Hi All
Im predominantly a tree contractor based in the new forest undertaking site clearance, forestry and woodland work. I run various tractors and diggers as an owner operator. Just waiting for my new machine to turn up which is a JCB 65r1 with engcon and 600mm wide steel tracks
cheers

Ooo now that sounds like a tasty spec machine. I've just started a new contract in Barton on Sea. If the developer ever gets his act together I might need some trees removing, will give you a shout.

Well, it is a small world! Carolyne is standing in for me until I can start next week. Speak soon, I want to get that place tidied up and will need all the help I can get. That JCB is a dream setup for me. Hope she serves you well.

Be interesting to see how it compares to my 57c/ec206 on s40 setup, yours looks a fair size bigger on the top hitch!

i’ve only really been shaking down the machine the last couple of days, as with all these things it takes longer than you think, and there’s always more pipes on attachments that need lengthening than you thought

my first thought is that the direction peddles are really high off the cab floor, not sure if i like it but i’m sure il get used to it

using it in anger tomorrow mulching/flailing some rhododendrons in a woodland on a local shoot
