  1. Climber/Groundsman required. Pickering based company delivering quality tree, hedge & stump management. Position is initially for 3 days a week to help with a busy and continued work load but this could be made more or less for a suitable candidate. All equipment, ppe and insurance is provided within our current team. Although someone with there own equipment and insurance will be welcomed if they want a regular subcontract position. The position would suit someone with a strong work ethic over someone highly qualified. We can train you and help you gain the relevant qualifications but we can't train you how to graft. Please contact via email or directly through our business website. btc.ryedale@yahoo.co.uk brownstreecare.co.uk James Brown
  2. Hope someone can point me in the right direction with regards my tr6. Went to if as normal and it turned over but didn't start. Has happened a few times before as the banjo at the bottem of the fuel tank gets blocked from time to time. I put the throttle to half and it turned over again but didn't start. This normally starts it but not on this occasion. I turned it off and tried again, after the initial start up but nothing at all on the key. The fuse on the starter was blown, blue 15a I think. Changed the fuse and tried again and it had blown another. I would normally try and trace the wires for breaks but the bastard thing is at the back of my container and I'm struggling to get at it. Thanks in advance Jim

  4. Looks well to me I wouldn't spend anymore money, top job. Jim
  5. Old Conifer stumps that the client got sick of mowing round. Nice easy job with no arising removal. Jim
  6. It's to do with impartiality as far as I'm aware. Some one who owns the kit and is inspecting it may not right off or advice on what is necessary. I think the course stats were a 50% pass rate. Jim
  7. Cheers mate you're a good man 👍. Jim
  8. Good luck Blake hope all goes smoothly, thanks for all your help to date and I'll be in touch. Jim
  9. Yes but tend to just put the fairlead on the side we're running the rope. One man can fit it if you leave the bollard or winch off. Then fit which ever you need after. If you are removing the tree you just unscrew the rear rubbers and there is a L piece of back plate ready to go into a notch you cut in the tree. Jim
  10. Fair point. 😀 I was meaning from a firewood only timber value.
  11. I have the ld2 and it's a really good piece of kit. The rope clamp to lock the load off is a really good feature. As it's really a groundie tool and as people have said varying abilities with different workers it adds saftey and piece of mind to the climber. Might be putting mine up for sale soon as a change in direction maybe ahead.
  12. Wood is a bonus if you want it not a payment. Think this scenario will be more common place as the price of timber continues for logs.
  13. I've been on the go for 7years now as my own business. Started out with no pot of money but had a climbing saw own kit and a ground saw. Nearly packed in a few times at the beginning but I always took pride in my work and seemed to get repeat work because of it. I've built up to better equipment as and when I could afford to but in a way I wish I stayed smaller. From my limited experience having a lot of good gear, staff and plenty of gear doesn't mean you will be any better off. This is from both a financial and time at home prospective. I think you can ended up being asset rich and cash poor but it depends what suits you and your business. Getting a balance is the key and if you find it let me know! Jim
  14. Looks good. Not seen that one before but similar to the tempest although just one way. Looks a good powerfull ram running a bit slower but more productive overall. Jim
  15. I have a MO 5.3 and load it on my 10x5 ifor tipper with sides now and again. As said before not as good as a plant trailer but it does tow well if I back it on. I can have the bucket or grab on and man handle the forks underneath. Better to put any addition items in the pickup. Jim
