    Stihl & grease nipples!

    Yes it is because it gets left in long grass instead of put away in the correct place so the real cost is a spanner nearly every day. [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji12][emoji12][emoji12][emoji12]

    Stihl & grease nipples!

    That’s what I’d do if I had the kit to do it. Or the time. Or the patience. Or the talent[emoji23]

    Neck tether

    And you have at least as much chance of getting hung up whilst descending and a branch goes up the back of you helmet. Buckle won’t open due to the pressure and you can’t ascend because you’re in a tight spot. Let’s face it, every aspect of everything we do creates some risk and presents a hazard [emoji849][emoji12]

    Thanks mate.

    Stihl & grease nipples!

    Thanks Bob Yes it does appear to be an 11mm as I bought a 10, then a 12! [emoji849].

    Neck tether

    The magnets are in the wrong place to satisfy the H&S freaks.

    Stihl & grease nipples!

    Like many on here, I have a Stihl long reach hedge trimmer. The gearbox in the head must be greased regularly which means getting the tool to undo the stupid plug bolt then press my grease gun into the hole to administer the grease. This process is extremely irritating and would be so much easier if there was a grease nipple! I have ordered several different sizes of grease nipples online and none of them fit. Has anyone had success retrofitting theirs and if so, where did you find the nipples? I don't have this problem with any of my Echo hedge trimmers because they are a far superior tool in every single way. Even when something does break, which is never, Echo are excellent at dealing with warranties. Thanks.

    That’s a big one, innit.

    ‘twas was on an Oak, until the groundie stepped on it and it broke off [emoji849].

    Hi Jack. I’m in Horley, Surrey. Possibly too far for you but it depends exactly where you are.

    Anti vibration gloves

    I’ve found some gloves at Kidmans ‭01892 530771‬ which are excellent. I can’t remember the brand but it’s the only one they sell. Very good gel coverage.

    Groundie & Climber vacancies SE

    We carry out primarily domestic tree work. Our commercial client portfolio includes only the companies that I like to work for because the work is nice i.e: No high speed tree bashing. Most of our work is in the Reigate area and it's very rare to travel more than 20 minutes. Salary will be dictated by your abilities, not age or qualifications although relevant certification is preferred. You must have plenty of initiative, be adaptable and have the desire to do well and improve yourself. There is plenty of scope to advance within the company, if you want it. Please call me on 07834 414271 or oldmilltreecare@aol.com

    Sena Headset Spares

    Apparently there are two mounting units available. The expensive option is the one you can get from the Arb shops. The cheaper one that is virtually the same is probably available from everywhere else.

    Bandit chipper

    That looks a lot like a Bandit 7”(?) that I used to work with many years ago. Absolutely bomb proof. It had a zillion hours on the clock and the only maintenance it ever needed was to be towed past a grease gun!

    General shortage?

    Amazingly I am still looking for a staff member, groundie/climber, doesn’t matter. I’m just amazed at the lack interest and lack of intelligence. One applicant wanted the job, so long as I picked him up and took him home to mummy because he lived one hour away! [emoji23][emoji23]
