Handcutters

We have a very busy work programme with the forestry works and need additional help handcutting.

The work is varied between hardwood and softwood. We have a very high standard as this is what keeps us in work!

We have been through plenty of dreamers that think they can do it but there’s no hiding from it, this is production cutting and it’s hard work. Stumps need to be low, rounding out and trimming out needs to be flush and neat.

Where we can we always use mechanical aid so there is a lot of working to and with a harvester and forwarder.

7 days a week if you want it

Pay again subject to experience and quality.

We pay top money for the right people! Our work is in Worcestershire, Gloucestershire, the Cotswolds, The M40 Corridor and sometimes Hereford and the Welsh Border.

With all three of these jobs we are looking for people with a passion for the industry, something that hardly seems to exist anymore.

We will pay very good money but not silly un sustainable wages.

We feel we lead from the front in many ways and have a very successful team already in place.

Our kit is a mix of shiny to very dull but we always try to make life as easy as possible.

There’s plenty of banter and our view is dirty hands clean money, workers not shirkers.

Serious enquiries only, anyone that just messages or asks “what’s the pay mate” won’t even get a reply.Thanks for reading share where possible.
