  1. Hi, sorry, our existing trailer weighs 7.5 T unladen and can carry a maximum of 8 T so 15.5 T fully loaded, in reality we carry much less. The reason for the 3 T lifting capacity is we move some very large timber and normal grabs can't cope with the diameter, we need to remove fallen trees quickly from the carriageway during storm conditions and this peice of kit has proved invaluable over the years. We also occasionally mill our own timber with a lucas mill and it is obviously better to keep the timber in as long a peice as possible. Yes i do have to justify what i spend, but i also have to open blocked strategic routes and other roads as quickly as i can as part of our 24 hour stand by requirement to have all roads opened within a two hour time frame. Thanks, Kevin. If you are interested in looking at our timber for sale and are passing Cardiff you are more than welcome to have a look at our wood store.
  2. Hi all dealers and manufacturers out there, Cardiff Council are looking to replace our Timber trailer and crane but we are having difficulty finding anything man enough for the job. Our existing machine was specially built to order for us many years ago. We are looking for something similar to the attached photo, minimum 3 Tonne lifting capability with large timber grabs, 2 or three axle, approx 14 Tonne trailer capacity with closed sides. Any help would be very much appreciated Kevin Matthews, Arb Manager Cardiff council.
