CHIPPER HIRE

From large tracked to small hand portable - a chipper for every situation

Latest addition:  


Built to effortlessly get to all those hard to reach locations you can rely on this tracked chipper to get to the job in hand.


Insulated steel panels protect the powerful 34hp Kubota diesel engine, offering robustness and importantly, noise emission reduction. (HSE "Buy Quiet" workplace noise reduction campaign compliant.)


A wide 970x790mm indeed chute allows for bushy brash reduction and a 150x230mm wide letter box-style in-feed throat makes light work of heavily forked branches.  This capacity reduces the number of chainsaw cuts per day, thereby increasing output, saving both time and money.


High ground clearance at 274mm allows for easy access to site over rough terrain.


Now available for hire in S Devon and Cornwall - ArbTrak 150 tracked chipper from Empire Trees


An ideal, cost effective and convenient solution for:


 + Sub-contract work to local SME Arb industry businesses providing the power and efficiency of a large machine when and where it is needed. Delivered to site as required and ready to work immediately.  Available with operator which provides the option of having a highly skilled and experienced additional team member on site (climber, rescue climber, ground & rigging, PTI & QTRA qualified, first aid etc which provides manpower savings / cost reduction whilst achieving the requirements of safe systems of work) or, simply call in the machine for the part of the task that needs it thus presenting maximum flexibility and cost effectiveness.


 + Support to agricultural contractors and farmers in remote locations, for example, where hedge reduction creates a large volume of brash to be disposed of and burning is not appropriate.


 + Suitable for quick and easy removal of domestic tree arisings rather than 30 trips to the HWRC with a car full of branches.

TREE HAZARD ANALYSIS


Tree hazard analysis and risk management plans are produced using the leading industry recognised processes

of Quantified Tree Risk Analysis coupled with the

Visual Tree Assessment method and qualified by the LANTRA Professional Tree Inspector certification. 

QTRA quantifies the risk of significant harm from tree failure in a way that enables tree managers to balance safety with tree values and operate to predetermined limits of tolerable or acceptable risk.

 

WHY CHOOSE EMPIRE TREE AND GARDEN SERVICES?

Next Level Service

In comparison to other service providers, you will find that the ability to survey, analyse, submit supplementary planning documents, deliver guidance for dispute resolution, execute the tree task and provide on-going assessment of risk management, all delivered at the highest industry standard, is a uniquely comprehensive arboricultural and grounds care package.


As a small independent local business Empire Tree and Garden Services is agile, reactive and customer centred.  With all of the skills, equipment and qualifications of a much larger company, there are none of the additional costs associated with share holder dividends, executive salaries and pensions nor is there the unwieldy, impersonal corporate clumsiness.  


Empire Tree and Garden Services places great value on retaining existing customers and prefers to look after the few rather than the many.

Small Enough to Care, Big enough to Cope!

By drawing upon the known and trusted skills of an experienced cadre of specifically qualified sub-contractors, Empire Tree and Garden Services retains a small company status with the ability to surge capacity to compete for commercial tasks that would usually be undertaken by much larger firms.  


The key to delivering success where the larger firms may fail is that senior / management staff from corporate entities rarely visit the 'coal face.' 


With Empire Tree and Garden Services you will have all of the skills and experience of the CEO, the Quality Auditor, the Customer Relations Executive, the Health & Safety manager etc all on site, all of the time, focused upon your task.


Empire Tree and Garden Services places great value on retaining existing customers and prefers to look after the few rather than the many.


There are an abundance of low skill / low cost operations in rural areas.  Whilst there may be occasions where low skill / low cost might be appropriate, please do not expect a "we'll beat any quote" response as this rarely provides true value for money.
