  1. Thanks for the response. That’s great, it’d just be for the extra help when the tractor has lost all traction rather than for actually moving around with. This sort is the only one available for my trailer and I’m not in the position to upgrade the whole thing just yet. Do they help when it’s loaded right up or is it more just to get yourself out when empty? I’ve seen them on one trailer but I don’t think they matched the tyre treads properly or the tyres were too worn as they just seemed to spin on the tyres rather than actually drive them.
  2. I’ve got a ten ton forwarding trailer that we use behind our Valtra. On a few of our sites recently there hasn’t been any option other than uphill extraction but as it’s just a drag trailer I’ve had to either take smaller loads or wait until the ground dries up. There is the option to add the cage type of drive system to the trailer but I’d like to hear from people who have used them first, how effective are they in the real world?
  3. Thanks for all your help. It turned out the pipes were hooked up right but one of the connectors on the tractor was dodgey, swapped it over and it works fine.
  4. Haha, no worries. It was delivered with a locking pin but we took that out.
  5. Yeah in other valtras I’ve been in the crane has to be off to use the drawbar. Tried it both ways on here but didn’t have any luck.
  6. Cheers for your responses, as you can probably tell I’m new to this side of forestry. It doesn’t work in the left hand two. One ram on the drawbar will extend if just one is piped into that side but it doesn’t when they’re both in. I’ll give those ones by the wheel arch a try tomorrow. I didn’t want to keep guessing and damage something.
  7. A bit embarrassing but I’m having a bit of trouble working out which pipes go where. I’ve just got a BMF forwarding trailer to go on the back of our valtra 6600. I’ve got the crane working from the right hand two connections (only one plugged in on the photo) and the brakes sorted I’m just having trouble with the steering drawbar. Should it not go into the two left hand connections as they are in the second photo?
  8. It’s best to get a new exhaust put on. I’ve had it happen to two 550’s, on one it made no difference and it lasted for years but on the other the bit of baffle that had come loose eventually worked its way back through the exhaust port and ruined the cylinder.
  9. We are currently looking for another team member as our workload has increased. We are based in Gloucestershire with the majority of our work being hand cutting and tractor based winching and forwarding. We are ideally looking for someone with a minimum of small fell and cross cutting tickets, any other relevant tickets and experience would be a bonus. Any experience level is welcome as long as you are enthusiastic and keen to learn. Pay is dependant on experience level but there is an opportunity for further training for the right candidate. Please call Jack on 07983602528
  10. Based in Cheltenham but we cover a decent area, give me a call and we can have a chat. Cheers, Jack

  14. Fraser Forestry is looking for a new team member. We are based in Gloucestershire and undertake all aspects of Forestry from planting and establishment to felling and extraction. Ideally looking for someone who can work full time. This role would suit someone starting off in Forestry as all kit and PPE can be provided and further training could be made available for the right person. Call 07983602528
  15. I’m looking for a tractor mounted winch and I’ve narrowed it down to the 8.5 ton tajfun or the 7.5 ton krpan, both manually operated rather than hydraulic. Does anybody have any experience with either of these? Interested to hear about reliability etc.
