    Drenline for SRT.

    It's a great line if you plan on using it for MRS and SRS. It is a little bouncy to be strictly used for SRS in my opinion. Great rope tho, ecspecially in the ZZ We’ve bought both now. Your spot on about the characteristics of drenline being better for MRS. I now use xstatic for SRS.

    Tyres ford ranger. More town than country

    I have general grabber at3 on my ranger, haven’t tried any others so can’t comment on those. Before I got the grabbers I did ask about the coopers but not a lot of places had them in stock at the time

    He owes you money for completed works. Providing there aren’t 2 sides to this (you’ve delivered substandard work etc) then don’t feel bad or worry about chasing your money - it’s yours, not his. If he’s ignoring you then the chances are he knows he’s in the wrong and will pay up as soon as the right pressure is applied. And if he’s the type of pillock who would subsequently spitefully defame you for chasing what’s owed, simply go around and break his legs (you know where he lives after all)!!! (Please note that I’m not a legal professional and my advice may lead to further issues if followed to the letter...).

    Battery/electric vs Petrol

    I have spoken at length to the bloke that invented this. http://www.smartgauge.co.uk/ He knows a bit about battery technology. I don't think he gleaned his knowledge through watching YouTube, but I'm sure Vesp will put me right.

    I always wonder though with something like this, the customer can really damage my business with checkatrade, google or facebook review in spite.

    I've had exactly the same with a contractor. I've been patient, I let him make a payment plan when he was struggling to pay it but he has failed to keep to it. I've lost patience now so will be filing the papers next week.

    I want to agree with the Coopers reccomendation, but my sidewalls are starting to show small cracks after only two years.

    Thanks a lot guys. What annoys me about this sort of thing is the lack of knowing. No response whatsoever leaves you knowing nothing.

    They confirmed quotation via text. I don't have signed quotation acceptance anymore as I found that getting people to sign things and then post or scan the quote, dropped my conversion rate significantly. I do have text correspondence and photos of the gate installations. Will this be a problem?

    That’s exactly what Thomas Higgins do on your behalf - costs £10 and you get that back when you win. Solicitor’s letter and a professional firm sorting all the paperwork - no brainer IME. Life’s to short to stress out chasing money, use the pros!

    Battery/electric vs Petrol

    I don't know if @Vespasian is right about a battery saw never going to make anything like a good 70cc felling saw. I agree that volume of petrol is a lot of energy to squeeze into a plastic case. One battery for the gob, then another for backcut etc. But Eggs is right - Vespasian will never understand a complex subject like battery technology from Youtube presenters (self appointed experts who equip themselves with jargon to lend themselves an air of authority). The only way to know the cutting edge is to read the research. Unfortunately it takes a genuine interest in the subject to motivate oneself to read research.

    I’d bet that’s the real reason your stress control isn’t working - if the magic box isn’t receiving an engine speed feed from the broken alternator it won’t allow the rollers to turn irrespective of the charge in the battery.

    Battery/electric vs Petrol

    sort of like running a long extension lead behind your electric car.. seems a bit odd that you'd bleat about the benefits of battery power storage only to be so terrified you might be caught short you end up still tethered to the damn thing you're trying to decouple from.. Its basically cowardice masking itself as self sufficiency.. as bad as those virtue signally left wing loons we all come across in the media and politics.. be green like me, only don't look to hard at the evidence...
