    Ahh I see thanks for that! I new I had heard of a conversion but wasn’t sure it would be the right thing to do or not.

    Farmi-harvester bar

    Anyone running a farmi processor with the harvester bar and chain? Any better/worse? Worth the extra money?

    Storing logs in piles

    Just wondering if anyone does or has processed all there stock a year in advance then store in a shed just in a big loose pile? This is what I'm thinking of doing as I have a large barn which I use for firewood that's dry and properly vented but am worried the logs in the middle will go mouldy. The wood going in would have been felled 12 months and be a mix of ash, beech and silver birch. I currently only do about 100 tones a year so it would all fit in the shed if pushed up.

    advice on what processor to buy

    Speak to Jim at Riko about a farmi I can't speak highly enough of mine, I'm on my second machine from them now as traded up from the 30 to the 36. The infeed seems so uncluttered compared to other makes which makes it so much easier to get twisty and bent timber in. Jim is on here so hopefully he will see your post. Hope this helps.

    wanting processor hire gloucestershire

    If it's all straight and easy stuff if you worked on roughly a tone an hour that's what we usually average. I'm stacked out at the moment but I have a mate from nympsfield who would probably be able to get there before I could if you want his number I can pm it to you.

    wanting processor hire gloucestershire

    Where abouts in glos are you? Do you want to hire with operator or with out?
  15. As beechwood says the best thing I ever bought was a grab and rotator to go on my 5tonne 360, load 10foot cords of 16" diameter straight onto the processor and anything bigger onto horizontal splitter then pick the billets up and stack in the shed ready for processing on a rainy day. If you have 25k to spend then you could buy a decent second hand 360 for £7000-£8000 then kit it up with a grab and rotator for another £1000.
