  1. Does no one want to sell anything?

    Can I ask what your looking to buy and spend? I have found people only want to sell you stuff that's over priced or get you on a finance plan for something out of your budget. Think everyone is scrabbling round for every penny and there's hardly any decent second hand kit around.
  2. Hit and run uninsured driver.

    surely it's a hit and run criminal offence? I would invest in a large arb or off-road bumper for next time when people see that they slow down quickly

However toying with the idea of buying a timberwolf 150 on the pretense of hiring it out with me and my kit is this going to work or will i be left with everything gathering dust? i would also be looking to build my own jobs up hiring a climber in but that would take time.
