  1. Use a little stump grinder and get builders to provide a scaffold to work from
  2. I fail to see your problem you know how much the order is worth to you £15000 so add £1500.00 gets you £16500 tell customer he can have bit of discount for prompt payments ,wait for instruction and deposit start cutting its not rocket science If your question should have been How much can I get for this order then you should ask for £20.000 and see if they bite!you can always negotiate a reduction in price but hard to increase

  4. Just remember it’s still a very small oak tree
  5. You would get that in a skip chop with a saw and tread down
  6. So borrow the money how much would you need ? 1 merlo. £250.000 2 lorry. £65.0000 3 avant or similar. £35.000 4 chipper £40.000 5 truck for chips. £20.000 your not getting much change from 1/2 million so 500.000 for 5years = £2000.00 per week plus interest etc so if you could get £2/3000 per day 5 days a week might be possible
  7. I don’t understand the ground boarding outside the protective fence the reason for the fence is to protect the trees therefore no access to the root protection zone, no reason to ground board arb supervision get someone in hard hat with ear defenders and yellow vest to appear in pictures had this problem few years back jumped through each hoop forewards and backwards didn’t see planners at all and building regs were not interested in my opinion was a was of money that could have been used to better the site
  8. So what is it’s legal carry capacity with two men and a tank of fuel?
  9. When you do research you get told qualified instructors you then pay for the course then attend to find out your trainer is still wet behind the ears I did ask specifically for a trainer with crawler experience and was assured that they had plenty,alarm bells rang they morning of the day before when they asked for the manual they already had my money for two months course was a waste of time but gave us a piece of paper to satisfy the HSE
  10. How long do they last? the engine must be thrashed to get it working well my pedestrian lawn mower has a bigger engine
  11. If the trainers were like you I would have no problem I genuinely feel that before you try to train you should have many years experience in the subject. I have just taken a tractor course we had to send the manual to the trainer so they could read it and tell us how to operate the tractor and for this service I got charged £525.00
  12. That’s no fraud it’s genuine! So you can now look forward to spending many hours if not day’s hanging on the phone trying to sort it out and maybe you will, maybe you will just get pissed off and ignore then it could come back to bite you or get your accountant to sort it that’s what you pay for
  13. Nptc = cash generator for people who can’t do the job!!!!
