LINCOLNSHIRE Tree Services trust their Timberwolf wood chippers to more than meet the demands of even the toughest jobs.
Based in Tealby near Market Rasen, Lincolnshire Tree Services’ clients are located across Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire and Lancashire and range from homeowners within the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Beauty (AONB) who require high quality, sensitive domestic tree surgery to commercial tree services, utility arboriculture and public sector contracting.
“With our base in the Lincolnshire Wolds, we often need to access some difficult sites; from domestic gardens with narrow gateways to commercial sites with hilly and rough terrain, our Timberwolf wood chippers can always get where they are needed. Our fixed track tracked TW 190TFTR is especially good on challenging terrain and in remote locations,” comments Amy Prentice, director of Lincolnshire Tree Services.
Established in 2004, Lincolnshire Tree Services has always relied on Timberwolf wood chippers for even their most demanding jobs. Amy comments: “The Timberwolf machines are reliable, robust and guaranteed get the job done, which is vital for our business.”
Director Ben Redford agrees, “Timberwolf wood chippers have improved and developed over everything else on the market. The TW 230DHB was a big step forward in terms of the power, performance and ease of infeed you expect from a sub 750kg diesel wood chipper. Timberwolf machines are totally reliable, and you know they will get the job done quickly and efficiently.”
Ease of operation is another important feature, he points out, especially the positioning of the in-feed controls on the hopper, making for easy access when team members are loading branches into the wood chipper from either side.
“Our Timberwolf TW 190TFTR fixed tracked machine can get into the most challenging of sites – the fact that we have put 1500 hours on it shows how much we rely on it,” says Ben. “For example, a recent site clearance contract entailed working on a flood plain over a dyke, and we simply couldn’t have done without the power and performance of our TW 190TFTR.”
For such a busy operation, Timberwolf’s strong customer support network is essential, with local dealer Chandlers (Farm Equipment) Ltd offering excellent service and technical support. “If we need a part or advice, a quick call to Guy Ward at Chandlers and it is sorted straight away,” says Amy. “Knowing we have the support of our local Timberwolf dealer when we need it means we can focus all our attention on our business and our clients.”
In 2016 Lincolnshire Tree Services were the lucky recipients of a brand new TW 230DHB after winning Timberwolf’s ‘Win a Chipper’ prize draw.
“I entered the competition on social media for a bit of fun, and we couldn’t believe it when we won,” recalls Amy. “Our MD still didn’t believe it even when we collected the balloon-festooned TW 230DHB from Timberwolf’s headquarters! We were absolutely delighted, as we had an older TW 150DHB that was coming towards the end of its life, so winning a brand new wood chipper was perfect timing!”
She adds that Lincolnshire Tree Services expects its long and successful partnership with Timberwolf to continue: “Timberwolf really focus on their customers’ needs and produce a wide range of wood chippers to meet the demands of our industry, backed up by the strength of the Timberwolf Customer Support Network.“
