    is a timber Croc worth the money

    Made one of these croc type things years ago. Had just bought a welder and was knocking u metal projects left right and centre. I soon got tired of picking up logs off of the floor. For the diy/home logger, I don't think you can beat those portec type logging benches that you clamp a chainsaw to. Bought one 15 years ago and it still lives. I extended the legs on it so the logs drop straight into a wheel barrow and then wheeled straight to the splitter.

    Which Chainsaw for Forestry

    I think the 441 was the most characterless and unimpressive saw I have ever used, but each to their own. I'm thinking about another saw and would quite like a 462, but I can't justify the price. Might go the 560 route.

    They do it to cause pointless debates on forums ๐Ÿคฃ

    462 kicks out 6hp and weighs just 6kg, how can that not be powerful for a 70cc saw? That's more punch than the makita 7900 and that's no slouch.

    Time off at Xmas -- How much are you taking

    Easier said than done I know, but if you aren't going to do anything about it, don't waste your time and effort worrying about it. Enjoy the time off with family and start fresh in the new year ๐Ÿ‘

    How do you keep yourself motivated?

    So lets get this right. You sat inside a dry van and then sat inside the house, in the dry, having a brew whilst poor auntie unloaded logs in the rain ๐Ÿ˜œ

    How do you keep yourself motivated?

    Didn't need to look out of the window this morning to know it wasn't going to happen. Spent the day in the shed tinkering on the motorbike.
