Lime tree reduction in Calne for WCC

Here we reduced 46 lime trees up to 30m in height.  WCC had obtained an initial tree survey from another contractor but we were the only contractor with the correct machinery to undertake the works in a safe and timely manner.  To make the work more interesting, the site also contained a number of powerlines and an electric sub-station, so power lines were covered, and the sub-station protected prior to starting.  And, there was the additional challenge of the trees being adjacent to a school so half-term came into play as well!!   All in a day’s work…

Our new 25.6m Cherry Picker (MEWP)

Our new 25.6m Articulated Truck Mounted Platform/4×4 MAN truck has arrived and is available for hire should you need some extra height.

It has a huge outreach of some 12.5m and full details may be found on our website shortly.

Our shorter 14m cherry picker (the yellow one) is better for work in confined spaces where the lorry base of this new one would be too big.

Both are available for hire.

More Tornado equinet and creosote timber fencing and paddocks near Marlborough

This is a continuation of work we have undertaken earlier in the year.  The Equinet and creosote fencing is to keep the polo ponies in and the dogs out and the new paddocks are for yearlings and resting racehorses.  Equinet is from the UK Tornado brand and the UK equivalent for Keepsafe which is a USA product.

Great job by Alex Draper, Dave Thompson and Adam Patterson.

See our post from last summer showing some of the 3,500m of post and stud rail we erected to make the side fence to the racehorse gallops.
