    Epic crash though....havnt seen something cut in half like that since they released the 3120. Here's to safety & PPE girls & boys.

    I believe so Stubby. Going from the FB post they got through forcing a steel panel..Hard enough for small business these days without these scrotes sneaking about in the dark.?

    Not mine....local business support, just spreading the word.
  6. I've sheen what ye shed...yesh x
  7. Lazy fecks...trees need attention no matter the day.... I go 24/7, sometimes on blue light runs wit the cops if needed. Wolf comes with me, rain, dark, gale....don't give a f*ck. 1pm...3am. Somebody flies that corner into 4000kg of wood, there's only gonnae be one winner. I'd take ye on, put ye through tickets, but I'm on the wrong end of the wrong island. Somebody will though, just hunt them down, annoy them. Lots of genuinely top lads & girls on here that would help ?
  8. Don't get me wrong here, not saying thats amature cut in any sense, but if I had a pound for every shite pruning or reduction job I've come across by homeowners & wannabe arborists, where they think they are doing the tree a favour, lets just say I wouldn't need to work any more.
  9. It's no like Dildobaggins gets to use it much anyway, like Dempsey....that's me banned ?
  10. The groundie is quite gnarly though, picked the splitter up in his forearms & walked it onto the Ifor. Cleans his teeth with my chain grinder. [I'm dead if he sees this ?]
  11. Aye, cracking bit of kit. Sits on the Ifor trailer happily, gets through garden gates easily. Went for the Briggs/S engine becuase I'm not into using clients resources & plus you are fully free wherever, whenever, as with the chipper, saws etc. Thing did 9 hours flat with my groundie the other day, on one tank of unleaded & still had a slop in there. We were running some over sized blocks through it as well...well beyond the guide bars, sailed through it. Gonna look into the single lever mod as well. Seen some very cool retro engineering on these somewhere... ?
  12. On the home straight for the client. Happily knee deep in it. Took the wee Venom C 15t ton from Rock for the groundie...never missed a beat.
  13. Big multiple tree job complete. And what do you do with a large pine crowding out other trees? humboldt fell it at chest height perpendicular to its lean, without destroying the classic Rover P6, log & clear the trunk, then repurpose the high stump into an arty bird table with spiral polecat steps. Yas, got my calling card in.
  14. Are the Echo batteries backward compatible? Had a wee Echo topping saw, loved its idle burble. Gonna splash for the Husq battery but need to know which is tooled in more. Gone are the days when ye need to buy a battery for each & every tool. That was so scammy. Hopefully that made sense ?
