  2. Hi, I climb double rope with a VDT. I wanted to know what gear I would need to use a foot and hand ascender with double rope technique, not ready to go to srt just yet, I have climbed before on double rope, I had a foot ascender, sling under my other boot, chest sling, hand ascender, and I think a rope wrench? I'm looking to get that sort of setup myself, but not exactly sure of what to buy. Hope this makes sense.

    Hi I have been a contract climber in Staffordshire for over 4 years and a climber for around 9, having recently moved back to the north east and into consultancy I am looking to whole sale my tree work gear. I was a bit of an equipment guy so accumulated a fair array of climbing and rigging gear as well as saws. Its a large list so I wont detail it in full here but the main points are: - LD2 rigging winch full assembly with enforcer load cell - 500I, 562XP, T540XPII and 2x echo 2511 TES - Full rigging kit including 3x pulleys, 2x 60m rope, spider balancers, large portawrap, double pulleys, light weight rigging kit etc - Full climbing kit for moving rope and static with 2x zigzag plus, ART twinline and ART ropeguide cambium savers, knee ascender, carbon spikes, throw bags and lines etc - 3x protos bluetooth communications headsets - 2x Fuel cans, aluminium and high lift wedges, lots of files for all the saws and spare new chains, 2 stroke oil etc At this point I am not looking to split anything up yet and am only looking to sell it as a job lot, I will consider splitting the list down if there is no interest as I know its allot of stuff and the price will reflect that. I have given everything that is applicable a fresh LOLER as I am an inspector and have been for over 3 years so everything is documented, I tend to keep things in good clean working condition and have photos of everything which I can email or send via Whatsapp etc and can share the LOLER sheet which gives a more specific lowdown of everything, videos of the saws can be taken and all are in good working order with all the saws, bar the 462 (2017), being no more than 2 years old. I have taken the time to retail price check the majority of the gear and it totals to around £15,000, the winch and 500i alone are £4000 new. Most of the climbing and rigging gear is within the last 2 years however there are odd bits that are older like the spikes and odd bits of hardware. At this point I'm looking for around £8000 and open to realistic offers for everything together and just looking to see if there is any interest in such a big load of gear. Its more suited towards a small company as the saws, rigging gear and headsets all suit a three man team. I will strongly suggest that any potential buyers have received structured training in the use of the rigging winch, its very similar to a GRCS with a few modifications (rope brake, exchangeable lowering cylinder) but its not something to just pic up and run with, it really benefits from an experienced team who know when to employ it and how to do so safely (That's where the headsets come in handy). As I said there is a load of stuff here I haven't mentioned but can go into more depth on if there is any interest but at this stage please do not ask for prices or info on specific parts as I will relist things if the lot doesn't go to one buyer. Feel free to message via the website or email if you are interested. Many thanks James

  6. Good afternoon all, just putting the feelers out to find out if I could gain experience with anyone? I have 2 years experience climbing and grounding. I have all the basic tickets and To make things easier I have my own saws and own PPE and own climbing kit if needed. I’m not asking for a full week of work. Just maybe the odd day now and again. I’m based in Doncaster. Thank you for reading
  7. We're looking for a climber to join our team in Bristol to support with utility work. We offer training so this role would suit you if you have domestic experience and are looking for a change or if you already have utility experience.

If you're interested please comment below or email [email protected]
  8. Hello, I will be finishing off an eight week intensive course in tree surgery around the 21st October, after that I will be available for work as a qualified arborist and will have all the necessary tickets too work. Prior to the course, I have 2 years experience working as a gardener for a sole trader along with some self employed work, mainly hedge cutting. My number is 07880749696 Give me a call if you're interested! I have already got my chainsaw tickets, so could do some ground work in the meantime if you'd like.
  9. I have recently passed my NPTCs and I am looking on getting my gear all together, are there any shops near Buckley or mold in North Wales were I can go grab a harness and other bits.
  10. I've worked mostly in forestry but I'm doing more arb work recently, and will be getting my climbing tickets soon, so I'm not really clued up on spiking/climbing a tree. I've seen lots of guys just spike straight up a tree with no backup, just their lanyard holding them close to the tree which seems stupidly dodgy if they were to gaff out. How do people on here recommend securing themselves in case they slip? There's a Japanese guy on youtube I found who uses a method I'd probably go for, but interested to hear what others think and what other options there are. -
  11. Hello! I am currently studying EWITS to become qualified as a arborist/climber. My course will be completed in may and I will be moving too Sheffield as soon as I've qualified. My previous experience is a couple of years as a gardener which included a fair amount of pruning, including fruit trees. If there's anyone willing too have a chat or offer some work that would be amazing! Give me a buzz and I'll send a CV over as well! 07880749696 Ta, Leaf Link to course I'm studying - https://www.plumpton.ac.uk/courses/forestry-and-arboriculture-intensive-course-ewits-8-week-course-197/

  14. Hey all my arborist friends. What do you think about this product?? it shoots very accurate up to 250 feet and is made of stainless steel and air pressured. The costs seem to be very competitive with other products we have trouble with accuracy. Is it worth it? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_h-8gpEJHw
  15. Hi, I'm looking for work starting in December in Gothenburg Sweden if anyone can help. Own climbing kit, own ground saw, cs30/31/38/39. Thanks Matt [email protected]
  16. I am on the hunt for a new climbing line! What i am after is a rope with no sheath slippage when damaged, these ropes already exist in the rock climbing work with videos of sheath slip and objects decking out to go with it... think about it.... Everything we use relies on the sheath, zigzag, hitches, spider jacks, rope wrench etc... so your rope gets a tad worn or snags above you while working, that rubs away or just gets worse through weight bearing, the sheath is compromised and slips like taking a sock off.... end result is you going down. Doesn't take much to compromise the sheath when weighted to tear the whole way round. I know BEAL do a 'unicore' rope already for arb work but at 13mm, its way too big for SRT or zigzag. Video showing compromised sheath and the outcome to friction device.... think about it when your climbing next and you will see what i mean. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CtURlhPssQI Anyone know anything that fits the bill? possibly Cousin Atrax potentially. Stay safe guys

  18. Hi, I am posting this on behalf of a group of young engineers. We are we are working a design of a new SRT ascending/descending friction device that can be certified by CE. Our aim is to get the certification as well as to make the climbing process as comfortable as possible. Therefore, we would love to hear from real tree surgeons about what would they want this device to do to make their job easier. So we can have an idea about what would be more important to consider while designing this new device. If you can complete the survey bellow we would very appreciate it. https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/DV3RJHG Thank you for your time.
  19. Recently bought myself the tuefelberger drenaline, was going well until it began fraying and accidentally clipped it with my spikes. So i have two questions 1. Anyone tried splicing drenaline? 2. Any recommendations that isn’t “tachyon” or “poison ivy” for a durable 24 strand 11-12mm rope with low stretch (not much to ask for i know). Was looking at Yale Limelite (because it looks sexy) thanks all
  20. hey guys quick question does anyone have any other ideas or tricks they have used on their bridge to help when using two climbing systems, as i'm finding that they're getting jammed together or caught on each other and its a pain in the arse. Thanks
