  1. I am looking for a qualified climber with rigging tickets on Thursday 1st May & Friday 2nd May for a job near Alton, Hampshire. Please PM me. Richard
  2. They are great boots! Stick with them! None better day in day out. Sent using Arbtalk Mobile App
  3. Can they be retro fitted? Sent using Arbtalk Mobile App
  4. Just get the Meindl Timber Cat boots with retractable studs... Sent using Arbtalk Mobile App
  5. Second that! Sent using Arbtalk Mobile App
  6. I use a rope grab with mine, but you also need a small cut-away sling between the grab and your harness...for rescue. Sent using Arbtalk Mobile App
  7. I usually work on an average of 320kg/cbm, but if it gets wet then that goes up a bit. Some woods are heavier and you have to bear that in mind and act accordingly. Sent using Arbtalk Mobile App
  8. Looking at those pictures I'd say take it down and replant. Sent using Arbtalk Mobile App
  9. I would say never when there are any leaves on it. If you cut back the rootstock when replanting into a new pot, it will die if it has any leaves on it. Sent using Arbtalk Mobile App
  10. Bloody hell! Those are shocking! My worst blades were when someone didn't bolt the anvil on properly...the anvil came loose and was fired through the hydraulic tank; almost out the other side. Sent using Arbtalk Mobile App

    8" logs

    I have had the odd customer order logs, deliver them as agreed and then they ask me to come and collect them again as they won't fit into their stove. All 10-12". They claim they can only fit 6" logs into their stove and they never thought to mention it! I had to cut the whole lot in half for them. Luckily just around the corner. Sent using Arbtalk Mobile App

    Tipper back

    I used cheque plate to do mine and is plenty tough enough. Never had any damage with logs/chip. I would bolt on a plastic sign written outside if I did it again. Sent using Arbtalk Mobile App
  14. Get one and get a body made for the back with a toolbox built in. Great little truck. Sent using Arbtalk Mobile App
