  1. Fond memories of Otterburn in the 90's, reading pace notes in a cosworth at night was interesting, bloody quick in sections and lots of yumps to settle the stomach. Those were the days motoring news tarmac rallies.
  2. What's the thinking about ropes for Spiderjack 2. Am using drenaline at mo and don't particularly like it, hard on the hands and creeping through SJ. Previous rope was blue tongue much nicer to grip I am 58 yrs young. Was thinking of moving drenaline over to use as my SRT rope and getting a new DRT rope.
  3. Really depends on what pipes are available on the boom at the moment, If its piped to the tip of the boom already with a pair of pipes your almost there.

    Maybe not from the petrol, could it be coming into via the tank breather system, dust from chipping or exhaust particulates?
  5. More jobs for the boys again.

    Bald, The ones at ours over the Balloch from you, are slow to come to leaf this year as you say was cold for a long period (down to -18 for around 6wks) and then cold winds. The young ones planted about 5-10 yrs ago are doing much better.

  9. Hodge. Good to see you back around.
  10. Never got on with them personally, Ok for cutting in ditches etc. Flexible shaft may not like a blade. Prob need a bit more power.
  11. Sorry couldn't remember, looking good.
  12. What about the rabbit run in the back garden? IIRC
  13. Agree entirely with you up to 5" trunks blade OK after that easier with chainsaw. You can do larger with a clearing saw its just a faff, and you often have a holding peg in the middle.
