    Chainsaw Use In Arboriculture

    No st the moment but that may well change within 5 to ten years. i think you need more options than just yes or no

    Jensen A528 chipper

    Sounds more like rollers not getting enough hydraulic pressure , maybe valve controlling forward/reverse not functioning properly .

    Mk6 Transit indicator

    Re: indicators. mine have given bother a few times. had to replace hazard switch once or twice. last time they acted up with one side coming on by itself, turned out to be a diode. Took a lot of trial and error to find. Q

    Mini stump grinders.

    I bought a used Camon badged version of Rayco RG 13 about fourteen years ago .it has done every sort of stump for me . it cost around €1500 at the time and is probably still worth €1000. Well worth buying something built to last

    Husky 266se

    When I started cutting in the forests in 1987 the 266XP was the saw the main price work cutters used. Most lads would start off with a Husky 61 The forestry men (state forestry before it became Coillte Teoranta) used mostly 266SE or some had 162SE. i don’t know what the difference was between the SE and XP, I never seen an SE on display in any of the saw dealers of the time, just XP. would still be a good saw for ringing firewood
