- Many types of trees and vegetation can be baled into a viable product
- The bales remain a viable energy source for up to 18 months (depending on material)
- Material can be collected baled or bundled and removed offsite using standard timber handling equipment forwarders
- Stored bales increase in calorific value the longer they are stored
Bales are very cheap to transport as they can be transported on flat trailers

Our John Deere 1490D biomass baler machine will bale whole trees, harvesting residues, scrub and low-grade vegetation, into 3m long, 60cm diameter biomass bales, weighing between 400kg and 700kg (depending on the material), ready for roadside storage or chipping.
This offers an alternative means of storing energy at the point of production without having to worry about typical issues of wood chip storage such as self combustion of stockpiles, composting of stockpiles additional equipment required to load lorries and a residual amount of waste left on site. Bales can also be typically between 16 and 22% moisture
The baler is also quiet and very low fuel use compared to chipping. The machine is very low ground pressure suitable for many different sites including sites with wildlife or ecology constraints
Bales can also be used for temporary forest roading. Environmental uses include drain blocking, silt reduction, and wildlife habitat creation

Filling the gap, between our larger RT400 mulchers and our Fecon FTX128L mulcher, the RT200 is available with either fixed-tooth, swinging-hammer mulcher heads or stump grinder head. This mulcher will work on steep slopes and is perfect for smaller site clearance work, utilities clearance or the rail environment.

Kingwell have been contracted in for a large scale tree clearance where timescales are ultra-tight
With 120 mature trees to fell and process – including the stumps, in under 10 days, there was only one option. We bought 3 of our 20ton excavators with grapples and hydraulic stump shear and 2 of our RT400 mulchers. We are the only company in the UK with 3 of the big AHWI mulchers and are able to complete large-scale tree clearance works extremely quickly if deadlines must be met.
Our Hydraulic stump shears are by far the quickest method of removing tree stumps on sites such as these.
