  1. Hey All. Couldn’t access my old login so have opened a new account. I run a contractor business in Bristol. We had our Timberwolf 230DHB stolen yesterday. Team took their eyes off it for less than 15 minutes. Hooked up to the truck but not locked. TIMBERWOLF 230DHB Chipper. Serial No. : 35A6KS209187 If anyone is offered one for sale in the Bristol area or anywhere, please check the serial number (if it hasn’t been removed). The level of hate I have for these types cannot be described.

  6. I have a number of 'bits of wood' I'd either like to sell / get rid of or have milled up into usable timber for me - or whatever 'you' can come up with. If all else fails, it's firewood for my biomass boiler to heat my home - so it won't go to 'waste' as such. All measurements are approx and based on diameter, not circumference. All are in Upleadon, Gloucestershire, GL18 1EE. Some are 'roadside' (the freshly felled oak) and the rest are in our garden but probably accessible by telehandler or other lifting/moving equipment - or can be milled in situ if you have the kit (ie sawdust is fine!) Poplar - approx 17m long, felled approx Feb 2016, max dia - 80cm, min dia 40cm. Quite a bit of it is off the ground (due to the sawn off limbs) but some is in contact with the ground.
