    Notre Dame cathedral...

    I’ve heard that said tonight as well but can’t see any truth in it as it would be plastered all over the net with whoever taking responsibility for it. These things happen it doesn’t take much to start a fire with all the building work going on. Could just ya rouge spark from grinding or the plumbers torch its been known before

    house renovation forum

    I would seriously think about a budget as we did the same as what your thinking and it’s nearly crippled me and the house is still not finished. Hence why I’m going offshore next month to earn good money and carry on with the trees in the time I’m home

    large trees

    Sure you’ll be fine just make sure you take your hi lifts and a tirfor ect unless you know there being provided. As I was the only one with them when I did my course 🤦🏻‍♂️

    house renovation forum

    I’d shout out on here as think a lot of us have another trade behind us so can advise. I’m a joiner to trade but been doing trees the last 7 or so years

    That doesn’t make it look like a cheap deal when you add on another 38% [emoji44] it’s the same up here when you go to a sale people get caught up in the bidding and pay silly money for things. Trailers are making nearly new prices

    Cheers [emoji106] just helping out on a diving job so hopefully get a few trips out of it and fill the diary up when it’s quiet

    Start Monday hopefully the course is at survivex then got the offshore survival the following week and hopefully away early/mid April. Seems strange how you use screw gates but the ASAP is a 3 way crab[emoji848]

    Cheers that was my general thinking as it’s just the entry course. Got a funny feeling the learning will start as I’m swinging from the side of an oil rig[emoji23]

    Not sure on the best section to post this in. Has anyone done there level 1 and got any good helpful advice? I’m potentially starting the course on Monday I’ve done the usual and watched YouTube. But always better to speak to people who have actually done the course. Cheers

    Advice on machinery for moving timber

    It’s certainly been a good help just needs a weight block on the back as the grab has been made heavy but still lifts a good weight. Just need to take the loader off and put on the snow blade and gritter on next week so earns its keep all year round
