    what logs have you been chopping today!

    the valtra handbrake sure is nice isnt it! what load weight does that trailer take? we run a valtra A93 hi tech and definetly could use a lil more grunt on hills but they are nice on crane, lifts really well on idle with a junkari trailer/crane

    Climbing without aerial rescue?

    Mate honestly it matters not, ask any ex forces/forces guy who’s seen action the ones you’d think would be great under pressure or the ones who are trained to be great under pressure usually aren’t!!! Rely on yourself!! Cut small, don’t rush and value those underneath you! Any climber is as fast as his best groundie.

    greenhouse for drying

    If you can't get a forklift in a walking floor design could work. Maybe add a chp boiler to heat it and power the fan at the same time... Seriously though, if you cut back the brash and fixed the glass I think it would dry nicely in there. A small solar fan would probably reduce the risk of mold but it's a balancing act between airflow and keeping the heat in.

    Best job i've ever done! More NZ Heli work!

    Thanks mate! And the hook the chopper uses is real fancy, i aint entirely sure how it works all i know is the pilot hits a button and the gate opens on the hook and the strops fall away ha!

    560XP hot start

    We’ve not had any problems with 560s was just the 550s, 2 cranks on the same day (saws about 5 months age difference both used continuously f felling 60/70year old trees) Husqvarna were very good n were still compensating our dealer for continuing problems 3years later! Sounds like your dealer doesn’t want to put the time in hassling them?
  11. A cold weld is basically where a weld has failed or come 'unstuck' due to incorrect heat in the weld that hasn't allowed the molten components of the steels to become one! It may look okay and indeed, may last. In a critical job, the weld may be xrayed or sprayed with chemicals to detect for faulty welds. In this instance, something caused a 3mm plate to become detached and then jam and there was signs of corrosion were two plates meet and that could have been cold weld. So will put it right under our "no quibble" warranty.

    Over heating firewood processor

    Not changed it but took it off and gave it a visual inspection. Looks like new but did talk to Riko who said give it a clean with some petrol but they did not think that would be the cause.

    unusual tragedy ...

    Bloody awful. The dreadful dis justice of a young man imparting the love of camping amongst the trees, only to have his life taken from him in doing so. Nature, our cruel mistress

    What to pay for standing hardwoods, s West

    calculate your costs for felling and extraction ( plus clear up etc ) then deduct that from roadside price , this will then give you a starting figure for negotiating the price you can / will pay .........if both parties are in agreement !!! do not forget felling licence , bat / wildlife survey etc ...and all other bureaucratic bumpf !!

    Idea For A New Gadget

    i think trying to pull any kind weight up with throwline diameter line would be sore and awkward on the hands. i think using your climbing line is always going to be hard to beat for speed and convenience.

    MS200T Exhaust Bolts - Thread stripped

    The kit should come with a tap that you can use directly in the existing hole without the need to drill since the existing hole will be large enough already. You might need to buy a tap holder. Also, use a bit of bar oil for lubrication and make sure you stuff something in the exhaust port to stop swarf entering.

    Leather (for chisel roll)

    Will have to be decent cow hide as sheep nappa, pig and goat leather is too light and supple. Expect to pay for decent quality leather.

    Pull start not pulling smoothly

    It shouldn't have affected the pull start whatever happened to the bar as the clutch is not engaged at pulling speed.
