...I thinned Sitka with a MuCullouch. Nice saw ( their Pro model - Heron barrel on it) but reminded me of the bags of shite you get palmed off with ! K

My old man had one.. only saw he owned, he killed some serious trees with it..(purely amateur, for our own use.. rayburn stove heated the whole house) it's on a shelf in my shed now.. as a warning from history!

I once saw a stump grinder on ebay and part of the heading was 'Not Stolen'.

By the time I stopped laughing the ad was pulled so never found out what they meant.

"sold as seen" = don't phone me when it breaks down on the way home!

Had this scenario first hand,
Sold a 1990 mk2 RS Turbo to lad from London years back. He turned up after catching lots of trains to get here, had a look round car, checked engine bay and the likes as you do, took it for a drive, passed comment on how clean it was, how free from oil it was in the usual places etc.......
Rang me up 3 hours later telling me he was on the services broken down, there was a severe oil leak and loss of drive??? 🤷‍♂️
I said, well you checked round it, drove it, commented on it for being clean etc, and you also signed a little piece of paper, a written receipt that said “sold as seen, no warranties given”.... he put phone down on me how rude! 🤠

Due to continued growth we require additional workers. Due to the boss constantly balling and shouting nobody stays longer than 3 weeks anyway, and even the sub contract climber steers clear unless he’s really desperate for a handful of cash.
