    Need a bigger shot size for a drone I would suggest, the bloody things can fly very high and have such good camera systems that you dont know they are about. Pikeys use them to check roofs for lead I am aware. A
  2. Agreed, wood is hydroscopic and does pic up moisture from the atmosphere. But I mainly deliver wood that will be stored in garages,, so kiln dried with no wood worm etc is a bit safer, dont want a complaint that wood worm from my logs has got into a house timbers. Do get regular calls about ash bark beetle in seasoned at this time of year though, that can be frightening for the home owner. A
  3. Its not me that advocates it, its a major UK stove manufacturer. My cord sits for a couple of years in the open, then gets processed March/April time and put in the barn. MC external starts at about 8% in Sept but over the winter moves out to 14% - 16%. Dont get any complaints. A
  4. As a stove retailer myself you would be surprised by the state of the wood some people try and burn. Kiln drying if done properly ( and many dont) has several advantages over seasoned, the main one being no woodworm etc in the logs. I sell a fair bit of seasoned myself, this I cut into vented bags and store in an open dutch barn stacked 2 high, works well. A
  5. There are for and against s in the to dry issue. For is that the less moisture in a log the less energy is wasted evaporating it, thus more energy is converted into heat. Against, Research by a leading stove manufacturer advises that the optimum moisture level for minimal emissions is 10% - 12%. Less ( or more) than that and the emissions levels increase. A
  6. I have seen what looked like lovely burrs on Ash but were totally rotten inside. A
  7. I had a container in a few weeks ago, it was kilned to specification. A

    All wood is good wood, as long as its DRY. But never ever burn crerosoted wood. A
  9. I find they dont last beyond one summer, UV light gets the straps, then the whole lot falls to bits. Mind you I do move mine full with a telehandler. A
  10. Welcome to the site, apologies for late reply, been busy of late. I am a Morso UK dealer and run a Panther 2110 myself at home. I can order these parts for you from Morso Denmark, they no longer carry any stock in the UK I am afraid. PM me with an e mail address and ideally picture of the stove showing the air control lever under the ash lip ( there are several models of Panther, this is how I usually can tell which model you have) , I will then send you an exploded parts sheet, There are a number of parts inside the door yes, send me a pic of the inside of your RH door showing what parts are present on the catch. On my 2110 there is a pin with a taper on it that locates onto the front of the grate to hold the doors closed, this locates through the door handle shaft. Panther is also heavy of the side firebricks as the cast iron baffle plate above warps, I get two years out of a set. Door rope is another change needed after about 18 months. If you have an owners manual that will have the model details in it. Kind regards A
  11. Put it on facebook marketpage. A
  12. Fully refurbed in agricultural spec it would be worth 20k, but the cost of the refurb could be more than that especially if the engine needs a re build. 7000 hours and that Ford engine usually has a piston liner issue caused by water cavitation, thus the engine needs rebuilding. Yours also needs 4 new tyres, thats 3k plus I would think. Auction report: Collectible County sells for £23,500 (plus VAT) - Agriland.co.uk WWW.AGRILAND.CO.UK A significant auction of tractors and other equipment took place on Saturday, November 23, in West Row, Suffolk (England). The sale involved the so-called ‘Cooper...
  13. Anything County is worth silly money, and appreciating fast. I know someone who bought a Ben Craig rebuilt G reg 1174 for top money 2 years ago, looks like it just came out of the factory. Its risen in value in that time by 10k maybe more. A
  14. Well around here it appears to be the case or has been for the last couple of years. A
  15. Agreed, my daughter uses Waze all the time. A
