  1. I was going to ask you to pm your day rate....but I won't bother now โ˜น๏ธ
  2. A round file!! I bought one a few years ago. The portek chain master ultra 3 I think. I had to make adjustments to the bloody thing to make it work. It's a pain in the arse, then u need to deburr. Just use a round file,๐Ÿ‘
  3. Husqvarna King


    111cc, would be fine for 48" milling ๐Ÿ‘
  4. You wouldn't go wrong with DeWalt, Makita or Bosch to be honest. Keep the batteries in the warm when the cold weather hits and you can revive "dead" batteries with scissors if one still has a bit of go in it. You can jump start it so it starts taking a charge again. Has kept my 17year old DeWalt 14.4 going. Not got the power it used to but is still capable ( beware some of the deals that only include 1 battery.)
  5. When I looked into the newer hilux's a few years back (after owning mark 3&4 previously) I decided not to go for another due to the lower load capacity and lower towing capacity. Nice trucks though, not sure if they have updated the towing with the new ones. I went for an Isuzu single cab, ugly machine but seems to be holding up well and pulls like a train. ๐Ÿ‘
  6. If it makes it easier tie it to you karabiner first, then just a normal prussik knot after that ๐Ÿ‘
  7. I have had a Billy, if you do buy make sure it has four large wheels, mine didn't and was crap on soft ground (grass in autumn) to be honest I didn't think it was quicker than by hand/blower and emptying the bag is a pain each time. I find a good blower, and large plastic dustbins/ton bags filled with the maspro big hands is the quickest and best way to clear leaves
  8. I subbed for a firm that has the timberwolf road towed petrol shredder, to be honest I wasn't too impressed. It bunged up the spout countless times and seemed pretty slow. They were putting hedge cuttings and 3inch brash through it. Heard the big timberwolf shredder is meant to be great though, pretty heavy looking machine.
  9. Will the other tuckwells be following soon? Would be great if the great dunmow branch had supplies ๐Ÿ‘Œ
  10. Try a carb kit, sorted mine, similar problem ๐Ÿ‘ good luck
  11. I got a little pot in the box with the black woodwalkers. My wife bought me the biggest pot of dubbin from Amazon, it's the really wet stuff that soaks in better than the solid dubbin. I try to take a crap pair of boots with me for clearing up or hedge cutting/bramble work. That's what shreds the boots quickly๐Ÿ‘
  12. I do a fair bit of fencing too. Have also had posts rot off in less than three years. My supplier sells a drum called 'toughdip' not tried it but it's supposed to be pretty good. Just dip the submerged part of the post in before installation. They also supply the ground level wraps, thing these would look ugly though. I just try to creosote the bottom part of any wooden post if I can and when concreted in make sure that it's haunched to keep water/soil away from the base of the post.
  13. The new no stress unit on my entec is mounted totally different to the old. It it above the toothed wheel (looks like a sprocket) on the main shaft and reads that instead ๐Ÿ‘
  14. Simargu make a female harness๐Ÿ‘ you'll learn loads on arbtalk.... Good luck๐Ÿ™‚
  15. 560 is awesome, very powerful and lighter than the 357, but I don't think the build quality is anywhere near as good. Wish I'd never sold my seized 357 โ˜น๏ธ
  16. I use the 3leg adjustable work ware tripod, about ยฃ250 at honey brothers and have just bought the single leg adjustable 16ft. Seems really useful for the facing back sort of jobs, or reducing small Aileanthus that would be a pain to limbwalk out on. The 16ft was ยฃ390, my advice would be that it's transportation that damages them. Got some plastic pipe to strap to the new sets to stop the information chafing through them.๐Ÿ‘
  17. Prochip closed the week after my machine was repaired, they were based nextdoor to timberwolf in stowmarket. I do most of my own repairs, apparently the chipper doctor is pretty good, have spoken to him on phone for advice before. Nice chap ๐Ÿ‘
  18. I had prochip replace mine on my entec just as Mike had his hand ripped in half. It was a whole new sensor and new mounting, a bit of adjusting. Etc. Cost around ยฃ320-350 I believe, around 8 years ago. No problem as yet....touch wood. My mate tried to mend the old box with an electronic friend, was a total waste of their time they said
  19. Yeah, bearing makes more of a light knocking noise, my entec used to squeek when the pump belt got a bit slack
  20. I drop a size on 3/8 for the last quarter of the cutter. Works a treat. Have done 11/64 or whatever it is on 3/16 but usually just stick with the 3/16. I recently saw that Buckin Billy Ray had made a video showing just what your asking about ๐Ÿ‘"friends" ๐Ÿ˜‚
  21. Buy a JCB beaver breaker, bust the concrete, pull out the post, dig a narrow hole and you can add some of the small concrete chippings to your new concrete. Pulling is far too messy, I've seen old holes that look like they've been dug with a shovel!!
