  2. I spoke with my trailer servicing guy this morning and he has already had an increase in horse box sales enquiries. Going to be a nightmare as stated before 3.5 ton needs to be loaded correctly or you could be in a whole world of trouble . I suppose the price of rubbish old ifors ect is going to rocket in the short term also .

  4. I've got a grcs with a damaged winch possibly for sale , from what I can make out it is only a few broken bits of plastic in the drum , it's been replaced wit a complete unit and was keeping a spare incase of a technical takedown and looking at repairing the drum but will never in reality get round to it . What would a back plate bollard and damaged winch be worth to anyone ?

  10. The winches for £700 will be for sailing and not industrial use are they not ? Although I am not actually sure the GRCS is CE marked so void in the UK should the shit hit the fan so you might as well crack on . Out of interest where do you get the winch for £700 as I could do with one .
  11. What are peoples thoughts , it seems everyone is very busy and more so than ever . The fact for years we all complained of colleges churning endless lads out each year and this de valued a mans wage for sure . Now as it seems colleges locally are not churning them out like they used to climbers and decent groundies can easily command a 30k plus salary which is about time .Even smaller companies in this area are looking for middle management roles at 30k or more a year . Is this the future or is it a post lockdown pre brexit adb bubble ?
  12. Have to say I have a job this Saturday , got to be done on a Saturday 2 teams out on it and double pay for all . I have to say I don't usually go double as Saturday work tends to only be a short day if we work at all . The client was made aware early on this was ok with it .
