    Creosote mixed 50/50 with black oil would solve the problem. It would all be the same colour and also last forever!

    Any idea what the trailer and chipper comb weigh.

    Exactly, if I know access is tight it gets taken off.

    Trapped nerve any one ?

    Sorry to hear your the way you are, but i know where your coming from on this issue, had a trapped nerve in my neck about 3 years ago could hardly move my head without being in a load of pain, my right arm always felt cold and could hardly lift any thing with it, after several visits to a physio began to feel a bit better, the worst of it lasted about 2 wks but sorry to say this it was nearly 3 months before i felt as if it was ok, just had to carry on doing bits as best as i could but the first 2-3wk drove me mad as could hardly lift the kettle to brew up, hope your back up and out,n,about soon,,

    This is all good. Fingers crossed that it's a simple fix.

    A school. They're pretty small and come ganged up to 96v in enclosures that form part of an uninterruptible power supply for a computer server. They bin them every two years to make sure the backup power system is always tip top. I imagine other organisations with lots of computers do similar. Because they're small, I had to do a lot of wiring to parallel them (I'm running at 12v), which was fiddly and expensive but works.

    I've just noticed @AHPP is online, he gets used yet apparently still good batteries free, I never did ask him where he gets them from.

    Trojans are one of the best batteries on the market but they are eye watering expensive. You really need to do an energy audit to work out which system will work best for your needs. Back to the radio, if you do go for an electric one get a car stereo.

    Good that they're putting something in hand quickly, good luck.

    Producing the power is relatively cheap and easy, the expensive and hard part is storage. 12v leisure batteries are good for lighting with leds and constant recharging. [emoji106]

    If you want to use an electric kettle you will need and inverter that will power it, and they are a big draw on your batteries. Radio won't take a massive amount but a wind up one will help through the Autum/Winter days when you aren't pulling in much power through your panels, lighting wants to be 12v led's, phone charger through USB charger rather than a 'household' one. MPPT controllers are the most efficient. Have a look here, they are a well respected company, with good after service. https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=bimble+solar&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en-gb&client=safari

    Cheque Imaging

    I'll have to take a look at the lloyds app, our nearest bank is 30miles now and when you're sales are 70% cheques that gets annoying...

    What’s a cheque?

    Been carrying the winch on the nose for at least 2 years now with very little issue and it's there if needed and adds a bit weight to the front which calms a bit of bounce and helps clear cars out of our way [emoji6] odd junctions become interesting but again if you slowly edge out cars generally give way rather than hitting a huge lump of mettle

    ROPE

    You'll know after untangling it! That aside I would imagine it could do the job. We used to use it for roping over movable poly tunnels.. even in short lengths it can be a pain. It's as if it remembers every twist or turn it ever took!

    Cheque Imaging

    My business account is with Santander, I normally scan cheques in at the machine in branch. They clear next day, and the bank is only up the road, but depending on time of day it can be a right pain finding a parking space.
