  1. Where are all the hand cutters?

    Based in Wiltshire.
  2. Where are all the hand cutters?

    What about doing something for the love of it? I've got 4 young kids and we do alright. I must admit I really dislike any form of garden based work.
  3. Where are they? My boss has had an ad out for weeks with very little interest.

    <p>Hi,I have been reading your thread on handcutters, I have been trying to get into this for a while but have found it difficult.I have cs30/31 my own insurance and saw ppe etc but no experience of commercial cutting,my cutting experience being limited to bashing, coppicing and small scale thinning while working as a gamekeeper.I was made redundant from keeper in in 2000 and have worked in the building trades until recently when I have working for a rabbit control company doing rabbit clearance,mole catching,rabbit fencing etc.I live in Devizes Wilts and would be willing to travel reasonable distances for work if you were willing to put the time in to show me the ropes,I learn quickly and can do a good days work.I know I am at a disadvantage with my tickets and lack of experience, but thought it worth a try and asking.</p>

  6. Hand cutters for hardwood thinning

    I've been trying to get into this for ages but found it to be hard to get the break.I am at a disadvantage as I only have cs30 31 which I got in 1996 while at college for gamekeeping.There was no YTS course for keeper in at the college back then so we all did Nvq 2 forestry so while i am qualified i have no proper experience of commercial cutting and hAve no reAl way of learning...plus having 4 kids doesnt make it any easier.Ive only ever done manual work and I can graft but it's getting the opportunity and a good bloke to teach me that's the problem for me

    <p>Hello, I was just wondering how your stocks of kindling were going? I may have to start buying in by the pallet load so wanted to see if you could accommodate this if t became a fairly regular thing? I have a nissan cabstar and can take 250 nets at a time and depending on demand may need this once a week or with luck maybe twice! It's all a bit up in the air at the moment but it would be good to have that peace of mind.</p>

    <p>Many thanks</p>

  12. What's your opinion?

    So do any of you firewood sellers have a cutter that works for or supplies direct to you?with or without you having sourced the standing timber?
  13. What's your opinion?

    Hello everyone, just wanted to know your thoughts on something.Would there be any advantage for firewood merchants to source their own standing timber and sub work to a local cutter/ extraction team with a decent price per ton or m3? Would it earn a few quid by cutting out some of the people in the loop,and save being at the mercy of the market by guaranteeing your years supply of cord? Interested to know if there's any advantage or if anybody does this. All the best KL
