    Any Jo Beau M500 users out there?

    Thanks very much for that. Very useful. They’re brand new, never used blades. But no idea if anvil gap is correct. Any advice on checking the gap? Thanks
  4. I’m interested in buying a Jo Beau 500 wee chipper. Previously had a CS100 which I was happy with until it was stolen. Got a M500 on hire at moment, but it is a 2005 machine and not performing as I expected it to. Very unimpressed with chipping performance, finding the chute frequently blocking, and a feeble chip throw meaning no good chipping into a vehicle. Performance of this old hire machine is definitely not as good as my old CS100 which happily chipped from trailer over tailboard to front of my 9’ long chip box. I mostly left chip on site, but from time to time I could use the cs100 as a wee road tow chipper. Do any of you use a M500 chipper to chip into a truck? I know there are options available to extend length of chute which should increase throw. Anyone who can share their experience of using this chipper, how it performs, how you have used it when removing chip? Many thanks

    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
  9. <p>Many thanks for your suggestions. I'll give them both a call</p>

    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
  13. 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
  14. 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
