  1. Yeah, but the other bits are what make it work seamlessly and would take a while to make yourself. Plus it's galvanised. Now you've got me looking at mills!! Is there any money in it?
  2. Hang on a minute. I might be tipsy, but... You say you're concerned about the uniformity of the end product, yet you log up with a chainsaw and the log hanging off the end of a digger!! At least a processor sets the length of cut for you! Have I missed something? Or is it all about the split? 😉 Also, now you have a grab- set it up to work off the tractor forklift and save yourself digger hire costs.
  3. You're pragmatic and honest about the realities of your situation, I like that. Though selling wholesale, I wouldn't be quite so anal about the quality of your product.
  4. https://woodlandmills.co.uk/product/hm126-track-extension/ Had a look. To be fair, £270 seems pretty reasonable for that.
  5. Best to knock them over before they get really brittle, otherwise it's not much fun standing underneath them as you fell them.
  6. I'm near you and I'm advising clients to leave ash to take their chances also. No point reducing to have to fell a few months later. It's really bad around here.
  7. German made? If you believe that then I have a bridge to sell you! 😉
  8. The thing with the mini skid loaders is that they look handy- but they're always without fail on their tiptoes, looking hard to control when you see YouTube videos. Has anyone a link to a video of them in use where the operator looks in control, doing repeated cycles?
  9. I don't think there are even different grades of adblue. Sounds like bullshit to me. ADBLUE: HOW IT AFFECTS YOUR FLEET | fuelGenie WWW.FUELGENIE.CO.UK Fleet managers are feeling the effects of AdBlue top-ups: and with most fleets running diesel vehicles also requiring... "AdBlue is a proprietary name, like Hoover and iPhone: i.e. there are not different types or brands of AdBlue, though there may at any time be different brands selling other urea-based solutions that perform the same function."
  10. You can move a heck of a lot more with a 1.5t and grab than you can by hand! Great for stacking timber and loading brash onto fires.
  11. Then you won't go wrong with a mini digger and grab rather than a chipper.
  12. If you don't then you've screwed up.
