  3. FR Jones Chainsaw Sale: Stihl MS 261 vs Husq 550XP

    Can't fault this stihl so far. Great on a 16 inch bar. I don't have an allegiance to a specific brand. I get through a saw every 12/18 months. Sent from my F5321 using Arbtalk mobile app
  4. FR Jones Chainsaw Sale: Stihl MS 261 vs Husq 550XP

    I had a 550 on a recommendation. Always had 346 and 357's and an awful stihl 362 paper weight. 550 lasted for 6 months after moderate use, had to replaced the av springs, baffles broke in the exhaust so replaced that, then the crank gave up. Shopped it in for a 261. Just as light, little slower revving, lovely to use, so far no issues. Sent from my F5321 using Arbtalk mobile app
  5. Hand weeding Price with Hook

    Can you do a day of it first? You can find out the sort of area you will cover in a day. Decide what you want to earn per day add a bit on for steep inclines, wet weather, brambles etc. You can workout how many days to cover a hectare then. If it's just bracken, you can cover a fair area on a good day.
  6. Hand weeding Price with Hook

    If you didn't plant the trees and it's your first time there, do it on a day rate and just get it done as quick as possible. Even small conifer planted in rows will be hard to find if you didn't plant it.
  7. how to quote a planting job?

    Also depends on site conditions. Soil conditions, if its been mulched or brash raked etc.
  8. how to quote a planting job?

    Depends on the size of the trees. I can have 1000 in by 1-2pm flat out. That's a speed I'm comfortable at. So 9 man days planting if you go on 1000 a day. If you stay on and plant a few hundred more each day your £££'s in!

    Listened to Serial and hours of Rhod Gilbert!

    A bulldog spade (I use an old rabbiting spade) , good bag, canes sprayed with tree paint and a good selection of podcasts!
  11. Stihl MS362 M-tronic won't start when warm

    Ring the stihl tech department and explain the problems. See what they suggest. I've never had a saw that has cost me so much in lost earnings before!
  12. Stihl MS362 M-tronic won't start when warm

    I was but to be honest a professional saw should work from the get go. My old saws never let me down!
  13. Stihl MS362 M-tronic won't start when warm

    Mine would start first time, but would then constantly cut out when back cutting a tree, or snedding out! It's gone back to Stihl so still waiting for an answer. A mate of mine has one of the first auto tune 362's and he has never had a problem with it.
  14. Sharpening chainsaw on site

    I sit down and sharpen away. Or I stand facing a tree, put the nose of the bar on the tree and the saw handle into my thigh and lean into it with the brake on.
  15. Stihl MS362 M-tronic won't start when warm

    I have mate but I think I'd rather replace av mounts and clutch springs on a 560 than have to have my 362 rebuilt over and over again. 4 of my mates have 560's. Terrible when they first came out, but now they seem ok.
