  1. Slight derail but I think the Cornavirus is going to have a bigger impact on everyone than prehaps we realise. Factories are shut / shutting which means that in 6months there won't be the availability of goods that we are used to.
  2. Has anyone got to the bottom of this and worked out what we should / shouldn't be doing?!
  3. Simon Holmes from Tree Surveys is good, based just outside Reading. http://tree-surveys.com/
  4. Going to be following this thread closely, having signed up to ArbPro at the show a couple of months ago I've just got used to using it!
  5. What type of trailer do people transport there skid steer on? Can't decide between a plant trailer or a flat bed?
  6. I think a big contributing factor to injuries is having to work fast on jobs to get them done on budget or within the designated timescale which leads to people taking short cuts / not concentrating. I'm sure we would all love to work to industry best practice but the reality is that it's slower. In an culture where everyone wants the cheapest price, including must Councils, Wildlife Trusts, etc companies are forced to keep pushing their staff to complete jobs as quick as they can to make any money.
  7. Anyone got any more experience with the Vermeers or Ditch Witch?

  9. Knife crime in UK cities 'turning people into monsters' Knife crime in UK cities 'turning people into monsters' - BBC News I think violent crime is definitely on the rise!
  10. We lost one before Christmas ...... can't decide whether to replace it or not!!
  11. How much is the ditch witch ? PM if you would prefer
  12. Thinking of getting a mini skid steer and can't decided whether to get a Vermeer 725TX or a Toro TX1000 Anyone got any experience of either machine or is there another make that I've over looked. Not really interested in Avants etc as want it to be able to go through a standard pedestrian gate!

    Does anyone use RatedPeople.com and if so do you find it leads to much work?
  15. New JCB promotional video - could be of interest.
  16. Yeah its all road legal so drive it on the road just think doing lots of road milage is going to damage it in the long run. There not really designed to go flat out bouncing down the road!!
  17. How does everyone move there alpine tractors and trailer about? Currently got a AGT850 and 3ton trailer which comes in at about 20ft and finding it hard to move it from site to site / to a site for a couple of days.
  18. Yes it does but you have to undo 2 bolts. Get yourself a 19mm ratchet spanner and its easy.
  19. Yep, been running mine for almost 2 years now and not had any problems. Might be upgrading to either a 150 or similar sized diesel chipper now due to volume of work.
  20. Forecast is for another bad week weather wise!! BBC Weather - More storms for the week ahead?
  21. Probably 10-20 bags to start with. Looking for a wholesale price as intend to resale in my local area along with bags of logs for fire pits.
  22. Hi All, Are there any charcoal burners on here that sell wholesale? Looking for a source in the Berkshire, Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Wiltshire areas that I can buy wholesale ready for the summer?
  23. I would like to commend Riko UK on the amazing service today. On route to drop my AGT850 tractor back to them for its 50hour service this morning I unfortunately had a minor accident which left my vehicle undriveable. A quick phone call to Riko to see if they would come out and pick the tractor up (30mile round trip) and they straightaway said it wasn't a problem. In a stressful situation it was a big worry lifted off my chest and I wasn't stuck on the side of the road with no way of getting the tractor to them! Thanks Riko UK :thumbup: :thumbup:
  24. Still looking if anyone is interested?
