Tree work in Spain.

Recommended Posts

I work for an international charity and we have properties all over the place. I get to go out once a year to Spain to work on our trees.
Varied stuff, some big elms, lots of Corsican pines and poplars as well, among other things.
To answer Martyn, very belatedly. It’s very difficult to hire decent saws out there, nigh on impossible down south. The Civil Aviation Authority won’t allow used petrol engines in the hold on any airline so it’s either, drive over via the ferry or take your chances hiring.
Not enough work to justify buying saws out there.
If you look at my avatar you can see me nibbling away at a big elm stem with a 50cc Oleo-Mac on an 18” bar.

Surely it is not beyond the wit o man to design a strong, secure hermatically sealed container, that could be aircraft approved, for to put the properly emptied and vented chainsaw engine in?

Just checked, since I had too, as a frequent non-flier, since one is permitted aerosols in checked luggage, why would a 2-stroke engine in an approved sealed container be any different?
