If you ever see a mini skid loader (cad, skidster, kanga) anywhere near derbyshire on your travels giz a shout mate :thumbup:

It's a terrible situation when you need a loader to collect your wages, my heart bleeds for you :lol:

C'mon be fair rod.....it is a 'mini' loader :lol:

Adam.
Bobcats are about quite often, Case machines are about now and then etc. usually in need of work. but you are looking for a specifically smaller machine with a logging grab not a bucket or forks ? I do know for a all terrain Sanderson fork lift that could be fairly cheap, it's not pretty but the bright yellow paint job could grow on you over time.
Also have got a contact who does 2 of the big lorry/plant auctions in Doncaster usually twice a month, only 48 miles from Buxton ? If I do see anything that fits what you are looking for, I will send photographs etc. anyway.

I do have a young lady friend who volunteers to navigate on days out to farm sales and some machinery/plant sales who recons that it is some sort of disease to get excited about acquiring farm machinery or some pieces of plant/equipment, "she keeps telling me that I must have been deprived of toys as a child" and that it's not normal get excited about a lump of iron that has got possibilities and potential. I am trying hard to convince her that her brain is on the wrong side of her head and that she is not trying to embrace and understand the joys of searching out a auction bargain :lolno:

Thanks
Phil

Closest similar and cheaper alternative might be a micro doorway digger with a log grab instead of a bucket, bare with me "I will be back" with something I have seen when I find the link O/K

Yeah i thought about a 3/4 ton digger but it just don't tick all the boxes. A mini skid is a proper loader, no 'cab' to jump in and out of, we want one with wheels, and the mini skid can use a ton of different attachments. Four way bucket, grader, hole borer, rotavator, cement mixer, trencher, pallet forks, muck grab, the list goes on and on

:wave: Now here is a useful bit of kit that is very desirable :thumbup: :think: :idea: road registered with a V5 absolutely brilliant :) quick spin down the pub on a hot summers evening :think: any young woman would be super impressed to have a lift home via the fish and chip shop :!: :?:

It is called a Hydrodumper/Idrodumper, a self digging and spoil carrying duck-pond digging machine :thumbup:

Grading/dozer blade on the back end, when the next lot of snow comes you will be good to go and help the community with some voluntary work, it's a win, win project :thumbup:

Thanks

Phil that hydrodumper is awsome. Imagine a smallholder or similar with lots of building projects to do
Stick a thumb grab on the bucket and get to work!

Any girl who wouldn't want to be taken down the chipshop on that aint the girl for me!
