  1. Hi Ian, What volume / weight are you looking to process? Bert
  2. Hi Rob, Apologies for the delay in responding. I wouldn't say the design of the controls is poor, it's just they don't make the machine 'feel' as solid as you would like. But this doesn't detract from the fact that it does work well. To get round this, I have put a single lever in rather than using two. It does definitely loosen the fixings, but you can engineer for that not to happen. I would definitely recommend it, but just make sure you try it first as my opinion may differ from yours. Regards, Ali
  3. Hi there, These are Chinese splitters, that's not a negative though. Not had a single major problem with mine for 5 years. I've put about 200-300 ton through mine. Compared with a friend's splitter, I think it's probably rated about 12-15ton. Positives: Sips fuel Low maintenance Mine cost £500 Splits anything I throw at it. Negatives: Unless these guys have spares, you'll have to find someone in China (have a look at Alibaba). I had to build mine from the beam upwards, so you'll need a bit of knowledge to put it together if it doesn't get delivered pre-assembled. The two handles have to be pulled simultaneously, if not the engine will cut. Some parts loosen over time and will need to be tightened and monitored. Hydraulic pipes are a bit too long and can drag around the floor. The guide bars on the beam can get caught by the wood and distort. Moving the beam from horizontal to vertical can take quite a bit of effort as there is a single rod that keep the beam in place. There is no length adjustment on the ram, so you have to manually control every stroke. There is no auto recoil on the ram either. A friend has said the engine isn't powerful enough for the ram which is why the stroke speed is quite slow. That's all I can think of for now. Regards Bert

  10. Hi Jon, All my wood is free arb waste. I am looking at a log boiler to load once a day at peak during the winter when I renovate the house to 7500sqft. Forgive me, tubs of woodchip/pellets or what? Bert
  11. Hi ArthurBottlesworth, Didn't bother with the thermostat. I am quite happy going with the flow. Our living room where the stove is located is 8mx8m. I can get it to 28c full chat. The rest of the house is poorly insulated / crittle glazed so it's largely reliant on the outside temparture. So if it's 0c outside then +5c - 10c without the rads on, +14c - 16c with rads on room dependant. Bert
  12. Hi ArthurBottlesworth, Originally had the Herald 14, loved it. Put this in - love it. We get some smoke into the room when refilling - but I'm sure that's down to the draw from the flue not quite working correctly rather than being an issue with the stove itself. We get 70c water for the bath from a cold tank in about 30 minutes when running 200c flue temperature. We get an easy overnight burn with the damper keeping the house about 16/17c, 5 bed, 3600sqft. I burn 2/3 softwood - 1/3 hardwood. Flue swept once a year. I bought this 2nd hand as our fitter had the ability to rectify any problems - there were no problems with it. Any other questions, let me know. Bert
  13. Hunter Herald 80b. 23 radiators plus DHW. Running 24 hours a day since October. Averaging 1.3cube a week.
