  1. Which one?

    Second that, I am new zigzag convert. Just ditched 13mm rope and dropped to 11.7mm, the self tending, ease of use, built in swivel, great device. Hitch climb seems hard work in comparison.
  2. Echo CS 280 TES

    I have one and dont really like it either, I guess against the 2511 anything feels huge. I wont buy another.. mines now broken, fuel tank has cracked so I will probably sell it. Just feels as big in the hand as a 201t but without the performance benefits.
  3. New addition

    Congrats, we celebrated 6 months with our collie this week. Cant believe the speed they grow!!! Enjoy:001_smile:

  5. Tiny echo!

    Is it me or did I score the Friday afternoon saw... Sick of new kit being sub standard. Mine wont hold its tuning, It seems ok for about an hour or so then wont idle properly again or pick up and is a pig to start.. Its such a light saw I love it but surely it should work!!!! Wishing I had kept the 2510!!!

  8. Starting out

    Which side of Notts are you?
  9. Tiny echo!

    Glad to hear it isn't just mine being a pig to tune. I spent a fair bit of time last Thursday trying to tune mine. Just wouldn't tick over especially when idling a while after a cut. I have managed to get it much more tolerable and seem to remember my 2510 getting better with time, just as it was recalled!!!
  10. An amazing dog

    I feel your pain, we lost our Collie in March this year to cluster seizure's. Ollie the collie, he was only 2 days off his 6th birthday. Finishing the year with our new boy Tig (Below) Wasn't looking for another dog this year but he just kind of happened, best way no time to doubt the decision!! Take care.
  11. Possible advertising scam

    Once you have been subject to one of these bogus advertising scams, they try and try again. I fell victim to one within my first year trading, never again but they distribute your number and keep pestering. If anyone rings selling any advertising, avoid at all costs.

  13. Best place to start in tree surgery

  14. Vermeer 625I things to watch out for??

    Yes be careful around corners. I have one and it has been on its side!! to prove the bomb proof issue, it was working again that day. Parts B-Trac, Vermeer Uk in Wellingborough. Very basic and very good machines but it wont keep up with a 150 timberwolf. Single roller so more snedding than twin roller machines. Flywheel bearings are expensive so make sure you get these from a bearing specialist rather than vermeer. Perkins diesel and kohler petrols are standard fit. Pm me if you need any more info.
