  3. Hi guys, Client has just given me his newish looking '4 stroke' Honda hedge trimmer to look at,as it conks out quite regularly when turned on either side I am totally unfamiliar with this new 4 stroke tech.:-) Is it really a small 4 stroke engine? Does anyone know if these new Honda machines have issues as I had to take a look at a Honda strimmer which also had issues.the build quality seems quite low. Cheers Hazelnut in kent

  7. hi i have just purchased an old 066 with plenty of grunt but it seems to destroy the plastic roll cage bearing in the clutch/brake drum which are made out of plastic ! and after reving the saw up it always blitzs them.are they all made from plastic now.maybe i shouldnt put red grease on them when they are new. i have a original part being sent to my local dealer but some of their staff agree it will be a plastic cage with metal rollers.it seems to fit nicely but the old 066 screams through timber.any ideas how i could stop this problem..cheer ,matt hazelnut tree care east kent

  9. Timberwolf 2004 TW150 DHB stalls after revving

    hi ive just serviced the machine with all new kubota parts.the hydraulic tank air filter and hyd oil filter were in awful condition and the in-line fuel filter was a non genuine cheapy which looked like it wasnt ever holding enough fuel anyway the original filter looks pukka and has fuel allround it.if it still does it i will then go through the electrical switches one by one..

  12. Seasoning question

    i had a large dying robinia once for firewood and ended up with over a ton or two of rubbish stem/cord wood.it dried to a very light wood like eucalyptus and wasnt too good for burning either..other people have said to me they thought it was ok but i wouldnt use it for firewood again.maybe for bulking out loads.it does have a lovely deep unusual colour and i think would be well worth milling or sanding down..
