  1. Any ibc cages for sale down south? Pm me prices and location. many thanks Steve
  2. I buy stacks measured by meters it is the length of the sack x height x length of the timber = -40% for air i believe an artic holds 28meters and some one said awhile ago that they get about 40-45 ibcs per load.
  3. Thanks I can keep them dry, take it they just bolt on a wooden pallet? I have access to a lot of pallets any way. And that is a good point of ventilation. cheers
  4. Which is better wooden base or metal base? Will the metal base dent as filling? Presumably the wooden ones are easy to repair as attach to new pallet? cheers
  5. But how many tons need to be burned to kiln dry?
  6. I've been dealing with Calum since 2014/15 and the first time I called for a part he answered the phone, said unfortunately the part was not in stock but he would rob one of the new machines that he had in stock, I ended up driving up to pick up the part, met him and he showed me around, and he gave me the impression that we are always here which he was. Every problem I had he was at the other end of the phone. called Monday and the response I got was shocking for the service I had received in the past someone who hasn't got a clue what you're saying, "I will get someone to call you back within a couple of days" still no replys, even emails. I am glad that I have 2 processors that is for sure! Was looking at the beginning of this year at the uni forest, as the service was the seller but decided to spend a bit more from someone else, glad I did. I wish him all the best on whatever adventure he has taken, sure he will do well. thanks woodworks it was the bolt on the valve I was struggling with but is all out. I left the ram in looks like you take the right bolt out on the ram and leave the other 2 and the ram drops out of the slot.
  7. Cheers John, shes out will get her off for repair tomorrow. I stuck a bar on the end and a bit of force. Shame riko couldn't advise me when I phoned them earlier, didn't realise Calum is not there any more.
  8. In the process of removing the splitting ram casing for welding, just wonder how the best way to get the bolt for the valve out of the way, as it is very tight. Any other tips on getting the casing out would be appreciated. cheers
  9. Hi Rob thanks for your feedback, I should be able to stack 4 high in the middle of the barn other wise it will be 3. When the ready to burn comes in least it will be a bit more achievable! As rotator I have seen secondhand ones around £1000 +vat I need a class 2 one as I will put it on my 2.5 forks. But unfortunately like every thing with logs it is an outlay, if it makes the job easier then it is an investment. cheers Steve
  10. Thanks woodworks, I am going to get some for next season as I think the air flow in them couldn't be any better than anything else, also should be able to keep more logs in stock. Also do they hold about 1.25 meters?
  11. Hi guys I am looking at ibc's and a rotator, I have been using vented sacks for the last 5 years, and finding that even the moscato net sacks are restricting the air flow. I have found out that ibc cages are cheap for what they are compared to spud boxes. Would love to know the pros and cons of them. They will be stored in my barn so rain on the sides wouldn't be a problem. how many logs fall out the gaps is it worth the time to cable tie mesh round the sides? how long is the lifespan? do logs go mouldy/discoloured? Will a pump truck will fit under the metal plastic pallets? any advice would be appreciated. cheers
  12. Delivered 190cube last quarter July-Sep as well as fencing all summer been on logs full time for 2 weeks now, cutting to order now it is crazy, prices gone up today and still booked up till mid week next at the moment. Compared with this time last year I am 60% up on sales, I am shocked for the demand.

      Will be in touch. Delivery I take it that would be a pallet price? 


  14. That is great, that will pay off just with time. It is encouraging to see the mean green machines are still going strong after all that time! Have pm'ed.
