There's a tree at my grandmother's that was dropping fruit lately. I'll have to see if it has any more. I don't really have much experience shipping, but given my own received packages I think it involves a ziplock bag full of vermiculite for the recalcitrant seeds, right?


I'm going to  do some experiment with them and graft some marang seedlings on them. They are supposed to handle poor soil better than marang, so lets try and see.

Moist vermiculite or peat moss in zip lock bag, Let me know about your offer.

Thanks


They're very vigorous and can handle poor soil very well.

I checked my grandmother's tree, but couldn't find any fruit. I think we just missed the season. My apologies.


Thanks for your input.

I will try to contact Mr Brunner.

My two platonia insignis seedlings. I'm amazed how tough they are compared to other tropical trees.




One of the platonia insignis seedlings got eaten by a feral cat  :'(. Yes, our feral cats are vegetarian and they love young plant shoots. The good news, the seedling started to regrow again.

The Egyptian agriculture department advises to spray potassium Silicate and Amino Acids to reduce the heat damage. Unfortunately i did not find potassium Silicate in here but, I have a silicone based surfactant which should be good source of silica too.

Sorry to revive this old topic, Mohd.  But, did you grow this?

No

Simon

This does not look like Mulgova Mango that we have at the local Indian Store. All the Mulgova Mango I have seen in here are green (even when they are ripe) and more roundish than the one you have.

Here is a picture

OK. The other thing you want to inquire about is whether or not replacement parts are easily obtained. Things like bearings, belts, and screens tend to go bad with use. I just broke the welded screen on my mackissic over the weekend but had no issue finding a replacement online.

Thanks Jeff.

I'm not sure if the the store worker is right about the weight of the Machine. Anyway, The machine is currently out of stock and a new stock should be arriving very soon. Once I get it I will post a picture.

BTW, Happy Independence day.  8)

Bearing and belts should be easily obtainable. Honda GX390 spare parts should be available too because the engine is also used in other applications like Generators, water pumps etc. I will try to find the official dealer of Honda motors in Dubai.

I will Talk to the store worker about the other parts.

Thanks again for your help.

11 HP is equivalent to 8 KW.
How many KW is your motor?

I don't have the wood shredder yet. It should be 11.7hp = 8.7KW

Thanks.

That looks like another knock off of the Mighty Mac SC800. However, if the thing weighs 550 pounds, it's probably a really nice one. Mine probably weight 150 pounds max. I'd probably buy it. Looks decent.

I think that's the same motor on my $4k merry mac "commercial" chipper. It was an upgrade from the briggs & strat. If so, then that's a nice motor.

I think the chinese do strap high quality American / Japanese motors to their knock off chippers. I had a Chinese knockoff / copy of a Mighty Mac with a briggs & strat motor (I actually met the guy who shipped the original unit to China to have them replicate it --- he eventually got banned from dealing Mackissic :D).

The motor never gave issues (in fact, when I sold it, I priced it solely on the motor), but the chipper broke down every chance it got. I'm pretty handy with wrenches (was a Chevy mechanic way back in the day), so I was usually able to fix. However, having to fix it vs use it every other weekend got to be a drag... that's when I upgraded to what I have now.

So, I would be really skeptical of a chinese made chipper. Even though the motor is awesome, there's no guarantee that your chipper will last. I imagine there might be a good / high quality chinese chipper manufacturer out there, but I've personally never seen one. Check to see if the chipper replacement parts are readily obtainable. You shouldn't have to worry about fixing the motor much. Those things are bullet proof.


Thank you very much for your input.

Here is the picture.  This is the electrical version. The petrol wood shredder should come with 11.7hp Honda and weight around 240KG (about 550 LBS).





The price is 1100 USD.

Thanks Jeff.

Regarding the Trapp chippers in Brazil, the cheaper ones are underpowered and can't do more than 2".  There are commercial Trapp's that are much better, but they come at a price.

Thanks man.

I have seen a large trapp wood shredder for 2.5k USD but works on electric.

It's not just the engine. How are the chips being made? This question is a hardy perennial here but I think hammer action chippers are supposed to be the most reliable.

Honda engines are supposed to the best. Won't you find more service for a Honda where you are, rather than a Briggs Stratton? I bought a Brigg Stratton lawnmower not long ago but I am in USA where Briggs is very common.

For a new Honda small engine cast in China. Run it a few hours then dump out the oil and replace with new oil. Get straight 30 weight oil for your climate. 30 weight motor oil. Not 30 weight gear oil.


I went yesterday to the store, He gave me a link to a Chinese electric shredder. He told me the body design is the same but the petrol version comes with honda and it is little bit more expensive.

Both honda and Briggs-Stratton spare part should be available in here. In fact, a few months ago I changed the the blade of my Briggs-Stratton Lawn mower.


Don't worry about the oil because I change my car engine oil by myself. The Manual recommend 10W-40.

Hey all,

I'm here in Miami in the middle of mango season and after tasting my first Edward and E-4, I can already feel an obsession brewing.

Right now I have only baby trees of Edward, Angie, Orange Sherbet, and Fruit Punch. I don't have a ton of room left so I've got to be wise about any more additions. I understand SweetTart and Lemon Zest are forum favorites so I'm gonna have to give those a try. Any other favorites you think I should consider?

Also, this is a long shot but I love the flavor of rose: Rose water, Brewster lychee, rose apple - all of it. Are there any mangoes that have a hint of rose in the flavor profile?

Thanks for reading

Gulab-jamun mango is supposed to have a rose water flavor.

Welcome to TFF

A few days ago, I went to some local hardware stores looking for wood chipper. I Went to 20 stores but I only found it in one store and they are selling multiple types (engine); Electric, diesel and Petrol. The diesel wood chipper is completely made in China (engine and body), the Petrol wood chipper comes with Honda GX390 11.7HP but the body is made in china. The Electric one is made in Brazil by trapp and it is the cheapest.

So my question is, How good is Honda GX390 engine ?. I know they are supposed to be better than Briggs and Stratton but I would love to hear more opinions.

Thanks

Wonderful congratulation on your success.

One of my favorites. Wait for ripe when fruit is not hard to get Full flavor

Hi Wonderfruit,

Could you please tell me, how good is Mammea Americana compared to Sansapote and Olosapo ?.

Thanks

Awesome.  Mine are hopeless.  First, one sprouted, but then it died out.


I am curious if there's a nursery in Southern California that sells ilama in a 3-7 gal pot.

Too much GA or water will easily kill Ilama seedling.

I killed about 10 seedlings before i got it right.  ::)
