  1. That would be ideal, thanks very much Khriss!
  2. Yes exactly, just safety. That sounds like a sensible option you've suggested. Thanks
  3. Its a general H&S tree report, walk over survey. Roughly 150 trees, client wishes to see site overview map and then report tables with associated photos will be fine. However, I am likely to be undertaking more BS5837 surveys in the future also. I have access to Autocad on my laptop, so looking for my best options for making my life easier but not bankrupting me! Cheers!
  4. Hi Guys, Looking for some very basic software that would simply enable me to GPS tag tree's on the ground and then produce these tags onto an aerial/OS type map. Is there any free/opensource software programmes people are using or is it a case of going for producers like Ezytreev and Pear Technology? Many thanks!
  5. Hi guys, Got a weigh up on these 2 machines. The Rayco RG13 is 2010, but is as good as new really. 190kg, direct drive, rayco super teeth, 18 inch cut below deck. Honda 13HP. Rock Machinery SGR-33 - Brand New with warranty, 135kg, drive belt system, 8 green teeth, 16inch below deck cut. Briggs & Stratton 13hp I can get both for £2k. Just concerned on build quality of the Rock Machinery model and longevity compared to the Rayco. Any thoughts please? Cheers
  6. Brilliant, thanks Woody Paul. I don't suppose there is any chance of a copy of your manual please? Happy to cover costs..?
  7. Hi Paul, Just after all the fluid levels, oil types etc. I would need to know for a full service. Does your manual have this?
  8. Hi Guys, Thanks for the responses. Yes, my main concern was around the 3/8 chain being up to the task and not overstressing any working parts due to the lo-pro not being rated for the 880. I'll just stick with the 404 then! Thanks again
  9. Hi guys, Does anybody have a manual for this series of Kubota engines please!? Looking to give old girl and good service!
  10. Hi Guys, Looking to get a new setup on the 880 for milling. Was considering changing from .404 ripping chain to 3/8 lo pro chain, gb bar and sprocket to match. I realise this is not rated for the 880, any opinions? Many thanks
  11. Hi guys, I'm replanting 2.05 ha on a local estate in the next couple of weeks. 30% Sitka, 20% Lodegpole then 50% mixed broadleaves. There will likely be lots more planting on the estate in the next few years, I am curious as to opinions on what planting equipment you would recommend? We were just going to go in with spades/spits and make shift sacks to hold the trees! Worth investment in other gear? All the best James
  12. Thanks for all the helpful replies guys, much appreciated.
  13. Hi Guys, I'm after some advice on what banks people use for their business use. I am currently just using a current personal account but need to change this so all business use just stays in the one account rather than mixing it with my non-business personal spends! Is it worth staying with a current/personal account, but just a new separate one from my personal spends? Or a specific business account? My turnover is only low <£15k per annum. Any ideas on good banks/account ideas out there? Cheers James
  14. Just gave them a ring, its not the top handled version on sale I'm afraid. Still a decent price for rear handle though...
  15. Hi Guys, Been struggling to find an 880 of Ebay and such at a decent price for a while now. My local dealer has offered me a new 880 with 48 inch bar and chain at £1260 inc vat. This seems like a fair price, what do you guys think? Needed for milling. Cheers
