  1. My mate works for fls and they use them, he says it's a great machine and better than the logic flail they used to use for cutting overgrown paths. Never actually used one myself tho.
  2. Do you get your torque wrench calibrated? Do you put it back to zero after use? If you dont it could be miles off as it stretches the spring over time (or so I was told anyway). I bought a new torque wrench after I found this out.
  3. Can anyone tell me what breather goes on top of the hydraulic tank on a mk 1 safetrack 1928? Part number would be handy ? There is not much left of the original ๐Ÿ™ˆ
  4. Aye that's smart looking, is it just made with alloy box section and sheet welded together? I'd like to try alloy welding and make similar.
  5. Guy I share my yard with uses a transit pickup with hiab and tows a 12x6 ifor. He gets a few bags moved in one go with that set up.
  6. Clean the blood off it and I will buy it off you ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
  7. You nearly had to change your arbtalk name to hanz-off! You prob have been over tightening the bar nut but I agree it isn't a great design.

    Ebay is full of this crap! And crap made in China.
  9. Its night an day in chipping performance between the 150 and 230, I'd definitely be going for a 230. They can deal with limbs with forks and multiple branches much better and with way less snedding involved.
  10. I'm surprised at that htb, must be some trees about then ๐Ÿ˜. Maybe I'm thinking of shetland?
  11. Seen a tracked bandit for sale on orkney, seller said he would ship the chipper to aberdeen port after payment! There ain't no trees on orkney, and I'm pretty sure there ain't no chippers either ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
  12. I use a husky 550. Never bother with anything smaller.
  13. That's a decent speed right enough ๐Ÿ‘. Were you blasting old paint off the door?
  14. I gave my mate a ton of grit to use with one of these kits, he said it was really slow and used loads of the grit to do one small panel. Couldn't reuse the grit again either. Did you find it quite slow Bob?
