  1. If it's rescue rope it's likely to definitely be worthy of use with regards to weight bearing capability but maybe not so forgiving if you fall. Assuming your not using it for rigging heavy kit and climbing I'd use it with the assumption that if it's good enough for search and rescue it's good enough for arb. Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk
  2. I spotted a charcoal retort made from oil drums, seemed to work well and portable enough for a car to use ! Googled it and it popped up on YouTube! Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk
  3. I hate to say it, but this was an organised haul, it wasnt just chainsaws. Have a look at the list, you would need two possibly three vehicles to shift that. Its not petty crime when it was vehicles as well as heavy machinery(tracked chipper, wood splitter, polaris ranger) They even took plants that we were planting to the cost of around 6k, i mean plants in tubs that were in 80ltr pots!!!
  4. Well it made the East Sussex police website news!!!! Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk
  5. Sorry, Rich Rule, nice to hear from you bud. It was my anniversary! April 1st only fools fall in love eh! The police reckon it was someone that we know or who lives closeby , Of course we're not too friendly with the neighbours, but there is literally another tree surgeon on the same road as mine with less security, just a metal 5 bar gate, but the thieves picked us. Im gutted that people have such malice, it feels targetted and planned, and east sussex police quite literally couldnt give a toss.
  6. Ive spent the best part of yesterday and today compiling this list buddy, im still looking for stuff thats been robbed. As you can see its quite extensive, time at the moment is an enemy along with thieving ***** that take whats not theirs! I will try and compile it on there when i can, just thought that i could get it on here asap for people who are buying eqpt to think about where its came from!

  8. List is ready, a lot of you guys will be sick of what's been nicked. Probably the largest haul at the moment. Will publish when I get to my laptop as it's on there. Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk
  9. I will be putting up a list of all eqpt stolen with serial numbers later today. I have receipts for it all. There are a few things I won't be putting up serial numbers of however. Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk
  10. I may be insured but they will find a way to not payout insurance companies are like that, any little loophole. Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk
  11. Insurance is 12k a year, there is more to that list, total around 75k worth of kit, this is not petty crime. It's truly ******* organised major theft. I have a list of serial numbers and ID numbers etc only saving grace could be that I still have a silky! Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk

I have serial numbers somewhere of everything. There is also some other small stuff in there like graphite powder etc. In total around or in excess of 75k worth of equipment This was planned as everything was moved, you can't just move a quad track chipper and a splitter and a trailer and a Polaris in one hit! Please anyone in the area or surrounding please let me know if there is anything offered. A livelihood gone because of lowdown scummy thieves! They cut two gates, disable two security cameras and a shipping container lock with discutters to gain these items. Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk
  13. ive been thinking the same thing, a landy is great for short journeys but long haul, its just uncomfortable and noisy, not to mention fuel economy. i think im trading my 130 HCPU this year, will see what i have left on it to pay though first [emoji12] Sent from my iPad using Arbtalk
  14. holy ****, some people are really determined. is it registered with the TER or on a stolen plant register? Sent from my iPad using Arbtalk
