Project 1

To carry out scrub clearance on more difficult terrain with steep gradients we use an excavator with a hydraulic winch attached. The photographs here show one of our contracts where we were employed to clear scrub from steep cliffs and valleys on the North Devon coast.

The hydraulically operated winch with a single line rating of 20 tonnes is attached to a 15 tonne excavator. The excavator and winch are then used to lower and raise an Alpine Tractor which clears the gorse and scrub with a front mounted heavy duty flail head.

The excavator is fitted with a bulldozer blade which acts as a secure ground anchor. This working system provides a safe and efficient working practice solution for steep gradient projects.

Project 2

Using the same system we were employed to undertake a contract on excessively steep gradients. Due to the length of the gradient, the only option was for the excavator to firstly cut a road across for it to sit on, where it could safely winch the tractor up and down the bank as it mulched the bramble and gorse.

Other Methods of Steep Gradient Clearance

A mulching head attachment is fitted to our long reach excavator enabling projects on cliff side and steep fields to be completed.
