  1. Morning all, I am looking to get back onto the freelance scene to fill 2 - 3 days a week. I have spent the past 10 years as a climber and hand cutter. I climb and fell safely, professionally and to a high standard. During my career so far I have been involved in most types of arb/forestry work and have used a variety of equipment, machines and appliances. I can think for myself, am mechanically minded, have a sense of humour and enjoy my work. If you need a hand then please private message me on here or call my mobile, 0798 6894 012, to discuss things further and in more detail. References available, if required. Cheers, Dave
  2. Thanks guys, I have been keeping busy but will always need more work and contacts. I'm not fussy and just want to pay the bills and stay outside. Pete, nice to hear from you although the landy comment could have been worded better . Thanks for keeping in touch, may finally be moving into the new place in a week or so!!!
  3. Thank's for your responses and PM's guys, much appreciated. Dave
  4. I’m starting a degree in Forestry with the University of Cumbria and thought I would start this thread to find any other applicants on the course and to also get chatting to the local arb and forestry guys. We have sold up down South and will be located in Gatebeck, just outside Kendal. I will be looking to get on a local beat so any suggestions for shoots will be welcome. If there are any rock climbers, cavers or cave divers out there then give me a shout as I’m always up for getting out and having a play. Plus see my post on the employment section if you want a hand cutter or climber with up to date work and first aid tickets… I think it’s good to know the local lads and firms, so make yourself known on the tread or with a PM! Cheers, Dave
  5. I am moving to Kendal in 3 weeks and have a few days a week to fill with work. I have spent the past 6 years mostly as a freelancer. I climb and fell safely, professionally and to a high standard. My climbing experience is 3 years climbing and 2 years as a groundsman, in this time I have been involved in most types of arb work and have used a variety of equipment. In-between arb work I have worked as a hand cutter and over the past couple of years I have had a fairly even split between the 2 sectors. I am able to fell efficiently and tidily and am experienced in using a variety of machines and appliances. I’m 26, can think for myself, am mechanically minded, have a sense of humour and enjoy my work. If you need a hand then please private message me on here or call my mobile, 0798 6894 012, to discuss things further. Better I work for you than your competitor… Cheers, Dave
  6. Thanks for the reply's chaps. It's definitely for the linkage on a compact tractor. Nice to know the correct use for it, it's great for moving timber and grubbing out roots too!
  7. Hi guys, any idea what the item in my photo is? Mole plow? I picked it up ages ago thinking it could be modded and used with the 3 point linkage to lift timber. Cheers
  8. Hi Guys, Looking to convert a 110 across to a tipper with chip box. I already have a few quotes on the way but can any one recommend firms in or around West Sussex, I'm based in Horsham. Cheers, Dave
  9. Hi guys, I'm after a bit of advice. I'm based in West Sussex and in need of some Douglas Fir poles. The poles need to be 18-20ft long with a butt end of about 4" and tip end of about an inch. I imagine this will be first thinnings? It will probably be in the region of 1000 poles to start with (sorry I have no tonnage for that volume). Could any one point me in the right direction; options are find a suitable site and remove the timber myself (experienced, qualified and capable of doing this) or locate some cut timber and arrange delivery or collect from roadside/yard or block. To be honest, I would rather cut and extract myself as this is probably a more reliable and reasonable option. Lots of questions I know but most my work recently has been residential or hard wood thinnings. I have researched this before posting and emailed a few firms and this has been one place advised to me. PM if you can help or give me a nudge in the right direction. Thanks in advance, Dave
