    Weather forcasts

    YR is good here also and Windguru fir wind speeds etc
  2. I would agree that mewp with poor outreach is not much use on dismantles. if you’ve got decent outreach it’s a different story. we often bring the mewp just for access into huge trees, do the bits it can reach then climb in and get groundy to take it away. thats probably the main advantage for me of owning over hiring .
  3. Nice. is the teleporter running the trailer?
  4. I hope things turn out ok for your wife and you. what model are you selling?
  5. Yeah. I fitted a piece of mesh over it to be on the safe side
  6. Nice !!! Did you cover oil cooler?
  7. Link not working (for me anyway)
  8. I’ve never done hedgelaying but from using them pruning I’d say battery saw would be great up to 3 inch stuff. Very controllable for partial cuts and no pulling to start every few minutes.
  9. If you are lucky , head gasket and get head skimmed this time if no hairline cracks in head. might not be that lucky though. Sorry.
  10. We put guard on ours. ok so far. also fitted brash grab with rotator.
  11. Any videos of Stumpgrinder in operation?
  12. Isn’t that a Navara? that extra axle might help prevent it from breaking in half.😃
  13. If it’s a proper chipper you want, TW230 diesel . if it costs more , you’ll save it back on less snedding.
  14. We’ve used a ‘Weedball’ for similar jobs. its a sponge roller with a 4foot hollow handle that you pour the pesticide into. costs around €40
  15. Interesting thread . Fast easy method so long as both sawman and digger driver have a good understanding of what they are doing and the judgement and discipline to leave the dodgy trees for winching. There have been a couple of incidents doing this on Irish forestry sites In recent years. one where the tree ended up on cab of machine, another where no safety pin in digger bucket, bucket fell off , narrowly missing sawman.
