  3. My new dog.

    Staffies get bad press but you won't get a more loyal dog. My daughter has one with a head the size of a 3 gallon bucket but its a lovely dog. You're not wrong mine could barely hurt himself let alone anyone else! Cheers Mick
  4. My new dog.

    Nice new dog Nikk, I've been in a virtually identical situation to Mick in that I lost "Bruiser" my best friend in January and it's taken a bit longer for me to get my head around having another. But last week we re-homed a 10 month old staffy called "Lexi" The old and new
  5. cutting pampas grass with a chainsaw

    Easiest way I've found is a strimmer with a blade and dome it over. Put a saw through one once and all it seemed to do was blunt saw due to soil that had been drawn up into the plant.

  14. the 'todays job' thread

    Helped a mate deal with this rather large beech this morning, it failed on Wednesday after the heavy rain we had! Nothing to remove from site as the customer wanted it all for firewood 👍 (bout 10 yrs worth!)
  15. the 'todays job' thread

    It's a fair size alright, went past a couple of times today whilst doing some quotes be good to see some pics. Looked like a nice job to do (if you're the climber!😀)
