    Do you not bother backing over them with the mulcher Bob? Or to much time and fuel and effort?
  2. Have a look at this to give you a brief look at what's in front of you. Foreign video and crappy music but I'm sure some will be relevant
  3. One thing aswell is condition of clutch.... If you do change you have to have surface of flywheel machined and the same removed off the mounting part. Like you say could be a simple job. It's just time and if you can afford it to be down in bits / only machine. I usually fall into the last category of only machine and can't afford it down long. One thing I have learnt though is that sometimes it's just easier to do things yourself as the workman ship of some out there is shocking! No good agri mechanics about here
  4. Cant comment on complexity but Im sure whilst your in there its best to do the handbrake band at the same time! cab off job if that goes so might be best stick a fresh one in if worn. Whats gearbox done or not doing? hope no shite gone to hyd pump etc
  5. Did you take that stump grinding pic directly at the height of Jennys bum lol Shitty block paving for you ey? wont take much weight. How do you go on with pricing this then Ian? X amount for crane then more expensive for rigging and re quote? Crane would have made your day! I take it the cranes pretty well distribute their weight and put matts down etc but just the sheer weight and shallow drains and crappy drive so neighbours said no?
  6. Anyone got any info on how to replace? Thanks
  7. How easy / what's involved in changing the roller box side flywheel bearing? Hopper and roller box off then bearing cap. What then? How to get old bearing out? Then fitting the new one? I'm sick of these crappy greaseable bearings failing... Fine on rotation but float back and forwards.... I'm putting a sealed bearing back in. They lasted for hundreds of hours.... Any help appreciated
  8. Yes and lower centre of gravity for your load
  9. I bought a.new gx106 earlier this year. Upgraded from a gd105. That thing floated around when loaded with a lot of weight but fine with just machines.... The gx106 is spot on for me I can put stump grinder and tracked chipper on side by side no problem. Better wheels tyres and suspension also! Love it. I have quite a bit of planting to do soon and removing soil etc... Going to have to go buy a dropside aswell.... Thi g is with trailers, they are relatively cheap! And you never can find one that suits everything! Horses for courses. Buy whatever suits your work
  10. All the above is correct and I am co operating with them. One point of conflict is... I don't need to enter their property.... Can you really define air space as property? Also what is there really to damage? It's over still water. Passing boats are only the same as passing cars or pedestrians to work around.
  11. The sawdust could be classed as building materials for any beavers that come for a vacation. Help it stick it all together you know and 100% organic. I bet this could catch on
  12. Lol far end of a fart lol Not a clue to be fair. I told the sawdust to go back on the customers land... I was totally out numbered and out gunned and it all.ran off.officer
  13. Yup... I said well it's up to you, I wouldn't and it could be a double ended sword...
  14. My thoughts exactly... Tree's span to 1/3 into canal but no where near the toe path etc. Balls to a bit of sawdust drifting... They can have that for free lol All lads be on customers side at all times Everything rigged and pulled back to customers side. Using bio oil and even been and bought eco plugs which is probably a lot more than some would do
  15. Not sure if your pulling my leg here this is not on the canal path side / mooring side
  16. Anyone had any dealings with working on tree's overhanging the canal? Customer has informed the canal and river trust about some works to be done. Some tree's to remove. They've asked for public liability ins, date for work, rams and to sign an indemnity form. As far as I'm concerned we are not entering the water course. All to be rigged back to customers land. Been told without submitting the info we / customers cannot do the works / remove their tree's. Laughable How daft is that? The tree's are the customers on the customers land and the canal and river people say we cannot do the works without sending the info through to get a permit to work. I'd never had rang them personally...
  17. That's fair enough then. Sounds like a bit of deadwood lol People that don't drive are no good to a business
  18. Can't just understand all this.... But if I read correctly I'd be tempted after you told him to take it or leave it. I would be tempted to tell you to shove it up your arse if I was already disgruntled with you
  19. Such a shame redwood doesn't do it anymore as Vincent was good to deal with.
  20. Absolute wankers! The tossers that come up with these ideas... long as their pockets are full in their life time then bugger everyone else and their future.
  21. sell it to the guy with the biggest wedge of brass in front of you.
  22. Go on then Ian, What you going to do with all that? lol
  23. Only problem with jensen..... finding a decent dealer / parts source
  24. Yes. Knobbling your tax down and lowering profits can kick you up the arse come the time to borrow
  25. All banks give a toss about is you earning big profit and paying tax.. Best way to get forwards is having a Mrs with a decent job and salarie lol
