    As long as you are up to date I can't see how they can have an issue, unless it's just another excuse not to pay

    When do you really upgrade your chipper?

    i know a farmer in leeds who got a massive back dated VAT bill for using a Mog for hauling a 360 around and moving spoil, which in principle is similar
  8. i find taking the rope the opposite way round the tree more stable on small stems. so if (on side D's) you have your friction hitch on the left, pass the rope round the right hand side of the stem, round the back, and then from the left hand side to the right side D. this will give you a cross in front of you getting you closer to the stem and making it more stable without too much loss of mobility, or you could go the whole hog like in the picture
