  1. Good luck I would be interested to see how you get on!
  2. I would not want to put this through a chipper
  3. Which end of the National Forest are you. I have a small wood in Yoxall
  4. I had an HW80 at 21.6 ft/lb. I gave up with it as the spring recoil made it impossible to keep the scope still. The full length scope mount with a roll pin recessed into the barrel sheared the roll pin with less than 50 shots!
  5. I have had some success by threading some shoots of hazel through the holes in a plastic plant pot and filling with soil. A year later I cut off below the pots. Good roots!
  6. I use a Titan 7 tonne vertical splitter. So long as you know where to put the wedge it copes with most stuff
  7. I got some ice on the swelling straight away. A lump was coming up quickly but the ice brought it back down again. Cut in my forehead is taped up and nothing worse. Didn't stop me getting a days work in the garden
  8. Actually it was a bit of dry leylandii and a 4way wedge
  9. I have been splitting logs for years and know where to put the wedge. never had the front of a log fly off like this one did An inch lower and it might have been a different story. My eyes would have been at risk.
  10. Splitting logs today with 7ton vertical splitter when the front of the log (nearest to me) popped off like an explosion and caught me full in the face. Nose and forehead wacked and forehead split and bleeding. Looks worse than it feels now thank goodness. No more log splitting until I get full face visor. )
  11. Is this your own hedge or one you look after for a customer?
  12. No it seems it is me that was given duff info sorry
  13. A number for you all to get to know is 112. If you have no signal it will search all other networks till it finds a signal and contacts the emergency services
  14. I am disabled and use a wheelchair. There is so much new tech coming on stream that will be useful to me as I get older that will need a smart phone so I thought I better start will I am not too far out of touch
  15. I have been using a Samsung C3350 for the last few years. Dropped it in puddles, Hit it with logs and hammers etc. Still works but have reluctantly moved up to a smart phone. I know I am going to have to be much more carful with my phone in future.
