    MS261 Clutch/Crank

    I had one of the first 261 out and that was a pile of useless crap, I had to sell it for spares in the end! Husky 5 series are no better, I have got rid of all them aswell now, I do like the Echo stuff, basic reliable and built well!

    Are air dried logs to be made illegal?

    yep, all be going, I get more for woodchip than I do for timber! messing round with arb waste for logs is time consuming and were too busy to even look at logs.

    Are air dried logs to be made illegal?

    To be honest I have worked it out and to make it worh doing I need 120 a cube min, there shit loads round here doing dumpy bags for 40 quid, theres no way I will sell them at £120 a cube.

    I have given up doing logs this year, there is simply no money in logs from arb waste, more cost affective for us to send it off in 27t bulkers, we chip up to 12" anyway so getting rid of the logs will be a bonus, no more running round doing deliveries for peanuts.
