  1. Husqvarna 135 16" bar/chain

    Yes I agree and it was used as such. But still a pile of **** Sent from my XT1580 using Arbtalk mobile app
  2. Husqvarna 135 16" bar/chain

    Sorry, I'll elaborate, I had one when I was starting off and it was a a pile of sh*t. Tool less tensioner, broke, had to put a standard side cover on, more grunt in a pig, horrible to start, dogs came lose and snagged in the chain ripping the plastics allowing oil to leak out. All in all not a good experience, needless to say I haven't bought a husky chainsaw since. It's th orange and white for me now. Sent from my XT1580 using Arbtalk mobile app

    Then throw them out of the plane over the ocean. Why should these scum be afforded any human rights. Sent from my XT1580 using Arbtalk mobile app

    Strip them of citizenship, there has to be some deterant. As for exploding populations, the answer is surely education but how you implement that is another question. Sent from my XT1580 using Arbtalk mobile app
  7. Making the news today....

    I don't know about all Muslims prisons, I'd rather they were deported. As for mass migration, I agree, these poor people have to go some where, I think we would all be on the move if we were in their situation. But I believe a lot of this is because of campaigns like the Iraq war for one example, where the country is invaded, left in termoil and then abandoned. Taking out Sadam Hussain led directly to the rise f IS. You cut of one head and ten more grow. Western countries should really stop trying to fix the world with wars, or maybe it's too late for that now. Sent from my XT1580 using Arbtalk mobile app

    It's not just the UK, daesh,and you should call them daesh, are targeting all over the world on nearly a daily basis. It's just we don't hear about it. The reason. Daesh believe that Islam is the only way and we should convert or die. Many years of tolerance and acceptance in this country has allowed islamist extremists to what ever they want, and they do. They have no interest in integrating into society or adopting British cultures. There is Islam or nothing. It's going to be a long task but we need to root out these daesh and send them back to what ever depraved sh*t hole they originated from. Even if they are British born and if the family kicks up a stink, send them back too. I don't see the point in putting them in prisons so that they can radicalise others, get them out. Let's stop the PC crap. There are many good Muslims in this country and they have to realise that action on this scale is needed and if they are not happy with that then maybe they should be looking to live else where too. This is not in any way a racist rant before any one decides to go there, I am all in favour of live and let live. This is the truth.
  9. Work in Rhondda.

    Anybody down my way looking for casual work, at least 16hrs over 2 days until the end of the season. General grounds maintenance and some tree work. Some one who is confident enough to work on thier own on some jobs would be good. Preferably with a clean driving license. Pay to be discussed based on experience.

  10. Work guarantee

    I'd guarantee that it will stay up until they paid the bill. 😁. But seriously how can you guarantee a feather edge fence for example? It's rough sawn wood and as others have said the quality is not consistent. Obviously you can give your word on workmanship but I would offer nothing on the materials.

  11. Do not buy this saw - its stolen

    You should report it to the plod, even if just for a crime no. You never know they might do some thing. I would definitely contact eBay, looks like the guy sells a lot on there and has a good feedback score, he may not want to compromise that. He may or may not know it's stolen but I suspect if he's confronted in person you won't get very far unless you're​ willing to give him some persuasion and then no doubt you'll be in the sh*t.

  12. Thinking of selling up, any advice?

    Good advice so far thanks. And yes departed I see what you are saying. As far as growing the business, there is definitely scope for that, but as an earlier post on the forum discusses, I can't seem to find good staff. I'm p**sed off people who just turning​ up and expect to get paid for being a Muppet. I could through the summer do with something​ one in another van going off to do jobs. But if they are no good I'm going to end up losing trade. Maybe I'm expecting to much. Maybe I'm going on a bit. I suppose it's a conundrum that lots of small business face.

  13. In a nutshell I want to know if any one has sold a small business and how they went about it, how do you put a value on it? I'm a sole trader, been going for around 10 years. Although there's no property to sell and the business is debt free. I do have a van, trailer, and a fair amount of kit and a decent customer base. Any thoughts please.

  15. Ash are late

    Was talking about the same thing to one of my customers last week. She has a large old ash in her garden and it's bare as are others. Down is sunny South Wales. Sent from my XT1580 using Arbtalk mobile app
