  1. Had this recently.... even rang hmrc up as didn't want to believe my accountant lol 😆 Your vat reg, charge vat.
  2. Sounds awful, but dumpers suggestion sounds good then.... scaffold and small grinder. And most of all...... Charge plenty for an inconvenience pain in the arse job 😀
  3. Like ****************...... Come on! Thats clearly a cut to stump job and poison and walk away.... let the builders sort the stump and roots as they dismantle sections of the wall and repair. You or someone will make a right pigs ear of that if you grind! (claw away with a digger if you have to gently but no no to a stump grinder)
  4. He's like you say naive or plays dumb and just a winging twat questioning and bidding 2 sides of stupid questions / arguments against each other. Like radio Jeremy Kyle. I suppose its what folks like to listen to nowadays. Pointless shit to distract them from their lives or getting forwards
  5. Scott Mills is the replacement I believe... ohh my he is shite and annoying..... With that and that prick Jeremy vine it's gna be hard to tune in nowadays.....

    I wouldn't say undercut.... that word gets thrown about too often. I would say some can go work cheaper or have less work in their diary so can jump on sooner. And then some folk will be a bit desperate

    I'd say this interest rates and energy scare tactics are coming in early..... I'd say its a lot more quiet on enquiries at the moment. A lot more window shoppers too.... There are some folk still with money that will get things done but a lot that either won't or will wait for people to go cheaper or find someone cheaper. A lot recently I have found if you ring back maybe 2 days later, some one has allready been out to price and even some folk are doing the jobs near straight away! Folk just do not like to wait but if you've a full diary what can you do. I try to be optimistic but I fear things will get a lot quieter sooner than later.... you can't even blame it on summer holiday lol as they're not even here yet....
  8. Just get the deposit put down and worry about the rest later lol 😆 No videos?
  9. I think personally the smart thing to do would be to get someone to price them.... If your hell bent on doing it yourselves : Up your budget slightly. Buy a driven hydraulic machine like a vermeer sc252 or rayco 1625..... stumps will be a lot easier for you and your back! with the above machines, you stand to the side and use levers to grind the stump and drive the grinder. Lot easier than ragging yourself to bits with pedestrian grinder. Do the stumps and move the grinder on for very little depreciation!
  10. I was wondering that.... A friend sent me a video a good while back of a new tracked 540 or even 550 demo video and it was absolutely pathetic.... You wouldn't have parted with your brass with that performance!
  11. Didn't they go small crappy engine?
  12. Ahh balls.... better get my wallet out again then! Ebay sort me out hopefully
  13. Right I've ordered it... if its shite, its on you Gary lol
  14. These are the ports I want to check
  15. Right Gary hopefully that box will do and get more connectors as needed I see yours is for the tractor spools etc 👍
