    Echo 2511 repair

    Ok Araldite was useless for this repair. I used this cheap stuff I found on Ebay. I filled the tank and turned the saw over onto its side and left it overnight and not a dribble was lost. It's a liquid plastic that is thin enough to run into hairline cracks, then you cure it in seconds using the supplied UV light. Amazing stuff. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/5-Second-Fix-Liquid-Plastic-Welding-Kit-Fix-Repair-and-Seal-Anything-UK-FAST/253129883875?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

    Great truck for domestic arb..

    i wood've thought the 7 ton chassis wasn't much different to the 3.5 & 5.5 tonner so it's a shame they don't offer it in 4X4 guise. If ya need or want to stay legal with a 4X4 variant then there is not much leeway with a 3.5 tonner. Great looking vehicles and good for domestic arb but i'd struggle with their size as it's toight enuf in the narrow Devon lanes with an old MK6 Transit double cab as it is! I'd be better off with a Cabstar or Grafter sometimes but i hate tiny cabs.

    Echo 2511 repair

    Hi, I damaged the fuel filler 'neck' (where the filler cap screws into) and it now has a hairline crack which allows fuel to escape. Is there any sealer or glue i can use to seal it up? @spudulike

    Those 2 stroke oils.....

    mate of mine does fire wood and buys fully synth 2T motorcycle racing oil in 5L containers and it works out very cheap, uses it in his off road bikes and chainsaws. I splash out on Redline 2T oil which works out at about £24 per litre and mix it with regular pump petrol!

    Devon - first impressions

    They talk funny down this way Big J huh! 'They' will be saying 'that Scottish fella talks funny'! With the rural folk you will get used to them referring to You as 'He' or 'Him' and your lady as 'She' or 'Hers'. I hafta say i love living down here as i spent many years in London afore decamping to the south west. Ps. yer young daughters will be referred to as 'maids'.

    Greenmech Quadchip

    Thanks Jase, I have checked to manual and it states 150NM on the bolts so would 200NM be a bit too much? It makes no mention with regards to replacing bolts or nuts so i'll do a visual inspection and if they look fine i'll reuse them. Thanks for replying.

    churchyard Yew Clumps

    Hi all, I have been asked to top these Irish Yew clumps as they are gone a bit wayward and getting close to over head power lines. They haven't been touched for a few years and look a bit untidy. They need to be bound up with round fencing wire in order to help them retain their shape and to pull their width in a few inches as one in particular is protruding out onto a footpath and gateway, it'll also make it easier for me to 'top' them evenly. I was going to use ratchet straps to initially pull each clump into shape then use galvanised wire and simply wrap the wire back on itself to secure it in position. Should i use fencing gripples, What say ye?
