The search continues, having done some tests on my kubota tractor it appears that it lifts more than I imagined, at least 400kg no issue.
This means that the sort of articulated wheeled loader I've been looking at it not really that much of a leap forward lifting wise, once you look at official specs, add on the weight of the attachements etc. It's much of a muchness.
I'd keep the tractor whatever happens.
Now I'm looking at one of these, advantages are it could fit either in the back of my truck or alongside the grinder in the trailer, so an everyday tool.
Tip weight is 300kg which means what it will tip it at maximum lift, what it'll actually lift off the ground is much more. I'm going to use it with a branch manager (not a rotator as research shows they're heavy and not necessary)
Tracked skids are hors la question, 'cos of ground damage.
I know Squish had one that he swore by, and the pics were impressive.
What say youse? Any experiences
