I love that silt fence running up the hill...

That isn't by that cranberry marsh is it? What are you thinking about the grinder now after using it for a while? I like that big Deere x!

Ya, the silt fence is a bit ironic... Unfortunately we see that all the time out here so the irony gets lost on me sometimes- thanks for pointing it out

When we were looking at excavators, we actually tried that same 225 out. Very nice machine- felt like a big 50D! Nice and smooth and fast. I even did the Bobcat Ron test of taking a full bucket of mud and dropping the boom and stick while it was full over the side to see how tippy it was. It wasn't Unfortunately, for most of our jobs these days, especially with a mulcher on the stick, we found the 225 was going to be too big to get through the tight areas we find ourselves these days. Additionally, the 160 is 8'6" wide so we don't have to worry about permits- I wasn't going to be able to get away with that on the 225 at 10+' wide.

That clearing job wasn't by a marsh- it was actually on the backside of a landfill that was leaching chemicals into the groundwater. Hence the environmental company being called to come in and mitigate the area.

And in terms of the grinder, it does exactly what we wanted it to do- process green waste and mulch- very well. It was great on this job because there really wasn't room to bring a big tracked grinder in either. As we start getting into bigger clearing jobs and we expand our recycling yard and we need to start handling stumps and bigger logs, a larger tub or horizontal will be in our future for sure.

yeah thats whats nice about the 140 volvo we got you can haul it and be under 8'6 so she can roll day or night and holidays. Now the 210 on the otherhand at 11' wide is fun to move!


I like the silt fence on top of the hill, had to point that out as well first thing I noticed, bet its a state job!

Just curious, but have you seen one of these in action?

You could break down stumps and still process them through your small grinder.

Dirtman- how did you know it was a state job?

Krazy- you ain't seen nothing yet!

T_S_S- No it wasn't. They were a local company here.

Mx- I have seen one of those and I'm very interested in one. As we expand our recycling yard we will be looking at all the options, including that really cool attachment!

Here's a few contract grinding pics from two jobs we did in the last few months:

Job 1- Not the greatest pic, but it shows a little less than half of the pile we ground up in one day:
