Bg86 blower

Stihl Leaf Blower, 2 years old, Sometimes the pull chord won’t pull other times it will pull extremely hard and jerky, then when you finally get it to pull normal is spits out gas from the muffler and will adventually start and run fine. This happens half the time I go to use it, any advice please, thanks Dave

P R E D A T O R  2 8 R X - Clutch Replacement

P R E D A T O R  2 8 R X   Today we was called out to a predator 28RX, a very cool machine indeed. It being radio controlled and all, its like a little robot that smashes anything in its way! I mean who needs to build a robot for "Robot Wars", you could just buy one of these right?!   So the problem was the cutting wheel would just stop dead when it went munching in the stump too hard. Predator service guys came out and narrowed the issue down to the clutch b

What should you have at the top of your Tree Shopping List?!

What should you have at the top of your Tree Shopping List?!

What should you have at the top of your Shopping List when you are sourcing trees from any UK nursery?!   Answer:-   Ask the Supplier for a copy of their Biosecurity Policy.  They should be able to give you a unique reference number per tree from which an audit trail will verify from where the tree was sourced and how long it has been in the UK.   Trees imported into the UK should have at least one full year - all the growing seasons - on a UK nursery to ensure any

Help!!!

I have spent soooooooo long today trying to set up a new tip site that I feel I am losing my mind.  I cannot get any further than the map as, when I try to pinpoint the position exactly, I lose the little man and cannot get any further.  If anyone can tell me how I can easily do this without tearing out any more hair, please do, Many Thanks, Ellen
 

Help please!

I am in desperate need of wood chippings for the allotment we share.  It is about a mile from Newcastle on Tyne city  centre.  A couple of years ago wood chippings were offered ( by the council I think) so we got rid of the grass paths to make it easier to maintain what with old age and arthritis becoming a problem.  However , since the first delivery we have only had one very small amount of chippings delivered and now all we have is a mess which looks awful.  Can anyone help us, either free or
 

How's the 500i working out for you

So after all the hype, how are people getting on with the 500i (if you've gone and got one)?   I've had min for a week now and I am super impressed and could easily throw it around all day without fatigue with some brilliant power.  I would say that whilst people have compared it to the 661, it's not as powerful and for me won't replace it but instead compliment it.

dead sycamore

Hello My first post to the world of tree people and tree artists all and I would like your advice please.   I trimmed the sycamore in the photo about June last year just before the drought and it reacted very poorly. Specifically I removed any  dead branches of which there weren't that many of any size. There was a hefty branch that had broken off and I merely removed it without a live cut. I don't think I took off more than about 10-15% in volume. It seemed to react poorly - leav

Looking for a Load of Cord length Firewood, Wareham, Dorset

My regular supplier has retired so I'm looking for a supplier who can deliver trailer loads of cord length logs at a reasonable price.  I am happy to take green hard wood because I have space to store it while it seasons but I would expect to pay less for this.  I can take about 1 or 2 loads (like the one in the pictures below) at a time. I would prefer hardwood (and a season or 2 since felling if available) but will also consider softwood if the price is right.  If you are going

New Dolmar 7910 Chainsaw

New Dolmar 7910 Chainsaw

Just loving the new Dolmar 80cc 7910 chainsaw.... Having just done my CS32 qualifications the chainsaw was awesome... It chewed through the tree trunks like it was going out of fashion... It was a bit heavy when throwing it about for snedding and a 60cc Dolmar 6100 might be better for doing that... But I guess that I will have to just get used to it and toughen up..😂 Can't wait to get on the next courses... Windblown & Uprooted.... And Emergancy Tree Works

Monkey Puzzle Timber

Monkey Puzzle Timber

Hi, I'm considering felling a 40' (ish) Monkey Puzzle in Leicester, I'm going to chip all of the branches, however have heard that the trunk timber is useful to some. I can either drop it in small sections, or in larger chunks. Whomever collects will need a Hiab crane or similar if I'm dropping it in big bits, seems it will be very heavy!   Anybody interested  in this?    Jon
