  1. nice having the lift platform. we did one once and it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be with the platform, trying to boom in without damaging the remains of the leyland and scrabbling about on my knees in the basket to try to level off cuts etc.
  2. I did a big one once, ground it nearly all out, cleaned out hole, sprayed remains with grazon90, had a sandwich, sprayed remains again then filled hole back in. nothing came up again.
  3. No. you can simply steer to the left or right to tilt the post, the awkward bit is if it tilting away from you or towards you, just have to hop off and check.
  4. probably too far, South Devon. The knocker takes a bit of getting used to, its easy for the post to lean a bit. the auger is a good tool to but would require back filing and tamping by hand.
  5. Anybody fancy a day or two a week climbing in South Devon, Kingsbridge area. Must be suitably qualified and experienced for bigger trees. Call or message on 07813902311 Andrew
  6. Thanks. No decay association with tree roots then?
  7. Any ideas? Found at base of roadside Ash with a little dieback in crown.
  8. Any climbers need a day or two a week so I can catch up on some of my bigger jobs? Kingsbridge, Dartmouth, Totnes area. Andrew 07813902311
  9. It was only scrub. i live a stones throw from dartmouth
  10. I bought a danelander 3pt linkage one and welded it to a multione bracket. Works well clearing up after large hedge cutting. Wouldn't be ideal on a manicured lawn. i liked the look of that danelander rake, but thought it looked a little harsh for a lawn clear up. it looks like the spring tine rakes the best bet
  11. i did see this but the video on youtube just showed it raking gravel so wasn't sure how good it would be raking up on grass.
  12. i went with the goodwinch, they do a winch which slots on to any tow ball you just need to wire in some anderson sockets to power it. works really well for me as i dont use it often.
  13. Does anyone use a rake or broom attached to their mini loader to help with the clean up? Danelander land rake or bmg broom? Mainly interested in raking up debris on grass. We have had several jobs lately which left mess spread over wide areas which take ages to clear up with rakes and its the sort of size that rips the tines off your rake. Seams a shame to have the loader sat there doing nothing
  14. Pretty sure that's is for a set of panels and i think they are heavier duty, so I'm guessing slightly thicker than standard issue panels
