  2. Make sure you check with Vodafone that the phone / package will work with Wifi Calling. As far as I know being on the Vodafone network is not enough you have to buy the phone / package direct from Vodafone to get it to work.
  3. Are you on Vodafone? Then just get a phone that supports Wifi Calling........ http://www.vodafone.co.uk/explore/network/network-improvements/wi-fi-calling/?cid=vnty-vod-auto/dvynfvtq(uv(bx)ijfjuneejth
  4. We are now selling the Italian built DOCMA portable forestry winches. They are very well built and have a 54cc 2-stroke engine so run on the same fuel as a chainsaw. They are also superbly lightweight using aluminium to reduce weight. Both models weigh only 10.5 kg. The VF80 Bolt has a pull of 815kg and a line speed of 26m/m The VF105 Red Iron has a pull of 1050kg and a line speed of 20m/m Both models have a good range of accessories including rope, slings, chokers etc. The VF80 Bolt is priced at £1050 + VAT and the VF1050 Red Iron is £1100 + VAT For more information please see our website: DOCMA VF80 Bolt - Treadlight Forestry DOCMA VF105 Red Iron - Treadlight Forestry 01824 538 638 07970 544 901 contact@treadlightforestry.co.uk
  5. Ok had the Echo out on demo for the last two days. It is more solidly built than the Sthil but did not feel as quick. It does the job but god its heavy after a few hours!! Based on my aching arms I have started looking at the battery Husqvarna. Husqvarna Pole Saws 536LiPT5 It is only 6.2 kg inc battery and has the motor at the saw head end so no drive shaft to fail. But will it last a days work in the woods with no hope of charging? They claim 1 battery = 1 fuel fill. Based on that 3 batteries would get me through the day. But will it?
  6. We need a telescopic polesaw for forestry work. Choice seems to be Stihl, Husqvarna or Echo: Husqvarna Pole Saws 525PT5S Petrol telescopic pole pruners | STIHL Echo ppt-265es Long Reach Power Pruner I used the Stihl HT 131 today and it worked well. I have the Echo PPT-265ES on demo tomorrow. Anyone used the Husqvarna?
  7. We sell the PCW5000 and really rate it. I use one daily in my contracting business. The accessories you can get for it are brilliant and make it very versatile. I like the look of the VF80 but have not used one. The PCW5000 is rated at 1000kg and the VF80 is rated at 815kg.
  8. We have a number of contracts coming up and need some extra cutters who are based near Ruthin - North East Wales. Must be self-employed and have own transport. Must have recent felling tickets as this is a requirement of the contract – no exceptions. Other tickets that would be useful – Windblow, strimmer / brush-cutter, pole-saw, first aid, tractor based winch / forwarding trailer. If you will be available for work over the next nine months and think you have the right skills / experience then please email me your C.V: contact@treadlightforestry.co.uk Feel free to pm if you have any questions.
  9. So this deal is shaping up nicely. The first batch of ten winches will be on a special offer price of £1450 + VAT + delivery each. (RRP is £1640 + VAT) Four winches have already been pre-ordered leaving six remaining. Delivery will be in July. Please get in touch if you are interested.

  11. I am not sure if the guys on the Swedish forum were discussing an earlier model but the current Kinetic 8x8 can be driven from the 'reverse' crane operation position by using controls on the spool block.
  12. Love the last log on this one: There is always room for one more!!
  13. What rope are you running Dean O? I have been using my PCW5000 on all sorts of jobs for a couple of years and only have a small amount of wear. As you say the capstan is easy to replace but it sounds like you are generating too much friction?
  14. Hi Lee I sell the PCW5000 portable capstan and really rate it: Portable Forestry Winch - PCW5000 - Treadlight Forestry I use one in my low impact contracting business and it is great for moving timber, windblow, assisted felling etc. 50cc Honda 4 stroke and 1000kg pulling power. One of the best things about it is the array of accessories you can get for it which make it really adaptable / versatile. More info here: Home I have not used the Docma winches but I have been in contact with the company and have been waiting for an excuse to bring a batch over from Italy: Verricelli, verricelli forestali, verricelli a motore Drop me a PM if you are interested in either the PCW5000 or one of the Docma winches and I can work out a really good deal for you.
  15. The machines look great but the questions you need to answer: Can you find enough work - year round to keep the machines busy? Can you really shift 40 ton in a day. Every day? Can someone else do the job cheaper with a bigger machine? The problem I have found is that most woodland owners don't really care about the low impact benefits they simple want to know how quickly and how cheap can you do the job. If we can educate the owners then yes I think the small machines can be viable. Riko UK have now started bringing in a mini forwarder which looks very capable. If anyone is interested drop me a PM and I will get some specs and pricing. T8 - KINETIC 8x8 [ame] [/ame]
