    Hardwood available Duxford

    Hi I live in Bishop's Stortford, and I have a Landrover and 8 x 4 trailer, so I could move it from site if that helps you out. Tel 01279 755767 or mobile 07749754789 Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk

  6. I built a log store out of round posts with plastic papers for the base, and a corrugated bitumen roof. The roof is black which causes air to rise through the structure as the roof heats up in the sun. The sides are semi open to let more air through. I have divided it into 3 bay's as the most seasoned i.e. oldest log and the one you want is always at the bottom at the back! I fill and use the bays in rotation. Here is a link to a you tube video, which may give you some ideas, although this was designed for personal use, I can at least guarantee my logs are well seasoned as I know when I cut and stacked them! Also as I designed it around pallets, a fork lift might be able to retrieve a one ton sack at a time. Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk

    Makita saw

    I have just checked with Wicked customer service, they are showing zero stock! It is easy to sell stuff cheaply if you don't have any!
  8. Hi what would the price be on a 115 and a 5015, and which o e would you go for?
  9. I am looking to get a 50cc saw, I prize reliability and good engineering, and have been impressed with a smaller Makita / Dolmar 34, and 3501. I also have a Still 390. In practice I tend to go for the lightest saw that will do the job at hand as the Stihl gives me backache and the air filter clogs up quickly! I want a professional saw that will last me a long time, and I don't necessarilly want the latest gizmos and catalytic converters if they just add to the weight and reduce reliability, although easy start does appeal! FR Jones are doing good deals on the Husky 550, 10-15% off + spare bars and chains chucked in, but judging by comments it is not the most reliable saw out there ... The professional Makita 5000 appeals to me, as does the the Dolmar 5105 series or the older design Dolmar 115. Spare parts and servicing are a slight concern if I go for the Dolmar, are they readily available? I also hear good things about the Stihl 260. Which would you professionals go for, and are there any other brands I should look at in the 50cc range, or am I looking at the "best" saws available?

    <p>Hi Shavey</p>

    <p>I am interested in a Makita Dolmar 9010 to buck a 7' oak that was felled about a year ago. I have been pointed in your direction as regards the Dolmar, with a Sugi so.ething bar. What would you suggest? Full details on my posting today. I have been quoted £714 for the Makita with the standard bar, can you get close to this price? Also where are you located? My email us alastaircook57@gmail. Com if you want to contact me. Many thanks.</p>

     

  11. Hi Guys I have a huge Oak tree to buck, it was felled last year and is getting harder as we speak. It is 7 ft diameter at the base, and lying flat in a field. I have a couple of small Makitas, and a Stihl 390 with a 20" bar. I am thinking of getting a new Makita 9010 and understand that it is the same as the Dolmar, but just a different colour. I want a saw that will do the job and last, and I understand that the Dolmar Makita is an old proven but heavy design. When bucking, the weight of the saw will not be a concern, but I am worried about starting a 90 cc monster with no decompression valve. Have any users had experience with the saw, and is it easy to start? As regards bars, again I understand that the studs can be changed to fit longer bars, but would this invalidate the Makita 3 year warranty? It would come with a 30" bar as standard, but that would not go through the 7" diameter trunk, so I would have to cut the trunk into smaller pieces. Is it worth buying the Makita, and should I stick with the standard bar, or go for a modified one that would take longer bars, or should I persevere with my 20" Still and just spend the money on lots of shiny chains? One last question, are the Oregon M chains worth using in hard oak? Many thanks
