5 blokes, brash relay

Agreed

Very often with these fancy Dan engineering solutions by the time you’ve got it all set up and figured out it’s not going to work it’s already mid morning and if you had dragged a few blokes out the pub for some cash in hand it’d nearly be finished.

Definitely man power on this one. Can’t see who’s got the better run down on your customer or next door side or a bit of both just to keep the brash flowing. The grass bank at the front is there any signs of an east route down it onto the neighbours drive rather than your customers winding path. Or if you have access to a tractor and hijab to lift the brash down off the grass slope. Good luck on this one Kev. What area is the job in, just so I can avoid it.

Yep, tractor and Hijab, definitely the way forward :)

Ha , very good. And probably not far off being in Cornwall .

The machinery would be viewed as positively ‘next generation!’

 

The operatives co-worker however, would likely cause widespread confusion, panic & public disorder!  

 

Made me fair chuckle......

Downderry Alex. Summer months, wouldn’t even try and drive a car through there - hellish traffic congestion and parking issues. On the flip side, out of season months are better BUT it seems everybody has held their building projects to the quieter period - crazy amount of work going on. 

 

Unusually, this one has good parking at roadside, space to batch,  chip and stack, it’s just the transit from tree to chipper that is a drama. That grassed area is across the road opposite the house and is owned by homeowner 

 

Open top chute may get get a bit of further investigation but a major part of the hassle is getting ‘gear’ into the village. 

 

Its very likely that manpower is the only reasonable solution.
