  1. The order came from frjones Some of the stuff was not in stock. So it came in 3 delivers 1 got signed for the other 2 just left outside. When they was a person in the house both times.
  2. That is true BUT The safe place is in an outbuilding not dumped outside for all to see. No card left they was some one in the house and he did not knock. The driver did the same 2 days before. This is not over.
  3. After replacing 2 grands worth of stolen machinery, the replacement gets stolen. Beware that if you have an app on your phone by a delivery company and have it set to leave in a SAFE place this means the delivery driver will dump your parcel any where they like. Not knock on your door or leave a card and you will be blamed and out off pocket. Dont use the app and end up driving 20 miles to pick your parcel up. The supplier uses this delivery company and should be half to blame as you will receive no help from them
  4. In October 2018, I had a 22 inch on demo. It would be replacing our hondas. I was impressed with the speed and quality of the cut so made the dealer an offer for the demo machine and also ordered a new 19 inch with blade brake. The Demo gear box machine was faulty and the 19 inch from new was also faulty. I returned them both and was fully refunded.
  5. By appointment only. clean chip and soft/hard log only - 07718887499
  6. we do long wet long grass, docks, nettles, bramble, ivy all with cord (sthil orange yellow and black line) no problem with the Stihl fs410 all the power you need and will run all day every day no problem. we have used Kawasaki big and small and are good for the money but I prefer the sthil for all day uses hired an old husky once did not like it not tryed the newer stuff yet.
  7. best machines we use are fleet. if you phone them for a price ask if they have any reconditioned units for sale about half price with new battery and pump 12 months warranty. Initial marking out takes time and best not to burn the lines in in case you make a mistake burn them in on the first over marking when your happy how it looks. football rounders rugby javelin throws training throws are straight forward. running tracks can be tricky if its got to fit a tight area. We have just finished marking out for the athletics season at the schools we do. one needed a 6 lane 400 meter trackwith 1500 and 800 meter curve, relay boxes different colours, 100 meter straight down one side and numbers on the lanes. it looked good ! pitch care is a good website
  8. we use line marker paint what we use for marking pitches out with. You dont need much in it.
  9. Self employed climber needed, few days work - Halifax phone 07718887499 Michael
  10. Get a used scag 48, you can pick them up for the same money as that billy goat and will be a way better machine for the job . ours will destroy long wet grass, no problem or keep short grass neat.
  11. we have a cheap Chinese one which came with the tractor it did its job well but has now retired to make way for a major 1.4 which was not cheap but does a good job and is very strong
  12. we have a few of these pro mulchers there not bad. leave the pull cord down in the engine as it rubbers on the plastic and frays the front wheels wear bad due to the crap design, to the point they will not turn unless the engine is driving them. engines are very good easy to start first or second pull. ours are about 2 years old we use them for private and comical sites any where its a rougher cut and a bigger machine will not get in. They get used most days
  13. We had one and on banks /verges is was no good, we had it stuck a few times. on flat / level land cutting every two weeks it did a good cut quick but would not have one again. [ame] [/ame]
