In the market for a new splitter, dont quite do enough to warrant a processor, plus the 6k or less machines seem slow and flimsy,also I have a reasonable amount of large timber which would be too big for a processor. I have always prodded on with my Wallenstien but now it's old and needing replaced so I'm wanting something similar but better. Anyone know of any splitter with a fast cycle, as the return on most is painfully slow, I'd rather not go kinetic for longevity. The Eastern made spliters look good if a bit pricey, but cant find any in the uk. Thanks.
Sorry this might have been done to death but can't find much in a search. Might be changing our tracked 230, roughly 5 years old now, had many problems when we first had it, and is in to fix some problems now. It was handled badly the first time round and there's radio silence from them so far this time I wanted to talk to them. I've had tw's since they were entecs but Its put me off tw to be honest so looking at other brands. In fairness the 230 chips well and punches above its 6inch capacity, so I think I'd have to look at 8 inch machines to not feel ive taken a step back. Forst is the brand I would go for, but I've started hearing that companies that had moved to forst are going back to tw. What is the current consensus on these brands at the moment. Stg5 compliance throws another set of questions, dpf in the larger hp petrol forst at 8 inch vs the 24hp diesel in the 230. (Weve had a road tow 230 on hire recently and there's a slight difference in performance vs the old 35hp kubota but not enough to get upset about in my mind). So probably the worry is the dpf. Thanks all
