  1. I think you've answered the question in your post, and probably the hardest thing to find, get some reliable help.
  2. Bounce back loan repayments start in June also.
  3. Oak and ash removals, and the obligatory lleyandi reduction.
  4. Using rigging line to pull climber up, climber tending the zigzag. Not sure why we didn't use the skid steer to pull. 02.mp4
  5. Very busy here in NI, more so than ever. All the tree guys seem to be the same, as do most trades. Enjoying it while we can, next year may be different, when furlough stops, jobs go and people put whatever money they have to the holiday they missed this year (if there are any airlines left).
  6. Had one for two years without a problem. Run it with a 20 or 24 mostly, occasionally a 28.
  7. This job's just brilliant sometimes

    Saw upgrade

    How did you get on with it?
  9. You'll not be disappointed.
  10. No, customer was a strange one.
  11. Got you. Groundsman did it!!
  12. I was just using the straps to stop any more splitting. Do you reckon I should have used them to close the gap?
  13. Finally got back to sort this today. Customer finally agreed to a MEWP. Narrow lane only allowed us a small (ish) one that couldn't reach the tip. Braced the split, winch holding the stem, bit of polesaw action from the MEWP until I was happy to go unto the stem, then chog it down. Sever bottom and lift, then lower the stem. No damage.
  14. What a machine!! I use Freemake for cutting the video to the bits I need, then VideoPad for putting it all together.
  15. Do any of you guys use your wee chipper to chip into a mini dumper (muck truck or similar) then load into tipper? I've read most of this thread at various times, think I saw it somewhere but wondering on the practical application of it. Seems like a decent idea. Keep all the mess in the one area, removes long drags.
