MEWPs or Cherry Pickers

We have now added a 3rd MEWP to our fleet.

It’s a Tracked Teupen 23GT with a working height of up to 23m – compact but with a great working height.

It’s ideal for quick, efficient jobs. It is especially suited for job sites that provide little space and require great working heights. It has a variable and quick multi-position stabilising system, 180-degree rotatable basket and flexible, articulated boom.   For full details please see here

Savernake Forest post installation for the Forestry Commission

The first task on our new Forestry Commission fence framework contract for the SW of England:  installing posts to prevent cars from being parked on the access roads in Savernake Forest.
The Forest stands on a Cretaceous chalk plateau between Marlborough and Great Bedwyn in Wiltshire; its area is approximately 4,500 acres.

See details of some of the other types of fencing work we undertake here.

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.
