  1. @Big J maybe you know the man I seek?
  2. I'd go with beach or maybe olive. Leylandii get out of control quickly and from my experience of Bay, they do exactly the same. Our neighbors have Bay and we are forever pulling it out of our garden, the trees need regular trimming and the hedges grow out of control quickly. Handy if you need a bay leaf though, I rob them for pizza sauces! πŸ˜‚
  3. Funny story... So my mill arrived and I assembled that etc. I need to get a 36" bar because the 41 is rediculous but if I use it then it's a "second hand" one as opposed to factory fresh! On an annoying note, I bent the E clip when took the clutch off to lubricate the needle bearing which was dry 🀦🏼 I bent it back but I have some new ones coming from l&s! Hopefully have it in the wood next week!
  4. Well, yea. But I don't know anyone locally who uses over 3500. Even the big arb contactor for utilities have 3500 transits and sprinters. But I agree. Just keep under 4500 and it's a fine I guess πŸ˜‚πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈ
  5. Could get some trellis work built ontop the wall and put some nice climbers up? Depends on the look you're going for really? Anything but F******* leylandii πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  6. I was tempted by that... Need to find someone who makes one of good size! There's ones online but they're pathetic!
  7. Don't suppose you have his number or details? Can't find him on Google!
  8. Yea I wouldn't ever leave anything expensive in there! Saws and utility rods would come out. It's all insured but I want to leave my felling levers, first aid kit, odd ropes, fuel, sharpening kits etc etc in there. Stuff that is all pennies but causing me a massive headache to load and unload every day just to protect myself from an opportunist who might open the back. Plus having to unload my van onto a customer's driveway and then keep an eye on my kit is really annoying! My other option is having it only open from the passenger side. I park the van about 6 inches from the garden wall so if I had a door type tool cab it would be inaccessible when parked!
  9. Yea the weight is an issue. Went to a local company that does compost. Weigh in at 2740 and one scoop of compost and it was 4950 πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  10. Hi everyone, So I want to get a bit cut off the tipper on my 2015 transit and a tool cab installed. I'm sick to death of loading and unloading the thing every single day. Anyone know of any good companies? I would also consider having a lighter back installed. On the weighbridge the other day it was 2740 empty with no kit and a driver 😳
  11. I'm interested in the answer to this too? What made you choose who you chose?
  12. I suppose so πŸ˜• I guess trees are the only thing you can destroy that can't be replaced like a bus stop! Hopefully this doesn't become a thing!
  13. I wonder what the motive is. The trees are being taken down all over the place. Such a weird thing to do if it's just vandalism
  14. In snickers workwear. None of that Dickies garbage πŸ˜‚ To be fair, he must not have much tree work on, he usually posts up all his quotes on here to save his customers time
  15. Best by far is Automatrics Mtrack. Check out the videos on youtube. They aren't cheap but worth every penny. They have GPS but also Phone and VHF. If they put it in a shipping container then it can still be found where other units won't get GPS so just be offline. They also do tiny units too so you can hide them. They have been out and found excavator implements that have trackers in
