  1. Thought it looked familiar. My wood is adjacent to John's land.
  2. Can no one help with this? Any recommendations of firms I could try? Thanks John
  3. My wife's very elderly aunt, living in Barkingside north-east London, has 4 or 5 conifers which are getting too far too large. See attached photos. We have managed to persuade her that they need topping. She doesn't want them felled completely as her father planted them in the 50s and also they screen the houses behind but we appreciate that it may be unavoidable. Access is good via a narrow back lane. We are looking for quotes for the job. John
  4. We also have a problem with the torque amplifier. The tractor won't move forward unless one takes ones foot of the clutch extremely slowly. Apart from these 2 problems it is a good machine. Thanks john
  5. The brakes have not worked since we got the tractor. The only video i can find on YouTube says one needs to get into the rear axle to find the workings of the wet brakes. Where do i look for the master cylinder? Thanks John
  6. I am not familiar with a vacuum bleeder. Do you have a link to the type of kit you used. Thanks John
  7. Can anyone recommend a mechanic to fix the brakes on an old international 784 in woods near Welwyn. I have tried bleeding them but can't get any fluid through. Thanks John
  8. Just acquired another Massey 35. 58 years on the same farm, one owner, never spent a night under the stars. I am looking forward to getting her home[emoji2] [emoji2]
  9. Another sunny day in Wales[emoji2]
  10. John Hughes Woodmizer lt40 Lucas 8 /25 swing mill. Based near Dunmow Essex
  11. It is a MT8 35 HP . The trailer is a Negrisola, Italian made I think. John
  12. I haven't posted a photo of my baby Zetor lately.
  13. Thanks for the link, I have ordered some. Do you spray it on? Down here in the sunny south I have no problems with any timber except the Corsican pine. The only way I can get it to dry without mold is to stand it up in the full sun.
