  1. Hi all, I hope it's OK to post this here! I've got a greenmech arborist 130 that's going to be going up for sale shortly but can't find one similar for price comparison. It's a 2016 model, done just under 700 hours, 3 sets of blades, lockable hitch, spare wheel and usual greenmech rust on the bodywork. I was thinking £5500 would be a reasonable price. Am I about right?
  2. Thanks, I can't find much information on bacterial wetwood. Is it harmful to the tree at all?
  3. Noticed this orange staining on a Beech in a woodland I look after and I'm not sure what it is? You can also see in on of the pictures that there is an area of decay in the stem near the goo. The general health of the tree looks to be good but I'm wondering if it needs to come down as it is next to a road? Cheers!
  4. I'm thinking about joining the 21st century and getting a tablet for work. I'm used to taking tablets for my aching back and legs etc. but not electronic ones! I've always taken a paper diary with me for quotes but I'm thinking of the benefits using a tablet might have. I would like one that would link to my chrome book at home and my samsung phone so that I can access documents that I have created on them. Is the obvious choice something like a galaxy tab? I also like the look of the huawei or maybe the amazon fire? What are people using/recommending? I don't want an ipad as being an android user, they look way to complicated!!
  5. Thanks but it would only be a couple of days hire
  6. Thanks eggs. I've already emailed them for a price. I was just wondering if there was any one else ?
  7. I'm looking to hire an avant type loader in the Midlands nr Lichfield. Does anyone on here hire them out or have any recommendations of where to hire one from please?
  8. well lets hope they have a long reach as the steaks are high!
  9. Ordered the one Mr Bulman recommended. I'll let you know how it performs. Steve's reputation is at steak here!!
  10. That's spot on thanks Steve. I can also get the groundy to pass my coffee up using the fruit picker
  11. Just found this one that seems like a bargain! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Wolf-Garten-Extendable-Bypass-Tree-Loppers-Telescopic-Pruner-Garden-Branch-4M/192509728543?epid=14006278479&hash=item2cd279571f:g:PKsAAOSwcj1aAIl~
  12. Thanks. Do they do an adjustable angled pruning head?
  13. Hi all. I've been using the Fiskars up86 pruner until it gave up the ghost on me the other day. I have been happy with it but there is no where around me that sells the up86 anymore (4m extendable reach) so I'm going to have to order one off the interweb. Before I do though, can anyone recommend any others. I have been looking at the Gardena or Wolf Garden ones also. I would like to keep the price below £100 if possible. Cheers
  14. I've just double checked the planning portal and I've definitely ticked the work in conservation area box not the TPO one. So if I was to crack on before the 'decision' was made there would be no comeback on me in your opinion? I'm just a bit cautious on this one as the tree officer is renowned for being a bit of a stickler!
  15. Thanks Gary. I ticked the box for 'work in a conservation area' box so I'm not sure why I got this response? So would you just carry on regardless after the 6 weeks?
