  1. First day off from the shop today. We've now closed to public coming in, but telephone orders etc. Can either be delivered or picked up from outside the shop. I've only been at home because I'm just shop front
  2. I've started working at a main dealer for both sthil and husqvarna. The 550 definitely seems to sell better than the 261, even though I try my hardest to sell it
  3. They might of all fledged by time everyone can get back to it
  4. Worked today (Chainsaw shop) 90% of customers were domestic users. All leaning on the counter enjoying there day off. Had to keep asking them to stand back, some more than once even though there's a big sign telling them to. We only opened for our larger customers ( council/utilities etc) but yet they kept coming. Who knew chainsaws, hedge trimmers were essential goods!
  5. Your not the only one
  6. This is close to me 'Lorry load' of flytipping spotted at layby in Burnley WWW.LANCASHIRETELEGRAPH.CO.UK FLY-TIPPERS have dumped ‘lorry loads of bin bags’ at a lay-by in Burnley.

    She used to make chains herself so she knows their fine
  10. If you can get Echo. The shop I work at became a dealer back end of last year and their selling well. As for climbing kit, just do some research on what the customer needs. No point doing the ticket if your not going to use it. One of the blokes at work knows just about as much as me about the kit, but has never climbed and I've climbed for 20 years. Knowledge can overcome the experience in some of the kit, especially with new kit coming on the market as it does. If you were thinking of tickets to have some sort of experience you'd have to chipper, climbing, rigging etc.

    Washing machine has been making some noise over the last few days, and couldn't work out what it was. Anyway found the culprit
  12. Congratulations! Little Loris has just been discharged from NICU
  13. Cheers Paul. Chainsaws are in her blood. Her granddad owns the local dealers. I'll definitely be teaching her about trees as early as possible. Just as I did with Rowan
  14. Can you not get made from the reel at a dealer? I'm sure their Sugihara bars re-badged
  15. Good good. Hope that sorts it. I've managed to go for a pint now, as I can only stay 9 till 9
