A few minor running repairs to our Unimog on a Saturday

Just routine works, but the cab needed to be jacked up for access.

This is our Unimog with a woodchipper on the back with a 1.5-ton capacity.  So, who can remember the origin of this odd name?

“The Unimog is a range of multi-purpose auto four-wheel drive medium trucks produced by Mercedes-Benz, The word is an acronym for the German “UNIversal-MOtor-Gerät”, Gerät being the German word for a device (also in the sense of machine, instrument, gear, apparatus)”.   There, you needed to know that!

Our new 25.6m Cherry Picker (MEWP)

Our new 25.6m Articulated Truck Mounted Platform/4×4 MAN truck has arrived and is available for hire should you need some extra height.

It has a huge outreach of some 12.5m and full details may be found on our website shortly.

Our shorter 14m cherry picker (the yellow one) is better for work in confined spaces where the lorry base of this new one would be too big.

Both are available for hire.

New Evo Compact

We picked up our new Evo Compact this morning to help the busy fencing teams and set it straight to work… collected,  unloaded and knocking posts in under 2 hours!

This is a smaller, more compact machine which allows us to transport it between sites behind a 4×4.  A miniature version of our Protech Evo 2.

Valtra fitted with cab-mounted botex crane

To reduce manual handling and speed up timber and brash removal, we have added another Valtra tractor to the fleet, this time fitted with a roof-mounted Botex crane.

Our new Valtra is now ready for work with our tree teams –  or for hire if anyone wants any help extracting large timber.

This will also be able to power the mulcher and will be better suited as it is fitted with full forestry guarding to protect it against the rigours of contracting.
