  1. my misses had chemo, op and radio therapy two years ago, think it was 10 months start to finish. don’t think to much about it these days aprtf from when the yearly checkup comes through the door
  2. well the reality for me was that it retained high residual value as the dealer gave me 4k less than i bought the machine for after 2 years chipping
  3. I think they retain a fairly high residual value, after owning my old machine for 2 years the dealer gave me 4k less than i paid for it originally
  4. i’ve been using it for 4-5 years. i really rate it, and it certainly streamlines quoting, job sheet prep and invoicing. don’t really use the app when quoting as i think it’s rude to be messing around with a device when talking to clients so usually just make notes on a pad or diary and i still print out job sheets for the guys instead of using the other app i’d recommend 👍
  5. i put a new engine on mine last year, engine was about £1750. i had the old engine out in a couple of hours and it probably took me a day to put it all back together
  6. it'll all get cracked down and chipped
  7. A couple of 4ft diameter Monterey pines coming out at a nice property in Burley in the New Forest. both trees down in two days and about half the timber moved offsite as well. start chipping tomorrow and get the stumps sorted then hopefully have the site raked and cleared by the end of play thursday seem to have had a run of pines recently, we’ve got one do do next week then that will stand the total at 35 mature Monterey pines removed since the start of covid IMG_1465.MOV IMG_1471.MOV

  9. some aspects of consultancy work il always charge an hourly rate for but you have to have an understanding with the client that you will be fair. for example i’m working on a scheme to construct a driveway upto a property with a steep incline and various trees. the pretty pictures of the driveway drawn by the architect are in no way feasible and representative of the situation so on this occasion I will give input, produce an tree constraints plan so they can produce a workable solution and liaise with with the LPA for an hourly rate. Ive then given them a fixed price to produce a report to accompany their planning application when it reaches that stage I always provide a breakdown of time spent with the invoice so people can see where the times gone, 15 mins here half an hour there soon adds up
  10. it’s not me or my machine from the limited time i spent watching it work im not sure the technique you suggest is possible with that machine anyway? you need to reach over the stump and work back towards yourself.
  11. 1.5m by 2m oak stump. roughly 5 mins work FullSizeRender.mov
