    Non paying customer

    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...).

    Ahhh another person from out west. There are a few of us based there. I have a place near Clon. You're right about crazy rents but it surprises how many people wont live in a older place like yours. There have been lots come onto the market in recent years. H

    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.

    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

    Making the news today....

    Happened to a mate of mine, probably thirty years ago. Him and his girlfriend got hassled by some fella in a pub one night, they drank up and moved on. Tw@t followed them and started again, my mate banged him one, he hit the deck and died. My mate walked on the grounds he was provoked, and it was self defence. Going and finding someone, even if you think they need a slap could get you in big trouble. Anyone that takes the law into their own hands must me prepared for the circumstances.

    Selling a firewood business

    To get back to your original question. If the business runs pretty well without much input from the owner then the sale value should be around a figure of the last three years pre tax profits plus stock at valuation. A

    Front mount farmi on unimog

    Barely. It's a bit heavy.. just don't want the hassle of taking it on and off.. I'm getting lazy! Not overly worried about weight to be honest, it's a good excuse to uprate the springs! (Or leave more chip onsite!) Not thinking of a massive crane either.. something tidy but useful.

    He came in and collected it today, it’s gonna go on a 30” mill for the summer and he’ll hire a woodmiser for his bigger lumps. I’m not sure if he’s on here but if not I’ll keep the thread updated as he goes along.... the 288 piston and pot upgrade is looking to be very likely soon enough too!

    Stihl ms 211/ c throttle linkage removal

    Any I have had to remove the handle cover there is usually a self tapper at the bottom end of the handle and you need to turn it over to see it. When it does come off watch out for the operator presence lever spring and make a note of where it came from.

    How much do the FC pay for cutting work?

    Depends on where you are. FCS are now Scottish Forestry or Forestry & Land Scotland, not sure exactly what they're calling themselves, but they're still basically the same organisation. Almost all cutting work with FCS is now on a multi-supplier framework agreement so it depends on who you're working for as to what you'll get as well as what level of skill and experience you bring to it. Our rates with them are pretty healthy, although there's still room for improvement in some areas. Unfortunately the days of being able to rock up to the forest office and pick up a bit of cutting work locally are now long gone so if you're looking for cutting work with the Forestry, certainly in Scotland, you'll need to find out which contractors are on their agreements and get in touch with them.
