  1. Anyone tried these out? New boot time and browsing on tree kit found them and never heard of them
  2. Anyone else had a go with a pair of fitwells? Tempted to try out the Fitwell Chop boots that they sell on tree kit
  3. Approx 5k +vat depending on spec (tool box, barn doors, ladder rack ect). Can probably get it cheaper if you shop around and willing to travel
  4. Got my hilux converted a year a go and love it. I use it as my every day vehicle as well so didn't want a transit ect. The chip capacity isn't huge but I just price accordingly for that extra tip run.
  5. I'm sure the customers wouldn't leave a shit in the toilet if the plumber was coming round. Why should we have to deal with the Dog shit!!!
  6. Wouldn't say there's a massive difference really, I think whatever you've got on when it's above 20 degrees is going to make you sweat. Haha yeah type c's is not what you want in the summer, or winter for that matter 🤣
  7. Yeah definitely. The Ventilation are still very comfortable to climb in though
  8. I found the arborists more comfortable but didn't last anywhere near as long as the ventilation

    It gets though it no problem, a little slower than a bigger machine but that's to be expected. You soon learn what it's capable of and sned branches when needed. I've no regrets buying mine

    I bought one a couple of years ago for my first chipper and it's been brilliant. Obviously doesn't compare to the bigger models but keep the blades sharp and machine maintained and it will serve you well. I managed to wheel it to the bottom of a garden yesterday and chipped a big leylandii happily all day
  11. Can anyone help with my echo?? Brillaint sayw when working but recently mine has nearly been thrown out the tree on many occasions. Starts and runs fine from cold and the idle is spot on. The problem is when it warms up and then turned off. When I try to restart it has to be full choked and then half choked for it to start. I noticed the primer bulb doesn't have any fuel in so a few pumps is required. It also seems to be a little low on power. My saw knowledge is pretty basic but any ideas on what to try would be greatly appreciated.
  12. I've had many pairs of airstream and decided to give the rocks a go. Only been wearing them 2-3 months but first impressions very good. Feet don't seem to get as cold as in the originals and the grip seems to be better on slippy surfaces. The real test will be how long they last. I usually get 12-18 months out of the original airstreams before the sole has completely worn through and my toes coming out the bottom
  13. What have you guys done for rear suspension?? I know its been asked a thousand times but can't make up my mind!! Air bags seem the easier option and simple to fit?? Changing to heavy duty leaf springs can make the ride horrible when empty??
  14. Change to the husky flip caps. Fit perfectly and easy to undo
