  1. Thats turned out like a pro job. I tend to find you take more care with nice gear
  2. Hi folks, I’ve just added my private address as a tip site just south of Lincoln, half mile from new ring road on A15. It’s going towards our own domestic use for our family running two stoves one for hot water and heating. With prior notice I’ll more than happily take anything burnable above 3inch but cannot take brash or chippings. I can assist unloading. But the grass out side has plenty of room if i’m at work. I’ve got a large ifor trailer and means to cut and chop. Happy to pick up from your job site or yard if my shifts allow. Days1week/evenings 1 week Id also be interested in buying cordwood on a large scale so any pointers would great thanks. LN4 2NF MOBILE 07801370134 cheers folks, regards Mikey Bryan
  3. Hey up boys, i just replaced the small tank filter on my cs100 and its transformed the starting. Its just started before id finished turning the key after id had tank off and all sorts. Was £16 quid from briggs dealer near me, 10 minute job. Could tell it was blocked as fuel was only dripping out of the line even with the tap open. Part number 808116S. Also fitted new starter solenoid after ruling out starter/battery voltage by direct starting across solenoid terminals. £13, quite a tricky jubilee clip so if you have chute off ever do it then. blasted air filter with air while i was going about all this and gave all fuel pipes a wipe down with wd40. Greased starter/flywheel teeth. i love this thread, particularly the mods!
  4. Hi folks, i have the wingate hi tip tracked dumper. I bought for a garage and extenstion build, Im only firewood collector/odd tree job hobby type, But its an absolute godsend when chopping wood. For bringing up large rounds, and dropping cuttings from balfour saw into great. I haven’t put towball on it yet but fairly straightforward on this type. One thing i like about it is the noise isnt deafening, doesnt piss off the neighbour, i believe some are loud, honda engine. IMG_4454.MOV
  5. Yes i have a moisture but as usual cant find it where. the wood does have hollow sound when you knock em together so should be okay. I also have some lengths of hawthorn and although its not been out there as long it split along it length. got a balfour firewood saw and its the muts, cant believe how it changes the process
  6. Hi folks, ive got some Aspen and Ash limbs 2-6 inches wide 4-6 ft long, been stored of the ground for 2years. Bark has come off Aspen but not ash. Can anybody tell me if these will have dried at all? in the past ive found stuff needs to season at its burn size but ive never had enough to do two years stacked. Your help is greatly appreciated
  7. Well ive got 25m of 30x30 box for £50, of cuts from fab shop. But 120 would be proper price id say
  8. Hi there, can anybody let me know the box section that ifor trailers use for the mesh sides please? Its an LM flatbed i want to make a set but ill copy the ifor ones to help keep resale value up. If anybody can nip out and measure up that would be great
  9. Yeah these are good for the job on the dolly. On my sack truck ii used to move round full 45 gallon drums occasionally. Never had a bearing go though. Time after the inner tube had failed.
  10. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F112870780016 four are 25 but just two are 15 so if you find a use for the extra two they’re pretty cheap. They come in sealed polythene so happily stay in the workshop until next mod comes up.
  11. Thats a great idea. I had a sack truck with normal wheels and they used to only last a year. Replaced with these so got two exta as been meaning to make the dolly for a while. Also got foam filled on my arb trolley but they were £30ea with bearings
  12. Made up a set of dolly wheels for front of CS100. They've been a great help. Obviously a lot easier to wheel about even though they dont steer. But the biggest plus point i wanted to share is how easy it is to push up 8ft skids. So much so i've decided not to bother fitting a winch. When having to balance on the rear wheels i found it impossible, and always working alone it was a right pain. . Speeded things up no end. Well worth knocking some up. Wheels were £12.50 from ebay. Foam filled. Steel, had anyway. Total time was a couple of hours. No more setting and hauling with pulleys. Pretty sure 6ft skid wouldn't be much harder. Not sure why pic is on the side.
  13. I haven't read the whole thread but my view of swearing in general is it's fine face to face or in pub/work etc but it being in the written word noramalises it. Young people on facebook etc are exposed to it from early age. Nothing worse than a facebook post F this C that. Its horrendous, and people wonder why children are swearing at teachers. All seems part of a general degradation in society. I still dont swear in front of my mum & dad, they wouldn't mind but just out of respect I think.
