  1. the 'todays job' thread

    It has some near the indeed roller but not the full length of the tray
  2. the 'todays job' thread

    Three pictures from this weeks site clearance so far total of 34 Trees coming out. we did 8 with the crane yesterday, have felled 20 with the winch on the tractor so far and have 6 left to fell should have two days chipping with the heizohack and a arctic load of timber to move plus the 12 tonne I moved with the low loader trailer on Monday
  3. Ripped off by tree surgeons

    £100-£150 to dismantle it to the red line, no thanks The only way id have anything to do with it for that sort of money would be if it was an easy fell from ground level, leaving it where it lands. Then it would be the sort of little 15 minute job we'd do quickly at the end of a day if it was on our way back as a little brucey bonus
  4. Show us your Arb Diggers please.

    That’s a good solution Eddie, I may get mine converted at some point but this will do for the time being. Il probably refine my setup when I get round to getting an engcon unit. I liked the way it was done for the beam on your old machine where the grab closed into it
  5. Show us your Arb Diggers please.

    Seems to sit pretty well in the grab and doesn’t move to much, I might get an extra bit of box welded to the back to fill it up in the grab a bit more
  6. Show your tractors

    Should have a bit more grunt @Jonny Burch
  7. Show us your Arb Diggers please.

    Had a rake bucket adapted to work beneath the grab on my 6 tonne excavator works nicely
  8. 560 fueling issue

    The 560s are great but I can’t spend any more on a saw that only lasts 18months
  9. £7.50 an hour?

    Someone will do it and be grateful for the work
  10. What's your at work protocol?

    Up at 6, let the dogs out, put the kettle on and chuck a few logs on the Woodburner to get it going again. Pop into the Oval Office and get that done then cup of tea make sandwiches and print out job sheets. Take misses up a cup of tea. Let chickens/ducks out, chuck some hay out for the sheep and feed the pigs. Leave home about 7.25 to get to the yard for 730. Sort gear out to leave the yard at 8 to be onsite for 815-830 ish depending on where we are. Tea break at 10ish then lunch around 1. Look to leave site at 330-4ish to be tipped off and packed away by 430
  11. A fox for tea..

  12. I want a Landy Tipper (Am I insane?)

    My 110 tipper is a great truck for following around behind the mog for carrying kit and rake up, it’s handy for a second team to head out in doing smaller jobs with a 6inch towbehind or hedge cutting drives terribly fully loaded wouldnt want one as my sole vehicle and still gets stuck with a load on
