    Go on then, What was your best Present??

    We got my 3year old boy one of these diggers, it has been the nuts, all metal with a breaker, bucket and grab. The bloody thing even smokes. The controls for the arm are the same as a real digger so I expect him to be a whizz next year in real life 🀣 keeps bashing the wife's Oak dresser though πŸ™„

    TIMBERWOLF TW`150 ROLLERS SPED UP

    My old entec did this years ago. Check the belt tension (to the hydraulic pump) and also the hydraulic oil level. Hope it sorts it out πŸ‘

    The Gerry beranek dvds are very good. My Mrs bought me the climbing one and cutting and rigging in the tree years ago. There's a felling one too now but don't have that... Don't have many 300ft trees round here 😁

    Fantasy to reality, hot saws... Spud? and others

    Have you watched the recent reg coates video? Even the American guys were mentioning spud. Which is very good considering there seems to be more "saw doctors" over that side of the water. I currently don't have any modded saws, although it has crossed my mind especially on the 660. I would imagine the older style saws would be more worth it as they seem sturdier built and will last longer than the new high performance throw away crap. Just my opinion.

    Get yourself down to Essex and booked into Steve Woodley's hewing course.......then you could change your name to 'smooth hewn' and would be more employable πŸ˜‚, nice photos by the way πŸ‘

    Leave cambium saver and ropes in tree over night?

    Can't you just slide it off the end of the rope (not the spliced eye end obviously)?

    Leave cambium saver and ropes in tree over night?

    The easiest way is with a cam saver with a mallion rapid one end as the small ring. You can set your throw line, then put the throw bag through the big ring ( attach a karabiner if it falls out) and the the other line at ground level can be put through the mallion rapide or fed through the small ring if it can't be unscrewed. Pull into place with a flip action to get into the crotch. Then attach your rope to the line, I use a running bowline with several half hitches (one near the end of rope), very important so that your rope goes through the rings easily. Should be loads of video on YouTube. Other ways of setting them. And you can even feed the throw line through the small ring before you throw.....but I always forget that πŸ˜‚

    Leave cambium saver and ropes in tree over night?

    This had been said before, what if a squirrel nibbled at it? Its not really worth it. If I have a job that's more than one day I would retrieve everything and just leave a throw line or cheap polypropylene in place. With customers consent of course

    McDermotts rope brake

    Maybe people do use old climb lines for rigging but on an instructional/advertisement video it's pretty poor. Especially on a piece of rigging kit designed to prevent shock (lowering large wood). I would like to see their risk assessment and method statement if that had to make an insurance claim. "Yes judge my climb....erm I mean rigging rope has up to date loler" πŸ˜‚

    Which Welder

    I have a 180 amp stick welder that can be turned up higher with industrial electrical supply. It wasn't that expensive, Β£180 I think. I bought a gasless mig hoping it would make welding thin stuff easier but it's horrible. I normally just stick weld everything now. The gasless wire is expensive as it has a built in flux. Also it blows just as many holes in thin metal as an arc welder so really no advantage

    Stick with HC or switch to ZZ?

    That's what I'd heard, was hoping they'd do a slightly larger version for 13mm.... But nothing as yet
