    Whats your multione loader doing today ?

    No doubt in tree work the panels are vulnerable, especially the front one under the boom. Most of my mudguards have cracks, but it’s no big deal. I couldn’t get quick delivery of the Tobroco or I might have had one. You will dent the metal panels just as easily I guess.

    Very Hollywood, if I was deliberately critical (which I guess is the point) locking the public into the video straight away is an odd touch. Clearly a pro outfit Al, capable of big work, which is the point I guess.

    Too much repeating, too many words for my tastes. But does the job.

    I like a simple site. A Services page, to give more of an idea of what LI forestry means would help. Overall, very good.

    5ton Cedar stem... whats it worth ?

    Ha ha! First things first, the problem with oversized stuff (although that doesn’t look that big) though pictures don’t tell the whole story, is that most sawmills can’t cope with bigger sticks, much more money to be made on 600 mm diameter stuff. Secondly, cedar isn’t that sought after, at least that’s what the guys who have forked out tens or hundreds of thousands on grab lorries and sawmills tell me, I don’t disbelieve them. Thirdly, it’s one stick, not a dozen, get real. Make your money on the tree work, if you make a drink on the wood all the better.

    Why I started Arbtalk

    October 2010 I joined (in my first incarnation) Its a funny business in many ways because unlike trades that are more common, like builders, we don’t get the chance to network much or regularly talk shop with others. This goes double for me isolated out here. So when the internet threw this place up on a google search for the burn ability of a sort of wood, I immediately dived in. I have learnt all sorts, fixed stuff myself I could never have managed beforehand, made some friends, been entertained and entertained others (hopefully) So thanks to Steve for that (and my new website btw) What the future holds for these forums, what with FB looking to take all this into their greedy grasp, I don’t know, but I hope there’s always room for this place. Anyway, 6pm here, time for a glass.

    Free speech is a funny old business. Where do you draw the line and who draws it? Hate preachers and gubbins. It as not easy as it might first appear.
