  1. Here are some cross sectional photos the guys took during the dismantle.
  2. Hopefully these help confirm ID?
  3. Yes I think it is a taper lock pulley. By undoing the two bolts I thought this would allow me to remove the bushings but it doesn’t seem loose. Is there a knack to getting this part out?
  4. I wondered what others thought of this picture. It was sent to me by a potential client after I had visited to quote for a crown reduction on a large mature beech tree as it has been appearing since 2014 about 1m from the stem and fronds was last about 1m collectively across. It is definitely annual and appears around September tine on the prevailing wind side, down slope from the stem and if roots failed on this side, the tree will crash onto their bungalow. I think it’s meripulus giganteum and if it’s been fruiting 5 years already, I am concerned about leaving the tree until Autumn to see the fruiting body in the flesh, which is what the client is suggesting. I wondered if my ID from the photo is accurate and if I am overreacting on timescales?
  5. Anyone know how to get the pulley off marked as 3 in the diagram (we’ve undone the central bolt and undone the two bolts holding the bushing in place but can’t seem to get it loose). Also need to take the pulley marked electro magnetic coupling off too somehow but not tried yet. All this to change the belts. I can’t believe they’ve designed it to be this difficult or am I missing something (we undid the adjuster and you’d think that would be enough but the design is such that the belts can’t be removed with any of the other 3 pulleys in place and we have only managed to remove one pulley so far (top left in the picture) as that is a simple bolt to remove!). Any advice greatly received. Needed this for tomorrow and thought it would be an hours job [emoji45]
  6. It is being removed. It leans over an area where village fetes are held. Owner made the decision to remove it, I wasn’t involved in the decision making process.
  7. Unfortunately not but I will when I’m next there
  8. Can anyone help me ID these brackets please? Thanks in advance
  9. I was sent these photos by somebody I know asking if I could ID five conifer trees/tree groups from photos. I have to be honest, my conifer ID is sketchy and I need to physically see them to have any chance but thought I would post the photos on here to see if anyone is confident enough to have a go at identification. Here's the last of them.
