    Low impact forestry services in Devon and the South West

    Evening J Have a 840tx myself, very capable machine and with the right operator very good over the ground. Just watch out for the pins/bolsters in the racks not Komatsu’s finest quality metal and bend really easily. Check the welds on the bunk extension and if it’s been extended to fit more than 2 bays of 2.7-2.8 stay away as will cause centre joint issues. Beware in stuff like Corsican 2 bays of 2.7 chip can easily be upto 15 ton. Good luck with it.

    13ton excavator with mulcher

    The site is a slight slope then ride then steep drop off to a small stream below. The rhody isn’t big max 8-10inch but a lot off smaller material you just won’t get a tractor too or drive between medium to large maidens.

    Huski 572xp

    More than likely always is but in a new saw don’t want to cause warranty issues.

    Huski 572xp

    That was my plan as getting pissed at waiting on the 2 stroke but the dealer checked with husky technical and they strongly advise not doing this. Apparently there fuel is completely different to aspen and adding 2t oil to it won’t work. How true this is I don’t know.

    Huski 572xp

    Should get mine in day or two had it on hold at dealer for few weeks. Want to run it only on the new husky 2 stroke fuel which should be in by Wednesday this week. Was told next batch will be around mid March to all dealers.
