    Also the winch on the chipper will be ready to go instantly so say your felling small trees you can drag them whole to the chipper and sned there as opposed to snedding where they land and walking back and forth to the chipper if that makes sense, where as if i have to set something up it wont be worth that hassle.

    That looks like a good piece of kit! How much do they come in at? And to be honest the winch on the chipper wont cost me much as my mate will charge me peanuts for fabrication and fitting, a small 1 tonne winch comes in at ยฃ90 for a decent brand so probs looking at ยฃ250 all in.

    Small winch on 6" Timberwolf

    Hi there, Just wondering if anybody has bothered fitting a small winch on a small tow behind chipper? I work with one ground guy usually and theres been a few jobs lately where one would have come in handy, storm damage and also thinking long up hill drags and certain fells where instead of someone bursting blood cells on the pull line simply winch it over. I have a mate who can manufacture a mounting plate to fit it to the chipper. Just curious to see if anybody else has tried it and if its actually come in handy more than they thought or am i just finding excuses to stick a winch on everything ha! Also any pics would be great!

    GRCS, smart winch or LD1

    Have worked with the GRCS alot and its an awesome piece of kit, not worked with either of the other two but don't bypass the hobbs either... I really like the simplicity of that thing!

    How to quote/find potential contracts

    Thanks for the response, yes mainly aiming at smaller businesses.. It's very early days as of yet but id like to steer my business to get more commercial work as opposed to the relying on residential stuff. Im just looking for ways to get my foot in the door or hear how other companies go about it. Cheers
  11. Hi there, I have been away travelling for the past year around NZ and Norway and recently come home (Sunny Wigan) to set my own business up. I've got a transit, chipper, saws hedgetrimmers etc.. I am insured, got my tickets and just managing to fill a week or 2 ahead in my diary with half private work and half sub contracting to larger firms. I have mainly done private/residential work over the past 6 years in the UK but wanting to get more contract/commercial work or atleast tender for them. How do i go about pushing for more that line of work? Do i send emails out to the head offices? What are peoples experiences and is there any advice people can offer me? Thanks
