  1. Hi Have a Shindaiwa 48cc chainsaw that recently started running rough/cutting out. When running right it was a great mid sized saw The local repairers report it is f***** and say the piston and pot are scored rendering it beyond economic repair I can feel scoring on the piston but the pot feels smooth. Does anyone think the parts might be worth something if anyone has one Shindaiwa is Japanese not Chinese and not a bad make but this was new about mid 1990's so probably not many around now
  2. Yes its the link that Stere put on previous page. I'll let you know if they're s**** or ok for what they are I know steps with adjustable legs are great for uneven ground but haven't found any that go high enough
  3. Thanks Think Ill go for the 12 rung ladder steps. There's an offer on at mo..£184 with free delivery. Ultimate Height 8 mts and 5.5 with the a frame extension. Cheers

  8. Yes Thanks Short and sweet Ill try it tomoz
  9. Why am I struggling to use this set up...? Cant get the bloody things off the rope...Is there a sequence or what
  10. Veteran half dead oak in the way of a new shed. Planning requirement is to cut it, monolith it and move the cut "cylinder" to a nearby area and crane it into a hole and concrete it in. The moving and craning is down to builder. Today it was checked by an ecologist and then our ARB subbys did the coronet cuts/fracture pruning. Two large lower branches left on to weigh it over when felled and to cushion the fall by breaking. Guy up the tree was great (not me ) Got some nice close ups of his coronet cuts
  11. Could you explain more what you mean by this.....cheers
  12. thanks..any idea of price for whole thing
