  1. I wish I could do the same with the amount of junk my missus hoards in the house [emoji23] I’m not brave enough though lol.

    I’m not fussed on a lot of the craft lager or IPA. They seem to make them very ‘floral’ which makes it ok for a pint but not a session beer. ..... oh wait maybe that’s the answer to reduce my consumption rate [emoji23] If it’s a real beer I find it’s hard to beat Doombar or Tim Taylor’s ‘landlord’ is another good one but more often than not it’s a cold lager that hits the spot.
  3. I bet you don’t get one [emoji23]. Tilia platyphyllos for the leaf.

    The down side and the upside for me is my mum owns a pub and I’m Supporting trade by buying wine through the pub from the suppliers. It’s my effort for the economy and supporting independent businesses [emoji23]

    So, who’s drinking more in the evening during lock down. ? I’ve noticed I’m consuming more. Not that work has been much different to normal but definitely sinking more whilst in lockdown. Anyone else the same ? Maybe I need another workshop project so I’m drinking tea instead of booze most of the evening [emoji23]
  6. Dear All. I’m looking to buy a predator 38x stump grinder. Local dealer tells me shipment awaited and not here til July perhaps. Anyone looking to move a low hours machine on? I will consider comparable alternative makes of similar power output but having looked at a few machines I thought the predator suited my needs best. Thanks in advance
  7. If you don’t have time to sharpen them ensure a set of teeth are factored into a full days grinding and bin them. I would say switching to Rhino teeth would be a smart move. They are better for grinding and easier / quicker to sharpen so you might be more inclined to do it.
  8. They aren’t fragile at all. Had my 2511 since they came out. Had it modded by spud and it’s an awesome saw. Doesn’t need any special treatment. I’d say tougher than the current plastic fantastic saws by stihl. 201’s have far more a reputation for disintegrating handles and filter covers .....
  9. Even if you only do one project and sell it on it’ll be worth it in the time you save. I’ve not looked at the specs but I would imagine it’s hard to find one that will mortise 12” from one position. Maybe be worth you buying a second hand one then reselling to minimise your loss. Just check chain condition etc carefully. Make sure everything locks in position And hasn’t worn. Fantastic tools and will save you days and your sanity !
  10. I’m out topping fields at the mo. Drop me a message on 07780614112 and we can sort a time to bring it down. Cheers [emoji106]
  11. Are you able to fabricate a new subframe ? Cheers
  12. Sadly it’s shot. Not repairable.
  13. Anyone here sources a replacement tipper subframe for a transit or similar. I have a transit with a scattolini tipper. The van and the Arb back are in excellent nick but the subframe isn’t. Boulter tippers at Basingstoke built the conversion for me and could fabricate a replacement although quite pricey. So wanted to investigate if there are other options off the shelf so to speak. Anyone here replaced theirs ?
  14. I’ve had the same request. Going by the guidelines on last nights news if you can maintain social distancing then you should be able to deliver logs without concern.
  15. For mid size 50 -70 cc saws I run husqvarna now and I’m delighted with them.
