  1. Artalk Ad Newbie/Aspiring climber wanted north Herts On initially until end of April, but likely to be extended depending on candidate/workload. I run a small arb form based in North Herts, shortly after returning after a break due to ill health I have acquired several contracts and require a Driver/second climber ASAP. Must have Full UK Licence including towing > 750 kg as would be responsible for driving 3.5 T tipper and sub 750 kg chipper. (I can drive but am currently coming towards a ban due to medical reasons). Must also have Aerial Rescue/climbing and Chainsaw tickets or be currently working towards achieving these very soon. We use good kit and I adopt up to date climbing practices and aspire to do things professionally, would suit someone who wishes to improve their climbing/arboricultural knowledge. Would be 4 - 5 Days per Week either self employed (preferred) or PAYE at a push. Pay depending on experience but in line with the industry. Both Professionalism and a sense of humour would be essential to mesh well with current team. Basic PPE would be an advantage for which an allowance can be negotiated. P/M, Email sylvaarb@icloud.com or call/txt 07947 574 237 Start ASAP, subject to paid trial, good luck!!. Thanks Deano

  3. Considering adopting a wee chipper Hi, great thread and has inspired me to reconsider my most recent endeavour into self employment. Have only pedestrian access (v secure) to my garden, no garage, live in area inhabited by thieving scum and every yard/lock up/field/garage i have ever rented has been targeted to some extent so a bigger chipper is out, just can't handle the stress anymore. Hence considering the green mech cs100 Longer term, small panel van (transit, t5 etc) with space for chipper and saws even somewhere to make cup of tea, most clients seem to be open minded to the prospect of saving a little money in exchange for chip to be left and always have the option of towing my trailer also, van would also double up as a camper for mountain biking, kayaking etc. Limiting factors; Finding small panel van with decent towing capacity (most only tow about 2t) Wether it will fit down shared path to site where i want to store it, bamboo cane mock up of chipper size does not but shape of chipper will likely allow it to. I am a bit of an animal when feeding chippers and have owned larger machines and used even larger in the past so hoping my patience can take the slower pace and extra snedding. any advice welcome, particularly on small van towing weight and real life productivity compared to good 6 inch chipper, trying to blag a trial to see if chipper will fit in back garden but have a job Monday 5 if anybody "in the club" would like a days work for them and CS100 at short notice in Herts, P/M me. Also if anyone knows or has a second hand CS 100 would be interested, only committed to buying new as second hand ones don't seem to come up very often.
