    My PS5105 went pop for the third time in its 4 year life today! decided to eat its piston rings this time, not really done much work either! shame as it was nice to use but that's it for me, wont touch them again.
  3. its only a recommendation not a requirement in law.
  4. The HSE would be better bringing in tighter regulations for the industry and driving the cowboys out instead of this BS, all this does is cater for the lowest denominator (shit tradesmen) and makes it harder for the competent, its a bit like saying all chippy's cant use circular saws because there dangerous and everybody has to go back to a hand saw because some mong isn't competent! the only thing this will benefit is the training industry as they will be able to milk the old cow even more!
  5. Thought you were living it up in sunny places! just cant keep away can ya
  6. Plenty on eBay fairly cheap, bear in mind you will need a signal for it to dial you and in a steel container it can be a bit hit and miss
  7. On pins and bushes over greasing wont make any difference, on bearings it depends if there purge or sealed, if there purge then grease until you see grease come out hence the name, over greasing sealed bearings is where to much is bad! Pete, I'm all dewalt its a lot cheaper than it used to be and more than adequate,
  8. We have green cards and 2 of us have sssts (site supervisor) never had any problems and BALI can stick it up it’s arse !
  9. I know which one will break down first and hold its value better!
  10. The best gloves fir these are someone else’s!
  11. But the wages will be even worse when you have to pour coin into a shed!
  12. Buying a 4x4 for that money is buying a money pit imo finance more and get something remotely reliable it will cost less in the long run!
  13. Anybody got any vids of a ported 200t? mine is off to spud this week for a re build and port job as I will keep it till im knackered!
  14. Ben go fir a Bandit 990, awesome chipper, heavy yes but dependable
  15. Cool, it’s not on the echo website though, where can I see it ?
