  1. Woodchip near Crystal Palace

    I'm going to have one or two Transit loads of very clean wood chip to dispose of. I don't mind paying a reasonable fee so if anyone can help it would be much appreciated. Call or message 07834 414271 or PM me Thanks Al

  4. The Sidewinder way.

    Hi Al. I've been using one for 4 or 5 years (cos I'm ace) and wouldn't want to be without it. Cheers Al. [emoji12] Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk

  7. Christian Cain

    Well spotted Mark. I guess he's struggling for work but he'll possibly struggle to get extra work with other firms as his truck is sign written. Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk
  8. Echo CS2511TES released soon.

    I've had the Stihl bar and chain and that transformed the saw. Then I got the Sugihara bar & chain from Rob D which is at least as good, possibly better than the Stihl. (So long as you sharpen it before use, oddly). One of my staff has a 150 and every one of us prefer the Echo because it's lighter, cuts faster, better ergonomics & better quality.

  9. Echo CS2511TES released soon.

    Perfect. It needed a retune after a few weeks so I did that myself. Then it worked like a turd so the dealer did it properly. Lol! Since then it's been perfect. Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk
  10. Avant questions

    No nothing at all hit me. When lifting the mulcher to lower it onto the brambles I just angled it so that it was facing away more. Simple. Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk
  11. Avant questions

    I can only answer one if your questions as I'm not an Avant owner but have used them many times with pallet forks for moving logs. Although I recently used one with a flail mower. We cut down hundreds of Blackthorn trees with 4" thick trunks and it was expectedly slow to make progress when there were multiple trunks under the deck but otherwise it was extremely effective. Obviously not as good as an Ahwi with 600hp....... but I was pleasantly surprised. On the areas of dense bramble and a trillion 2" thick saplings it was superb. Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk
  12. Council Wastage!

    This is what happens when half-wit lawn mower pushers get sent out to plant trees that are paid for by tax payers (which includes themselves!) Genius. [emoji107]🏼[emoji107]🏼[emoji90][emoji90] Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk

    Sorry Dave, I was referring to the general cost of everything in our society. But if a generalisation but costs/pace/stress/consequences are generally higher than they were in 'the good old days'. Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk
