  1. Think Reg is on the Island, sure looks like it. Thanks bud!
  2. Hi, I was born in Canada, moved to the UK when I was young. Studied forestry at uni, 4 years experience in commercial forestry as a hand cutter/machine operator. NPTC certs and all that jazz. I'm moving over to Vancouver Island to stay with family to start with. I've been offered a job drivng machines up in interior BC but I want to stay on the Island/sea to sky corridor. Thinking about getting into arb, but as I said all my experience is in forestry. Spent a bit of time as a groundie before I got into the woods but that's about it. I'm still young, spent a fair bit of time rock climbing/mountaineering when I lived up in the Lake District and I know how to use a saw, so I'm hoping I'd be alright at it.. Anyone know what kind of certs you need for Arb out there, reckon I'd be able to get a job? TIA, Jack

  4. Hope it's alright to jump on this thread. Looking at going out to aus as well, I'm more the forestry side of things, hand cutting and machine operating. But all relevant uk nptc tickets. I'm just wondering if all nptc are valid in aus? Or do you have to re qualify once you're out there? Thanks, Jack
  5. Went to turn the oil screw up yesterday and when I did it turned far past the 1/4 adjustment you normally get. Now it’s just constantly turning. Any suggestions as to how to fix? Or am I going to have to fork out for a new oil pump? Thanks in advance.
