  1. I picked up a second hand 200 last this time last year for £200. Ran first time no problems asked. Was a bit battered and bruised (no way near as clean as yours) so had to invest 50-80 quid to make it look and work to its true potential. Engine wise been great
  2. Yeah that is something that doesn’t surprise me
  3. My mistake I said Stihl when actually should of put Husqvarna 🤭
  4. Wondering if I was to buy a chainsaw from FR Jones would the warranty be valid at my local dealership If something was to go wrong ?
  5. Monterey Cypress Takedown from today. Had a power shutdown but the power company was running late which resulted in us sat on our arses for 3 hours waiting for them to turn up. So was guns blazing when they finally turned up. Will chog down to fellable height and knock it over tomorrow
  6. What condition is you rope in ? Recently had slip happening with my ZZ, granted not as much as yours but my rope had was pretty well used and due to be replaced which I did and now my ZZ is fine.
  7. Brought this up with my Boss as I’ve noticed it aswell, he mentioned he was talking to one estate manager type and they came to the conclusion it was frost damage from where a few warmer days in late winter/ early spring encouraged new shoots to shoot whilst at the same time still getting sharp frosts in the night leading the leaves to be scorched. Near me a long a field there’s a line of mature beech trees and they all have it, some worse than others. Cant think what else it could be but we have had a warm winter along with sharp frosts at night.
  8. Always baffles me people that don’t learn to drive, can’t imagine how life without the freedom of you’re own personal transport. Having to pick him up and take him home everyday would really grind on. Personal opinion though
  9. Haven’t climbed a bunch on SRT so my experience is limited but I was speaking to Adam from Acer tree surgeons (one of the guys helping in the sorbus tent) at the arb show about the ZZ and chicane combo. He made a valid point that the chicane is midline attachable meaning you could access the tree SRT with the chicane and ZZ then switch back DDRT with just the ZZ. Completely changed my initial opinion of the chicane as I use a ZZ
  10. Done Friday morning, finished editing today [emoji1303]
  11. Much prefer the adventure.. even if it doesn’t come around often for a Southampton fan.
  12. Facebook can be a nasty place, full of Facebook mums jumping on whatever they can to get their sad little kicks they need in their life. Always two sides to the story so should always think twice in making posts on social media bad mouthing a business or person as it can have serious consequences even when the business/person has done nothing wrong.
  13. In my example from yesterday the tree had uplifted from the stump and had a big crack up it so unable to climb otherwise I would of climbed up to install the line
