  1. 'Pull your pudding' πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ nearly made me choke on my tea πŸ‘
  2. The iron on pfanner patches are brilliant. (If these work on Oregon?) You put them between the Kevlar and inside of the trouser and hold hot iron on for 20 seconds. It welds together. I don't have to sweet talk my wife to sow anymore.....just ask politely to borrow her iron πŸ˜€
  3. Good advice from others. Take plenty of packing etc so you can prop your gates while getting them right, check how they will open, sloping ground nearby etc. If you're hanging a pair (field gates)you'll need a throw over loop and a drop bolt, postcrete is normally handy for setting the drop bolt hole, so it sets before some 🀬 gets chance to tamper with it after you've left. Don't forget to allow 10mm for wood swell where the gates meetπŸ‘
  4. Wasn't me, got sent it a few months ago πŸ‘πŸ˜‚
  5. Ported 3120xp always sounds lovely Nice! Still remember my grandad had a 2100cd and even the slow tick over 'ding ding' used to sound amazing
  6. I normally have my feet at "ten to two"as you may say none of my foot is normally touching the tree and I'm size eleven. Lean back into your lanyard and you'll have no worries, also if you feel unstable, cross your lanyard over in front of you or choke it off, πŸ‘
  7. Your feet shouldn't contact the tree when your spikes are in, or do you mean when limb walking?
  8. I was going to reply with bomford or Wessex, then I read the post πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. Nothing wrong with the 360echo, just a little bulky looking compared to the other two. Always picked it up before the 540 husky on the hot days this summer, pretty much first pull starting every time πŸ‘
  9. I think if you want to do that to it why not fell and replant.
  10. Not quite the same but I used that liquid gasket stuff on a case mx150 transmission/ back end gasket. I didn't have high hopes but when my employer sold it a few years later it was still holding up ok and never leaked.
  11. This game isn't about bravado mate, you don't want to be the coolest man in a wheelchair eating through a straw. Get some experience under your belt before whacking off heavy limbs in one. πŸ‘
  12. In the Berenek cutting in the tree dvd he demonstrates an undercut 3/4 deep (with boring) if I remember correctly on one limb he cuts all the way through from the compression side. Pretty cool and I have tried it, you can really get limbs to "pop off". Not really taught like that over here though!
  13. Don't know personally of any remedies but you did prune in Summer (June) ??Pruning prunus at other times can/will cause Silver Leaf
  14. You missed out having ninja capabilities with a rake when it comes down to batting branches away from car windscreens and other targets
  15. The last wooden chip back I made I coated with bedec black barn paint. Worked a treat and looked pretty goodπŸ‘
  16. The old saying....."no smoke, no poke" 😁. Hope you get it sorted πŸ‘
  17. Wouldn't like to say then. I had similar problems when I was younger with an old Hilux, bought it thinking it would probably need a head gasket when it actually had a cracked head....£1500 I knew all about it ☹️
  18. Engine would run fine, but would lose water and get hot...
  19. Not run a Tanaka saw before, but I had only ever replaced one oil pump in many years of cutting, untill this year, two modern Huskies, two new oil pumps, the pumps seem pretty crap now.
  20. Jointing wise the gftk range (NCC streetscape I think) of resin and epoxy sands are best. They do different ranges. The geofix, cementone and other dry sweep in mastic sands are crap. Sealant wise resiblock is the sealant to lastπŸ‘
  21. The saws don't last long enough to wear them out now πŸ˜€
