  1. Whereabouts is the work? Someone on here may well be able to help with the herbicides as a good solution may be one person with a chainsaw cutting the rhododendrons and someone following on behind painting the stumps with herbicide.

    To be honest I wasn't anticipating this thread to turn into a license explain minefield.

    Are we in need of a separate thread explaining what you are allowed to tow with what and with what licences?

    Need a trailer with a one tonne gross weight.

    I think I'll be sticking to a one tonne trailer for now as anything bigger will just be too awkward for my current needs. It's mostly going to get used for shifting a 100kg shredder, and having a lot of extra pay load isn't needed.

    Has anyone on here used one of the Ifor Williams eurolight trailers? I am driving a panel van so if I do need to keep anything out of the weather I can put it in there. Should say it is for carrying a small shredder with me. Will likely also be used for moving landscaping supplies to get my monies worth out of it.

    Too big for me unfortunately as the maximum towing capacity on my is for 1000kg gross weight. Also I was looking more for suggestions as to what is best.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for a 1 tonne trailer? I am currently considering buying one to tow with my and the towing limits for it are 1000kg with brakes and 500kg un-braked.

    Roundup and Cancer ruling in US

    It sounds like a case of mishandling to get covered in that much round-up to me.

    I can understand using the money from selling the council houses to pay for new houses where they would be of more use or when not as many are needed. If I was to introduce this idea myself they would be sold at market rates to encourage the tenants to work/provide money for new council houses.

    travelling with saws

    Apparently some airlines are O.K. with saws-you just have give advance warning, disassemble them and drain of fuel.

    Leaf Blowers

    Blowers are faster and easier in my book-still prefer to compost if possible.
