  1. It is what it is Mark it’s a old battered machine but it does what it says on the tin and as it breaks we fix it the joys of old tools I suppose Jack
  2. It’s as rough as a badgers arse needs the safety bar on the hopper mended as it doesn’t work it needs stripped right down and shot blasted painted and needs new side panels as well i thought it was a fortune for what it is deffo not worth 10k + it’s still 10 years old Jack
  3. My pal has just got a 2010 Timberwolf 150 DHB tow behind not sure on hours clock doesn’t work it’s a really good machine the only problem he has had with it is he was chipping and the rotor fins had shattered and came through the discharge shoot leaving a few dints on it’s way out and the 3 belts that run the rotor had shot off and apart from the chassis being snapped when he got it it’s a brilliant machine to use runs like a dream and starts of the key first time every time the other advantage is parts are on the shelf nearly everywhere you look I think he paid £7895 about 3 month ago makes workload so much easier but you do need a good chip box and ideally a lid don’t forget to cover the headboard as well otherwise say goodbye to your back window Jack
  4. I've got the km 85/94/131 never had a problem with either got both the old and new heads and the newer one is best for trimming the kombi system is a perfect all around machine they arent the lightest but very useful ive used the hl94 aswell and thought there was more than enough power and was well balanced just couldnt justify that much money in one machine when a kombi does the same job but more at the same time but each one of us has our own personal preference Jack
  5. What about a kombi system stihl km94 with 145 degree 60cm cut and hs45 24" and you'll have change aswell Jack
  6. Sounds like fuel pump wants re-timed or replaced or leak in one off the fuel lines / leaking injector seal Jack
  7. I'd get a fab shop to build a new one and get it galvanised you see them body's on 14 15 plate trucks and there rotten really bad metals used so get a decent steel one rather than folded tin and galvanise it and it should last a good 10 - 15 year if well looked after Jack
  8. Has it actually rotted through or is it just surface rust atm? Them one stop sub body's are tin thin and only last 3 - 4 year before they start going dodgy if its surface rust take it off get it shot / soda blasted then galvanised and it'll last a good few years Jack
  9. You never thought about toro? Supposed to be a good product and easy to get parts for apparently Jack
  10. I used to use a fs300 until it seized eventually ass it had been lacking in power for a while so then bought a fs360 and what a machine I put the autocut 46-2 strimmer head on it using stihl 2.7mm red round line and it cuts anything and everything been doing bits of overgrown orchards and bits of woodlands and it is incredible I reccomend it highly Jack
  11. If the job is close to the farm and theres a few loads it's easier to go there than to trail to the compost yard time is most important to me off I'm closer to the compost yard I'll use that just depends where I'm at at thee time for convenience Jack
  12. I've got a waste carriers license and what's wrong with having a bonfire? What about the 5th November is that illegal aswell? Next time I go ill take fireworks along with me and celebrate the full monty my pal is a farmer so it's his own land so there is no fly tipping at all I've also got a compost yard to use costs £20 a ton but it's a bit out of the way so sometimes easier to burn it? There's so many stupid laws about burning waste if it was general rubbish fair enough but it's wooden fence panels posts ect its burnable materials 🙄 Glad to clear it up Jack
  13. I've got a man who has a big burn pile charges £20 a load tipper + trailer so doesnt cost a lot pig mesh gets folded up and put to one side until there is enough for a weigh in Jack
