  3. Business Opportunity

  4. Business Opportunity

    Hi, I am reluctantly having to get rid of my business due to arthritis. I have everything you could need to run a three man team. The truck is a 7.5 tonner on an operators licence and chipper a good TW190. I was also An Arb Approved contractor till recently so everything is in order. I also have all the necessary stuff on the computer that will help you along the way. There is also a fully set up yard which the landlord would happily lease on to anyone wanting to set up in my area. Website too with a steady stream of enquiries. Before anyone asks why I am not paying someone to carry it on, I am looking for a complete clear break to pursue a quiet career in gunsmithing! Willing to deliver everything anywhere in the UK. Price to be negotiated. Kind regards Steve Hawkes Tree Services Tel 07712 305385

  9. Burgled again

    between 6pm and 6am presumably during the night. A van containing our special friends was seen and reported sniffing round on the Friday. It was a very well planned job, they came across a field in a large 4x4, opened my very secure shed door using what looks like a Fire Brigade jaws of life or something similar, cut open the side of the steel tool locker on the truck and emptied it. The police haven't mentioned if anyone else was done in the area. Steve
  10. Burgled again

    Just wanted to let everyone know we were burgled at our premises last night, it was a very well planned raid and they got just about everything useful, chippers survived. We lost an MS660,MS261, 200T and all out rigging gear and climbers kit. All machines are engraved "Hawkes Trees" and CO9 4HP. They are also smart watered. Seems rife around us at the minute with a lot of farms getting done too Steve
  11. Timberwolf 150 hours

    We have a 2003 model with over 2000hrs on it, still going strong but regularly serviced, we originally paid £4500 for it 5 years ago
  12. This is a good one

  13. This is a good one

    Unbelievable, whilst working this afternoon at a large farmhouse next to a country lane, some worthless piece of sh!t decided to sneak in the garden climb into our truck and steal an MS201T with lanyard and crab. The blokes were working at the rear of the vehicle chipping but had stupidly left the tool locker door open. They were less than 5m away in broad daylight. The saw is registered on the Police database and painted with Smart water for what its worth. Watch your kit boys, another profitless day for us! Regards Steve
  14. Hi, I am Ex forces as are some of my blokes. I am also involved with a charity which helps modern day veterans who are often battle scarred to find a job in civilian life. I currently have one such veteran Mark, who saw heavy action in the recent Iraq campaign, doing some work experience with us. He is very polite, punctual and holds his CS 30 and 31 tickets. He has been with us for a few days and is a very hard worker. He is 29 and holds a driving licence. I would love to offer him a job with us but he is located in Romford in Essex and the commute would cost him a fortune. If anyone is looking for a reliable groundy in the Romford area who will work his socks off for a reasonable wage please feel free to drop me a line at info@hawkestreeservices.co.uk thanks in advance Steve
  15. Flammulina velutipes?
