    We are a greenwaste composting site based in Nottinghamshire. We take waste from Rushcliffe Borough Council, Streetwise and we are open to Local Tree Surgeons, Gardeners and Landscapers. we ask that you call first to make sure we are onsite as sometimes we are away from the site, we always aim to open up for people within 30 minutes. Woodchip clean/mixed logs Brash
  3. Thats why i was asking if this has happened to anybody else, but it seems to have turned into a "what chipper do you prefer thread" 😧 I did google the number but nothing came up
  4. Any body else getting phone calls from "Forst" pretty sure they are scam calls, asking what chipper you have for "research" and from a mobile number, got one last year and just this minute got another from mobile number 07769165715. Basically i said not interested and hung up.
  5. Ok, so i've used the Stein Krieger boots and they lasted a good while so i thought i would order some more from FR Jones as i know they will fit and there a decent price, when i got them they were faulty (so i thought) it looked as if a larger pair of soles were glued to the bottom and they stuck out quite bad (and looked bloody ridiculous see photos) so... a bit of a palava sending them back (one member of staff saying they will collect and the next day another member of staff telling me to return them) anyway i returned them as i didn't hear from FR Jones the next day at all, sent a copy of the postage receipt (£15) only for them to say they only cover for £10 returns postage (i'm glad i wasn't sending a saw back !!) anyway, ive now got a mail saying this is the "new style Krieger boot from Stein" and its not a fault so i got a full refund without the poxy tenner now FFS! Sooooooo im out of pocket for £15 and i had to quickly run to my nearest dealer to get some boots as i was desperate...... Has anybody else bought this new style boot, if so i hope your not tripping up all day.

    Ecoplug Max... Fakes ??

    Thanks guys, i don't have to give the ebay seller a mouthful now
  7. Echo 2511... That's all that needs to be said
  8. First time ive convinced a customer to use Ecoplugs (because of the price) and ive just recieved these that i bought on ebay, Ive never seen them this colour, they surely arnt faking them are they? Has anybody else had them this colour?
  9. Just found a "solid" NGK plug in my spares but i put it in and the cap isnt that tight (maybe its one that ive replaced for this reason) ive check the anti vibe springs and there all in order too. oh well, ive taped the cap down for now so it doesn't jump off while in use. Its not my only trimmer so that's a good thing. (i also have the Echo 341es single sided trimmer of a similar design to the Husky) Thanks for the replies guys
  10. I have and it threads that too ?? its very strange.
  11. I've always used NGK plugs on all my tools and never had a problem.
  12. I screw it tight (its usually tight from the box) i didnt know that you could get a plug with a solid top, i thought they were all screw on jobbys. I will look next time i get one thanks.
  13. That's exactly what's happened.. the thing is it keeps happening... I'm wondering why? and has it happened to anybody else on any of their tools.
