  1. I have this harness and the attachment points your referring to are near impossible to access with a karabiner, especially if you’re gonna be using the main side D’s. I had never even seen them as an attachment option until you posted this question. So if you’re thinking of purchasing this harness on the idea of using these attachment points regularly I wouldn’t. The harness itself I really like.
  2. Please post or pm more info. What size logs you have? Amount? How do you want it cut? Boards? Beams? Etc etc, thanks
  3. Poor colour coordination with the ear defenders, blue clashes awful with orange
  4. Out of curiosity, what actually causes that ripple?
  5. The pulley saver would be different to your current fixed ring set up.I use a ART rope guide which is brilliant and would be worth considering also. I've not tried the multi saver but looking at it I would imagine it would feel similar to your treehog to climb on but someone else might have other opinions.
  6. That's what I'm leaning towards tbh just wondering if people have a preference on cut speed alone? Can't imagine it being much of a difference on a 15" bar anyway?
  7. Anyone running both models?Is there a noticeable difference in cutting speed between the 3/8 and 325? looking at running either a 560 or 562 on a 15" bar 90% of the time but the larger mount would be useful the odd occasion for larger stuff, I've also already got bars and chains to fit larger mount.

    Ticking Hilux!

    Check one of the injectors haven't come loose, injector seals, d4d engine I've seen the bolts undo under the rocker cover. You might see the plug on top the injector twitching when engine running if really loose.
  9. 390 395 and 3120 I've heard, but as has already been said, would appear there's gonna be no replacement models for some time. Just ordered a 3120 for milling and was told stocks are running low already.
  10. I'll be following this with interest, I'm near Cullompton myself and can think of a few jobs where this kind of machine would be very useful. If you need any help with anything or finding your way around drop me message 👍🏻
  11. I'm guessing your doing work for petrol stations,fore-courts refineries etc, i helped on a job few years ago we just wore flame retardant coveralls on top of chainsaw trousers, boots are the difficult bit, we couldn't find anti static chainsaw boots, had to use non-chainsaw boots and wrote it up in risk assessment, was only for one off job though. Not sure on your options if it's going to be regular work.
  12. As Steve has said really,sounds fuel related,these machines always seam to get crap in the fuel tanks,I'd look there first take the pipe off the tank and check the flow. It's also worth inspecting the fuel lines to the engine, after a while they soften up and can collapse and get pinched between other hoses. Then check lift pump gauze and that it's working correctly then filter.
  13. Those lines went right over my head.... (Tumble weed)
  14. New parts are easily available,but not cheap. There's not much second hand stuff about for them like the jcb's,matbro's manitous etc.
  15. Been driving and working on them for about 15 years,brilliant machines.headstock pins and bushes, rear axle pivot bushs and main lift ram lower pin bushs are prone to problems if not greased regularly. Very well built machines really,shame they stopped making them.
