  1. Does that fixed style grab rotate at all?
  2. Another vote here for the cast workyquad. Brilliant bit of kit, down to 740mm wide on its narrowest wheels I believe but with 100kg counter weights and 70kg operator it'll lift around 400kg (That's absolute max I would think without making it unsafe). Really well built and simple machines too with decent honda/kubota engine options
  3. You talking employed or self employer rates?
  4. Not sure if they still have stock but fr Jones had some replacement tubes. Failing that...contact henchman, I believe they are the uk importers
  5. I'd give ladders a miss with an easylify, far too unstable and lack the range of movement often required when on a ladder. As far as the newer model with swivel is concerned...I'll stick with my older one I think, the newer one doesn't seem to work as well as it seems to get locked out on an angle making it difficult to pull the trimmer down again
  6. Not sure if this has the info you wants but here's a link to their fb page https://www.facebook.com/micropelle/
  7. Been following them on Facebook for probably a couple of years now. Don't look a bad bit if kit in all honesty and they are very cheap in comparison to a lot of others
  8. In short...yes, it's worth more than £23 a ton for biomass. The hard part is finding someone that wants it but it still isn't going to be worth £1000's. Probably looking at around £40-£50 a ton. It will obviously be worth a good bit more than that if slabbed up but again, you have the issue of finding a buyer but also the additional expense of getting it milled
  9. Been a quiet year for me so far as new jobs are concerned, by Christmas my diary was full till mid April but since Christmas I've only had around 3 weeks of additional work come in. It seems to be picking up slightly at the moment but not really enough to notice. Just taking the good with the bad now and not getting too stressed over it. I've had a good run for a while, it's actually quite nice to start having a mess around fabricating stuff and making stuff from timber instead of just work all the time
  10. Just get a smaller bar and chain for the 550, by far the cheapest option
  11. I was considering 3" but I'll suggest 4". The client has got a bit sentimental that the tree had to be removed so wants to try and make use of some of it for something other than firewood
  12. What's horse chestnut like as a milled timber? A client wants me to do some so he can use it for rustic outdoor furniture, I'm just curious as to what it will actually be/last like as I've always seen it as a pretty garbage timber to be honest
  13. I don't think it's a mine field, just a slight misunderstanding is all
  14. Slight mistake there...The towing vehicle would have to be plated to a mam of 900kg to make it legal to tow over 750kg with a 2600kg mam trailer
  15. Id like to add that you can tow 750kg as that comes under the 3500kg+750kg towing category but due to the fact the mam of the towing vehicle is so high, you can't actually legally exceed the 750kg towing capacity
