  1. 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 ๐Ÿคฃ]
  2. 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... ๐Ÿ‘
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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 ๐Ÿ™ƒ
  6. Client says its an old MOD radio shack. Sort of thing that would get dropped by Chinook on a mountain. Full insulated, sound proof. He had it run in for an AirB&B but ended up drumming in it cuase his wife kicked him out into it....that''s all I know Khriss. Some clients are total yaps. He is a ret Royal Marine Sgt so I won't be calling him out ๐Ÿ˜
  7. Yup, standard section takedown with a sketchy drop zone, but how fking wierd is that right hander in the last photie... ๐Ÿ‘‰
  8. Zippy wee lift for access.
  9. It's still got a few dangles in it ๐Ÿ˜
  10. How are ye finding the batteries over trad 2 strokes? There's all this blah blah from Husq & Sthil, but on the ground, in the real world. It's the way to go in the long run but I will miss that pull cord & burble. How is the torque?
  11. A rare shot of my actual bathwater leaving the system. ๐Ÿ˜
  12. True enough....not dissing yer skills. Ye just can never tell from a one dimensional flat photo woody. Ever put a Dutchman in to turn it where ye want it to go? It's an art. Shrubbage aside. 'Hole in shrub border'
  13. Last photie. Looks a bit sketch to me woody. Is that bucket holding the whip? Nylon line...yup, lifted marine inboard engines out on that stuff but it can melt...why not fell it toward the open ground from the lateral?
