  1. Looking for a good climber (quality work) to join our team on a self employed basis (2-ish days per week). Good rates of pay with tight knit and well looked after team. Location Ipswich/ Woodbridge in Suffolk. Please email sam@spctreeservices.co.uk for more info. Happy New Year to all.
  2. What engine did you go for with the Navara? A lot of farmers around here (Suffolk) have them so they must be up for some decent work...
  3. Looking for a chip site around the a12/m25 junction or Romford area. Can anyone advise? Willing to pay if necessary? It's for next week. Thanks.
  4. Can anyone find an official page saying that VAT on firewood to end user can be charged at 5%? My accountant doesn't know!
  5. Farmi WP36 seems like an awesome bit of kit but is there anything around that does a similar job for a little less? Say between 8-10k?
  6. Great response for a Friday night, thanks all. Will look at the WP36. If anybody knows one I can purchase for cash please do let me know. Email address is: sam@spctreeservices.co.uk
  7. Hi all, Have a large pile of logs at the yard now and firewood is fairly busy in the winter months. This however is very labour intensive with our small splitter. From experience only can somebody recommend a processor that is reliable and good quality. I want a portable/ towable one as it can then be hired out. Diameter of wood is anything from 5" to large rounds. No PTO as I don't own a tractor. Advice or tips all welcome. Thanks,
  8. Hi, I have a position available at SPC Trees and Landscapes for a climber on either a 3 or 5 day week. Location is just North of Ipswich in Clopton, Suffolk. Needs to be a good climber capable of running a chipper, tipper and groundsman. Ideally will be over 25 due to insurance but if you fit the bill I will consider anyway. Good rates of pay available, please send all interest to sam@spctreeservices.co.uk Thanks,

  12. Thanks Dan, will drop Charles a line tomorrow.
  13. Hi all, The rollers on my Jensen are running fine one second and then they jump and go slowly. The no stress then kicks in on really small stuff that normally it doesnt. Has anybody experienced this? Thinking the fault must be electrical as the engine is working well... Your views are appreciated.
  14. All, I have a position for a groundsman open. Would be 3-4 days per week and increasing. Good pay rates. Majority of work conducted around Ipswich and Woodbridge.

  17. Looking to hire a large cherry picker for a huge job for about a month. Any recommendations for best rates or companies? Needs to reach a height of at least 15m and a reach of at least 8m I'm in Suffolk. Cheers.
  18. The farmer where I rent a yard has a huge 2 year old seasoned ash that fell down in a storm. He's happy for me to ring and process it into firewood but wants some money for it. It will produce about 30m3 of firewood. How much should I give him? Or how shall I work out a fair price? Ideas?
  19. That's good advice Old Mill. Taken onboard. Will try the gloves and then it looks like a trip to the docs.
  20. Been getting quite severe pins and needles in my right hand at night time and looking to try and minimise vibration. Does anyone wear anti vibration gloves or have a solution to this problem?
  21. This been tried and tested by yourself then Ham?? Where did you put it?
  22. Hi all, There's a few gypsies turned up near me, I may be getting paranoid but I'm going to get a tracker anyway. What ones are the best and most reasonably priced please? Cheers
  23. That's exactly my thoughts. A small tool bag would do the same and is probably more durable. Will wait for the next version.
  24. Came across the RopePod the other day. Made by same guys at the SawPod funnily enough. Seems like a great idea to keep a lanyard nice and tidily to the harness. However, it's £80! Has anybody used/ got one?
