  1. £350 would be about right, but I wouldn’t be taking any grinding away!
  2. Depends on the machine mate. I’d have that done in a few hours with my big machine. where are you based?
  3. Mainly from local Arb people that now use me pretty much exclusively as it works out cheaper and easier for them. Also several landscapers, fencers and foresters. Website and Facebook pages draw in some work - mainly smaller domestic stuff. But as you say - word of mouth and reputation are the biggest providers. Glad to hear you are still busy. It normally goes a bit quiet this time of year with bird nesting season, but this year has been strangely busy!!
  4. Big old wind blown beech - and there it was - gone!😎
  5. Customer built me an absolutely solid pair of ramps to get down to a big old Alder stump! Just over 10 minutes and it was ground down to about 2 foot deep!
  6. 792F77E1-7B30-4308-99B0-F21D3D237679.heic
  7. I only use Rayco or Vermeer at present, but the Bandit gets good reviews. You see a lot of predators for sale which should tell you something?
  8. Get the stumps ground out! Only disturbs the root plate and the waste goes back in the hole. Sorted!
  9. I'll just leave this here with regards to common sense which isn't actually that common anymore?
  10. Small trailer towed behind a quad or jimny. Portable 12v winch to hoist for gralloching or to pull deer into trailer. Lower directly into trailer once gralloched. 👍
  11. Puffing Billy? I seem to remember winning a competition to name it - the prize was a bag of charcoal!!
