  1. Just looked at the treehog, looks better than the stein one, but not as good as the TCF. And it’s more money, and not galvanised 👎👎
  2. I’ve used another arbtalk members one of those a few times, it’s brilliant. Takes loads, the drop in pins make it really flexible, easy to fold the handle and chuck it on the truck, and it’s galvanised, like all metal equipment should be👍👍 sensibly priced as well. I will be buying one at some point soon and making a bracket for it on the drawbar of my chipper so it’s always to hand👌
  3. It is a very well done box, but I'm not sure if it's right for me- it does make it a bit of a one trick pony. Itll be staying that way for a long time yet though😆 Spanners out, flooding starts😂😂😂🤬 massive thunder/hail storm.
  4. First outing for the landrover and chipper combination, 2 small cherries in town then out into the fields clearing a fallen ash tree. Nice mornings work👍
  5. I was supposed to be buying a cheap transit for a day or 2 with the chipper every couple of weeks😆🤬😂 oh well, I managed nearly 8 months without a defender (after 18 years of continuously owning one)😂
  6. Handy things but not worth much. Where abouts are you?
  7. I like the look of that, exactly the same design as my Hyundai but with Honda Gx reliability👌👌
  8. Thats what I thought! I saw the money in my Lloyd’s account 36 hours after applying, could have been in within 12 hours as I didn’t look sooner. Ive spent it on a tractor, which I think is is pretty much the point of it- I’ve borrowed some money that i can afford to pay back but probably wouldn’t have been able to borrow otherwise, and passed that money on , keeping the wheels turning 👍👍
  9. 6t is pretty good going for 60hp👍
  10. I didn't need it, but I'm going to buy myself a nice(to me) tractor without having to work like a madman/empty all my pots to pay for it😆
  11. Looking at this again, my Farming Friend says that 100hp is too much for topping and harrowing. I can see his point of view, as I will quite happily do paying jobs like that with an MF35. But to tow a trailer worth having for tree work, about 6 -8 ton ish I think I need 100hp? Which would then be under stressed/overkill for grass work? My opinion is the big one can do what the small one can, but the small one cant do what the big one can? Especially as I could pick up a rough but sound little classic for not a lot of I needed to, but if I bought a 75 hp middle ground, then needed to tow/power more, I couldn't? What do people think?🤔🤔
  12. Well that was almost too easy 😮 1 form on Tuesday and it's in my account!
  13. Ive just done some looking into this. I'm 100 percent self employed, always have been, but according to the Lloyd's website I need a company registration number. I dont have a company, so I assume its yet another thing I wont be eligible for? 😒 or am I missing something ?
