Just bought this set off Rob, and very pleased I am too.  Thumbs up from me.  I was going to buy ready-made chains for my wide slabber, but Rob very helpfully pointed out I would save a fortune simply buying 100ft of chain and making up ourselves.


He was so right, and it is not difficult.


Thanks Rob.


It's rare I'm both helpful and right in the same day so appreciated 😀

If you have spare cash/grant money then I would advise to invest in your business and yourself and get prepped. Have spares to hand - don't rely on the courier and next day delivery.


Spare drive rims/sprocket for each saw/chains and if you can bars.


I am now spending an hour to 2 hours a day replying to 'when will it be here' questions - and sadly I can't give an answer [or if I do it's often 'approximate' answer which then changes.


We are investing more into stock - but when the time of order to time of delivery is now up to 8 months there is no way lines will last until the next order.
