  1. It does look super aggressive in comparison to other chains. I wonder how it will cut when it has had the edge taken off it? Square is useless when dulled- full chisel tolerable but only just.
  2. I really need to move over, however the thought of rebuilding all my saws is not appealing, nor is funding my season of hand cutting when 6 or 7l a day is common.
  3. I seem to remember that was after a massive winter storm tore through Scandinavia. The OP is just spamming us with click-bait as usual 🖕🏻
  4. Looks like a new version of square ground chain, which is 20%plus faster than normal round ground. Really interested
  5. Try these guy’s- they make a good range of safes Workbenches - Tool and Equipment Stores - Products : Cleveland Sitesafe, Modular Buildings, Storage Units, Outdoor Stores, Portable Containers & more: Cleveland Sitesafe.

  6. The good old British Brainwashing Cooperation - the worlds biggest, publicly funded propaganda machine 😬
  7. They will have dual ratings - One for the winch and the other for the bollard. Depends or your intended use to which you choose. If your intending to spend every day slamming and catching big timber as opposed to lifting then don’t discount the Hobbs.
  8. That’s fine on a clean filter in a controlled environment - the issue with the HD2 is the speed it clogs up & the fines it can let through. Neither improve performance or saw condition
  9. Not for everyone, but they are a step up 👍
  10. Google is your friend Saul (only friend for some!) MAXFLOW CHAINSAW AIR FILTERS for Stihl Chainsaws. WWW.MAXFLOWFILTERS.COM
  11. I buy aftermarket air filters - MaxFlow. They are streets ahead of the Stihl ones, but expensive. Remember to retune your saw after fitting one 👍
  12. Just a super deep gob to avoid bore cutting perhaps
  13. Just put your hand in your pocket and invest in MaxFlow filters if you run bigger Stihls. They are not only an improvement in filtration, but an increase in performance too. Don’t forget to retune your saw after fitting. if you fit an aftermarket dual port muffler too, the gains are noticeable MAXFLOW CHAINSAW AIR FILTERS for Stihl Chainsaws. WWW.MAXFLOWFILTERS.COM
