    What's the best old 4 x 4 ?

    Had mark 3 and 4 hiluxs, absolutely brilliant, but as has been said towing capacity is poor and they ain't quick but reliable with good build quality. Only problem I had was with leaf springs, but fitting the upgraded springs with greese points and poly bushes, never a problem since

    How to trim branches when there is nothing above them

    If it's too thin to climb a wolf pole pruner would do. If too thick for that you should be able to climb

    Starting out

    I think a bit of tree knowledge would be more valuable than saw tickets if you want to go it alone. Imagine pricing and you couldn't name the trees, or suggest how and when to prune, or what would be best for the tree, and better for the client in the years to come. Tree knowledge and biology is very important and learning how and why to prune properly. Good luck ๐Ÿ‘

    Stolen timberwolf recovered in Essex

    Probably, just nice to see one being recovered rather than another taken.

    Stihl ms261 diy

    Replace air filter (if needed), change spark plug, replace fuel filter (in tank) clean down inside of cooling fins etc on saw properly. Clean spark arrestor on exhaust ( if your saw has one). Check and replace drive sprocket if worn. Check the brake band for wear on the chain brake. Check starter cord for wear (mainly both ends) normally worth replacing if you've taken it apart to check properly. I'm sure people will add more to my list. Good luck

    Boot repair?

    Also does anyone know of a glue suitable for sticking the rubber surrounds to the leather in my woodwalkers? The boots are still good but the rubber is peeling like an orange ๐Ÿ™„ I've tried shoe glue but after a good climb it comes loose

    Best wheel clamp

    I'm looking to add security to my chippers, both in yard and on some jobs. I have a tw125 and entec 25ph, what would be the best recommendations? I don't mind paying good money if it does the job. Not interested in the ยฃ25 where you can still get to the wheel nuts or deflate tyre to remove. Thanks in advance ๐Ÿ‘

    Best wheel clamp

    That's exactly the sort of thing I'm after, thank you. I appreciate that a determined theif will get anything they want.....but we can slow them down ๐Ÿ‘

    after a pressure washer

    Agreed, have used diesel hot washers before, very good but was put off by an old car body repairer explaining that the steam can actually increase the effect any salt has on the underbody.... Not sure what truth was in it but it does make sense

    after a pressure washer

    I have the old style k7 karcher. It's very good. You can put chemical on with it also ( I refill the karcher bottles with my own wash and wax) the underbody washer kit is also worth it, try to do mine regularly in winter, don't get soaked and only takes a few minutes ๐Ÿ‘

    New top handle purchase???

    Got a 360 echo as a backup the the 540husky. It's alright and on hot days I would pick it up first. Does seem a horrible thing to pull round a tree with you with its fat arse (exhaust)
