    Next level

    Don't know why but that's not what I thought you looked like... [emoji6] Wasn't my business I felt like that with it was working for someone else who expected me to put my life on hold for his business which was definitely having a effect on my home relationship. Own business is hard work, long hrs and still effects home life but in a different way and affords me the option to just not work if I need the day off or early finish and the rewards or more noticeable as efforts put in are reflected in reward back.

    A bit of forestry.

    Something like this might be a cheeky way of making a return line.

    Unpaid work to gain experience - N Yorks

    Are you based at Catterick? If you are thinking about doing a few courses try giving garath at arb-for training nr layburn a call as he looks after the training for a lot of service leavers and is ex forces himself.

    New 150p Greenmech

    Good good, all doing well thanks. Yes it's amazing how many times you end up looking at a new scratch or chip thinking how the hell did that happen, annoying sometimes but as long as it keeps running well it's just that.

    No, outer ones are longer than the inners, tending to find the damage is more on the outer edges than in the middle of the v

    Rkp platform from Ferryhill, for 1 day get it operated as saves you having to learn the machine and ultimately saves you time.

    Very good, garath knows his 1st aid stuff inside out as was or possibly still is a 1st responder and worked with the fire service. Definitely a well structured and delivered course when I did it with him.

    Fings wot broke

    We didn't have that crack on our st8 but had plenty of others, some cosmetic which were irritating and some structural which if left unspotted could have been seriously dangerous, redwood did sort everything eventually and did it very well giving me back a rebuild vertually new machine but the hassle and down time lost my faith in the machine and brand. Hope you get it sorted easily mick
  15. This was only 8.5ton of timber on a 11 ton trailer So as said your unlikely to ever overload it. Not many have 4 wheel braking as standard and we had to specify it on this trailer. Something to consider is what you think you'll be shifting and from where, are you doing forestry and shift small thinnings or arb and handling ugly hardwood Really like these units for ugly hardwood https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F132648402660 https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F153008120972
