  9. I have not worked but been over to the area a couple of times and had the pleasure of spending time with a few companies for a day or two helping out. Bartlett have a number of depots in the area which you can find online. When we were with them the work seemed to be high end and if you are interested in plant health care as we were then well worth a think. Sacramento is further north and inland but is lovely and is called the city of trees lots of older properties and older tree stock, I may be able to dig out some contact details for you if required. There was a guy from Newcastle who has a company south of san fran but may be the wrong area for you. Good luck go for it.
  10. Hi as a new boy (your words) the question is where you work and do you have a chipper at the moment. My company works mainly south London, Kent, Surrey with a massive range of clients, for us a four wheel drive which we have which is Jap by the way is not used that much. As we do not do a lot of off road stuff but is handy every now and then. If you are in areas like Scotland, Wales etc then four well drive all the way. So I think you have to know your market place and it must fit to what you have and what you aim to buy in the future. If your loaded debris then a good 35cwt tipper lwb flat bed tipper with crew cab for you tools would be perfect which you could then have high sides and a roof later on if you buy a chipper. Never been a fan of Landrover's had them in the past and never got on with them. Ps: I will have for sale a 35cwt standard build arb truck with tool box and chip box. Flat roof with ladder rack, beckons ect. Nice little start off truck pm me if you want info and photos.

    I use invoices to go on my I pad for my quotes and quick books for all my invoicing and suppliers vat and a like. Just interested in other systems which are written for Arb.

    <p>Hi Wattie</p>

    <p> </p>

    <p>I seen one of your posts about the bandit wood chipper and you were pretty much the only one that could give a decent statement about them, however im in the same boat and not sure what to buy I have used schiesling and find they are way over priced and I like the bandits but not if they clog up with conifer (evergreens) global have 150LD 's and I know where there is a 90 xp but really I haven't worked either but can they be that bad on conifer or what do you think </p>

    Hi Guys Not been on for a while but was wondering if anyone is using the Arblogic program for quotes etc. I down loaded the free trail to have a look as I have been looking for a good program for sometime but it just does not do what I had expected. This is a £600 program which is a lump of money which I wont be buying. My question is who is running it as I have sent various requests for Tech help and had no reply's. Also tell me if your using it and what you think please. Thanks Wattie

    I pad

    Thanks I can see how I may be able to do that I have pages already which I can do a site plan and would be go for hazard notes, extra tools and risk assessment, however lads are telling not to worry about the RA for every job I look at just leave it to them to do on the day on the jobs I do win if you get my drift on that. Thanks Keven
