    I have done L1 twice now. You dont need to do any prep for the course, just go there ready to learn and they will show you every thing you need to pass test on last day.

    560 oil tank leak

    My 560 has been very smokey recently, took the exaust of and cleaned ot to find where i think its coming from. Hopefully there is a picture to go with this that shows the spot and you can see some oil there as well. Is there an easy fix for this?

    560 oil tank leak

    The saw runs fine, yes, its only bar oil. Just smokey as the oil gets on the exhaust when your cutting.

    560 oil tank leak

    Cheers for that. This is an old one, probably within the first year they came out. I will give them a crank up and see if it fixes it.
  6. This will be our 4th trip from Dorset to Scotland for climbing seed collection on native Scots Pine. There will be 5 of us traveling up, renting out a small house. We will be working 10 days between 03/12 - 14/12/18. Aviemore - Dulnain Bridge. I am keen to see if there is a local climber to boost our numbers for a bit of time. They will need to be used to experienced with efficient access into 25m trees(throwline and SRT) and have there own kit to do this. If any one is keen or knows some one who may like this type of work then get in touch. Even if its only a few days they can help on its making connections for the future. Possibly another 2 weeks work in the new year as well. Ian Geddes - 07592413917 info@tollertreecare.co.uk Photo of the trees here -
  7. I think I spotted some of the stumps with the holes drilled in them. Maybe even saw a laminated sheet explaining.
  8. It is indeed, great spot to spend a few weeks . . . if the weather is kind!
  9. In theory yes, there wont be enough room in our accommodation for others. Pop me an email with where your bassed as we cover a fair bit of ground each year.
  10. I can only assume the relevant permision has been granted with the land owner. The whole woodland is a registered seed stand. I am contractor who carrys out the collection and not involved in registering the stands and obtaining permision ect.
  11. Its a bit of both realy. Travel is covered by the mile and the money is fair. Less than a days tree work but not as much expansive kit in use. The work is good to do, each trip will yield enought seeds to make over a million trees. Its always been a good group of friends I bring up as well so thats good crack. Some times get some skiing in as well.

    Dorchester job, anyone want some wood?

    What side of Dorchester are you working on? I am in Toller Porcorum but will know plenty of places in the area you could find a home for it. How much is a large amount? Oversized?

    Jotul - You should only burn hardwoods

    Got told the same thing by a manufacturer at a show as well, I disagreed with him but didnt feel the need to discuss further.

    OREGON field test

    I think I have a parcel at home as well but I didnt have the option for 200/201, only a 150 . . . Is that the same thing?

    Ride on mower vs tractor and topper?

    Bramble wont do any thing to them, my tyres have them stuck in all over and they dont seem to cause a problem. I have had one slow puncture after cutting thorns, the one in the pics above. Just put some gunk in there and pumped it back up. Will do the same in the others if i get a problem.

    Ride on mower vs tractor and topper?

    Great on slopes. Will go up some thing very steep and up to 30 degrees accross the slope. Much better than a mini tractor. Depending on what one you go for I expect it would cost 6-10k. I wouldnt say its designed for pulling a trailer.

    Ride on mower vs tractor and topper?

    That one is a 98x, it is a proper fun machine to use, I did a 10h day on it a few weeks ago, that wasnt so comfy. It realy does get throught the material and very nimble.

    Ride on mower vs tractor and topper?

    A ride on brushcutter would do the trick for you. I have had this about 2 months now and its a great machine. This is a powerfull 4x4 with 98cm cut width but a smaller two wheel drive i expect would be ok for you.
