Tradie gets a VERY Aussie revenge as he uses a HOE to remove a massive tree from a home in an affluent suburb after wealthy neighbours complained about him using loud machinery
- Tradie forced to use a hoe to remove a deep-rooted tree in Mosman backyard
- He said surrounding neighbours had complained about noise of machinery
- Demolition labourer had no other choice but to finish the tough job by hand
- He claimed he was being paid $100 an hour to shift the gigantic tree stump
A demolition labourer has mocked neighbours who complained about the noise he was making while removing a deep-rooted tree in an affluent suburb.
The labourer claimed he was forced to uproot the tree by hand using a hoe after surrounding residents complained about the machinery noise.
The tradie stood beside the large decaying trunk in a backyard in Mosman on Sydney’s Lower North Shore in a video uploaded to TikTok on Wednesday.
‘You won’t believe this, I just got this job, and apparently, we’re not allowed to use machinery here because the neighbours are complaining,’ he said.
Gesturing with the hoe, the labourer explains he had no choice but to remove the large roots by hand.
‘I’m getting paid 100 bucks an hour, who gives a s**t’,’ he shruged.

He then swings the hoe behind his body and buries the sharp blade in the trunk.
Several TikTok users said they would take advantage of the generous hourly rate while others joked the tradie had his work cut out for him.
‘100 bucks an hour, I’m making sure that comes out nice and slow,’ one wrote.
‘I’d do it with my teeth for 100 an hour,’ a second agreed.
‘Use the smallest handsaw you can find,’ a third advised.
In another TikTok video the man (pictured) hit back at a comment claiming no demolition labourer earned $100 an hour and said the hourly rate was more like $30 an hour
Other commenters said it wasn’t up to the neighbours to ban the use of machinery.
‘Neighbours are just Karens,’ one wrote.
‘Between 9am and 5pm, do they actually get a say?’ another questioned.
In another TikTok video, the man hit back at a user who claimed no demolition labourer could earn $100 an hour and said the hourly rate was more like $30.
‘Mate you’re not that bright in the head,’ he began.
‘I own my own demolition business, $100 an hour running your own business in demo is actually normal.
‘You got overheads, insurance, public liability, registration of vehicles, tools, GST, an accountant, the list goes on.’
According to the Mosman Council website, the use of power tools like chainsaws or circular saws is permitted before 7am or after 8pm (pictured, an aerial view of Mosman)
In another video, the labourer said he made $1,200 in one day removing two sheds, a platform, and some bricks from another backyard.
According to the Mosman Council website, the use of power tools like chainsaws or circular saws is prohibited before 7am or after 8pm.
On Sundays or public holidays, power tools can be used between 8am and 8pm.
However, the website states the person using the power tool must not cause noise that is ‘audible in a habitable room’ of residential premises regardless if any window or door in the room is open.
Individuals and businesses that misuse power tools can be slapped with an on-the-spot fine by council officers.
