    TPO Tree v Recently built garage

    Inclined to agree with Mark. Maybe the garage re-build should have taken account of the tree and properly accommodated it (and future growth potential) Unlees the garage has some over riding importance which supersedes TPO, best they might hope for is some pruning.

    the 'todays job' thread

    Hard graft, not the most ‘fun’ of jobs but mortgage payments all day long! I did a shorter row (but bigger trees) a while back. Couldn’t face grinding them all so got a planer head for Multione so I can sit and drink coffee whilst dealing with the stumps. 👍🏻

    Whats your multione loader doing today ?

    Just got this promo email from Orange Plant. A handy piece of kit but I'm not seeing a threat in price point or capability to MO. Undoubtedly a very handy piece of kit - esp with the tracks - but it's not really a contender. https://www.toro.com/en/professional-contractor/compact-utility-loaders/dingo-tx1000-wide-track

    Guilty pleasure watching it occasionally! The food is amazing - the scale obscene!!

    And portion control! They feckers eat WAY too much! I can fair tuck it away, but last trip to NYC saw me & the Mrs sharing a starter as a main course - it’s quite obscene how much those Yankees eat!

    Raises an interesting question - make your own = no CE/BSI, maybe non compliant PUWER, management of H&S etc. Which is all OK until it goes pear shaped. But are the Hywell/MO/Avant variants CE/BSI? it would matter if AAAC was at stake or if there was an HSE investigation.

    Down scaling

    That’s a very comprehensive ad Alex. How many wankers messaged to ask price / colour / size / year / offers? Selling stuff really sucks, can’t be bothered with it. Guess it would be OK apart from the clowns you have to engage with.

    Can you stretch your budget? If yes, Have a look at this: https://www.stihl.co.uk/STIHL-Products/Chainsaws-and-Telescopic-Pole-Pruners/Cordless-Li-Ion-Chainsaws/22121-1583/MSA-200-C-BQ-cordless-electric-chainsaw.aspx you'd have to allow for battery + charger also but well worth a look! (forgot to mention, if you can get the one in the previous picture + the thing that's holding it in budget tell me where to go and I'm there tomorrow!) The 160 is a bit cheaper.... https://www.stihl.co.uk/STIHL-Products/Chainsaws-and-Telescopic-Pole-Pruners/Cordless-Li-Ion-Chainsaws/21856-1583/MSA-160-C-BQ-tool-only.aspx

    Hywell Evans have just posted their new version to FB. Most annoying thing, and I'm not at all sure I know why, is that pricing is always consciously omitted from any PR material. Why this has to be such a secret genuinely baffles me. Recent posts to both MO and Hywell Evans FB pages have all been - "...what is the price..?" Individual replies to all those people (in excess of 40 sometimes) must be a massive admin burden.
