What have we been upto?

Hello all that take the time out to read our blog! We have been away for a while from this due to the quick emergence of Skyland Equipment, we did not expect to be this busy within two years of opening and have only you the punters to thank.

We have thought long and hard about doing shows this year so we can meet our online and telephone  customers and also get to know what you think about the latest equipment face to face but we have decided to leave it this time and go along to the shows as a spectator and also to see exactly what we would need to do a good show i.e amounts of stock, size of marquees, logistics..

We attended the Woodfest and although it was really enjoyable as always we were a little disappointed at the placing of the pole climb and the surrounding stands, they seemed to be put at the back of the show and the footfall was very low considering the place was really busy.
We hope to be at the next show as it is the one most local to us.

Next up is the biggy, the APF, this is the one to get your name known, it is a fire sale and plenty of stock is needed we know, hopefully we can find out a bit more and weigh up if the stress is worth it all.

We are primarily an Arb shop as we have been involved and still are in the work side of it for over 20 years, we have done every type of tree work possible and class ourselves as experts especially in conifer bashing :) but we are also very interested in IRATA thus leading us into providing the equipment to the local firms in Liverpool.

Liverpool has long been without an Arb shop never mind an IRATA shop and we are adding IRATA equipment daily from brands like Petzl, DMM, Edelrid and more hopefully bringing something to the city that was never available.

With the help of the brands we mentioned we can provide IRATA for years to come allowing the end users to come into the shop and try out the equipment before purchase, where beforehand they may be buying blind online.

DMM are now in full flow with new, innovative pieces of equipment being brought out year after year to go against Petzl and we will be stocking them as they become available.


We have the Meindl Airstreams heading our way at the end of July and soon the ART Lockjack and Kask climbing helmet in Hi-Vis Orange.

Petzl will be bringing an updated Zigzag out in October 14.

Cheers for now
