We use a battery saw a lot for laying mid size stuff and removing the heals, a petrol one with a ripping chain is better for laying large stuff.
Echo also do some good saws if he is on a budget, I’ve not owned one but the few times ive used an echo I’ve been impressed.

Thanks Will. How many charged batteries do you use in a days work?

A battery is much the same as a tank of fuel but it doesn’t sit at idle wasting fuel, probably 2 batteries a day on ave but on occasion 3. I prefer to lay with a axe so the saw isn’t my first port of call 95% of the time 🤔 it’s a difficult one to answer.

I haven't done any hedges, but I just want to echo what Gary said about the little makita saws, I have a little 32cc one, and it's an absolute joy to use. Light as a feather, easy to start etc, and again bought from shavey.

      Our company used this tip site today to tip our chippings. We had been doing a highways job in ecclesfield Sheffield removing some Lombardi populars. The access to this tip site was very good. It’s a allotments/ youth centre. Real nice lady who we spoke to just rang up and arranged to tip. I think this tipping idea 💡 is brilliant saves a lot of time and money 💰 thanks 👍
