    Taking out this mature dead Scots pine. Lots of black bleeds down the trunk. My first thought was Phytopthora. Any other suggestions. ?

    Ms500i or still 661?

    Depends what it’s for. Quite different saws.
  5. 2/3 days work available next week. Based in Haslemere, jobs are in Basingstoke and near Chichester so could meet on site if it alleviates transport issues. Please send me a PM if interested. Many thanks.

    Shunting trailers in low is fine. Would only be an issue shunting if you locked the diff on tarmac. They tow 3.5 ton so that’s all good. Why would you want to access the back from between the seats ? Best to keep kit separate from the cab. Landrovers only hold silly money because they don’t make them any more. [emoji106]

    Personally I don’t see why a single cab / tipper conversion wouldn’t replace a 110. I’ve owned both and it’s Toyota for me. They do the same thing. But everyone has their preferences. Landrover are great but I can do exactly the same in comfort [emoji106]

    I’m a Toyota convert. Landcruiser amazon are superb in every way. I replaced a TD5 hi cap with a hilux invincible. There isn’t anything the landrover will do that the hilux won’t do. One thing a defender does benefit from is thick aluminium body work that takes a knock well.

    [emoji23] exactly. I gave up on those jalopy’s years ago. Land rovers are great for enthusiasts but if you want a reliable work vehicle look elsewhere.

  12. Anyone on here able to supply cleft post and rail ? The stock from my local AVS is consistently rubbish. The ends of the rails and the mortises always require fettling which is a massive waste of time on site. A lot of the post are very twisted. Spoke to another local producer but he was double the cost of AVS. I’m Based in Haslemere, Surrey / W Sussex border. Drop me a message if you might be able to help. Cheers

    how to deal with an employee

    I agree with Mick and Big J. This guy sounds lame but if you can’t replace him at the moment suck it up for now and choose your time when it suits you to let him go. If he is an employee surely he has a contract or he should do. Everything he has done will be breeching it. In which case record what’s been done and give him a written warning in the first instance. If he’s not employed and is actually casual but regular labour just replace him when it suits you. Blowing up about these things Is often unproductive. On the plus side to blowing up at least you won’t need to take him home that day ......

    Not engine dead but there is a cheap dosko for sale in Thursley. I think someone has cleaned up all the old 1st call trees kit and is selling it. It’s on Facebook marketplace. I take it danequip can’t help with a used part either ?
