  1. It is true that some types of glue can damage helmets just the same as it can with any type of crash helmet

    Old manuals

    Received today. Bloke at work is well happy with it. Cheers again 👍
  4. It's good to give old parts back as far to many don't believe what's been replaced and why. Just wish people would take them with them. Certainly the plastic/rubber components.
  5. Yes it can. As said theres two types. One being pre mixed 2t fuel at 50:1 and the 4t version that just replaces unleaded

    Shoulder Injuries

    My shoulders and knees are both knackered originally from mountain biking only to be made worse from tree work. My shoulders have come out more times than I can remember and can probably say the same for my knee. Feeling far better after retiring from tree work at the grand old age of 37. 2 years on and there's still pain, but nowhere near as much. Some of my mates who used to be professional riders put me on to a sports therapist that they use in the local town, helps alot
  12. Where you based, is there a chainsaw shop near you? They should be able to make one for you. If not message me on here and I'll make one up and post out on Monday when back at work 👍
  13. When I last checked delivery was still TBC on their monthly back order list.
  14. Have a look at the HTA 135, it uses the 12" 3/8 1.1mm chain as the old petrol saws did. From my limited use, it seems a good machine the motor is at the bottom as well not having a cable running up the shaft. A dam sight more heavy duty than the HTA 86 and still feels lighter than a petrol machine, probably works out the same weight but less vibration.
