Re: Groundworks gang

In Rory's first (150 a day charge out) example, they were shovelling and barrowing. For an 8 hour day that's 10 an hour for unskilled work. Much more than they'd get in Tescos.

Re: Groundworks gang

It would be 150 per man really, if they're not doing much more than shovelling and barrowing as Rory says, then not many tools needed. If you're paying them 80 a day there's a margin.

At the...

Re: The 500hr grease interval claim

I was told by someone that bushes are hardened so that the wear item is the pin. Thinking about it, and from experience, although some wear will take place in the bushes it's not a lot compared to...

Re: The 500hr grease interval claim

Fresh grease is also important to push grease contaminated with grit etc out of the bushes. How good are JCB's seals? :rolleyes:

Re: Hand tools

The new grinders are 9 and 7 inch, with different speeds to match. :cool:

Knockoff Chinese batteries from eBay are all I use on my Makita gear- about 25 for a 4AH

Re: Hand tools

Would be a great bit of kit for a fabricator. I might just have to buy one.:cool:

They do it with a 180mm guard too, which I think would be the best size for that tool. I'm gonna look and see if I...

Re: Here we go again - Takeuchi TB175.

I did three years like that after a break in at the yard and again on site a month later- premiums shot up. Stealing should be automatic jail time- stealing from younger lads trying to make an honest...

Re: bobcat e10

Machine still OK? Current 0% finance package is tempting. If I get the next large patio job I'm quoting I think I'll have one.

Do you know offhand what size pins and centres it has?

I'm sure Druid has 'done shifts' welding- with his own gear and business. Just as you and I have 'done shifts' operating our own machines.

You don't need to do a shift in the industry to be a successful and profitable businessman in any venture.

Re: which Plasma cutter

They're cheap for the amount I use and when you factor in free delivery/collection it's a no brainer for me. I use maybe three bottles a year :)

Re: which Plasma cutter

I use Hobbyweld or the other similar one. Works out about as cheap for the amount I use (especially with the 300bar Hobbyweld Ultra cylinders), and my local motor factors drop the new one out and...

Re: Finding hydraulic parts

HPS should be able to sort you out.

My local agri spares place (very old school) managed to cross reference my old Schaeff HR11 hydraulic filter to a Donaldson one at half the price.

If the gap is massive, find some off the shelf beading or baton to fill most of it. Then use a sealant of some sort down the gaps. Sika...
