  1. I do split some of the bigger stuff first, the splitter takes up to 20". Much bigger diameter than that just pushes the plastic cups out of shape. Sometimes it's just best to cut the bigger stuff on the ground !
  2. I'd certainly recommend the Truncator, if your cutting timber 6" diameter or less.
  3. I have a Balfor petrol powered A9 Vario, which i would recommend. Great for dealing with arbwaste, multi position means big rings can be broken up on the deck. Had this for several years and not been many knotty chunks it hasn't gone through !!
  4. Saw my first swallow yesterday:001_smile:
  5. That's Heritage logs and other site mentioned is at Bolney
  6. That Sounds a better option than using the wheeled loader !
  7. I take it they are in short lengths, why not offer for sale to be collected from the wood, rather than the hassle of recouping cost of moving yourself. As others have said great firewood, seasons quick,very little ash left, don't know why so many folk turn there nose up at it.
  8. Hi Andrew, i'd be interested, but had a quiet winter and still got plenty of timber left and no more room for anymore at the moment.
  9. With a driver in my experience they will charge for the day even if job only takes a couple of hours
  10. Are you on hpoc, loads of info and helpful members Mine's older unfortunately
  11. If it was me i would go for Yew Eleagnus makes a good hedge what about Laurel or Photinia?
  12. Only had mine since February, but would recomend Balfor's Vario, from Riko. Only a 9ton, around 100kg.

    Ash dieback???

    All good here. A few are still a bit sparse, but nothing to do with dieback. Never known them to have been that late before.

    Ash dieback???

    As others have said,they were very late coming into leaf in this area too,and still not fully in leaf. All seemed healthy up until autumn.
