner joins... not sure wot u mean by the last paragraph can u explain...

    Tractor exhaust extraction

    The tractor is in the middle of an 80ft by 80ft shed. The roof has vented ridges. So your saying a length of scaffold tube fitted over the exhaust with a reducer to take a 4-5 inch flexi pipe out? Been reading up on exhaust temperatures, 400/600 degrees under 60-80% pto load! Scaffold tube take that heat? The ridge gap at top of roof is only 75mm so hose would have to follow shed frame as you wouldn't want to reduce hose at the end. This is all new to me!!!
