  1. Anyone any idea who us currently providing TM training in the south west . Tia
  2. Due to retirement and current work commitments we are looking for tree surgeons/groundsman/grounds maintenance (general all rounders) . The usual industry qualifications required along with the licence to tow. Experience of commercial contracts and the understanding of industry compliance . 7.5 ton entitlement also an advantage and ability to drive and operate a tractor. DBS check undertaken
  3. Pre covid I would have said landy all day long . Really like mine . Never been a landy man and certainly the body twist when i get out of it after even a short drive is a new thing . For estate work crown raising around fields 2 lads and a tracked chipper perfect . However now 2 trucks to site the tracked mewp may be more versatile . I dunno perhaps buy both and have the 3 acres of yard space and half million investment we need in an ideal world .
  4. I've had a chat with the importer . They are made in Turkey . The trailers are CE and TUV approved . My only concern may be spares however should not need too many for a long time. Brakes ok for me as I run an old Case tractor. Certainly much cheaper than some of the quotes I've had for other trailers .
  5. 8 Ton Farm Trailer, Drop Side Tipping WWW.JACKSTA-ENERGY.CO.UK 8 Ton Farm Trailer, Drop Side Tipping Anyone used one of these .I would be interested on any feedback . Tia
  6. As a nipper i was caught doing over 70 mph in a 30 on a 250 import bike . Stood in court stuttering away and was asked how much annual leave I had left and from memory I think it was 2 weeks and was handed a two week ban and fine which I don't also think was massive . Apparently sixth form girls aren't impressed with little scroates wheelieng past the college @ 5 oclock 30 years ago now mind
  7. Result. Checked out Thomas Higgins website and look ideal for future use . Rang the client and guess what no answer . Sent reminder invoices and made it clear if not paid today would be sent to third party debt recovery along with all other invoices and paid within the hour . Cheers for the nudge in the right direction arbtalkers
  8. It is getting boring chasing debts. Mainly commercial customers which each year takes a lot of time . Thomas Higgings will be getting a call this week unless something is sorted .
  9. Did not think they would be open . Good to know . Time for more robust correspondence next week then . For sure I think we will all have to be more careful who we work for . Chasing invoices can take up quite a bit of time , it's boring and time could be spent doing better things .
  10. I have a client who has owed for work done . Half of which was the early part of the year and another job completed recently .The work for this was done months ago however a planning application had to go in and the work only completed early May . After repeated calls and promise of payment we have now got to the point of the phone not being answered to me .They are still operating and have noticed their vans around and have been throughout the lockdown I'm told . Courts closed and suppose they know this . Anyone else in the same boat .
  11. Not one of mine but noticed this whilst out quoting today .Had to sneak up a d take a pic . The river below was glowing purple in the shadow.
  12. I believe you and open to discussion . I was going on the same information as devontwig . I spoke with Brixham fish merchant a few weeks ago who says the same as twig . Such a shame however we all have to eat and a job to do .
  13. I'd be interested in peoples observations of the ecological impact of the lock down on the wildlife and the environment in general .Bird song certainly seems more apparent but perhaps this is due to the lack of back round noise . I've certainly noticed deer in fields I not noticed before . I'm looking forward to start diving once this is all over . Much less activity from the big trawlers and even scallop sites not have been picked .
  14. I've a client wants to start a clearance job for a major hospital near us tomorrow. Don't think this will be happening , lads scattered into the four winds last week to boot , I may well carry on myself with some council grass cutting as long as people keep out of my way .
