  1. Thanks for your top quality post! 👏 roughly how much would bearings cost to replace on the cutting disc ?
  2. I’m in the market for buying a used chipper, but It’ll be my first tow behind machine and with only a low budget I’ll need to know what’s the main things to look for when buying an older machine. What are the expensive things to go and the signs things to look out for? Be chipper specific please! I’m alright with engine maintenance. cheers!!

  4. Groundsman required for for small business based east Leeds. One off job to begin with but may lead to regular work. Must have appropriate tickets, PPE and own transport. Please PM me with experience level and day rate. Cheers, Joe
  5. Thanks nepia, for some reason I presumed genuine Jo Beau blades where going to be mega money, but actually ended up being what I expected from aftermarket prices. Global had them in stock and with me in just a couple of days. Cheers!
  6. Anyone know where I can get hold of some spare blades for Jo Beau M250? The usual places don’t seem stock them as they are a different size to the M300 Cheers
  7. I did try that but it seemed too floppy, I could do with a small shackle to attach the tether in line with the body of the zig zag.
  8. Anyone know of any reason not to use the single tether rope wrench on the newest non swivel version of the petal zig zag? I have just bought one and I’m in the process of trialling it. I know there’s the chicane but I already own a RW. Only thing I can think of is with the single tether it doesn’t distribute the weight evenly and may cause more pressure on one side of the Zz. The rope wrench does seem to pull to one side when weighted (see pic). Other than that it seems to work beautifully ?? cheers

  9. I have in the past, when I was a newbie keen to learn and to gain experience.
  10. 150 is climber money. If training is being provided then they are obviously unskilled. £60 - £110 per day
  11. Do the bars for the echo 2511 also fit the 360tes? And if so do you also sell the 1/4 sprocket for the 360?
