Battery powered rechargable chainsaws have come of age.
At Wattle&Wire, we have recently aquired the first of our battery powered chainsaws to replace the old oil burners.
This new professional range of saws is well suited to Wattle&Wire's needs because we deal in small diameter trees and the new Husqvarna 536LiXP is performing extremely well. Batteries are charged in the workshop with the facility to charge from the vehicle battery in around forty minutes.
No more nasty fumes, no more vibration, no more mixing fuel, and vastly reduced noise levels with less weight; it's a win all round.
Great for the environment and operator safety, it makes a day harvesting even more pleasurable.

The Beachmaster® Sand Fence system has a new support system.
The 5.0mm - 2.0 tonne load wire has been replaced with a 13.0mm 1-19, 12.0 tonne cable top and bottom.
The fence ligatures no longer carry the working loads which are now carried entirely by the support cable and transfered to the end assemblies through fully adjustable 24mm eye bolts.
Post spacings remain at 2.5m with strainer posts and stay posts increased to 200mm diameter and intermediate post increased to 150 - 200mm diameter.
Saddles with a large cable to saddle surface area and a PVC gasket fix the cable to the posts, ensuring any bending moment is distributed over a large area of cable.
This change will eliminate ligature failure at the fixing points caused by continuous working at the fastener without compromising the fences effectiveness, functionality.or aesthetic.
A new clipping system has greatly reduced installation time, critical when working between tides.
A fantastic new natural play ground constructed by the East Gippsland Council uses Wattle and Wire Split Pale Fence to great effect. The 1.2m high fence was specially made to blend with the natural and unique feel of the playground while providing security for the users.
