    I've used Oblan spinner pre filters for a long time, they are really good. http://www.ngclark.com.au/brands/oblan/externally-mounted-dynamic-air-precleaners-kc-series/ Donaldson make pretty good ones as well.

    Chippers sell for a lot more here than the US so I don't really know what it's worth, but 166 hours isn't much use. Depending how it was used of course. Dave/DMc has had a BC600XL for years and he has no complaints about it. He would probably know what a good one is worth. For what you need it should suit you. A Bandit would be better but pretty hard to find second hand, and usually high priced. I had to hire the later model the 700XL a few months ago, bigger infeed (8") but much the same. It went pretty good on 3-5" mostly dead and pretty hard stuff. But I'd rather have a Jeep at the moment.

    Yes Butch, but a lot of people don't know the British only started dumping their unwanted here after the War of Independence. A lot of crims but mostly petty, and political from Ireland. Lots of Irish made it to the US, didn't get treated too well there either but seemed to manage to survive alright.

    Steve Mack replied to a thread Motorcycling. in The Rec Room
    Mine saved a mates life once. In the good old days we didn't wear helmets much, and had really great tyres. He was a bit accident prone. That's how I met him, laying in the same place two nights running. On a trip once he wanted to lead so I gave him my helmet, night time and bit wet and he didn't last long. I came around a bend and he was down sliding head first into a steel guard barrier, I missed his bike but the guy behind went bush. Took a while to find him, still sitting on his bike in a 4ft canal. Cracked the helmet, and he was out for a bit but ok. He was still around a few years ago amazingly, one of the few that were.

    That's nothing compared to the boreal forest fires, and you don't have big trees there anyway.:P It is bad news though, that's going to have a lot of consequence.:(

    My first time was a 75' and it wasn't cool. Neither was the second time. Then I found an operator that knew tree work, that was cool. \\:D/ Only 90ft after that. Used them for years but the work changed and no call for them now. Safety "police" would have a fit if they saw what we did then, lots of things have changed in the last few years. And. Yep.

    That's a good link. I've been using Uvex for years, got the Acadia now and they're pretty good. And you don't need to cut fuel line for the nose. https://www.fullsource.com/uvex-s4161xp/

    Steve Mack replied to a thread What's on RIGHT NOW! in MBTV
    Yep, I can usually see my ex neighbour in most of them but not that one.:evil4: Finished The Walking Dead on Monday, I'm sure I saw her in the earlier seasons a heap of times. This last season I didn't like much so had a couple of episodes left. Fargo finished, it wasn't bad but wouldn't have been much without Mary Elizabeth. I see Preacher is back, not on here yet so might have to look for it. That was a good first season.

    That wouldn't have been hard, I downloaded it so just watched it on and off. End wasn't bad though. I wonder if he's seen this thread? Probably not, just looks at the work threads. Maybe someone should tell him about it.

    In the good old days we measured everything by beer. Go to the shops, a one can trip. Into town a six pack. Melbourne, 24. Brisbane 30. It was another life and world then. My truck license is .0 limit, so I haven't had a beer and driven anywhere since '95. It was really '85 when I stopped, but did call in to the pub sometimes, it was just a few minutes away but still not worth it. It'd be crazy to do it now with the traffic but people still do. Drink, don't drive. That's all there is to it.
