  1. Echo 501, good ground saw
  2. My brother in law and his partner have two. He uses it more as a car than a pickup, she uses it for all the jobs at the stables plus towing the horse trailer. Neither of them look after their cars and with exception to routine maintenance and wear and tear items haven’t had any problems.
  3. Has anyone on here had a go with the ropes being offered by Gleistein. Never heard of them before and a new 35m 12mm rope is around £90 which is almost half the price of all the other ropes on the market.
  4. I had this done recently. Bought a 35k mile Mk7 transit and had the body built. Tool locker is raised off the bed by 300mm as I do a lot of fencing so means I can fit a 10ft post underneath the tool locker.
  5. I’m after a new ground helmet. Currently have a husky technical helmet and I just don’t get on with it. Have a Protos helmet when climbing which fits like a glove but don’t know what the ear muffs are like for chipping? Does anyone have anything good or bad to say about the current ground helmets for sale? cheers all
  6. Had 2+1 on my Mk6 transit, when it was full of chip would sit 3-4” lower. Didnt seem to raise the rear body height to much and ride was pretty good still. Have got 3+1 on my Mk7, doesn’t seem to sit any lower with weight in it. Rear body height is quite a bit higher than the 2’s and it is a lot bumpier while driving.

  9. How are you getting on with the 520iht4?
  10. Another vote for Zarges. I’ve got the same as above and good for most things
  11. I bought a 150p new a few years ago and when it was working it was a fantastic machine. Didn’t have any problems chipping. But in the just over 2 years I had it it had to go back to the dealer 4 times and was down for 4-5 months in total repair times. Ended up fixing it, selling it and taking the financial hit and going to Timberwolf. **Just wanted to add the down time wasn’t entirely down to Greenmech, B&S had a large part to play in it.**
  12. I’ve got a zillion. Bought as when I started climbing got a zigzag so the zillion made sense. Would highly recommend it. Only thing I’ve done is fitted a petzl swivel as I found it bound up on my harness. I’ve also got an Art positioner 2 on my steel core but just don’t get on with it as well.
  13. Looking into getting a bigger grinder to run along side or replace my FSI B22. Was wondering if anyone has anything good or bad to say about the SG40 and particularly the B28? cheers all
  14. Only time i notice the machine has less power is if your grinding fairly deep and end up with a lot of grinding around the wheel if slows the wheel. Just means you stop for 30 seconds and move the grindings and carry on. Would highly recommend the FSI.
  15. I had a predator 450 and now have an FSI B22. The difference is night and day, and your body will thank you for it.
