  1. I felled a Box Elder tree in the spring of this year, and spent a very nice afternoon milling it yesterday. I haven’t had the time to do very much mill, so I am very pleased with the results.
  2. We price by the job, we tried pricing by £ per inch but found we lost jobs that way. Only experience will make you good at pricing, and that takes time and knowledge of your machine (we still make the odd mistake). It’s also good to have a minimum charge that is realistic for small jobs.
  3. Keep the machine you have and then get Carlton 7015trx
  4. Husqvarna 560xp with a 18" Oregon speed cut bar and chain.

    Using a Winch

    You are too far for us, which is a shame, going on what information you have provided, our Carlton 7015trx would have 80 8" stumps out in about hour, so 2 hours on site with getting on top of the bank and clean up and about a mornings work with with our rayco 1625. The price you have mentioned seems very steep, but everyone has their own running costs.
  6. That all sounds good, very difficult when nobody has bought one yet, with regards to build quality and reliability. What engine and hp is it and what's the total width? Cheers Chris
  7. What was it like when you got it deeper into the ground? i.e. Wheel spinning slow, big teeth and lots of wood chip and soil, did it have the power to press on or did it slow down even more? Looks a nice size machine though, but have to agree needs the remote control.
  8. We use aftermarket green teeth on all our machines, we use them until they are blunt then replace with new ones. I can't stand the thought of sharpening teeth, Tungsten isn't something I would want to use a grinder on even with a mask, plus there's better things to be doing than sharpening teeth.
  9. We use this safety guard system, they are not cheap but when you think about the consequences of someone being injured, or the cost of damage to property, they are not that expensive.
  10. I never sharpen stump grinding teeth, just put them in a box, when the box is full I get the gas axe out and separate the tungsten from the steel and weigh it all in separately.
  11. Hi Johny, I was just wondering how you get on with your 4012?? (Yours looks to have done a good job on those Lime stumps) We have one and I am not impressed with it compared to the Rayco 1625 we have. The 4012 has the 27hp Diesel engine on it and seems under powered, plus it will get stuck on a flat lawn, let alone rough ground. Cheers Chris.
  12. A large wellingtonia (10ft) stump from last week.
  13. We get new toggle switches form Farnell Element 14, last time I stocked up on them, they were half the price of the main deale and they are identical switches.
