    Buying a new Sawhorse

    hi logs,looks the very same as the forestmaster,which i have,the f/m i think is a bit cheaper, only one thing with the f/m is its abit low for me,at 5ft 10in. i put a couple of height extensions on the cross bars at the bottom to bring it up,around 10in or so.after that no probs with the old back.regards struie

  10. bit of a dilemma here guys. was on a job last week with a digger op,bringing down a sitka,and small birch.anyway the sitka came in at around 3ton or so,down it came,no probs,untill the digger op said he did not have his saw with him,he asked to borrow one of mine, the wee bell started ringing, as i had to climb n reduce the birch,leaning over a 6foot fence,i let him use the saw,the last thing i said was not to cut the bottom limbs supporting the sitka,i would get them when i came down to fell the birch.anyway he trapped the saw under the sitka,well it is now u/s,squashed,knackered.do i take payment of the saw when new,700 pound ten years or so ago when i bought it,or settle for a second hand replacement which i dont really think i want to.would appreciate advice here.regards struie.
