  1. Past hour
  2. Hey Could you give me ring please. 07512646986 Thanks Matt
  3. Pete I'm available tomorrow if you need anybody. Thanks Matt
  4. Best of luck with things in the future, I always rate your help and advice highly. John
  5. Today
  6. Yes that's beyond re use. People on here have previously said those circlips with tails cause problems. I still use them as I cannot deal with the plain ones.
  7. Haha, cheers. I’ll read it in the morning then!
  8. OK, maybe I’m a weirdo! PM me a link to your book can you mate, I am keen to read it.

  10. Pulled the pot today very light scoring on the exhaust side. But very heavy gouges on the side above the gudgeon pin suspect the missing Curley tail from the pin clip is to blame. Looks like it’s a parts saw ☹️☹️ On closer inspection found the circling end wedged in the top of the cylinder just next to my screwdriver
  11. Good man. 140 poplars would have me investing in kit too.
  12. A lovely Turkish Hazel I spotted in the Oslo Botanical Gardens today.
  13. Just curl one out on their driveway as you leave with a wallet full of notes.
  14. I am still present and correct. Your concern for my wellbeing is most touching, not. Update: business continues to grow, investing heavily in kit. Just completed SRT. About to undertake HGV medical. Once that completed, prov licence application will wing off to DVLA. Probably will do Class 2 but we will see, new options now available from HM Govt in light of current HGV driver shortage. 140 poplar contract is underway but modified to fell and re-plant. NHS work only occasional atm, which suits me. Ta for advice, again A
  15. In a perfect world... I stand by desensitization. There are two types of desensitized dog owners. 1. Those who were raised from birth around dogs. These folks inherit the desensitization of their parents. Further, they associate the smell (subconscious, as they don't actually register it anymore) and the feel of squishing underfoot, with happy childhoods. 2. Those who aquired dogs later in life. They started out with good intentions, picking up etc, but soon tired of the ordeal and lapsed into apathy and desensitization, much like people in a warzone or an abusive relationship. Then there are the scumbags, who exist, but are the minority.
  16. If it's a Volta unit (or any type) the specification of the wood chips is critical. Smaller arb type chippers struggle to produce the required quality, and even when using specialised biomass chippers you still have to screen out the fines. A relatively small % of fines/poor quality fuel will soon stuff up your unit, as most owners found out early on in their ownership (us included). The specification from Volta is not tight enough - size class and moisture content - though they wouldn't admit it.
  17. You must know some weird dog owners. There’s only one thing worse than picking up dog shit, and that’s not picking up dog shit. If you’re not prepared to pick up dog shit every day then don’t get a dog.

  19. What an amazing looking machine!
  20. Also the Sherpa loaders "slightly" more compact and cheaper then the cast, hadn't had any hard use from mine yet but great for tidying yard and moving logs about and fits in the van.
  21. 17.5k ex vat. Half price of a new 19-28, not that you can buy one brand new now. We didn't get to the point of advertising. I have a 2014 coming in next month and a 2009 coming in this week. Thanks
  22. Self seeded might still be struggling with competitive or sub-optimal growing conditions - just saying, self seeding doesn’t guarantee growth to maturity. There needs to be a natural ‘failure rate’ such that the strongest push through. It might be that other faster growing trees / vegetation are out competing self seeded trees. Certainly agree 2018 presented considerable challenges which were observable in crown of many trees. Hopefully just a particularly bad year in a 100 and established trees will shrug it off over a longer period.
  23. How do the Brazilians manage with 100% ethanol fuel? I tried googling this and can't find anything.
  24. Well, maybe you're the exception then. All the dog owners I know are desensitized, and not scumbags. Their own properties are beshitted past redemption and they just don't care. I believe they develope a highly efficient sixth sense for avoiding the feces of their own animals....I remember a few days in Granada, some years ago. The old city was all roundy cobblestone, and the feces collected and impacted between the cobbles, forming a kind of substrate to the street surface. Probably centuries worth of deposits. Horrific.
