  12. Hi, I'm a self employed hand cutter based in Aberdeenshire. Fully insured and ticketed with all my own gear!(CS-30,CS-31,CS-32,CS-34/35) I'm fairly new to it but I have about two years full experience. Most of work is cutting edge trees and oversize.Although a fair lot of hardwoods and the occasional steep bank to fell. What should I be charging per hour and per day?
