Anstee Services invests in John Deere 1510G forwarder to fulfil growing biomass demand
Wood recovery and conversion specialists, Anstee Services, has taken delivery of a new John Deere 1510G forwarder to help meet the growing demand for biomass.
Anstee Services Managing Director, Craig Anstee, says: “The forwarder is our latest investment and will be integral to our site clearance and forestry management services across the UK. To ensure very low ground pressure, we specified a long rear bogie axle set up with specialist flotation tracks.”
This allows enhanced and environmentally friendly operation and performance in soft soil.
“We’ve also fitted the forwarder with a Dutch Dragon press collector. Forest and woodland owners are increasingly recognising the value of recovering brash, so it’s a great benefit that the press collector increases the brash carrying capacity by 25%. The combination of our forwarder and press collector enables fewer loads and keeps ground disturbance to a minimum.”
The 1510G is capable of carrying round wood, brash and whole trees.
