Hi I bought 700 series greenteeth from QRMS for my bandit HB20 but have yet to use them as the original teeth are still good.Looking for your comments on the QRMS teeth re longevity compared with original ones as I'm hoping to build up a stock of these as and when I can afford them. Thanks RMB

  17. Hi Looking for some advice. The roller bearings on my 130 make a high pitched metal on metal sqeal intermittently.Its 9 months old with 65 hrs on the clock.Dont want to run it until I know I wont do further damage.Could it be bearings.Its a great wee chipper and this is the first problem ive had.Bought it at Gammies Forfar. Thanks Roy
  18. I bought a new greenmech 130 about 4 months ago with a 1 year warranty.I have since discovered that other people who have bought this machine have longer warranties.Can anyone enlighten me on this.

    Probably the Greenmech for the greasable bearings and covered engine.The 125 is allegedly getting a facelift soon but Greenmech narrowly gets the vote.
