  1. That's a cross cut chain. Any ripping chain will cut faster. A 10-15 degree top plate is standard for most ripping chains. [emoji106]
  2. Nice yellow sticker [emoji106]
  3. If those big ash have brown heartwood, call me [emoji106]
  4. Personally I like stihl .404 full chisel ground to a 0 degree top plate. Hyper skip are good too for long bars in hard wood. I find that adjusting the depth gauge height to the species,width of cut and moisture content. The wider and drier, keep the depth gauges higher 0.5-0.6mm instead of 0.75mm. [emoji106]
  5. Scraped the car of ice, Cold but very bright and clear. [emoji106]
  6. The reason I say this, is because I tried something similar when I first started. Absolute nightmare. [emoji106]
  7. It's wind blown not windfall. The most dangerous trees there are. IF you've got your Forestry tractor and winch with trailer and crane paid off, And no other overheads at all. A large yard, processor and splitters, another forklift/tractor for moving the IBC's. Delivery vehicle. Volunteer staff. Etc etc etc. There's a massive difference between knocking out a few cube and a thousand cube. What kit will you use?
  8. No. Not unless it's 36" walnut. [emoji106]
  9. Bit of pippy poplar, cut with the logosol F2+ and the stihl ms661, came out nice [emoji106][emoji106][emoji106]
  10. Artisan... In France.... Registered business/micro enterprise... Fully insured Two men and a loader... Chainsaws etc Social contributions... €600-€800 a day. And half of that will go to the government.
  11. Yeah, Rob D is the man. If anyone knows it'll be him. [emoji106]
  12. What species,size and quantity are you looking for?
