Updated clarkforest.com

It's a few years now since our website went live, so we thought it was about time we gave it a wee upgrade - it's also 90 years this year since our parent company, Wm Clark and Son, started, so it's a bit of a celebratory year for us all!

The main change you will notice is in the colour scheme - bit brighter, bit jazzier than the previous olive green and we've added some new functions for customers, such as, being able to view previous orders and re-order products more easily. We're also asking if you could update your information, to make sure that any marketing we do is specific for you and you don't end up with the wrong info!

So, enjoy the changes and we look forward to being of service to you again, sometime soon!


 

 

Welcome to February!

Chilly out isn't it? With the UK still in the grips of the winter's low temperature this month's newsletter has a definite 'keeping warm' theme to it.

First up a look into keeping warm when working outside in the winter months, with research and technical info from our Swedish friends at Woolpower

Tips to stay warm when working outside in winter

A few new bits and bobs that have arrived in this month:

Boot Dryers - 28.00 + VAT (33.60)

Boot Dryers and Warmers
Boot dryers plug into either your mains or car charger socket and gently warm and dry out cold or wet boots, say goodbye to soggy, wet feet.

How's the pavements round your way at the moment? Slippy and covered in ice by any chance? Thought so, it's the same here, so rather than moan at the council for their shoddy gritting, have a look at these universal boot grips to give extra grip when walking on ice or snow.

Boot Grips - 13.50 + VAT (16.20)

LogJack

LogJack - 98.00 + VAT (117.60)

Not relating to the cold weather so much, but last month saw the long awaited launch of our all new LogJack tool, for lifting logs, firewood and timber off the ground for chainsaw cross cutting. The LogJack's simple and efficient method grabs and lifts the log up off the ground in one simple motion - no more bending down, no more bad backs. With the log now firmly supported in the air, your chainsaw's chain is away from the ground, keeping the cutters clear of dirt, stones and other debris that can blunt a chain in seconds.

5 Hot Deals for February:

Bio Chainsaw Oil - 46.20 (inc VAT) for 25 Litres
The UK's lowest price for high quality, eco friendly bio chain oil.

Rain proof storm jackets - 30.00 (inc VAT)

Oregon Chainsaw Helmets, Visor & Ear Muff Combo Sets - 19.75 (VAT Exempt)

Windsor Chainsaw Braces (universal clip-on type) - 11.94 inc VAT
35% cheaper than the equivalent Oregon braces, strictly while stocks last.
