  1. Any mores info on this? Always thought self seeders grew/rooted better than planted trees? Would it mean self seeders blow over more than plantation trees?

    Beware the Blackthorn Winter

    Damson/bullace already in flower for a week here (North Wales)
  4. They came with a .325 and .50 gauge bar 15" Using this combo atm: https://www.chainsawbars.co.uk/product/150txlbk095-oregon-speed-cut-bar-15-325-050-64-drive-links/ https://www.chainsawbars.co.uk/product/95txl-oregon-lo-pro-325-050/ But saw came with dolmar brand chain & bar Seems to work fine, sharpening has to be got just right for the diagonal gob cuts or removing butresses (basically cutting against the grain) especially in hardwoods like beech otherwise saw bogs down Saws are good apart from the poor design of the chain tensioner nub which sits in the bar which could be beefier ive knacked/worn/bent a few so had to order some new ones. Also replaced a "oil worm" that wore out maybe coz I use veg oil. I think the 15" low pro bar suits the saw. Wouldn't fit a larger bar.
  5. Sorry one in previous post above was not the right one (an older type) my saws both have this: https://www.google.co.uk/search?ei=nq6OXIn7H6HrxgPZz7roAw&q=195173050&oq=195173050&gs_l=psy-ab.3...2030.4988..5269...0.0.. I have 2 of theese saws, an ea4300 and dolmar 420SC (EU name for 421) both from germany they are the same saws both came with nylon filters the same design. See the diagram shows both types: http://download.dolmar.com/manuals/19932.pdf Didn't realize there was even flocked filters?

    Need advice, want to upgrade my saw.

    Having used a 181 even a decent 40cc would be a huge leap up from a 181 in cut speed/performance but hardly an increase in saw weight. e.g 241 So i reckon you need 2 new saws for different diameter wood & keep the 181 as a spare. 🙂
  7. Mine has a nylon mesh one from new. https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/Air-Filter-DOLMAR-350-420-Bis-Bj-11-2009-195173211/942811248 I thought flocked were better?

  10. Not that long lived compared to most other species & wood rots very fast if left in stacks outdoors. (Odd as is regarded to be really rot resistant in water) Still nice trees though.

    Douglas Fir and sequoia value

    Wow seems thats expensive? What will you use it for?
  12. Mrs miggins don't really care or think much about the enviroment so it would be a niche market advertizing as a low carbon etc. Interested if anyone actually does bother to make a point of doing so though... I like lecky tools though less fumes when using comapred to 2 stroke...

    what's up with swearing?

    Endangered species like scottish wildcats maybe they need a captive breeding program....

    Ticks away!

    Bit paranoid about the idea of wearing cloths impregnated with insecticides. Suppose a dose of chemicals that kill ticks is less bad than getting lymes disease though Weirdly it kills/f88ks up cats ..... https://www.google.co.uk/search?ei=aSyGXP-IIIKX1fAP3JKJoAg&q=permethrin+cats&oq=permethrin+cats&gs_l=psy-ab.3..0l2j0i22i30l8.30018.31118..31461...0.0..
