  1. For £150 a day on the books with accommodation and a vehicle you should be fighting them off! Are you getting no interest or just not the calibre of climber you want?
  2. If there's a credible threat to life i'd evacuate the property immediately until the threat is removed.
  3. To be fair if you're that bothered about the wellbeing of your trees you probably won't ask the local driveway guy to quote for the work.
  4. Where did you get those circular containers Ben?
  5. Grab a bottle of liquid whipping mate.

    Had you done that, and David hadn't learned his lesson, and killed someone the next time, that'd be on you as well as him.
  7. I've used both and own the Stein one. Personally I wouldn't bother with it. Over complicated, it folds when you really don't need it to, and it's less powerful than the Jameson.
  8. I begrudge paying for fuel at a franchised petrol station when the ignorant fucker on the counter will loudly talk to someone on the phone and barely acknowledge you.
  9. You can leave an apple on his desk on the way out.
  10. Yeah basically. If your climbing leg of line is taking your weight than the tied off leg will have the same weight applied, so double at the pulley. Same as a basic rigging setup
  11. I reckon you'll be putting twice the force on the RG in that configuration.
  12. Well I didn't want to put it like that.
  13. The differences in performance are significant when you're climbing daily. Being lighter, smaller and more ergonomic is the selling point of these saws, and the echo wins on all fronts. The new models are infinitely more reliable than the early ones too.
  14. So is Husqvarna better?
