  1. Yew hedge advice

    I have a customer wanting me to work on their mature yew hedges, reducing height by 1/3 and reducing one side by approx 1/3. Having read on RHS and one or 2 other sites about best time of year to do this I'm left confused. Should I be reducing yew hedge in mid-winter, early spring or late spring (all answers I've read on the web)? Obviously, keen to do this before nesting birds are a problem. Don't want to mess up customers hedges either. Any advice very welcome

    That's great. Thanks. Both options are close enough. If you can send me contact details I'll try speaking with them. Cheers
  5. Spark plug overtightened Husqvarna 450e

    Thanks for all your replies. Very pleased to hear that it doesn't need new pot or that the saw is a write-off. I'm near Wetherby/York. Anyone know someone good around here to do this work? Otherwise, will send to Spud who has messaged me with quote and more info. Cheers Sam
  6. Hi Needing to get a chip box for my tipper. Looking for recommendations for companies local to me (Wetherby/York/Leeds area) who can make me one and fit it. Want something professional and durable. Any suggestions? Cheers Sam
  7. My 450e saw has problem with the spark plug vibrating loose during use. It really won't stay in place for more than a few seconds of cutting. I've discovered that the thread in the pot is damaged, I guess from over tightening or cross threading the spark plug. Taken it to my local Husky dealer who advises me it's an uneconomic repair. He says only solution he can recommend is a new pot and he showed me the price of a Husky replacement and said it wasn't worth spending the money. Do others agree? Any other advice? Thanks
  8. Entec roller problem

    Thanks for answers. I'll update thread when I've solved it. Got some other ideas to try from another Entec thread in maintenance forum as well. Job for Monday morning
  9. Entec roller problem

    I have a problem with my entec petrol chipper with hydraulic rollers. The bottom roller stopped working yesterday. In reverse it turns, but going forward it doesn't and therefore won't pull in branches. It was a wet and long day before the chipper developed the problem. Electrical problem perhaps? Any ideas how I can diagnose the problem and solve it?
  10. entec 1999 two speed switch?

    I'd really like to know answer to this too. I have another question about my Entec. Today, the bottom roller stopped working. In reverse it works, but going forward it doesn't. It was a very wet day and the chipper had been busy and working well until end of day problem started. Electrical problem perhaps? Any ideas how I can diagnose the problem and solve it?
  11. iPhone 6/6s/7 plus size

    Thanks for all your replies. I tried a 7 plus in a shop today and it seemed too big to comfortably hold and type with 1 hand. With the case on, my guess it really would be 2 hands needed for typing easily
  12. iPhone 6/6s/7 plus size

    Anyone use the plus size iPhone in a bulky case like a lifeproof? Time for a new phone. I like the idea of the big screen but wonder whether the size of it in the hand and in the pocket will be an issue. What's your experiences?
  13. Will have chip and logs coming from a job in Headingley, Leeds. Should be one 3.5t truck load of conifer chip and logs. Anyone interested or know a local tip site? Thanks
  14. Chip site, Rotherham area

  15. Chip site, Rotherham area

    I have chip from a job in Wickersley, Rotherham, S66 area. I know of green waste site nearby, but it is pay to tip. Anyone want some chip in this area or know of a free to tip site? Logs going too. Sycamore and larch. Thanks. Sam
