  1. I personally think that the battery range of trimmers now on the market are far superior to the motorised ones. Cordless chainsaws are getting better each year.
  2. Just starting to move all saws over to aspen but unfortunately my little 150 does not seem idle, no matter how I tune it but if I put in pump fuel it runs fine again. Could anyone shed some light on the problem. Thanks in advance
  3. Cs100 would be a great long-term investment and hold their money very well.
  4. If you have a hitch climber set up go for the rope wrench as the only additional thing you need is a stiff tether. I use the zigzag with the rope wrench with a steel tether I got from America before the chicane came out and have to say the Zigzag works great on SRT.
  5. It's easier to phone to place your order.
  6. Try this company, they are a copy of greenteeth but are half the price and I found them to last twice as long. QRMS Ltd Only downside is your teeth pockets wear slightly faster as they are a bit smaller in diameter.
  7. I was wondering if anyone had used the wearsharp greenteeth and if they found that they lasted longer then the regular greenteeth. Thanks
  8. Thanks for the reply. When I did my research it seem that there was no real saving once accountancy bills have been taking into consideration.
  9. How much profit do you need to to make going limited worthwhile against being a sole trader.
  10. I don't think the old ones had a turbo. They used the turbo on the std8 to get 45hp out of the same engine. I think Greenmech have gone down the route of having a heavier flywheel to produce more torque from a less powerful engine. Wonder if forst have done the same with the fly wheel.
  11. It looks like the STD6 has the same engine as before but only producing 24 hp rather then 35 hp as before to comply with stage V emissions. Is this done by putting a restrictor on the engine and is it possible to remove once the chipper has been brought. Can't see how the new STD6 would be able to compete with the old ones with a drop in horse power.
  12. Have the price's for diesel chipper's now taken a big price jump due to the additional cost of having a stage V engine.
  13. Unfortunately OPM is now out of control and will eventually cover the majority of the country. Not only will it make it more difficult to carry out work on Oak trees but we will start to lose our Oak, I have heard of a number that have had to be felled due to the damage caused by the caterpillar. It's ridiculous that is started off from a few trees that were imported from Holland and planted by Hanger Lane, London. It would be good if the ARB association could provide training on how best to deal with it as it can be very detrimental to your health.
  14. The ARB trolley really changed things for me. I remember when we had handball everything out of the garden. Also helmets. Remember when everyone had the same husqvarna helmet with the elastic chin strap.
  15. Pfanner arborist Type A are probably the lightest trousers for tree work.
