    Box rotator wanted

    Hi there Gdh. Yes I understand weights but mine is a old jcb 406 which picks up 1.5 ton ish so I reckon rotator about 500kgs max ? And crate of logs 400-500kgs max when dry ? I’ve luckily just found a forklift with rotating forks on it ready to go so bought the whole outfit

    Box rotator wanted

    Oh right I hadn’t heard of this , I’ve found some of the rotating pallet forks on eBay from the link above, I don’t believe they work off a central bearing looking at that type one. But either way I don’t want to spend 3-4-5 k on one. There’s new ones on eBay from broadwater but they are still best part of 3k. Rob

    Thinking of investing in ibcs

    I have a barn too , so the outside ones are getting processed ready for next winter so they will go in the barn once the 100 cube or so empty’s out of the shed, luckily I can access both ends of my shed so I can start one end whilst still putting more in the other end. Rob

    Thinking of investing in ibcs

    Hi there been using ibcs for about 12 months now and really sing they’re praises. I stack mine 2 high outside and cut the tanks corner to corner to make the hats to cover the top of the second crate. I currently have about 50 outside full. Also to add I processed some green ish chestnut about 6 weeks ago straight into the crates and stacked up as above, tested it yesterday as it was looking quite dry and was reading 20 percent. More summers like this the better. On the rotator side of things I’m looking to invest in one but they are rather expensive, 4300 for a new one from agriweld I was quoted this week. Rob

    Mobile Log Splitting

    Hi there. I do mobile splitting, I’ve got a 16 ton splitter that I put on my trailer and take to farms and tree surgeons alike and charge £25 p h for me and splitting then put another £15 p h for second man and chainsawing. I do 4 local farms and 2 tree surgeons but I struggle to get to them as I’m so busy on my own wood. There is money to be made , put some feelers out with local tree surgeons/ farms / estate owners see if anyone wants any doing before investing. I upgraded my splitter 2 years ago and I could probably sell it now for 3/4 what I paid for it and buy a new one with profits from just the mobile jobs. Hope this helps. Rob

    arb waste processor

    Look into the fuelwood splitta mate , I’m tempted by them as I get a lot of oversized stuff, you feed the rings in one end and it keeps chugging along automatically splitting the logs.
