  1. What are the legalities of removing fallen trees, that are on a public footpath? I am not talking about taking them for firewood, instead just removing the tree from the path and leaving it in the woods. Any advice, would be much appreciated
  2. Just got this brand new toro (with 30" deck) and if fracking awesome. I would 100% recommend it to anyone lokking for a large commercial mower. I will be doing a full review once I have used it a bit.

    It was a joke. But in retrospect, posting that probably got me on a watch list, since GCHQ is only a couple miles from my house . Also you really think just any bobby can arrest chuck norris?

    If you could arm a security bollard

    Nitroglycerine Pros: Can be made with kids chemistry set cheap 1 kg could level a building Cons: very unstable (direct sunlight can ignite) 100% ilegal How to make: 1-Cool 13 mL of nitric acid using the ice created by the refrigerator. 2-After it has cooled, add to 39mL sulfuric acid (99% h2so4), mixing very slowly. 4-Cool the new mixture to 10-15°C, which we can measure with the thermometer already “invented.” 5-Slowly add enough glycerin to cover the entire surface of the acid. 6-Keep the solution below 30°C. 7-Stir gently for ten minutes, then the nitroglycerin will form as a layer on top of the acid solution, while the sulfuric acid will absorb the excess water. 8-Filter out the nitroglycerin and place it in sodium bicarbonate, which will neutralize much of the acid remaining. This will help to stabilize it. 10-Now slowly and carefully remove the nitroglycerin from the bicarbonate.

    Anyone want a free chainsaw?

    I have got one of those cheap Chinese imports laying around and I was wondering if anyone wanted it. I have no clue if it works and I don't really have time to test it. collection from Cheltenham , or I could post for about £20. If anybody wants it, I need to know by Wednesday.

    Saw not idling

    After rebuilding my saw (new carb/top end), it has started to have issues idling. The issue is that it will only start on full throttle, and will stop when throttle is released. I have fiddled with the L screw to no avail, and the fuel pipe, filters and carb where all replaced in the rebuild, so it will not be them. I am kind of stumped now, so any help would be much appreciated

    Cutting Fallen trees from public footpaths?

    You can get away with a lot just by looking official, I guess people put a lot of trust I a uniform.

    Cutting Fallen trees from public footpaths?

    Bit big for a handsaw, since it is bout 16' where it blocks the path.

    Cutting Fallen trees from public footpaths?

    Yeah I know I could get away with it (just wear a hi vid and the dog walkers won't mind ), it was more a question of would I get into any trouble if I did get caught.

    Cutting Fallen trees from public footpaths?

    Yes they are, but that doesn't change the fact that they don't do any work on any footpaths, outside of the town. Trees falling on paths and just being left blocking them, is very common in my area. the only reason I am considering moving this one is that I have been climbing over it every day for A month.

    Cutting Fallen trees from public footpaths?

    I am not working it the woodland, it is just a path I use daily to walk my dog. I would guess the woodland is not managed, since it is on a slope, has multiple public foot path and has no timber of any value. So in this situation where the council/land owner clearly do not care to do anything, do you think it is acceptable to clear the tree from the path, since it is both a nuisance and a hazard?

    Cutting Fallen trees from public footpaths?

    I know it is the council/land owners responsibility, but they don't seem to care. I want to clear it because I walk my dog on the path daily, and it is a real pain to get past/over it.I doubt it has been left intentionally since there is not a chance, of anyone getting a 4x4 up.
