    The tree fell on the house. Crane

    Chicken or egg but why not crane the tree in 1.
  6. Totally agree that blades need to be sharp and kept up to but unsure what the blog explained regarding that. Lots of debate regarding genuine or other blades over the years. i have always been a believer in genuine blades as ultimately as you say that’s the part of the chipper that does all the work tbh but cost is always a consideration.

    Old Skool Cool

    Bet there is loads of old photos kicking about in albums and that's the problem with us oldies that took photos on film 🎥 Bet there are a lot on here that never put a film in a camera. Will have to dig some out and scan a few in 🤔
