Windblow course

Recommended Posts

I’ve just spent a really good couple of days in the woods with Phil Dunford Chainsaw Training getting my windblow ticket this week. He’s got some left if anyone else is looking for a course, and I’d thoroughly recommend it.

North Wales!

 

I gave up looking for a one down south in the end. I like it up here though so I’m doing some other things and making a week of it.

Nice one John . What is the requirement nowadays re bar length/saw capacity for this course . I see you had a Husqvarna  with an 18" ?

The course requirements are 15” bar and I used my 346XP.

I did have a quick go with Phil’s MS 500i though, and if I was in the market for a bigger saw I might just cross over to the dark side. It’s a beast!

Hi John Did any of the root plates go down and the stumps sit themselves back up. I did some big poplars about 20 years ago and they were pretty scary

Yes, they pretty much all did. A couple needed a bit of encouragement to go all the way down, but none of them stayed on edge.
