  1. Hey guys and gals, Just started up another company and looking for continued contract work with larger organisations within the utility ARB sector. I have two guys working for me both of which possess all of their UA tickets and climbing certificates. Ground Control have approached me, I just want your opinions, have any if you worked for them previously? If so what are they like? Be honest..
  2. Immediate start available We currently have a position available to be part of a small vegetation team undertaking brushcutting, hedge cutting, path clearance and some chainsaw/tree works for local authority contract. Work may also include general maintenance works such as installation of posts, minor fencing repairs, path maintenance, ditching works and repairs to street furniture. Mostly for Highways but also on the rights of way network. MUST have: a full UK driving licence (no more than 3 points) Experience with brushcutters and hedgecutters Must be physically fit. IDEALLY you will have: Chainsaw ticket The works will take place across Surrey and will be based from our yard near Haslemere (GU27) 7am - 3.30pm 26k pa pro rata. PAYE or self employed.
  3. I was wondering if anyone runs a pto post basher on the back of their alpine tractor? I have been asked by a number of customers if I can install/ replace stock fencing at their properties once the ground dries up a bit and am inclined to take on the work if I can match an implement to my existing tractor. most of the runs are fairly short (+- 200m) and a little fiddly so not well suited to a full size contractor set up. what are people’s experience with the smaller post bashers? Can they stomach strainers and even gate posts? Any recommendations or advice welcome.
  4. Hi I run a company called EPM and we have been asked by a managing agent to quote for the trimming of a few hedges at some apartment blocks where we do the communal cleaning. We normally just do the regular grass cutting at these places, but I want to start doing more of the general garden maintenance The tops of the hedges in question are just reachable with a step ladder, and are about 4 feet wide. I need to buy just one hedgetrimmer that will not only do this, but will trim most hedges I might encounter. I'm wondering whether a pole trimmer might be the best type to get. I've also seen hedgetrimmers with the throttle at the rear and a handle half way up the blade. Which size and type would be the best all rounder to buy? Any advice is welcome. Cheers
