    2017 Stihl MS150T Well used but still in good working order. Only problem is off switch has stopped working so requires choking to turn off. Should think it's an easy fix for some one inclined to do it. Comes with sharp chain and 2 brand new spare chains 10''. £300 Cash on collection preferred will post at extra cost Thanks

  3. Literally made me laugh out loud
  4. It doesn't drop below 12v after running all day but after a couple weeks of starts it starts to drop. Noticed today the hour clock isn't functioning correctly as it reads 888.8 rather than the 400 odd hours it's actually done.
  5. Thanks for that maybe I need to investigate further or what I'll probably end up doing is taking to someone who knows what they're looking for. Thanks again
  6. Hi there, I have a 2016 Timberwolf 125 which only has 420 hours on it but for the last few months the battery has been losing charge. I've been recharging the battery every few weeks but finally got round to testing it. The battery has a charge of 12.8v and doesn't go up to 14 or more when running so i checked the alternator and that was the same. Would that mean the alternator is not working? Has anyone had this problem before and if so any remedy other than buying a new alternator as it's nearly £200 and seems far too new to have this problem really. Any help appreciated. Thanks Duncan
  7. Any idea what this is? Sorry for the poor pictures. Its on an Ash tree which has quite a lot of decay and bark damage. And appears to only be growing in the damaged areas of the tree.
  8. would add put the straw on a couple sheets of ply as well.
  9. 2nd for the conventional straw bales. I've used 2 together in a 2 dumpy bags and ratchet strapped them together to stop them splitting and spilling out. Used chip in a bag too but found it needs to be adjusted after every log and not as confident it absorbs as well as the straw.
  10. I used 18mm marine ply about £70 a sheet lasts longer and capped the edges with some aluminium channel to protect the ply from coming apart 1inch by 1inch by 1/8inch thick leaves a gap that slots nicely over 18mm ply. Got it from aluminium warehouse at about £50 which if it helps make the boards last another year is good and can be used again on the next set of boards I put on when these are trashed.
  11. Hi all, Hiring a chipper from a local tree surgeon and I need to insure it for the week. Rang my insurance who I have PLI and tools insured with but they said they wouldn't insure a machine I don't own unless it was a hired machine from a registered hire company. Anyone insured something like this before and if so how? Any help much appreciated. Thanks Duncan
  12. After a recent break in I'm wanting to step up the security on my container. Can anyone recommend an alarm system that texts you when it goes off? Or point me in the direction of a thread where this has been discussed as I'm sure it has before!
  13. The p500 doesn't have spikes on the back it has 4 rubber pads. I've had it for a few years now and well happy with it.
  14. I used to work for someone who had a heavy duty chain welded to the draw bar on the chipper and then a padlock on the other end which was obviously locked to the van on the tow bar. It was just the right length long enough so it could be locked on full time whilst towing and had enough slack for turning and reversing it at tight angles.
