SDL – Sustainably Sourced British Products – For Sustainable Living!

Racing Into March

The heart of the Cotswolds has been buzzing as we kick started the month with Cheltenham race week! With some of the biggest trainers and jockeys competing head to head – they know and understand what products are best on the market for competing horses and how to give them the best rest; in order to perform to their highest ability for a gruelling, intense four days.

With some of the top trainers now turning to our British SDL premium Horse Bedding, their horses are sure to be the ones bolting to the finish line.


SDL Solutions sustainably source and produce all pellet bedding in the heart of the Cotswolds, UK. Manufactured by their onsite purpose-built pellet line and powered by biomass fuel, the premium pellet is produced in an environmentally, responsible way. That’s just one of the reasons why customers and trainers alike, find SDL’s pellet bedding so popular.


“Quality is of paramount importance to SDL and all products and services are dedicated to delivering sustainable goods.”


Pellet bedding has become extremely popular, especially with race trainers for its cost effectiveness, light colour and hygienic properties! Even compared to straw – overall a pallet of pellet proves to be in the long run cheaper; working out at mere cost of £6.00 per 15kg bag! With its hygienic relevance, horses are healthier and happier, with respiratory tests coming back 100% clear from using a bedding material with such a low dust content of 0/04%. Not only is dust free bedding aiding horses’ respiration, but it is far more absorbent compared to any other material, making mucking out easier and incredibly time efficient!


Take a look at our demo video below on how to set up your fluffy, easy to use bedding and witness how easy our bespoke silo and waste skip is to manage and maintain your stables and yard.


Get your horse jumping for joy and save some time and money, with SDL’s premium bedding.

The Production team  have been working flat out, producing an impressive 50 tons of product an hour! With our yard in full operation, day in, day out, we’re able to manufacture round the clock our sustainably sourced, multi-grade British wood chip fuel our eco-friendly fuel pellets and our premium horse bedding.

The summer was a successful one for the Sales team, with a number of major trading events attended. Our bespoke stand was as busy as ever and it was an excellent chance to see our supportive customers and to meet lots of new ones too!

More and more of you are turning to sustainable living and this year we saw our biomass boiler installation and servicing packages soar! Our friendly team of expert engineers have enjoyed meeting you all and hope to take on even  more jobs in the new year.

Thames Valley Tree Care Site Clearance

SDL Solutions are always pleased to be asked to conduct site clearance projects. For over 10 years we have provided extensive forestry maintenance to the commercial, public and private sectors.


We offer a vast range of services including the removal of arboricultural arisings, contract chipping, site clearance work and machinery hire. With our dedicated team of specialists and some of the most state of the art equipment in the industry, SDL Solutions provides an unrivalled and comprehensive service for all your arboricultural needs.


We have successfully built an extensive portfolio of work, covering both small and large-scale projects. Our specialist forestry operations utilize cutting edge machinery for the felling of substantial areas of trees and shrubs and for smaller site clearance projects, our highly skilled operators use compact equipment and machinery to remove bushes, trees and any other ground foliage.

Recently we headed up a site clearance project for Thames Valley Tree Care, in conjunction with Western Power Distributions. We processed the green waste material to be taken back to our site; for production of consumable products in renewable energy. We take our recycling responsibilities very seriously and reprocess 100% of all green arisings taken from the sites we clear into a consumable product.

This project was carried out in conjunction with Western Power Distribution. The result as always ended with happy clients and the job completed on time and to the best standards possible!

If you are interested in learning more on our site clearance services, our team of experts will happily discuss this with you, provide a free quotation, surveying the site where necessary and will detail time scales, machinery required and completion dates. We welcome all contracts – private, commercial and local authorities.


Plus, don’t forget that we also offer contract chipping and top of the range machine hire! For a list of machines for hire, please contact our fulfilment team on 01386 840980.

Don’t lose sight on that site project!


Meet our new Albach Chipper!

Please welcome our new Albach chipper into our SDL Solutions forest machinery family!

It has been incredibly exciting around the yard waiting for this beauty to arrive and isn’t she impressive!? Especially in size! With the cabin raised, the machine is breath taking! When the Albach’s parts are extended, it looks like it has legs, so we call it the ‘transformer’.

Once on the job, the cabin is transformed from a sitting cabin to a control station, making operating the site clearance/chipping job so much easier for us.

The Albach is designed with innovative technology and composed in a large scale to meet the demands of today’s forestry industry in chipping. Inside the cabin, it is like a mini space station, with its high-tech specification and programming.

The machine is agile and flexible in providing chip – even in difficult terrain. Manoeuvring and getting about for us is vital, so it is very useful that we can drive it on roads, taking it from job to job.

So, what can she do?
