  1. Thanks for the replies, client has sourced his own for now
  2. Hi All, having trouble sourcing anything from our usual supplier so I though I would ask on here. I need 4m3 of rotted woodchip delivered to a site in Bognor Regis early next week. If anyone can help out please drop me a message or an email to info@arboraeration.com with a price and when you can deliver Thanks David

  4. While lots of us are working from home and not going out to site at the moment its a good time to catch up on all of that paperwork etc so that you are in the best position to tender for work when everything starts up again. Over the last few years I have helped out a few members on here and other companies with writing tenders, risk assessments, H&S policies etc. If anyone needs a hand with writing or reviewing their documents over the next few weeks then just drop me a pm and we can discuss it, happy to help! David
  5. As far as I can tell you have to apply individually through each lender, there is a choice of around 40. New businesses or ones with poor trading history will probably still struggle. I think the main difference is that a personal guarantee is NOT required as the Gov is backing the loan and no interest for the first 12 months
  6. This is a slight variation on a previously discussed theme but I am looking for ideas/ insight into advertising to our industry. As our services are used almost exclusively by Arb consultants, Tree Surgeons and Architects our advertising doesn't need to be mainstream and using Google ads etc has been fairly ineffective for the cost involved. I have looked into advertising in a few of the industry magazines, Essential arb, Arb Magazine etc but do people really read this stuff anymore? Finally on the advice of Steve Bullman, I have started using Instagram, Linked-in, twitter etc. Do people network and hire services etc using these platforms? Thanks David

  8. Typically when we undertake root pruning it is to mitigate root encroachment to a building or proposed construction etc. Our specification is usually excavate the area with an airspade and prune all roots by hand with a sharp, disinfected hand saw. I know a lot of other people use a mini digger to excavate and then just tidy up the ripped and broken roots with a handsaw, however i feel that there is a lot going on that you cant see doing it this way and you can do lots of damage to roots very easily with a digger.
  9. Arboraeration will be having a stand at this years Arb Show at Westonbirt Arboretum being held on the 15th and 16th of May 2020.

  10. The main tool in use would be the genuine "Airspade" from memory they are around £2k to buy the full kit. Then you need the compressor and hoses etc. For only 80m it might be cheaper to hire someone in with the kit already, depending on your location. It sounds like it has been heavily compacted, do you have a plan going forward to manage it?
  11. Thanks for the suggestions, I went for the HAAS in the end, will get to have a play with it in the next week or so and report back
  12. Hi all, I have just started playing with srt following a knee operation. Currently using a zigzag and chicane with foot ascender. However in light of my knee I would like to try a foot and knee ascender combo. Any recommendations on the best way of doing this? Ideally the smallest set up that is easy to stash away when not in use. Cheers David
  13. The lighter the soil the quicker it will be, airspading takes a very long time! If you are looking to remove around 40m3 of soil you would be better off trying to source a hgv mounted soil vac. In my experience it would be 1-2 days to complete your excavations.
  14. A friend has a Japa 200 processor that they have been tinkering with and they cant get the belt on the conveyor right - see attached. Does anyone have a picture of their belt set up or a diagram? Cheers
