  1. An Englishman, and Irishman and an Aussie are asked to price a crown reduction on a large Oak tree at a development site in London...... The Aussie turns up and looks around at the condition of the tree...asks by how much it should be reduced.... looks at the access and then comes up with a figure of £400 The irishman turns up without asking what needs to be done and says "I'll get ma boys to do that for £100" The Englishman sits outside the area in his brand new truck without even looking at the tree and says to the Site Manager " i'll do it for £2400" "Why ever that much" the Manager says The Englishman replies "Thats £1000 for me, £1000 for you and we'll get the bloody Aussie to do the work!":proud:
  2. Totally agree here...although you can also pick up bad habits if you learn before taking your tickets....my instructor took ages banging them out of me and i only had a few years experience before i did mine...so its 6 of one and half dozen of the other
  3. Like taking a sledge hammer to crack a nut........ I like your style:icon14:
  4. WOW getting a semi just looking at that!! great work
  5. Some Road workers left 2 outside my yard....left it a few weeks the got the hammerite out....they look a treat. full size metal and all for free...bar a lick of paint and stencil
  6. A good tip i learnt when working with agricultural machinery was to heat a stuck bolt like that and then immediately throw cold water over it...it sort of cracks the seal...also stud extractors are good...but its always easier to use new bolts on chippers and copper grease...saves time and money in the long run
  7. E£lm is good but a bugger to split with an axe
  8. Yeah i agree with the others you should be shown and not just told...but even then it comes with experience. Always remember the good old "C before T" when cutting wood under pressure and making several small cuts to releive tension too....winch is good too.....but even winching can be dangerous....Also if these trees are hung up you need to be competant at bore cuts.....which shouldnt be carried out if untrained...whatever you do be careful take your time and always look at what could happen
  9. :top:ok thanks for the advice
  10. Have a look at these.....pretty cool [ame]http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=A_UqhcByRdY&feature=related[/ame] [ame]http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=wAgAuh8yGpQ[/ame] [ame]http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=q-A3YVcgYRM[/ame] [ame]http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=q6DFC5gyrLs[/ame]
  11. I am a great hater of the "banana" cuts that were mentioned earlier....i always keep my bar rails filed correctly....but has anyone got any advice for easier ways to keep the flat file level when filing along the top of the rail (i use an engineer's square) but it gets a bit tedious on a long bar that has sloping rails
  12. yeah i have a 660....used an old cd2100 from years ago and still feel the tingling now haha.... that and starting the beast of an old 60 odd cc husky we had from the 1960s
  13. you poor bugger....hope you got some good plugs and warm gloves!!!!
  14. bloody hell....thats rather a lot.....when did they stop making them?
  15. what is the engine size of the 090.....? I know that the 088 is 122cc......so is the 090 more?
  16. I bought my 660 in 2004....been nothin but trouble....got a 30"/25" bar and can never get the chain to tighten fully (unless the bar is at its max) and it never oils enongh......i dont see why the saws cant have added manual oil pumps like to good old CD2100 Husky from few years back.....also those saws balanced better with a larger bar.... like the look of the 390xp though (the chainbreak looks a bit sturdier than the 395 and 3120 xp machines).
  17. Fancy a swap for my Entec CH25 PH (6 inch) petrol) HA HA
  18. I recently took my spare (old O2O) top-handled for a re-bore and the guy doing the work (an ex-forestry engineer) told me that i should replace the rubber mounts for the anti-vibration every 6 months even if the saw is sat in the shed!! Can anyone tell me if this is true?
  19. Yeah...every 3 chains....but what a waste.....they go a lot longer than that
