Forestry and hedging equipment can be a crucial part of many agricultural operations, especially if a site encompasses a diverse mix of land that requires maintenance and attention. And you can find a variety of smaller machines that are capable of improving productivity by reducing the time it takes to complete tasks in this area. Many of the units found here are compact and relatively portable, making them suitable for operations that do not require the deployment of a full tractor unit or other large piece of machinery with a tool head attached. When you are buying forestry and hedging equipment on the second hand market, you should still treat each item with the same level of scrutiny and attention as you would a more sizeable, expensive bit of kit.

Can't find your vehicle? If you have entered something in the 'model' field, try removing it and entering the GVW (weight) instead.
For example, if you were looking for a 'DAF LF45', then put 'DAF' as the make, do not enter a model, and enter a GVW of 7.51 to 18 tonnes.
One type of farming machinery you might find in this category is the log splitter, a device that utilises mechanical power to split timber rather than relying on manpower alone. And it is worth remembering that different models will be capable of dealing with different sized lengths of wood. Checking that the engine runs smoothly, the splitting heads are clean and well kept and the integrity of the machine’s frame is uncompromised will be necessary when buying used. If a unit features its own transport wheels, then these will also command your attention, since they will make it easier to manoeuvre the log splitter without the use of any other equipment.
Forestry and hedging equipment may have seen a lot of use in the past, or may be sold in a nearly new condition which allows you to get a discount on the standard price. But whatever model you decide to buy, make sure that it has the right specifications to meet your needs, thus allowing you to avoid seeking to resell it in the near future.
