  4. Has any one managed to get a discount for Honeybrothers ? if so please tell all, thanks. also has any one found any way cheaper than HB (inc VAT)
  5. thanks for the reply's everyone. I think this will be a trial period for the headsets, so we have to try and keep it cheap n cheerful for now. I hope they are as good as everyone is saying. Has anyone got any pics maybe, of how they set theirs up ? wire configs and such ? thanks
  6. how come up topped the second one where you did ? hell of a sway. I wish i could experience those kind of heights, all the best any way Reg
  7. morning all I recently had a training day with a chap called Simon Scotting and we ended up chatting about helmet intercom. He mentioned for around £70 you can buy bluetooth intercoms for our style of helmets and the results were amazing. so this got me thinking, how do they work? Do you need your bluetooth phone on you at all times to make it work ? Or are the devices them selves bluetooth? not really keen on carrying my phone around the tree with me. Has anyone got any past experience of the slightly cheaper ones ? How many can you link up together ? I have heard mainly good things about helmet intercoms and would love to jump on the band wagon but just would like some feed back from anyone who has used them and maybe some pics ? Thanks
  8. The sprocket and crank were replaced in my 261 last year because of severe rocking on the sprocket plate. This kept leading to clutch springs snapping, the saw not starting with the chain brake on and many other issues. Just wondering what everyone else is using instead of the 261 or whats size saw is one up from the 261 ?? Thanks
