  1. i write the latin names into my quotes in brackets tends to get me practiced and make me look a tad more like i know what i'm talking about to my customers.
  2. yea i personally feel one should be the same price but at a fraction of the time. after all otherwise you are just spending more money on kit for the customers to reap the rewards/cheaper prices, wouldn't be much incentive of investing.
  3. I’d always would of thought that bigger mechanised kit should mean you charge the same but carry the job out quicker, ie get two jobs done in the same time as one would take another standard gang?
  4. If you can take the timber off site/convince them it’s cheaper to do so which tends to be the case over ringing up. An avant or same sort can be a god send. Less cutting, less sawdust, less fatigued.
  5. Surely “folks” should be terrified of tree quotes? If they are already expecting a high quote they won’t laugh us away when they hear ours? If you have none of the kit how do you know it shouldn’t be thousands? And to the OP, if you haven’t completed a job that size before or often, stick a high quote on it and enjoy it. Nothing takes the fun out of the job quick than knowing you’ve under quoted. Definitely want 3 blokes, one on the lines and one chipping/stacking. And if possible convince the owner to let you take the timber away, rig it straight into a trailer. One day 3 lads takedown, two trucks. one short morning 2 lads grinding/cleanup £1,650 but may be wrong hard to judge from pictures
  6. They stopped manufacturing 880’s earlier this year, husqvarna 3120 and 395. All to do with eu emission rules
  7. Depends if your digging it in or folding it out. If your just folding it out it’s a piece of piss to put up so worth finding that out first

  12. I run a Mf 3060, mainly with a 6 tonne timber trailer and all I can say is I can’t wait to upgrade to something that actually goes in 4th gear and doesn’t get over taken by cyclists. I think a tractors well worth the investment so spending a bit more that 6k would be a thought. You’d really want something that goes 50kph, it doesn’t sound like much but there’s a big difference between 40 and 50 on the roads
