  1. Strop/Flip line

    I've not used an ART positioner before so cannot comment, they seem a popular choice though. The rope is 11.5mm Tachyon, just the standard stuff, works well for all lanyard chores.
  2. Strop/Flip line

    6m Tachyon, the supplied stuff is too stiff and I couldn't get on with it. Use this all the time, yeah it's long but it is real versatile. I'm backing the Zillon, with an aftermarket customisation.
  3. Non PPE climbing boots

    Anyone with experience of the Stein Werewolf boots or Scarpa Pro Ascent?
  4. Non PPE climbing boots

    Which are good? Cheers
  5. MS150 won't turn off!

    As title, 150 starts fine and runs fine but won't turn off at the flick of the switch. Once the switch is in the off position, a squeeze of the throttle will cause the engine to rev, and then die. Short circuit terminals inside the handle are good and make good contact but the problem persists. Has anyone else had this issue? I've been hearing it's not unknown but what is the solution? Cheers
  6. Horizontal log splitter

    Log splitter Jansen HS-12L53 I don't know if this sort of thing would fit the bill? I have short listed it for myself and am wondering if you or anyone else as any experience or opion of it. Not meant to be hijacking your post, just adding to the mix.
  7. Eating amillaria

    Seems a waste not to, but is it worth considering?
  8. Excavator driver needed next week

    Forwarded to a mate who might be able to help.
  9. Your favourite silky

    What about Tsurugi? Anyone got an opinion on them for pruning tight stuff? Considering a 400mm, medium tooth. Gomtaro 300 and Zubat 330 are great for pruning and shaping, Sugoi 420 for dead wooding imo.
  10. What if.....carlsberg made chainsaws?

    Mixed with Redbull.....
  11. Spider ID

    It's not a false widow.
  12. Belt size for schliesing mx 220

    They (auto factors) couldn't match the belt so I have till tomorrow. If anyone knows the part number or size/type that would be appreciated. I need the four similar belts that connect the engine to the fly wheel. Would be good to get it fixed by breakfast. Cheers
