  1. The bears will still dump in the woods, as the welfare unit is always too far away. Hope you site it in a shady spot.

  3. Be polite, or put on your best foreign accent, shrug shoulders and say "no english" and crack on. Always give a cheery wave when stared at.

    Excellent, quick turn around for tipping chip and logs.
  7. Is there 4 relays next to the engine. My 2004 150 did exactly the same, changed all 4 never had problems since. Think they are headlight relays but got mine from spectrum.

  12. Always payment on completion. If they want an invoice sending for bank transfer, will only wait 2 - 3 days before the reminder is sent. In my mind there is no excuse for late payment.
  13. Get a decent climber in and you stay on the ground. To start with, just use a trailer to remove brash no need to splash out and buy a van & Chipper straight away. Buy tools as and when needed, and for lowering, a rope over a crotch will be enough to get you started and keep costs to a minimum. Keep the day job for as long as possible and work weekends, bring the Mrs in to help as they don,t need paying. (Luckily mine has gone shopping so wont read this.) Above all, you will know this. Dont get into debt. Been going 6yrs and to start with got a lot of advise from reading Steve Blair and Tom D posts. They covered everything from marketing, quoting and working efficiently.

  18. Am sure when i replaced mine, the 3 bolts that you have taken out i then screwed into the other holes that are threaded. Tighten up, that should push off the pulley. On the taper, there is a grub screw on the rim, undo this and the taper should come off. Don,t like i did, hammer a screwdriver into the slot on the taper to prise apart as it suffs it. Or wack it with a hammer as this stuffs it also.
