  1. I run a busy Tree Care and firewood business in the Neath and Swansea area and can offer regular work for self employed groundies (1-2 days per week on average). The work is mainly in domestic properties. I'm looking for staff with cs30/31 as a minimum, first aid certificate and their own PPE. The work would be suitable for someone who has just gained their chainsaw certificates and looking to gain experience. Good day rates available depending upon experience and qualifications. Please pm me with contact details if you'd like to discuss.

  21. Hi I'm running a 2008 Ford Ranger, with the 16v engine. I'm having a problem with loss of coolant. The local garage has done all the relevant pressure tests but can't find any issues. The EGR valve had previously been bypassed as they are a apparently a problem. I sometimes get excessive white exhaust smoke. At the moment I'm checking coolant levels daily and topping up if needed. I've heard that this is not an uncommon roblem with this engine and wondered if anyone else has experienced it and how you sorted it.
  22. Buy some etriers. Basically tape sling ladders with shaped footholds. You can choke them around the main stem. Very useful bit of kit. They were developed for artificial climbing on rock, but have useful applications in trees.
