  1. I saw your site referenced on the moneysavingexpert site, but I'm not an arborist, so forgive me if I'm trespassing here. I have a question about trees on Crown Land. A very small piece of land - less than 20m square probably - sits next to my house and has five trees on, a couple of which are taller than my house. I understand that the land used to belong to the house builders, but they went into liquidation and so automatically that land is transferred to the Crown. A few years ago I did enquire about purchasing the land, but it was too expensive. I believe, though unsure, I have the right to maintain the trees, but it's unfortunately out of my budget to arrange for the trees to be lopped and the Crown seemingly have no responsibilities. The local council won't help. Do I just have to make sure I have adequate insurance in case the trees damage my property, either with their roots (they are only around 8 metres from the house wall) or because they fall in a storm? I'd appreciate any advice. Thank you.
  2. Hi all, Recently bought a used timberwolf 125 (2005) to get me going as a new start up. My bottom infeed roller has stopped, will move by hand and the top one still works fine. I'm thinking something to do with the spline? Are there any mechanics local to the Birmingham/ West mids area people can recommend? I would have a go myself but wouldn't know where to begin with it. Thanks in advance
  3. After taking almost ½ tonne of batteries to the recycle's the other day I am looking to find a better situation of buying and replacing, my problem is some of our machinery is only used occasionally, be it bike, excavator, saw mill, tractor, car, mower etc. I have optima battery that has lasted better than most but there is only a limited range and similar with varley and Odyssey race/rally style batteries, I am aware that start up run every week or 2 is ideal and or keep on shelf with regular charging management, possible solar charging in situ, I have found most seem to last long enough to get past guarantee date then expire, gasp. My supplier yesterday said they are only built now to be regularly used and not for occasional use. Any help or suggestions appreciated.
  4. Hi guys! The rim sprocket on my 560 is totally fooked, and I am seriously struggling to find replacement sprockets online! Could somebody point me in the right direction? J
  5. Hi all, I've just finished and released a new 131-page eBook covering chainsaw maintenance; written specifically for the UK market it not only covers various types of machine but also the underpinning knowledge about maintenance, legislation and H&S. It should be ideal for those entering the industry or those about to take their Level 2 Award in chainsaw maintenance. You can get your copy at Free Book Cheers, Dave.
  6. I've got a greenmech 150/25 with the shredder on the side. I'm Pretty sure I've found all the other grease points but how do you grease the top roller bearing. I can't even see the bearing. It appears that the bearing should be under the dash panel, I've undone the dash and pulled it back but the bearing doesn't seem to be where I was expecting to see it? Anyone got experience with this machine?

Regards Dan
