    Processors? What are you using ?

    As the title states I’m in the market for a new processor, not wanting to spend too big but reasonable, looking at maybe the Hakki Pilke 137 expert ? Anyone running one interested to hear the good and the bad

    Towing in the snow !!!

    I went out with my ifor tipper and ranger yesterday afternoon and was traveling down a bank towards a petrol station on a good main road and a car pulled in and the van in front of me just stopped in the road, I took evasive action to avoid but came into contact with my wing mirror on a l200 coming the other way , thought I was ok when I got stopped but the back corner of the loaded trailer that had pushed me down the hill had took out most of the wing on the l200. Moral of the story in snow lies d the trailer in the yard !!!

    Delivering firewood

    I’m using a ford ranger wildtrak double cab pick up with led rear lights for those evening deliveries, ifor Williams tt3017 tipper so I can do pick up load , half tipper or full tipper or all 3 , and I’ve got a Clio van which I run the nets and coal to the shops I sell too, with a tow bar fitted that can also tow the ifor Williams p7e fitted with mesh sides so can take 2 builders bags with a proper fitted cover for when it’s raining. Looking to do more shop deliveries so may change the van for a transit connect type vehicle so more capacity than the Clio. I find offering different size of loads helps me sell more.

    Kindling/ log splitting machine

    Thanks for a very helpful review there. What length rings do you supply it with ? On the kindling side of things what do you feed it ? The products look very good thanks.

    Which splitter

    I use a 16ton split vertical hydraulic splitter with a big table waist heaight to work at. Brilliant machine and fast in the right hands. It’s a 3 point linkage tractor job but I’ve mounted it on a pallet to move it around and run it from a jcb power pack. The splitter was £1000 brand new and the power pack £300 off eBay second hand. Well worth the money both of them. Rob
