  1. the quote is for 52 cube, which is an artic load. yep, already cut, split and seasoned. I am based in lowestoft ok maybe ill have to reconsider the offer...😁
  2. I am looking for a full or half load of firewood rounds to process myself for personal use and to sell the odd load to a few friends, just wondering if anyone can suggest somebody who will deliver to Lowestoft. what sort of price is it at the moment? does not have to be processor quality straight lengths preferably hardwood just had a quote for processed seasoned hardwood at £75 per cube for 52 cube lorry so it looks like i will be processing myself... Thanks
  3. I bought one last January after my original post, have not been disappointed. it is very fast and pretty powerful. the only thing which has gone is the clutch springs, i contacted woodmanstore where i got it from, sent a video of the problem and then they sent new better ones to me under warranty. I suggest you speak to whoever you got it from, they will probably say whats wrong then will send you the parts and a 'how to' video.
  4. can anyone help identify what this strange green/red patches are on the left of the timber?? some kind of fungi?? or is it a more uncommon natural beauty? it is a lump of ash that came off a dead ash tree a couple of months ago ill try and get some better pics which show up the amazing colours better
  5. Thanks for all your help It has been down a couple of months already I think I will have to consider getting a 660!
  6. I am just wondering what you guys recon is the best setup for a 460? ( it has a dual port muffler) I have quite a bit of ash that needs milling but do you recon it will cope with a 30'' because the 25'' isn't quite long enough for quite a bit of the timber I have to mill? What about solid nose bars? Or is it time to get a 660
  7. Has anyone used one of these? very seriously looking at one and just wondering what is reliability/ parts etc like? with 35 tons at that speed i dont recon there is much it wont split or am i wrong? thanks for your help guys
  8. I am yet another lover of these great trousers. top marks all round! anyone got any reviews for the new blue ones yet?

    MS 150t

    Are you guys using the 10'' or 12'' bars on the 150t?
  10. I am fairly new to this trade, and am looking at getting training/qualifications as soon as possible. just wondering, is it possible to get public liability insurance without the qualifications for the time being just to do a few smaller jobs and to get a bit of income (and experience) and to help fund the training? how much would this cost? thanks your advice is appreciated!
  11. the piston rings disintegrated and left both the pot and piston heavily scored. probly excessive wear or it could be that i was using a 24'' on it which it didnt really like my friend has a fairly new 560. will have to give it a shot and see how i get on
  12. yep! now very seriously considering a ms362. the 560xp has had no end of problems and parts are expensive too.
  13. thanks, just had a closer look and discovered one of the 3 little springs has snapped. sorry to be thick but has that caused it not to return to idle or has 2 different problems happened at the same time?
  14. Sorry am a newbie on here... I have a 560xp (2011? i think) which had a new genuine pot and piston a few months ago and i have only done about 30 hours ish work with it since. i was using it yesterday to limb and chop up a dead ash which we felled. After a while when i released the throttle it would not return to idle and the chain would continue rotating at a fairly decent pace. also when you applied the chain brake it stalled?! any ideas what the problem is?
