  3. Very well put Micheal!
  4. Personally i wouldn't get involved, get an ecologist in that way there is no conflict of interests
  5. It’s surrendered, well it is french after all!
  6. I think to qualify you have to be able to drive whilst licking the windows, then it’s classed as “special “
  7. Sorry Ben but your guys fuct up, not the customers fault, you should stand it, the big mistake you made was trying to please a customer just to win the job just because he didn’t want to pay the real cost, day rates are for building sites and even then only if I’m pushed, I tend to steer clear of DR at all costs!
  8. One reason I price higher for plastic grass, accidents happen but if he didn’t take any precautions then it’s slack on his behalf so yes I would ask for compensation.
  9. I have run MT on two machines for the last 5 years, love the set up and it’s a 2 min job to change the lead teeth and then it’s back to full steam! I do “tickle “ them up but if there mullered or really dull I just bin then, green wheels are expensive and the dust is v Nasty, I then sell them on. Just price correctly and change the teeth.
  10. You can only pay staff what your business can afford and, you can only win work by being competitive it’s as simple as that, 40k for a groundy or even a climber is dream money, there are simply too many people at it and too many people who are basically glorified gardeners that end up de valuing the industry. My wife is a senior sister (nhs) with 30 yrs in with a degree in her specialty who isn’t on 40k, one of the guys who works for me is ex paramedic who did 12 hour shifts inc nights who was in 35k so a tree man in this day and age when everyone who can cut a tree is a tree surgeon ain’t going to get 40k in the books!
  11. Can these be used as a “ helper” set up? As in you keep the springs but have theses as well? Also I can’t find a price on the site .
  12. That’s it in a nutshell, just ordered another mate for a 461.
  13. I think your right but Khriss will know, he knows most things! I
  14. GB bars are lovely bars, I'm slowly going over to them on all our saws as they ware out.
  15. It has been known for me to be wrong, not very often mind!
