  1. Are they coming with the sugihara bar as well now then? Not a massive fan of that chain tbh, have snapped one and they are dull when brand new
  2. Don't forget to get s stihl 500i off them as doing an offer for a free one if order a chipper this month!
  3. Have you tried the st6p? I'm curious if there's much difference
  4. I've got the st6p. Very good machine, not convinced in the slightest about this 24hp that forst and GM are using now tbh. 37hp petrol has to be a better option, and cheaper to buy
  5. What's the price of the 18hp one thesedays then as was only a few hundred more than that?
  6. The wording makes it sound like you need to give the saw an oil change. Whoever made that has zero idea how a saw works
  7. Had to chuckle at their Instagram post recently
  8. That's the one I have, very solid for on site, imagine a cordless grinder would get through it with a bit of time overnight. They come up on eBay quite a bit, got mine for £50
  9. I like that British racing green colour
  10. That's obviously worth the switch. Don't know if it's the same petrol engine though as I went from 35hp diesel Kubota to 37hp petrol and haven't noticed extra fuel use. Plus I use pump fuel as nowhere to store red so the petrol is cheaper, plus the chipper is £2k cheaper than the diesel so makes sense
  11. Are diesels on big machines really that much better at hours per gallon? My chipper is no worse than a diesel
  12. stump grinder engines go on one pot cos of the angle they work at. I replaced an engine on my rayco last year (a 1997 one.. original engine) last year and cost about £1200 for a brand new engine, not a big deal really! dont forget petrol engines in cars can do 200000 miles no prob! half hour chipping a day is nothing
  13. I looked into reviews of the engine before getting a petrol chipper and the 37hp enging they using has been clocking up 2000 hrs + on lawn tractors etc in america with no issues. Just as good as a diesel imho
