    Small pro saw

    I've got Stihl equipment -but that's because of the very good service at our local dealership-. I know I should not curse in husky-church or Stihl-synagoge, but just buy at a company that gives you the best aftermarket service -doesn't matter if its Husqvarna or Stihl. On the 261: nice to work with, but I had some trouble with them after a year. Don't know if there are similar problems with Husqvarna Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk

  5. I didn't want to look at the battery powered equipment -t-handle saw in my case- at first as well. Working at a few sound sensitive locations I thought I give it a try. This was about 2 years ago. Whenever I do not need the extra power of the heavier petrol chainsaws I will take the e-saw -Stihl for me, but just because my supplier is a friend as well and his shop close to home- Bought the hedgecutter a few months back. Don't do a lot of hedges, but use it whenever I can. Strong enough for most jobs. I have two batteries and a speedcharger I can plug in in the truck. Never had a problem, and after two years the battery is about the same as it was new. Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk

  8. Yes, big Jenz, big Valtra. Asked the operator if he wantend me to cut it up, but he said it would fit in the machine no problem... Well, I just had to see that ofcourse! Sent from my iPad using Arbtalk
  9. [ame]https://vimeo.com/180652350[/ame] Impressed.., vid speaks for itself. But just for an idea: that's a 35-40" poplar dissapearing in that machine. Very nice. Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk
  10. They use a large forest flail mower. Does the job very well. Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk
  11. If you mean the area in the vid I posted, it is extremely wet most of the year. Luckily it's dry at the moment. It's filmed in the south of Holland. These poplars should have been removed years ago -like 25-35 years ago- but the former owner didn't like removing trees from her land. Last year the decission was made to remove the oldest of the trees because they started collapsing. Sent from my iPad using Arbtalk

  13. Rabaud. Only got a small one but very effective. Mine is towable and uses its own petrol engine and hydraulics so I don't need a tractor or powerpack. Not the fastest of them all, but fast enough for what I do with it. Ow, and what others already metionned... reliable Sent from my iPad using Arbtalk

  15. I just did the ETW course in the Netherlands. In most European countries you don't need a qualification to do arbwork, but most companies and clients ask for the ETW qualification.
