  1. Hi John Thanks for your input on the Farmi, I may take you up on that offer as I’m up in North Argyll pretty regular. I’m an Engineer on CalMac small ferry fleet so always in or around Your neck of the woods. The £240 was a quote I got from a local farmer who has a processor and that was for me helping but he could only commit a few days here n there. I spoke to Stephen Cabrol at Riko who was very helpful and sent me some very detailed info on the 36. I’ll maybe get in touch with yourself after the new year and pick your brains and maybe even strike a deal[emoji106]
  2. Thanks gdh I’ve looked into hiring in but no one remotely near has one, the best quote for the 100 ton was 10 days and 2 operators at £240 per day. That’s a fair enough rate but my thinking is to maybe hire my own machine out as it’s a growing requirement here. I saw a Tajfun machine on Jas P Wilson’s site and will look into it further. Thanks for the reply[emoji108][emoji106]
  3. Evening all Im a new member and looking for your experiences with firewood processors. I live in Campbeltown (Mull of Kintyre). I have approximately 100 tons of larch/Sika no thicker than 12 inch, and looking for your opinions on the best processor. I’ve spoke to Rico about a Farmi 36 and Caledonian Forestry about a Palax Ks45. I’m open to chainsaw or blade, PTO or Honda engine driven(trailer) but not electric. I’d be interested in any for sale on here and welcome your views👍
