    makita 7900

    Yes all the dolmars seem to go tighter, oil and petrol caps which is better than the other way I suppose the new caps you only have too put The screwdriver end of your scrench along the slot if it goes tight on you the brake parts haven’t had much call for them on the saws over 65cc all the sneddings saws under this size I’ve supplied several springs and a few bands the linkage wears on some coils will die on the older models but a flywheel and coil from the newer generation will fit i usualy run the 79cc saws on 24” very nice balance but they will ru; much bigger bars with ease ,matched with a good full chisel skip theyll oil them well too

    Yes the newer model caps are much better with Dolmar / makita fuel and oil caps you don’t need to have them over tight

    Rabaud F80 splitter

    That looks a helluva machine Tom for what it’s worth I’ve got a vertical tractor mounted Rabaud splitter had it for 20 years it’s been faultless built so strong it’ll split everything but not In the same league as this big boy i wonder if you could put rows of smaller logs in there like 30 or 40 at a time or have you got a large supply of oversized material and have a loader and large bucket on the end too catch the logs

    50 cc saw

    Yes there’s two offerings from Dolmar / makita the Dolmar ps-5105 and makita EA5000 both are identical pricing the Dolmar is more expensive at the moment bar and chain are from 13” up to 20” 3/8 or .325
  7. Hi there, 

    Steve bulman said you may have info on dolly/makita saws.

    I run a 550 for small stuff but it' is getting tired . So looking for the 50cc range as it's nice and light. 

    I use a 372 for the bigger stuff.

    Ordering from America

    As @outinthewood says it’s much more customer friendly if everything is straight forward and easy for them it should sail through I’ve had more trouble with exporting items especially through California used saws and parts are getting harder too send and sometimes axes can get stuck in customs If your prepared too pay the import duties then most times your still quids in
  10. good on you big j for taking that lead into another branch of the forestry sector it could well be a winner with all the rainfall and limited extracting months and many people will tell you down here when alot of these woodlands where planted , the tracks in werent very wide and your machine would benefit alot of small woodland owners , and it will be good too meet you next summer
