  1. Ive used Rotatech chains for a while now with no issues but just bought new chains for ms 440 & ms 660. 25 inch 84 Drive links & 36 inch 114 drive links. We just can't get them on the bar. Spoke to rotatech and they said they ve had no issues before. Anyone else have this problem on big chains?

    Advice on possible new truck

    Buy a tipper mate, no question. you might chip into bags but what about logs, you don't always want to hand ball them off. What if you buy a bigger chipper you can chip straight onto the truck and tip.

    Anyone use a "safety razor"?

    I agree with all of this especially the fact that double edge blades are so much cheaper than cartridges. I just bought 100 Gillette blades for £9 delivered off ebay. I can probably get about 4 shaves out of one blade. A good starter razor would be the Edwin Jagger DE89

    First straight razor shave.

    Hey mate, I use the double edge razor blades not the same I know but still super sharp & cheap. Blades work out about 15p each, better than any cartridge on the market imo.

    Walkie Takie Headets

    This seems like a great price compared to the sena headsets which are about £250 for a pair.

    Isuzu or Cabstar????

    I got a new 15 plate cabstar this year after having the old model. Huge improvement in the cab space, new gadgets including Bluetooth, electric windows etc. Was also one of the cheapest vans & I looked at everything. Great workhorse too. I'd have preferred the canter but there with the vat on it there was about 9k of a difference.

    When the customer does not pay

    I think you decrease your chances of getting paid if you start dumping chips etc at someones door or site. Very tempting tho.

    Kanga mini loaders

    What about the sherpa mini loaders? Doesn't look as good as the Vermeer or the boxer but looks better than the kanga. Anyone tried them out?
