  2. Cheers, i have tried the sweatband but found it fiddly fitting under a helmet
  3. Does anyone know if there are uv visors for helmets on the market?? or even better where to get uv film to make a custom one as fed up of steaming up sunglasses and sweat on lenses. Cheers
  4. there will be some parcels coming up in next few months if thats any use to you and also some 50 foot butts
  5. I saw a brand new one of these chains the other day on closer inspection the angles were different on some teeth and cutter length varied
  6. What sort of size are you looking at?? as theres oaks coming out soon on a job once ground hardens up
  7. if you want reliability and peace of mind i wouldnt go for a husqvarna 550/560 as they are hit and miss with whoever has them, Personally id got for a dolmar/ makita or echo option.
  8. 2m grid so you can get between them with topper whilst they are growing
  9. Anyone know where to get a new cylinder and pot for 560?
  10. it must be the reason why so many sieze or just wear out as im sure the exhaust gases run out the saw in a u shape from the exhaust manifold which causes the saw to heat up and the plate between the cylinder and exhaust
  11. Ive had the exact same issues with my 560 its been in twice now for new carb pot and piston under warranty and only lasted around a month each time. I know my saw is high hours as its used pretty much 5 days a week flat out felling but just think they get far too hot in general dont know if its due to the way the exhaust gases run through the muffler which cause this or something else. I will be sending it back again!!
  12. Based in kent but work all over south east
