  1. Thanks guys, I regularly use both Highams and City Sub buy was hoping for somewhere closer. Will probably have to use either of these two. I'll have a look at Rawstone Hire. Tried Best at Hire who worked out to be worst rather than best because although thy have Timberwolf chippers in stock they don't seem to have any in the Bromley area! Coming from West Norwood. For so long now it has been really hard work trying to find a chipper hire company.
  2. Yes thanks Steve I have checked it out. Didn't know it existed on here! great that most of them appear to be free but i suppose i was hoping for somewhere large where i could just drive in and tip off. Happy to pay. Will call round a few of them anyway. Very much depends on whether or not i can get a chipper hired for two days. Any other feedback on chipper hire would be very welcome. Thanks
  3. Hi all Please can someone help - I have a large job set to take place in a couple of weeks time in Bromley and its taking down a large conifer. I seem to recall a green tip site being located in Bromley but not sure if this still exists. A name and phone number would be ideal! Also, I am in need of hiring a chipper for this job. Anyone know of a hire company close by? I have a truck with chip deflector fitted and so just need the chipper. Happy for someone to come and chip if the price is competitive. Thanks for your help.
  4. Hi all I urgently require an experienced climber (3+ years) with CS30, 31, 38 and 39 and a full clean driving licence. Domestic work in South-East London. For two to three days per week. Please contact Rob on 07730 666396 Thanks
  5. Hi Jimbo I've just seen your ad. I'm in need of a climber/driver in South London. Please call me if you still require work. Rob Capital Trees Ltd 07730 666396
  6. Yes PeteB, I can see where you're going with that bit of marketting! The CS100 does look pretty good and seems to have a slightly larger engine if I am not mistaken. I suppose with all these machines it's a case of feeding them with single branches/stems rather than whole heaps of brash in one go. It's the size of this type of machine that really appeals and particularly if its not a case of needing to get rid of whole large trees. Do you know if the Greenmech CS100 will comfortably munch through >4in?
  7. Hello all LUMAG or JANSEN Does anyone out there have any experience in being able to compare these two small chippers (or any others with similar scope for that matter)? Any info in comparisons would be welcomed as i may be in the market. Do you know if there are demo's anywhere? Thanks a mill

  13. I'm not sure that this will fit though. Have you used it on an ms880 to be able to get off the bearing and then the clutch? It looks like the central hole on this tool is going to be too large for the bearing and the flat spanner like bits are not going to be able to come close to the flat edges of the clutch nut.
  14. Just picking up where i left off with this one as had to use machine for grinding. Thanks for your comments. Yes, this tool that you have hold off looks like it might just cut the mustard (or get the damn bearing off more to the point!). What is it called RH? Easy to come by?
  15. yeah, know what you mean spud although those narrow spanners are hard to come by ie not in me workshop! I have a ring spanner that i think must have come with a bike a while back but of course its the wrong size would have been perfect as would slip over the bearing and onto the flats of the clutch nut. Do you think that this bearing is a bit like a needle cage that you get on smaller saws and that fits freely onto the crank shaft? the shims sounds like an idea so to extend the flat surfaces to get the adjustable on although i don't think using the bearing puller will work at this stage as there is nothing to get the jaws onto.
