Re: Druid’s New Duck – ’99 Hydrema-Wiemar M1500

Just checked my battery circular saw. No load speed 4600RPM. This of course means bugger all as soon as it's under load it'll slow considerably.

The discontinued Erbauer multipurpose blade in it...

Re: Druid’s New Duck – ’99 Hydrema-Wiemar M1500

Just check that the rated speed of the balde is not exc eeded by your machine.

The evoloution saws apparently run a bit slower, but the non genuine blades are rated for faster speeds than the...

Re: Druid’s New Duck – ’99 Hydrema-Wiemar M1500

Haha, I just got told we were no longer required by our last regular garden job this very morning!

This weeks job is to re-clad a farm barn. I guess I'm no longer a gardener :o

Re: Druid’s New Duck – ’99 Hydrema-Wiemar M1500

It's technically an Evoloution 'multipurpose' type, but there's not a lot of difference in them. The technology is in the blade- rake angles, carbide grade etc. Have to say, I find the Evoloution...

Re: Druid’s New Duck – ’99 Hydrema-Wiemar M1500

If it jams it jams :confused: Modify your technique. Carbide doesn't like to be tickled, and will usually give you fair warning before it jams if the feed pressure is a touch much. I never have any...

Re: Druid’s New Duck – ’99 Hydrema-Wiemar M1500

Modern blades in my experience only start to produce hot shards when they are wearing out. Otherwise the TCT teeth should produce fairly cold chips. Things like triple chip design help.

Druid, you're in the stone ages with that abrasive disc ;) Get yourself a carbide saw blade for it.

Re: - it's started BTLs

It's not forestry. Forestry is the growing and cutting of trees to produce timber.

Druid is correct IMHO, it's highway maintenance.

Re: So - an opinion - tiltys and prices !

Fair enough. The thread moved a bit quick for me to keep up! Nice to see some life in the forum for a bit :)

Re: So - an opinion - tiltys and prices !

If I was a full time owner op, I think I'd go the full route and just hope I didn't go bust! As it would make such a difference to my day and happiness. I cringe when I...

Re: So - an opinion - tiltys and prices !

If theyre going to sell as a cheapy new basic unit, I'd say they'd have a reasonable resdual value too. If a top spec tilty is worth say 60% of new after two years, so should a basic one be.

They...

Re: Druid’s New Duck – ’99 Hydrema-Wiemar M1500

Yeah, being comfortable is paramount. I almost always rest or hold the torch using my left hand and just have the mask set so I nod and it drops. If in the workshop I have very good lighting so you...

Re: Druid’s New Duck – ’99 Hydrema-Wiemar M1500

They're bloody good trucks, but after mine got pinched I replaced it with a common rail 57 plate ranger. I couldn't go back, there's half as much more power again and similar fuel economy.
