  1. Howdy, has anyone tried the petzl vizir for the vertex vent helmets ? I'm bored of getting stuff in my eyes🙈 smoked or clear version? Also is the protector worth it ? Not that I can find one. Cheers 🍻

    Choosing a saw...

    500i is a beast! Had one for 2 years commercial Forestry, no issues whatsoever (touch wood). I do planting in the winter so probably only about a year and a half of hard work for it. Usually have an 18" on it, pulls a 25" no problem when needed. Also have a 16" but you have to hold on.....tight!
  3. My mistake it's an oregon EXL chain
  4. Anyone noticed much of a difference between oregon LPX and sthil rapid super chains? Same for bars versa cut or rollermatic? (I do use sugihara light when I can get them form rob d). Full chisel on a 500i. Cheers
  5. Is it a bad idea or not? It's free after all from a pub
  6. We plant soft wood in tubex shrub shelters about 2ft tall but a lot wider. And hard wood in 4 to 6 ft tubes depending on what bloody dear species is in the area. Or nets with canes if no deer about
  7. What time of year do you rub cricket bat willows? Cheers
  8. 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.
  9. I would Stubby but I don't have the saws. Trying to decide what to get.
  10. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Bugger me I ment this year/ now whoops.😆
  14. Looking for rough prices for saw logs and chip roadside. In the Midlands. Cheers
