  1. Thanks Mick I will look them up then. I want a grab that can hold vertical trunks/limbs etc. I have a hydraulic rotating grab which is great but only for timber which is already on the floor.
  2. Hi Mick, Could I please ask what grab attachment this is, I am looking for something like this for my Avant?
  3. Unfortunately I agree with most, that is, all you really have are equipment assets as business value to sell on, nothing else. I appreciate you have a very good reputation however as important as this is to you & your historic customers this doesn't hold a monetary value to a potential buyer. Also if you are not in country there's no way you can run your business (even via an in country manager). Its' just not a longterm viable prospect. Eventually all will crumble. I would say if you are leaving the country, make a clean break, enjoy yourself and forget about the business. If you are that attached to it (the business) perhaps its not the right time to move etc. Anyway good luck to you with whatever you decide to do
  4. Mick u makes me laugh but true!! For what its worth and as I have nothing else to do I walk normally, just to confirm that's spelt WALK!
  5. I wish I had some goats! Access is rubbish so larger machines isn't an option. Anyone use a basic home garden waste shredder as I wondering if that would handle the waste. I can't get my chipper into the garden as theres too much to drag.
  6. Can any advise the best way to clear a jungle of brambles 15ft high and dense? I do not know what's in this garden so I don't think running any machinery into the unknown is a good idea. I am guessing hedge trimmers and a lot of hardworking but looking for the best option.
  7. Get a Clearview 500 then your fire will never go out!!
  8. Do these type of companies allow for one month trials for example, sounds interesting?

  10. Yep that happened to me. Turned out there were two accounts (something behind the web creating scene) over the last 5 years when websites were changed. Nightmare. Got them back but it took too long and had zero web presence for a while.
  11. These situations are pretty simple from what you describe, TM required. It's tempting not to include this to win a job but in the end it's stupid not to do so. I have just looked at a Willow tree on a bend of an A road myself. I told the customer that TM was needed and she just couldn't understand why it was cost what it cost and why it is even needed first place. Basically I just left as soon as I could without trying to be rude. Ps this tree was just hit and damaged by a bus and the police were called to deal with the mess, hence the call.
