  1. What time of year do you rub cricket bat willows? Cheers
  2. I use a husky ultra vision visor on my vertex vent fits fine for me it's the helmet that's too big I need a sweatband to keep it in place.
  3. I would Stubby but I don't have the saws. Trying to decide what to get.
  4. Hi, does anybody know what the actual cutting length is on a ms261 14" and 16" Also a 550xp on a 15"? I'm still torn between what saw and length to go for. Thanks

    Oil setting

    What do you guys recommend on the oil adjustment for an 18inch bar on a 500i? I'm getting two tanks of fuel to one fill of oil at the moment on near minimum setting.
  6. Oregon bars and chains unless Rob d has sugi light bars in. Sthill and husky bars and chain I noticed no difference for added cost. Rototech maybe OK for surgery or domestic user but not in the woods. Sthil 500i 18inch to 24 inch sometimes use a 16 inch but it does try to kill you. Anything else up to 60cc on a 15 inch bar. Full chisel of course... this is forestry not floristry 😀. If a homeowner would go with semi chisel however.
  7. Bugger me I ment this year/ now whoops.😆
  8. Looking for rough prices for saw logs and chip roadside. In the Midlands. Cheers
