  1. HAIX® Protector Light – Your Perfect Summer Boot

    Hi John Did you get the boots changed under warranty ? Haix stand by their quality and we at Workware support our dealers who sell Haix boots. Where and when did you buy them ? do you still have them ? can you take them back to the retailer you bought them from ? Regards Les Workware
  2. who uses the Haas Velox ?

    Hi Rich I am the development manager [south] for Workware, I joined them in January, we are the Haas importer. You bought yours from Honeys, I just called Woody at Honeys who will sort out warranty for you, give him a call and email him the same pictures. Les
  3. who uses the Haas Velox ?

    Hi Rich I trust you are well, re the Haas where/when did you buy it from ? can you return it so we can look at it. Les Workware
  4. ARB Show 2017 - key stats

    Hi Paul Can you drill down on those figures 109 exhibitors with average 6 people per stand = 654 per day are these included in the figures ? How many visitors only turned left to Weston Birt Arboretum from the turnstiles ? How many from the Arb trade [not general public having a day out at the Arboretum who just happened to wander along the path to the Arb show] where there ? Yes it was busier than previous years looking up and down the showground but the trade sellers during the show were not much busier than before and that was to be expected with Honey Brothers, FR Jones and Listers Arb not there The show had a buzz about it and we all want a national show to succeed.
  5. Anyone tried the Simhargu harness yet?

    All good things come to those who wait Simarghu – Simarghu available very soon The feedback from the Arb show was very good, once you try on and get on a rope you can feel the difference and appreciate the features. Les Workware

  9. R.I.P Theocus David Shepherd

    Very Sad news indeed, Dave always had long chats with me at the Arb and APF shows, he would supply wood for tests in Tewkesbury at the Blount HQ. He was a bright spark, full of life, loved our industry, always tried new kit, he was in the Arbor trolley video. My Condolences to his family and friends.

  11. Who's going to The Arb Show 2017 next week?!

    Growing its fan club slowly, there are some great developments underway ! Arbtalk will be one of the first to know when ready.
  12. Just got back from a great few days in Eire, the climbing comp had entrants from Germany, Hungary, UK, Eire, Northern Ireland and more. Perfect setting on the Stradbally Estate near Portlaoise, lots of trade stands from shiny things and all things Arb from Arborist.ie who I had the pleasure of working with. We sold out of the New Sip Canopy Arborist trousers, had great success with the new Simarghu harness with countless people trying them on and the women Arborists were over the moon at the Worlds first Gemini female harness. I will upload some photos asap Thanks to all for a great craic in Eire, the climbers spent a lot of time topping up their kit and the banter was flowing especially Tibor from Hungary.
