  7. hi mark i recently bought a microbull off dave alviti with the klou log grab, grapple bucket and towbar attachment and these have all had a good use ,its probably the narrowest out there and with tracks spreads the weight out more and is far more stable than the wheeled versions on skinny wheels,the service is always fantastic and they are open to suggestions and making stuff for you etc , it is also availble to hire from them and if you buy it they refund you the hire price , good luck with whatever machine you choose ,you wont regret it
