  1. Yeah I just sent an email to the folks I got my machine off.
  2. I was thinking the same thing, ideally I'd like some kind of skidding winch or capstan, with a butt plate but not sure if it would work or damage arm as you say? Kinda wish I still had my alpine with 3.5t winch on. I might just stick to the petrol capstan and get a bigger machine in when needed
  3. Good evening. I've recently got an Avant 528 and am keen to put a skidding type winch on it. Im not sure about the Avant one as it doesn't look like it has a butt plate. Has anyone got anything different or should I look at fabricating something? Guess I could look at landrover/husky type or was thinking hydraulic capstan as I'm mainly going to be on small stuff and have done loads with our portawinch Cheers
  4. If Rough Hewn doesn't want it I'd be keen
  5. Great week milling! 2 days felling, extracting and milling nice douglas. Over 100cu ft cut then day and half cutting Wellingtonia, over 900 linear meters of cladding. Loving the new loader too

    Aspen pump

    Im interested in this too, i asked the question before but didnt get very far. I hate the idea of plastic cans as they are a pain to recycled but love aspen/husky fuel. Ive decanted a barrel into old cans in the past using a barrel tap but its not ideal. I heard you can buy it in 20l cans or at pump in sweden?

  8. Lightweight, no leads, super convenient, quicker than hand tools?, I'm not knocking battery at all, I think it 100% the way to go. Was just making the point (maybe badly) that year ago when I started you could just about get a drill/driver (and people knocked them) and now look at how good some of the kit is
  9. Totally. Battery definately the way for small stuff but petrol for cutting etc. Be intetesting to see what the next few years bring
  10. 25 years ago no-one thought battery drills/tool would be the way forward!
  11. I have a smart pusher for sale, it's handy bit of kit I just don't use it much and trying to rationalise what we have
