  1. Pity you can’t tell him to shove it. whatever your day rate per man is, it’s worth that on top.
  2. Interesting machine . cant get into full ad on Mascus , don’t know why.
  3. Had a hatred of polesaws from my powerline days. Used to use stihl and tried echo and Husqvarna also. Must have had 4 or 5 at one stage and there was always one in for repair. i bought the battery husqvarna last year mainly for one job but now use it loads, mostly from basket. .Battery lasts hours as mostly only cutting 2 to 3 inch timber. also husqvarna polesaws and top handers don’t seem to fling the chain as easily as stihl ones
  4. What make is the crane? do the slew cylinders rotate with the boom? (I know, I’m sad)

    Wilsons have a sheilsing 440 pto at the moment. Would handle most stuff you’d feed by hand

    I think you’d need at least 90 horsepower for that chipper. The older farmis weren’t the best on conifers

    Can’t see a problem with dismantle video. Didn’t notice where branches to close to boom tbh. fine to let all down if there’s a machine to sort after. When dismantling with mewp where theres not enough space for tractor/crane and chipping has to be done by hand we would drop for maybe 10 minutes then clear the deck then repeat. Easy to come down and help and no energy wasted getting back up again . i imagine Bobcat would destroy most of the sites we work on. An awful lot of shunting just to turn a limb around. mini digger/ grab/rotator much more efficient and gentle to site.also I’d say smaller area to rake afterwards. Just my thoughts Enjoyed both videos

    Did nptc cutting from mewp using top handed saw. Cuts are pretty much same as with climbing and you are supposed to keep saw outside of basket
  11. What type of splitter? own engine or tractor driven?
