  1. It is what it is I'm afraid. No way around it on the new big kit. You are probably aware the 19-28 is no longer available new and the replacement is the EVO205 which is tier 5 from the off. There is no doubt about it, Kubota build brilliant engines. So of all the small plant engine manufacturers they've probably got the best chance of getting it right.
  2. I will look at writing some for other models in due course.
  3. Thanks Mick! Written off the cuff this morning Ashley
  4. Hi folks, I have produced a free used buying guide for the GreenMech SafeTrak 19-28 MK2 wood chipper. Feedback welcome. Thanks. SafeTrak 19-28 MK2 buying guide.pdf
  5. Whilst on the subject, the new GreenMech EVO 165 26hp diesel will out perform the old GreenMech Arb 150 34hp. But the Evo diesel isn't 750kg. The flywheel is over twice the weight compared to Arb 150. If you want high performance diesel your best bet is to do your towing ticket. If you want 750kg and diesel you have to be prepared its going to be a little slower now.
  6. Used kit is thin on the ground currently due to long manufacturing lead times. How come you’re looking at an 8” tracked machine now over a 6” road tow. Repair and running costs are very different between the two.
  7. You can go very wrong on ex rail kit due to the environments they naturally work in. Radiators often don’t get blown out, servicing can sometimes be lacking and usually plenty of make do and mends to keep the chipper going that end up being permanent. Especially if they largely live track side and never get back to the workshop. We do a lot of work on Safetraks. And have reconditioned plenty too. Happy to write you a check list.
  8. Thanks for your business Ben. Hope the machine is going well
  9. Here is an Arb 150 we just finished today. We fitted a new flywheel, wheels, hitch, lights, mudguards, re powder coating etc. Advertised at £8,500 ex vat and sold within 30 mins. A during and almost finished photo.
  10. It was a genuine 40 hours. I (Ashley) sold the machine when I used to work for the old GM dealer TH White back in the day. It was a property company that purchased it and was hardly used. They rang up to see if we could go down, service it etc so it could be advertised for sale. I asked to buy it directly which is what we did. You could tell the hours were genuine as the original paint was still on the flywheel and all the fixings still looked like new due to being dry stored.
  11. The EVO 205 57hp petrol isn't in the price book yet. The Arborist 200 is still available to order with the 57hp engine. Not really comparing apples with apples as its two different machines, but the Tier 5 EVO 205D is 2k more than the Arb 200 petrol.
  12. Skarper C120 in part ex. 25 hours old. 2020 build. £3,995 plus vat.
  13. CS80 & CS100 both in stock here currently 😁
  14. You are probably referring to Bonfiglioli. Although most pumps on wood chippers are from Italy.
  15. Check out the CS80. Same machine as the CS100 just fitted with the smaller 12hp Loncin lump. Knocks a grand off the sales price... And we have one in stock!🤪
