Congratulations Huw, she looks a beauty. Bit of green envy coming on strong with seeing the VA and all that extra reach!

Hope you iron out the niggles you've been having and start settling down to learning to drive tilty style. Would love to come up one day and have a gander at the Wacker. I'll let you lose the shine on her first!

Very intrigued with the "extra" tilty speed up button in the Neuson. Be interesting to compare speed and performance with tilty and attachments.

All the best.

John

Thanks all, sorry for the slow response, phone/internet been off again.
Bit more reach than she can handle, with the tilty and the big bucket on the end, But the VA is in constant use and is proving very useful.
Slowly getting the hang of the engcon, was finding it very tiring to use the first couple of days, but getting a bit easier.

Found a bit more bout the two speed auxiliary switch, apparently it pumps out 76 LPM slow and 111 lpm in high, borrowing the extra oil from the blade/VA/ Boom slew. More or less on par with most other Machines i think.

Had one of these on hire today. It seems to do an ok job. A little disapointed with its cuting capacity so far.

Yes. A 250e its a nice compact unit. But it has its limitatations. Its not what u would call a proper shears. Its almost a tearing action(which splits a lot of timber ) and its not guaranteed of gripping every piece timber.
But having said that it should be fine for farm type work.

You would have been better with the 200 Model if they had one available, as the 250 will need even more flow and the Engcon will be struggling, hence the jaw being slow and you will drop more pieces.

It's pretty well documented the downfalls of the Tiger type shear, but when correctly matched and in work that suits them better like clearing small birch regeneration and the like, they are extremely fast effective tools.

It looks from the wear marks you are using it correctly, as you really have to get the material down the side of the blade where the twin grab arms are to get the best cut.
Having the Engcon to rotate around as you cut, can end up fetching down material way over the rating with little issues.
I ended up carrying spare blade bolts and make no excuse for giving it hell with the Kubota as the build of them is bombproof.

All said putting the Exac-One cutter underneath and using the Tiger grip as a gripper unit has ended up the best combination I have yet to see.

How's the machine been going for you?




Eddie.
