    Tiny echo!

    I've had the Echo 260TES for about a year and half now, which I think was the forerunner to the 2510?. It's got a 10" bar with the skinny chain, and it's been faultless. Surprising amount of power for something that weighs the same as a key chain ornament, and with the thin chain it rips through even oak up to bar length.
  2. Thanks, I though that might be the case but hadn't come across it before. Will give it a trim tomorrow..!
  3. Hi folks Does anyone know what is going on here? We put this cherry in a couple of years back and it's doing well enough, but there seems to be a sucker of some kind growing from the graft. Is this part of the rootstock trying to take the tree back or something else going on? Graft is about 2" about the root swell, so is very close to the soil line.. Hopefully clear from the photos.. Any thoughts/advice appreciated! Thanks
  4. This is ours. Built from treated fence posts set into the ground with Metpost spikes, pallets underneath and as dividers. Roof is Corolast bitumen stuff. The roof slopes the wrong way which makes loading a bit harder, but makes it less obtrusive in the garden. It has a 6" airgap along the top of the back wall too, which helps throughflow of air. It gets what little sun we have on the front face, so dries pretty much anything from green to burnable in 6-9 months...even in Wales.. Holds just over a year of wood for our use (one big log burner in the middle of the house).
