    Found a drain!

    probably about £80 from a hire shop? rather pay £80 and find it in an hour than all day and maybe still not have a clue. i worked for a drainage contractor for 5 years and never carried a pot of dye

    Found a drain!

    Why not do it properly and hire a sonde and car scan and use drainage rods? Be a big ask doing 350 metres but I know one thing..... wherever you think a drain goes...... it never does! sonde shows exactly where it is

    Self-Employed or Employed

    I quite agree yes but also totally depends on your expenditure as well. I tried to invest as much as I could afford to bring my tax bill down but it got to the point where I couldn’t anymore.

    Self-Employed or Employed

    not read the whole thread but just thought I would say I was self employed for 15 years and now employed with a large company. would never be self employed again and wouldn’t advise people to be either. You have to charge a lot of money per hour to make a decent wage being self employed, you...

    Telehandler height restrictor/lock out

    im not sure what system could be used but it won’t be a farm made job unfortunately. It has to be fully certified, serviced and passed off by HSE.
