    Valtra tractor wanted

    This is the trouble I’m having I know my budget won’t stretch to a new one and I’m not vat registered which is a killer. Looking at one on Wilson’s but 13thousand hours puts me off a bit doesnt have to be a Valtra but that is my personal preference for woodland work.

    Starting out

    I don’t mean to throw a spanner in the works but I’d look for a second tip site, if you are planning on tipping all of your rubbish at a specialist nursery, how are you going to explain the risk of cross contamination on some prime species when you bring in diesed tree waste. Just a thought as everyone else is saying, start banging in some hours with a firm to get the physical experience and saw experience. I hear so many people say I want to be a tree surgeon and climb, then get 20 feet up a small conifer and crap there pants. Just always have a plan b c d and e

    Landrover 130 stuck in 1st gear ?

    Had a similar problem with mine. Could be the slave cylinder. There is a nut that you can release the pressure, you then top it up with dot 3 or four and continue to pump the clutch until the pressure builds up. Always worth a go and it's a cheep stating point

    Fail. Sling crash.

    Just watched the video again. Was the same sling used for taking the heavy timber down that was used for lowering the smaller branches?? There looked to be around 50% of the branches that were badly unbalanced and spun round causing a bit of a shock load to the sling. Could this be a factor?? Fan of chains personally on cranes

    New baby's and tree work

    So we are lucky to have been blessed with our s cond baby daughter, She is now just over three weeks old. Our first was so content that although hard was fairly Easy. Our second totally different. I will try not to compare but all she does is cry all the time. If she isn't asleep its just tears constantly. My wife and I are both at our wits end. The problem is my wife says go to bed you have work and let me sort things, which is good of her, but I see no difference in staying awake listening to her scream or try and help. I'm actually getting to breaking point. Trying to do arb work on 3/4 hours sleep a night is going to catch up on me So does anybody have any tips. I'm thinking about organising a snip party. I've done my bit for humanity so time to get me to the vets I think.

    This is why I love arb talk Cheers guys we are pretty sure it's good old colic again. I really appreciate all of your ideas, as with rest I will get some quick naps in. Luckily I'm the boss so I think I deserve it every now and then. I will see how tonight goes. Wife has phoned and said she has been better during the day so fingers crossed.

    Large walnut log

    I think your right it does deserve a second use. Yes it can be milled on site. I would have to be there as its at a private school so I can make sure nobody would stray to far from site. Standard policy for the school. I can help load onto a trailer or small lorry if that helps as I have a tractor with loader
