  1. Nearing decision time on a new splitter - which will be a tractor mounted vertical. It'll be used out in the forest and at home so PTO is an obvious necessity, however I'm just debating on whether it's worth also getting the electric motor option also. The thinking being quieter when at home, independent from any tractor breakdowns and also future proofed for if diesel use becomes an issue in future years. As the splitter is an expensive purchase and one to last a lifetime, the latter point is probably most important behind the thought but just wondering whether I'm over thinking/worrying about something that might not happen and whether it warrants the extra cost (approx 1k) of the elec option 🤷‍♂️. Thoughts welcome and also whether anyone has experience of tractor mounted PTO splitters with the elec option and how much they use it? From the data when in elec mode it's considerably slower than when run by the tractor!
  2. does anybody have a holder a60 crank and possibly a flywheel as well? i am majorly struggling with the old girl, i am thinking if i cannot find a crank and flywheel then if anyone has any information on doing an engine swap with a perkins, cummins, land rover or anything which may be of help thanks ed.
  3. Fed up with getting my Ford 4000 tractor stuck in the mud so think something with 4WD would be suitable. I've found a Same Explorer 80 and a Massey 590 for about the same price (both with loaders). Head says Massey but heart says Same. It's just for simple mowing, logsplitter and rolling. My Ford has a loader and I'm used to having it around to shift bits and bobs about
  4. Evening, looking into buying a cheap kubota b1400 tractor from a local bloke, and although I am confident it will run my saw bench, will it have enough power and weight to be able to lift my thor supermajic 18t pto splitter? Looking for a small tractor which would be my own, and at the same time be handy for manoeuvring chipper etc on larger work sites, and this is local and within budget. thanks
  5. Last night here rains about 20 cm snow... [ame] [/ame]
  6. Today I drive some firewoods for sauna with My David Brown 1290 tractor.. [ame] [/ame]
  7. Desperate for help, I have a Holder a60 tractor with major issues, the piston closest to the cab has sheared of the bottom piece of Conrod and top piece has jammed the crank tight, block is sound and valve rods are fine, I no I need a Conrod and possibly a crank, praying it hasn't twisted, does anybody have any experience taking holder engine apart, I no I can get bits for her from lamberhust eng but the prices of these little German gems are astronomically massive, if anybody has any parts or an engine for a60 I would be eternally grateful!!
  8. Morning all We have a lot of oak a get away from site. two trees, the largest being approx 2m DBH. we have a tractor with medium sized grab with a trailer so can deliver, but needs to be as close to site a possible as I'll have to do multi trips and it is not a fast tractor! If you have a big grab and trailor set up then your more than welcome to take the lot, or as much as you like. Any questions please ask. Or any ideas of who might be interested welcome. PM me with a phone number and I'll call you back. thanks for you time. Ed

  13. Morning all, I'm looking to get an alpine tractor and timber trailer to allow us to start extracting from a few small woodland sites in Buckinghamshire. It's all very small scale work (<50t a year) on SSSI sites which means we're limited to low impact kit and access only during dry periods. I'm looking at the AGT850TR and COT30-470 3t timber trailer combination at the moment, from Riko. But I am new to forestry work and was hoping to get some advice! I was thinking of putting 300/65-12 tyres on the trailer along with a crane winch and band tracks as we're on heavy clay and anything to spread the weight will be useful! Anyone's thoughts on this setup would be really appreciated along with anything else to consider. Thanks all!
  14. Hi All, This is my first post. I'm looking to change tyres on my Holder A50. They are size 400/60x17.5 (front) and 400/60x15.5 (rear). They are a wide turf-type tread (sometimes referred to as 'dog leg' tread). I was hoping to change tyres to an agricultural type tread pattern, more suitable for working in the woods. Unfortunately there seems to be no manufacturers producing agricultural tread tyres for rims of this width. So. . . can anyone help out? Either with a wheel and tyre swap. Or with any leads on manufactures that produce a deeper tread tyre at this size. Cheers, Luc
  15. Hi We are, after many months of discussion, we are due to embark on a new business venture selling biomass fuels... From pellets to logs....we are negotiating on a site in north devon, and hoping that it will complete soon... Obviously we need everything... Wood processor tractor forklift etc etc.... What do people out there suggest... Particularly for the processor.... Looked at most... Duun hakki Pilki, jappa... All look very much the same... It would be down to what is likely to work best for us... Anyone have any suggestions on which is best and recommendations for all other stuff needed.... Cheap supplies of vented bags is a must find at. A reasonable price too...so much to buy so little time..... Stu Baillie 07543248916
