Needing an extra loader for this summer. Always fancied a shovel as they are so much more over engineered than telehandler. Anyone any experience of a 414s with a Toe Tip. Currently have a TM310 with a 3.5 cube bucket which holds approx. 2.4T of wheat and fills a lorry in around 12-13 buckets. I would ideally like to be quicker not slower so would need a min of a 3.5 cube toe tip.

JCB 418s shovel here with a toe tip bucket on does a good job
 
416 with a toe tip or similar works well and I have driven similar before. I just wonder if a clam shell might be even better as you aren't having to lift the load up higher and further to empty it.

Loading shovel pretty effortless compared to a telehandler in the main. May be my memory (going back a bit now) but never seemed to need as much go pedal compared to a telehandler, either.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
