  1. Is that self employed? Seems fair pay to me. I've heard others in north east Scotland struggle to get guys and put it down to most young folk chasing bigger money off shore, not sure if that's right or not.
  2. That's how diseased trees should be dealt with, the UK could learn a thing or two. 😁
  3. When I was at sse all employees used 2 ropes plus a strop, or 1 rope and 2 strops. 2 ropes were handy for big hardwoods and big branch walks where you could take a big swing but I found it a total pain in the arse most of the time and defiantly slower! And still doesn't stop idiots tying into epi regrowth.
  4. Sse have been using 2 ropes for about 10 years now! Knee jerk reaction to some twat falling ten ft out a tree after tying into a bit of epi regrowth!
  5. He should have just put a cummins 6bt in it, you can pick them up for 500 quid! 😁
  6. It was quite a tidy one too was it not? What a waste!
  7. Seen this in oban the other day, must be worth a few quid?
  8. What a waste of a nice wee mog! 🀬🀬🀬

    What an angry looking guy! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. He was going way too fast, especially with faulty trailer brakes 😱.
  13. Yeah think you have hit the nail on the head spud. I think the FC had a lot to do with husky being popular here, all their cutters in this area had husky saws so most of the contract cutters followed suit.
  14. Yeah I'm a big fan of him too, he will fix anything and runs loads of old scrap like me 😁
