Bet you were glad of the mewp.
Either that or it would have to be Mark Bolam’s neck plunge technique.

Client photos, nothing major imho but just so you know I’m still kicking.

 

Series of robinia leaning down a slope towards a house with a few power cables to spice it up.

 

Easy enough to be fair, stack the brush in situ, fell the butts so they don’t roll down the hill, hopefully finish tomorrow.

 

(cedar behind it would be a good days work!)

Some pictures from the last 3 days on site. 3 cedars to take out and I wish the neighbours had let us put a crane on their driveway.

Did you take that stump grinding pic directly at the height of Jennys bum lol

 

Shitty block paving for you ey? wont take much weight.

 

How do you go on with pricing this then Ian? X amount for crane then more expensive for rigging and re quote? 

 

Crane would have made your day! I take it the cranes pretty well distribute their weight and put matts down etc but just the sheer weight and shallow drains and crappy drive so neighbours said no?

Pretty much she said can I take a picture of her stump grinding. Her fault she did not specify where I would take it from.

Crane wise I just get a cost to see if it comes in cheaper than multiple days rigging and being less efficient in all honesty. If like in this case the crane was solely based on having it on the neighbours property and they hadn't asked yet. So they get 2 estimates 1 for with the crane, 1 for without. I don't do many to be honest though.

The neighbours were happy for us to have access but didn't like the idea of having a crane on their drive. It would of been fine with boards to be honest.
