  1. Hi, Like many others I'm using this time to give the tools some love. Come time to do the kombi engine unit; it's a strong reliable engine that goes well but undoubtedly vibrates more than it did when new. Looking through the exploded diagrams on l&s engineers (and using my own eyes) I can't find any AV mounts on it. There are a couple of small rubber lined sleeves which I could replace but I cant see it making much difference. So my question is (if I wanted to go further), has anyone replaced the plastic sleeves that act like the shaft bearings, and if so was it worth the hassle? Or is there something else I'm missing to replace? I know many will think or say that a professional tool that has already done its stint on the front line should be retired and replaced with new and reliable, which I don't disagree with, but given it's still a super reliable machine I thought id explore the options... Thanks in advance.

  2. Reading about the restrictions and conditions there is this point: "Changes made to the business’s rateable value or rating assessment after 11 March 2020 will be not be used to determine eligibility." So hypothetically, a sole trader occupying a container on a farm (and using concrete pads etc), whilst paying a (maybe informal) rent to the farmer but not having anything to do with business rates etc, there is no option to get the container and usage rated leading to paying business rates (or not via rural relief) and therefore become eligible for the 10k loan? Also; reading up on what business rates are actually for, so long as the tree man were just storing tools, chips and logs he wouldn't be eligible for it anyway? The grey area being processing firewood which could always be done away from the farm buildings. Thanks, Michael
  3. I like to hope this technology will be up to speed in time for me to become old and inferm... it sure sounds like it would transform a retirement homes' entertainment. However if you take it to the next level of having your body sustained by automated machine while your brain roams free its got overtones of the film 'the matrix'.
  4. Good to know, thanks. It beats using mspaint to freehand houses and gardens!
  5. Its to do with copyright i think. I was told to stop using copy/pasted google maps and also the councils own mapping system and drawing my tree locations over the top for this reason.
  6. Bumping this, if it sounds like you please get in touch

  8. Hello. I'm after a subby ticketed climber for odd days here and there, never anything horrible, experienced ground crew. Between Bury St Eds and Sudbury. Last time I advertised for groundies a bunch of climbers got in touch, I wrote details down but I've lost the bit of paper so please get in touch even if we've spoken before. Please get in touch on 07817940659 Regards, Michael
  9. Hello, I’m looking for someone to help me on Thursdays and Fridays with potential irregular Wednesdays if it suits all involved. No flex in those two days unfortunately as its set around child care and a part time working wife. Based in Suffolk between Bury St Edmunds and Sudbury. My work area tends to be the Bury/Stowmarket/Sudbury area. I do domestic tree work with a bit of hedge cutting. No commercial stuff. Tickets are nice but not essential; more important to me is reliability and the ability to work together with me to get the job done in an efficient and high quality manor. Payment based on experience and ability. I think I pay at the top end. Please ring 07925853973 or text 07817940659 or email info@springhalltreecare.co.uk Thanks, Michael
