  1. Ditch Witch SK1050 Skidsteer and operator hire. Awesome bit of kit for moving brash to chipper and loading stems on to truck. Based on the Cornwall Devon border, will consider longer jobs further afield. Experienced operator arborist who has worked as a lead climber and happy to act as a rescue climber. Ditch Witch attatchements: Log grab Pallet Forks Scooping bucket Cone splitter in the pipeline. Look at jobs differently speed up brash handing by saving dragging and move timber in lumps rather than cut up making mess and taking time.

  4. As usual ive read comments here full of ignorance. We all age differently and all suffer differing injuries and strains. The industry has a really annoying culture of shut up and get up the tree or my balls are biggest and those who spew this guff are usually unaware of how dumb they sound. Back to topic. Ive been climbing for 10 years for 3 commercial firms and 3 years for my own. I love climbing and I love the industry and lifestyle ive never been happier in any employ. But the time is approaching where my back aches morning and night, I suffer from elbow pain and I get pain in the lower joints of my left hand. Sadly we all get old and the body doesn't repair so well to repetitive strain or injury. Im 35 im not sure how long I have left before I become un effective but I do have the desire to carry on so until then ill keep going. True that experience trumps age every time.

  6. Hello, I've a 2006 150DH its second hand but its been great for the 2 years I've had it. Recently When putting over 3-4 inch wood through the machine's power dies back. Now as far as I know my model has no stress control (or its never worked) So I've always been aware to reverse and refeed if the machine struggles but it's been ok previously with the same size/volume of wood. I'm looking for some advice, for some reason I was thinking the belts need tightening? but I'm no mechanic. Kind regards Ant.
  7. Is it possible to utilize wood chip to make briquettes? Apart from an actual machine to make them do standard wood chippings made by say a 6 inch arborist chipper need further refinement? Cheers!
  8. True, I have noticed allot of people new to the industry going for the tree survey/inspection route and as Thesnarlingbadger says to be fair to yourself you need to learn the ropes. Get some hands on with trees you'll soon be able to spot oddities without formal education. If your thinking about your age and ability dont be to quick to sit at a desk you can still look toward the survey route but more field training. Good Luck with whatever you do!!!
  9. After my first experience with a friends Alaskan saw mill i had this immense desire to buy one and mill for myself. Question is what is the best use for the timber? I've had a few jobs where there have been some sweet straight stems but im worried about stock pileing timber with no outright ideas on what to do with it. What are people doing with their timber?
