  6. Hey up folks, i thought this is worth a share. Ive always found it difficult to secure loads within the trailer, without butting up against the headboard or ladder rack. Particularly with an IW LM106 @6ft 6 If theres no gap under the dropside it gets a bit tricky and at best it’s a juggling act. My old ifor eurolight was great as your could close the dropside with a strap hook under the edge of the bed. That annoying lip on Ifors is a serious pain. Got an IforWill TIpper105 as my ‘forever trailer’😀so been thinking about this for while, a beam or bracket which locks in to the shape of the bed without any adjustment which would affect resale value. I also wanted something which speeded up loading as strapping the cs100 can be a nightmare with no load loops and its a crying shame if the powder coat gets scratched. I only do a few jobs so chipper cant stay loaded. Options were either a bracket the chipper rolls/slots into or a custom set of hold downs for a single strap. Finally got a bit of time to make this beam and its mostly geared towards a wee chipper in my case Greenmech CS100. So basic principle is fitting the beam ends into the dropside midway posts. Channel section i used is 2mm folded from an industrial greenhouse scrap i picked up years ago. Then an 8mm hole though the trailer post drilled through to retain the beam against the floor so it doesn’t skip out over the 50x30 section which goes into the bed pocket. Took off galvanising with distilled vinegar from tesco 29p a pint, took two days. Welding galv is terrible and harmful so well worth this step on thin sections to avoid grinding and losing material. Using material which has enough depth to act as a solid wheel chock then a single strap holds it rock solid against the chock and tyres take up the tightening straps nicely. Only area i’ll have to watch is the belt cover which the strap rides against. May think about domething to deflect that? Your probably be best using 50/50box as 50mm is the dimension of the trailer post so easy to pick up with side plates welded or bolted to make an easier task for DIY, I used channel as i needed access to back of it and before adding the flatbar the 50/50 option seemed like over kill. I struggled for a while to come up with the tie down points method as this channel is 80mm wide but floor cargo loops don't fit. In the end i drilled some 4mm thick by 40mm flat bar with 12mm holes to accept M12 eye bolts and picked these up against the channel after transfering pilot holes. Eventually i’ll weld on nuts to the mild steel bar but not sure its finalised yet and worried about holes if i galvanise it. Currently just fixed in with M12 nuts which works but adjustment is a little awkward. This beam will also be a future anchor point for a load/chip partition able to be adjusted so i put a load of holes in to allow different sizes which will match a bar i add to the ladder rack if i go that far. Future points will be a winch as tipper bed is quite high and 8ft ramps is a struggle pushing, so i can use shorter homemade ramps as current ones are an absolute ton (60-65 kg each). Getting hollow plank extended sides sorted as money comes in😮‍💨 Btw, cost so far is zero bought as had all this kicking round but eye bolts are literally a couple of quid if you’ve got steel kicking round its a cheap build. And with 50 box it’d probably be fine with tech screws if you’ve no welder. this is a great forum so more than happy to share and pointers and thoughts welcome. ciao for now Mikey

  18. Good morning. My first post on the forum, although I have spent a lot of time over past months reading info from knowledgeable people on here. The long & short of it is I’m looking at setting up my own business this year and any advice/guidance from people who have been there and done it would be greatly appreciated. Currently working at a garden in the in the South West. It’s a nice job but but only paying 17k a year and can’t see that going up a great deal in the near future. I’m 30 next week and with kids likely to appear in the not too distant future I think now is the time to pull my finger out and get something of my own set up. I’ve been in estate management for the past 4 years and before that I spent about 6 years in horticulture. Tree/chainsaw work probably makes up 50% of my current job role. Over the past 2/3 years I’ve found that it’s tree work were my true interest and passion lies. I have a varied skill set and am not shy of hard work. I’ve held my cs 30/31 for about 3 years and have just recently got my 38/39. I have lost of chainsaw/chipper/groundwork experience and am looking to improve as a climber throughout this year. So basically (if you’re still listening after all that waffle) towards the end of this year I’m looking at getting a 3.5T tipper and chipper and starting up my own thing. Hoping to do a mix of climbing for myself/other people as well as subbing my self as someone with a chipper and tipper. I’ve got vehicle storage and also room to store logs/chip. Im going to reduce myself down to 3 days a week at my current job and just start with this 2/3 days a week and then hopefully transition fully over a 12/24 month period. I have lads at work who can be grounds men until it’s worth taking someone on and also the more experienced climber I work with is keen to give me a hand when needed. Im hoping to get set up with about 12k (could push this a bit more if needed) and going to slowly buy equipment over the year when things come up at the right price. I’m going to increase my arb knowledge as much as possible by working alongside the more experienced climber at work as well as reading up on principles/practices in my own time. So, am I being realistic here? I know Arboriculture isn’t a get rich quick scheme and it’s hard work. But I enjoy the work and from my research so far I’m confident that once established I should be able to bring home more than my current salary at the end of the month. If anyone has any input that would be great. Is any time of year better/worse to start ab arb business? And if anyone could tell me their 3/4 most valued books on Arboriculture that would be great (esp to do with rigging and tree pruning/reduction). Any advice would be greatly appreciated and I hope over the coming years I can become a valued member of the community. Cheers, Rob
