  1. YOUR Election Manifesto.....?

    Scrap Trident
  2. Advice on possible new truck

    Buy a tipper mate, no question. you might chip into bags but what about logs, you don't always want to hand ball them off. What if you buy a bigger chipper you can chip straight onto the truck and tip.
  3. Anyone use a "safety razor"?

    I agree with all of this especially the fact that double edge blades are so much cheaper than cartridges. I just bought 100 Gillette blades for £9 delivered off ebay. I can probably get about 4 shaves out of one blade. A good starter razor would be the Edwin Jagger DE89
  4. First straight razor shave.

    Hey mate, I use the double edge razor blades not the same I know but still super sharp & cheap. Blades work out about 15p each, better than any cartridge on the market imo.
  5. Walkie Takie Headets

    This seems like a great price compared to the sena headsets which are about £250 for a pair.
  6. In Desperate times...My Silky saves the day!

    How do you clean yours Paul?
  7. Isuzu or Cabstar????

    I got a new 15 plate cabstar this year after having the old model. Huge improvement in the cab space, new gadgets including Bluetooth, electric windows etc. Was also one of the cheapest vans & I looked at everything. Great workhorse too. I'd have preferred the canter but there with the vat on it there was about 9k of a difference.
  8. Waterproof jacket

    Interested also
  9. Rainwater Harvesting

    I was reading something the other day about how its illegal to harvest rainwater in some states of america. The worlds going crazy.
  10. When the customer does not pay

    I think you decrease your chances of getting paid if you start dumping chips etc at someones door or site. Very tempting tho.
  11. Kanga mini loaders

    What about the sherpa mini loaders? Doesn't look as good as the Vermeer or the boxer but looks better than the kanga. Anyone tried them out?
  12. Giants usa

    Hire a car and goto Avenue of the Giants its about 4 hours north of San Fran. Awesome place.
  13. Tracked crane dismantles

    Nice vid. Ive never seen one of those cranes before how much was the day rate mate?
  14. Base layers? do you wear them?

    I wear breathable base layers all year round. Helly hansen long sleeved numbers cost about £15-£20.
