  1. Past hour
  2. I only done some amateur laying..... But how else would you"pleach" something that big? Think normally the bit left is cut off lvl after Removing the heel or they call it spur in this pic.
  3. By Monday it will be sooooo fast you won't see it 😀
  4. Charlie with his new friends. He basically sees them as a provider of fresh dung to eat. A veritable smorgasbord for the discerning connoisseur of crap.
  5. 'Tis too. Fastest it's been in yonks; let's see what it's like Monday!!!
  6. Dépends on how much work there is in the books. But as a rule, yes. That tree wasn’t really difficult, just a ballache, road closure, power cut off, cutting and lowering tiny pieces.

    ...2/1 then; how much did you put down?!
  8. It’s fascinating to see the variety of trees you all work on and this looks the most difficult by far !!!! Is the price of the job much more for dangerous or difficult trees ?
  9. Can swap it to picco easily enough, which makes it a right little ripper. The anti vibe being runners is the biggest letdown.
  10. Today
  11. Kinda lost faith in my gunson, it constantly reads low - even on saws that run perfect. Had the top off no real sign of wear, decent Mahle piston and pot, ring doesnt look worn. There was a bit brown residue on the piston which I have cleaned off, deleted base gasket and put back together,m - sadly no different. I have ordered meteor piston to try
  12. Iv not long moved over to arboriculture from farm work. I have worked on farms since leaving agricultural college in 2014 previous to that i studied mechanics after leaving school. in june 2020 i decided to make a change of career and move to arboriculture. after speaking to a local company i decided to make the leap and get the tickets i need to start work. I currently have my CS30, CS31, CS38, CHIPPER, ROLO (need to redo my cscs test as i didnt get my card in time) AND FIRST AID + F. looking into the near future getting the CS39 but would like to get some practice climbing first before i do the CS39. To become a climber is my ultimate goal but understand it takes time to master this skill. With my farming background im able and competent to operate heavy machines such as tractors and loaders (although not ticketed for a loader but that can be sorted). Will work in all weathers and all times of the day to get the work done. Keen to learn and progress in the arboriculture sector. Progression route. As said previous my ultimate goal is to become a climber (CS39) but moving forward from that would like to earn the additional tickets in the sector for example, large fell, rigging, storm blown trees. Then progressing to a lead role. i have every interest to stay at a single company long term to excel at this progression. Heres a few extra bullet points. Adam Poynton 25 14/06/1995 I do drive Have own ppe Have own saw with tools Have a harness but no ropes (used the companies climbing gear didn't like their harness) 6 years farming Hard working and willingness to learn Confident of the tools including possible repairs to do on the kit. contact number is 07773744308 Thanks adam
  13. Some good info folks, many thanks. I’m definitely going to explore the options further. Looks likely it’ll have to be a home made job I reckon. I’m taking a week off over Christmas so it can go to the top of the list of tasks to do!
  14. Good thread bump @SamanthaSunny This piece of filth was surrounded by wires, with a pocket handkerchief garden as the drop zone. A few years back now.
  15. Stubby


    If there is nothing wrong with it and it works as it should why out it ? Non A/T big saws are sought after now a days it seems .
  16. Morning all i am looking for recommendations for ground protection for our grinder and mewp and wondered where everyone gets there’s from and they seem to vary in price massively.
  17. Top job - better still my Dorado has just come up with exactly the same error... wonky speedo, everything. So, the sensor is one of the ones coming out of the transmission on the RHS if laying under the tractor facing towards the engine? If that is the case can you remember which one, front or rear.... and when removing the sensor do you have to drop the transmission oil? Thanks
  18. It's always my bleeding turn in the barrel!
  19. How rough a tree will it push over thou?? I currently work with a 20t bottle ( and got a proper 30T Treeman's on order which was not cheap but should last a long time) and had it struggling a few times. But seen me at full extension and tree still sitting balanced as so much wieght on the wrong side. From wot I was told there only good for medium sized trees with not too much back lean/wieght on them. So u still need something bigger Incan for the real hairy outside monsters. But can see it saving a lot of time not cutting the pocket at back and getting the stumps that bit lower
  20. We've got a mitox for blowing off machinery and it's pretty good. I normally go with husqvarna but it was cheaper, more powerful and a longer warranty so an easy choice.
  21. Hi anyone have a price/value on Husky 343R unit said mint and looked after but there asking £350 ish Friend has one but found this one so looking as a spare/replacement when wrecks other one!
  22. Pikeys are us and Hey mister you want your tree cut down/Rubbish cleared/roof repaired/drive tarmac/Fence fixed =House robbed etc
  23. Yesterday
  24. Thank Gimlet some really useful advice. I'll check out the NHLS to find out more. Being solitary must be a criteria for being a hedgelayer as I'm certainly that.
  25. Ha I just sold a kitty combo it was ok ish but defo a hobby machine like the shopsmith
  26. I think I pay like 15 for 30 discs from our independent tool shop
