  1. Another vote for Loglogic’s Softrac. Very versatile and easy to use machine. Used them for off-road deliveries to site and spraying under power lines.
  2. This item is SOLD

    • FOR SALE
    • NEW

    THIS IS AN AS NEW SAW, I’VE NEVER USED IT ANGER, ALTHOUGH I HAVE STARTED IT, ON ASPEN, JUST TO TRY IT OUT! I HAD GRAND IDEAS ABOUT MILLING WHICH NEVER WORKED OUT, SO THE SAW IS FOR SALE. IT HAS A 36” BAR AND .404 CHAIN, IT WILL ALSO COME WITH A MILLING CHAIN. I WOULD LIKE £1000, NO VAT PAYABLE. THE SAW IS IN SOUTH CUMBRIA AND WOULD PREFER COLLECTION, BUT WILL PACKAGE AND SEND AT THE BUYERS COST IF NECESSARY. PLEASE CONTACT ME HERE.

    £1,000.00

  3. Evening all. Didn’t realise the 880 was history. I have one as new, never used, did start it once on Aspen just to feel the power. Bought the saw to start milling with, but that never materialised. So, although it has been started, it has never seen any timber, does that make it secondhand? Maybe it’s time to sell?
  4. Roughly 14 years ago Fountains were using Wessex tracked chippers on the railway. They developed a jacking system to get over the loading problem. Once the chipper was in the 4 foot, insert the jacks, based on HGV trailer jacks, raise it then push the trolley under, and lower the chipper. They were a bit cumbersome, but did the job.
  5. Simon Dack at Northwest Training Services, can provide a basic course, which I think would cover you. Contact numbers are, 07880 750870 or 01942 233361.
  6. Well done Steve for organizing the raffle again. However, I can't seem to get the link to work:confused1:. Does anyone have any suggestions?
  7. Thanks for posting that. Brought a smile to my face.
  8. Thanks Maxwellarb, Trailer parts were very helpful. Replacement 5 stud hubs to fit the existing axles are available, at a price! £113 +vat each. I'll have to seriously think if I can justify the cost.
  9. I'll try Trailer Parts, thanks for the contact. The rock/ruts/stumps is exactly why I would like to try raising the ride height. The trailer hitch for the tractor is on the 3point linkage, so it does allow you to "walk" the trailer to a certain extent, over obstacles you can't avoid.
  10. Thanks for the response. The idea is to use the tractor in the wood, and Land Rover on the road. I tried a wheel against the trailer and there looks to be clearance? Spacers wouldn't be to much hassle, I was hoping some one out there would know of a 4 stud wheel which would fit onto the existing hubs.
  11. I'm looking for expertise/solution to a problem. I want to improve the ground clearance on a TT85 trailer, by fitting 16" wheels to take Land Rover tyres. The options look like new axles, new brake drums, or hopefully easiest, new 4 stud 16" wheels. What do you think?
  12. Took mine via LD Lines (Newhaven/Dieppe) last year no problems at all. However they don't like you taking too much fuel in cans, just bought over there (cheaper as well).
