    Brand new ms661 bog (Mtronic 3.0)

    I was having carb issues with my 661 seemed like the air filter was not making a good deal to the houseing. Solution: take some grease and goop up around the air filter where it seats against carb body. Apply liberally. It will help create a deal against dust & shit getting through the gap. No...

    Subbing out cleanup

    I bought a used boxer 320 from Dave @ top-notch 5 years ago (I think). Bought a bmg with it. Best move i ever made. Think all said it was 11k and they shipped it to me. Paid for itself in 2 months. For a 1 man operation it saved my back and all it ever asks for is grease and fuel

    throwing a large asah top over a maple

    Dan How far did that top travel? Was your notch made with 4 or 5 kerfs of the saw instead of a 2 cut notch? Seems to me the kerf cuts would make a taller hinge (more flex and hold) and not launch the top as well as a narrow narrow trad face cut? Maybe with the dead ash you needed it to hold...

    Ms 661 full wrap handle

    Yeah it's a bummer. Thought it would be awesome and I haven't really used it much at all. At the moment we are cutting some quality hardwood and stumps need to be low. It is a huge hindrance with the wrap catching in the snow etc to get that low stump. I think it works out west coast cos those...

    Tapping Maples

    Get some 5/16 taps. Not the old school 7/16. Be conservative. Only do 2 taps. You may only want to do 1. A big silver could put out a couple gallons a day for 1 tap. Which is a lot if you don't know what you're going to do with it.... I always have worried about tapping yard tree and...

    Best chainsaw pants

    The steins are the only pants I have worn that have made it over a year and are still in great shape! I've tried sips, pfanners, husky, forestwear, and others. I destroy pants. Hands down the most rugged and the strongest crotch to boot. Very well made. Bit heavy, hot in the summer, but...
