  1. Nice!! What’s the tractor? Been working with a valtra recently which looks mega. I should imagine anything between 100-150hp should be sufficient? What did the trailer hiab set up cost?
  2. Thanks Khriss. The gripe I have with telehandlers apposed to tractors is there versatility. Great for shifting big lumps of timber and chip, but a tractor can do those things to a degree. Obviously not as well, but I could put a front loader on a tractor and tow substantial weights on the back. what’s the reasons you’d choose the telehandler over a tractor? I’d love both 😂 just don’t have the funds.
  3. Hi All, I own and manage a small Arb Approved contracting business. The company like many have been very busy, and the scope for commercial contracts is growing. Currently around 70% residential, however, I’m now quoting for council contracts, woodland works and Ash Die Back. In order to be competitive I now need to invest in further kit. I’ve been considering tractor with winch and potential tipping trailer, Mewp, and a telehandler for shifting timber and Woodchip. I understand all these machines have specific uses and are very different but I need to start somewhere. Advice is welcome, thanks. cheers, Dom
