  1. If I could raise the money in time that's just what I need, great truck
  2. Sorry for late reply. Yes plus vat. We can do loads of stakes but bit short on binders however I do have contact for more (hazel or willow). Could do a discount for big order or collection from site. Cheers
  3. Looking around 75p each cheers
  4. Afternoon. Cutting coppice and have loads of stakes/binders available. Site is Potters bar way and our yard is oxford way so collection from either or cound deliver. Alternatively its cut/drifted and if we are on site you can come and cut you own cheers 07703192775
  5. Looks like someone got a bit wrong HS2 destroyed trees in way of train line without permission | UK news | The Guardian WWW.THEGUARDIAN.COM Contractors removed potential habitats for bats and butterflies in Buckingham nature reserve to prepare for rail line
  6. Yeah but I forgot to take photos
  7. No strictly arb but I'm well impressed with my t5 4motion
  8. I'm in need of a new helmet (ground/forestry only) and after much deliberation have decided to stick with the good old petzl vertex and peltor x4 muffs. Protos is too dear too have to upgrade muffs to chipper and every other helmet I looked at someone has some negative to say! Has anyone tried the new Petzl visor? Interested to hear how well it stays on helmet etc Petzl Vizen mesh visor (>2019) – FR Jones and Son Ltd WWW.FRJONESANDSON.CO.UK Face shield for tree care for Vertex and Strato helmets, with Easyclip system The Vizen Mesh face shield protects against...
  9. Chris I'm in the same boat (avant 528) and am near Oxford. I want to get a winch sorted as well-maybe cheaper to get 2 made? If I get anywhere I'll let you know
  10. Yeah I just sent an email to the folks I got my machine off.
  11. I was thinking the same thing, ideally I'd like some kind of skidding winch or capstan, with a butt plate but not sure if it would work or damage arm as you say? Kinda wish I still had my alpine with 3.5t winch on. I might just stick to the petrol capstan and get a bigger machine in when needed
  12. Good evening. I've recently got an Avant 528 and am keen to put a skidding type winch on it. Im not sure about the Avant one as it doesn't look like it has a butt plate. Has anyone got anything different or should I look at fabricating something? Guess I could look at landrover/husky type or was thinking hydraulic capstan as I'm mainly going to be on small stuff and have done loads with our portawinch Cheers
  13. If Rough Hewn doesn't want it I'd be keen
  14. Great week milling! 2 days felling, extracting and milling nice douglas. Over 100cu ft cut then day and half cutting Wellingtonia, over 900 linear meters of cladding. Loving the new loader too

    Aspen pump

    Im interested in this too, i asked the question before but didnt get very far. I hate the idea of plastic cans as they are a pain to recycled but love aspen/husky fuel. Ive decanted a barrel into old cans in the past using a barrel tap but its not ideal. I heard you can buy it in 20l cans or at pump in sweden?
