  1. Storm damage from last week, leylandii willow and a Corsican pine within striking distance of the house so took 15 ft or so off the top
  2. Often works ok, this one was too far gone , it was mush at the bottom ! Not sure how it was still standing !
  3. Pretty shaky at full extend , but not scary at all there is obviously a good few tonnes for ballast! Would great to own one but round here 80% of our trees are in a garden down a slope round a corner over a greenhouse with enough overhead wires to choke a donkey!
  4. That was just a branch an all ! Ha
  5. Yeah was a nice machine, once we worked out how to start it !
  6. Cheers piece of cake with a platform, hardest bit is staying warm !
  7. Nice big vertical crack in the stem ,hanging over the road, needed a 20m machine to get it done
  8. Bit of ash on the mizer
  9. Best one so far , I'll go with that !

    You are charging far too little, dont undervalue your experience and knowhow after 19years in the game, think of the coming years when you won't be as fit or keen to go out in the pissing rain, with tennis elbow and sore knees !
  11. About 3 ft wide and will lift 200 kg roughly
  12. I've got an opico skidster with a timber grab , handy little machine, but rips up grass if your too hashy , plan to put a diesel engine in it at some point , not too good on ground clearance and can get bogged down on soft stuff, but very handy and fast on the right job , lifts to a decent height too
  13. Yeah still running and very busy , special Santa trains start running in December, we've been working on what they call "track week " when the railway is closed for 2 weeks for maintenance , my kids are sick of it now !
  14. It's a small gauge railway Mick, runs in land , from ravenglass on the coast
  15. One for the train spotters! 60 oaks pruned along the ratty rail track
