  1. Are there any land rovers here who use a pto hydraulic pump for a log splitter, small forestry crane,...? Which make/type do you use? What size hydraulic tank do you use? Where is it mounted? I'm located in Belgium and here no one uses hydraulic on pto. Thank you in advance.

    Recovery winch for tree work.

    I have superwinch talon 12.5 with synthetic rope on a heavy loaded defender 130 (about 3tonne with all arb equipment in it) I often get stuck witch a loaded ifor trailer behind it and my winch has never let me down, it always pulled te whole thing out. The defender is equipped with two deep cycle batteries and I'm able to use the battery on the tipping trailer as an extra powersource when winching.

    Alpine tractor talk

    How does the agt 835 with forestry cab perform in terms of extracting wood with a forest winch or a skidding grapple? Does anyone here use it also with a mulcher or flail mower? Is it possible for taller persons to work with it or is it really small? I'm currently looking for a small tractor for extracting wood from gardens and small forestry work, and in a few uears perhaps use it also for flail mowing small forest tracks. Is it suitable for this work?
  4. Has anyone an idea of the weight of the hm130 trekker xl? Does it come with homologation certificate?

    which setup will cut faster?

    I have an 880 with 36" mill and 42" bar, and it works great, but i was wondering why the new panther mills were only made in 3/8 lowpro
  6. Hello, Has anyone tried yet wich setup will cut faster, 660 with 3/8 low pro or 880 with .404?

    Stihl Cordless range ....

    The waiting list on the hedge cutters is due to a recall of the hsa, they say it's a safety issues, certain hedge cutters have problems that the 2 hand safety doesn't work always. Mine was recalled in may, went yesterday to the shop to get it back because they still have no new hedge cutters. I never had any issues with it, great bit of Kit!

    Prices of oak slabs

    Hello, I cut a few trunks of American red oak in 3 inch slabs. There is someone who is interested in these slabs, but I have no idea what they are worth. Length is about 9feet, average width 25 inch and thickness 3 inch.

    Chain catcher on 880

    I bought a stihl ms880 last summer and used it to cut some firewood before using it on the alaskan mill. I wanted to mount it on the mill yesterday and wanted to demount the felling teeth (don't know the word in english) when I noticed that the chain catcher is a roller type, mounted on those, is it possible to mount a normal chain catcher?

    3/8 vs .404

    Ok, it'll be .404 then, when I get the saw and guide, I'll order the .404 chains at chainsawbars since stihl doesn't sell them anymore on Belgian market. Thanks for the advice

    3/8 vs .404

    On a stihl 880 wich chain would be best for ripping? 3/8 ripping chain or .404?
  13. I wanted to solder a cig lighter plug on my granberg precision chainsaw mill and accidentally cut off both clamps before marking the wires, so i mounted it the way i thought it to be mounted, but which way should iy normally turn? Clockwise or counterclockwise, looking from machine to grinding stone?

    <p>Hi Rob,</p>

    <p>I've put a cig lighter plug on my granberg chainsaw sharpener, but I'm not quite sure if didn't switch polarity. In wich direction should the grinding stone turn? When you look from the motor towards the grinding stone, clockwise or counter-clockwise?</p>
