  1. Sorry, but under no circumstances does 33.112.(C.02) grant any exemption that permits the ‘blasting’ of little mermaids.
  2. Good to see that each hornet has been individually named.
  3. I would assume that’s where the rat smoking hose attaches to that @Muddy42 mentioned earlier.
  4. I think you will find that they park on either these: or these:
  5. Maybe, but I always assumed the pickup size was directly proportional to the inability to park considerately during the school run.
  6. Yeah, that looks about par-for-the-course. You would, however, be a bit miffed if you had burnt through a tank of aspen in 15 minutes cutting through that with a 200t.
  7. Battery saw run time time seems far more affected by what you are doing than petrol equivalents. General trimming back, pruning and dainty conifer dismantling easily gets you a morning on a T540i and a bli200x battery, but clogging down an oak stem with bar fully buried in the wood gets about 20 minutes. When I put my heart into it, I think my record to flatten a fully charged battery is about 7 minutes (firewood logging). The battery gets nice and hot when you do this, and the charger won’t recharge it till it’s cooled off a touch.
  8. Not really. PUWER just treats chainsaws differently to all other bits of work equipment. For all the ‘non-chainsaw’ stuff mentioned above, it’s up to the employer to identify and implement adequate information, instruction, training and supervision.
  9. In general, yes, but for chainsaws PUWER makes it clear: “workers should have received appropriate training and obtained a relevant certificate of competence or national competence award”. Some jobbing gardener, or passing tree surgeon is not likely to be going to be handing out a relevant certificate of competence or national competence award.
  10. But, as @daltontrees has already said, for chainsaws, PUWER 98 makes it completely black and white: "All workers who use a chainsaw should be competent to do so. Before using a chainsaw to carry out work on or in a tree, a worker should have received appropriate training and obtained a relevant certificate of competence or national competence award, unless they are undergoing such training and are adequately supervised. However, in the agricultural sector, this requirement only applies to first-time users of a chainsaw." For the workplace (except agriculture) workers should have received appropriate training and obtained a relevant certificate of competence or national competence award. simples.

    Not convinced that statement actually passes fact checking.
  12. I found that every climb in a T22 was, in effect, a trial.
  13. I doubt it is as ‘memorable’ as a Willans T22.
