  1. I've used a Scag 48" high velocity twin wheels on the back on steep banks ..., nice and easy should get the job done:thumbup:
  2. Fuel and equipment by far fuel price at the pump not helping...:mad1: if stihl, husky and other brands of tools put their prices up as much as the petrol companies... dread to think what would happen to people
  3. Yes, I like that, I was thinking of something like a baroness as have worked with one before thanks RH
  4. I've brought a number of ex council (3-5 years old)Stihl FS410s and use them only with shredding blades. they do the job for me and still going 2 years down the line. Not to sure what work they did with the council but they are worked hard throughout the year for me but get plenty of TLC regularly. I like Stihl so slightly bias:001_smile: Rob H
  5. Ladies and Gentlemen, I have been asked to look at a job for a hedge clearance and anything found inside it down to ground level. grub out any old root stumps and leave living rhododendron stems at 1 metre in height There is no need for waste removal as it can be burnt on site by owner The hedge it self ranges from 2 to 4 metres at the base and is over 2.4 metres in most areas and is approximately 45 metres in length. The hedge appears to be mostly very old bramble, a small pyracantha shrub hedge of 15 metres long by 75cms high at one end. there also seems to be large spreads of very well established rhododendron, these poke out above the top and the sides of the hedge. The hedge has also grown through a chain link fence, which is located on one side. this requires to be cleared with minimal damage if possible. Due to the location and access this will be by manpower only, myself plus two. I have a work day planned of 8 hrs less travel (1hr each way) and lunch break (30 mins). I have long reaches, trimmers and chainsaws for the job. I would like a advice on the possible costing and duration £152-00 additional labour per day £50-00 OHs (fuel, Ins, etc) per day plus pay for myself. I understand my costings and for a 5 day week over £1000-00 less profit and my pay before we start. The land owner has an unknown budget, cheaper the better but to a good standard I would like to get it done in a week if possible. Any advice welcome on additional costing for the job and duration would be greatly appreciated. this is a first of this size for me so be gentle:thumbup: Rob H
  6. Ladies Gents Hopefully someone will be able to help, I am after the contact details of the Tree Officer for the Finchfield area of Wolverhampton. I am trying to get more information on a 50 + year old Oak for a client. TPO's & Conservation area restrictions etc I am located in Taunton so this is out of area for me. Please feel free to PM me Many thanks RH
  7. Kentjames That looks really impressive, was it hand made by you or, without being rude, brought in pack form, either way a nice job regards RH
  8. I use Toro, self propelled, a good general use (mulching) mower, a tank of fuel lasts for ages. main problem I have is the drive can fail, turning it into an expensive push mower. would be interested to know if anyone else has same problem RH
  9. Hi mate, yes the disc would be quicker and alot cheaper than a website, in both time and cost, good idea though. I use a folder/archive and pick the phot i want to send relevant to application showing before, during and after
  10. Hi Mate I would go with abit of what both RobArb & HCR have said. Have a website with photos of your work or a folder that you can email. Hardcopies in a presentation file for interview. The photos sent via post, would have to be of a good quality, if not it will make your work look rough. So I would look at emailing the pictures let them descide if they want to print after looking at them, need to watch the happy snaps All the best with what you are doing
  11. Yes Mate you can, not sure if i can help-where are you based
  12. Thanks to all for PMs and advice, employment found. Best wishes and good luck to those looking in this noble craft Rob H
