    I will be using these for other things aswell as tree work. Woodworking in the workshop, riding the motorbike and hedgecutting! Just asking if anyone had experience with them. Riding the motorbike and hedgecutting? Sounds a bit dangerous plus it will be very difficult to keep a good level. Should be quick though.

    Was in Anglesey a few weeks ago and saw 4 reds at Plas Newydd, including 1 youngster out with his/her mum. They're working on ways of reducing road fatalities among reds in the area. Lovely little animals to watch.

    Depends on what you want it to do. Assuming you are dragging and not lifting, the worse that can happen if you overdo it is you will break a shear pin.

    I have an Ace 1600kg model which get used commercially on a regular basis and it has performed perfectly. Don't dismiss it just because it's not called Tirfor.
