  1. Hello all, I'd like some advice please? I am considering offering a chain sharpening service in my local area, as part of a wider range of sharpening services to provide some sideline income. My plan was to buy the 'top of the range' Oregon 620-230 sharpening grinder which seems to cover all chain sizes, and has the addition of a hydraulic lock to remove the need to manually clamp the chain before each grind. My fears are that I'd be throwing £300 away on a machine that would barely see much action (other than the few chains I'd sharpen for home use). Am I right in thinking that you professional arborists all either sharpen your own chains by hand in the field, or own such a machine yourselves and will sharpen all your chains on a Sunday morning? A person advertising online was charging £7.50 per chain, which I thought seemed a bit steep, but I'd like to hear the members' opinions. If I didn't have a market within the arborist community, I don't think the few domestic users that have a saw for firewood/pruning etc would provide enough income to pay for the machine in any reasonable timescale, so it might be a dead duck of an idea. I was a member years ago so I know the good natured banter here and I'm awaiting some 'good ol' fashioned p-taking' and the like What do you people think? Also, if you have views on such machines vs hand sharpening I'd be willing to hear those too. I'm a bit worried that the hydraulic feature is jest another thing to go wrong, like floor jack, hydraulic presses etc, which invariably leak and lose pressure as the seals degrade. Over to the floor.....

  4. Welcome to our sponsored forum, where will dream up some interesting discussion ideas relating to the world of MultiOne as well as the use and selection of compact loaders in general. Have a question? Go ahead and post it, if we have the answer we will give it, if we don't we will admit it. We read and receive many comments and questions about which is the best small loader to buy and the simple answer to that one is... try them out and see which best suits your needs. BUT, the one thing that is obvious, there is confusion around what size and features to go for and unfortunately, some people opt for too small a machine (then you read forum posts about these amazing machines being of no use!). Selecting the correct loader, in terms of size and features can be a minefield. We hope we can give you some pointers and ideas to simplify this. Keep an eye on the forum, join in with discussion and please post your questions. Our small but growing sales team are all engineers, so try us with some techie questions too if you like.
