    MS 461 Engine stop issue

    Beyond cleaning it, which very well could do the trick. Just get a new one and replace. Pretty cheap and easy to replace part, so sense in fighting one that isn't working right.

    Stihl Parts, online sources?

    Actual Stihl dealers are not allowed to sell online. There are some third party sellers that stock some and can get anything you need that is available. I get Stihl parts from my makita/dolmar dealer. He is also an echo dealer and former jonsered dealer and works on all brands. Really knows...

    Saw Won’t Cut Straight

    Assuming the new bar and chain you put on are a correct match to the saw's setup... that leaves you with bar mount, drive sprocket, bearing, crank, and operator. Take the bar off, give it a healthy compressed air bath. Pull the chain guides, brake covers, clutch drum, and blow everything out...

    This is the Akimbo

    I hate to be the heart breaker, but I'm just going to assume that a ce certification cannot be given retroactively as it needs to be marked on the device. Kind of like the rope wrench, not all of them are ce approved, only the ones sold in the ce approved kits and are marked on them. Doesn't...

    MS 461 R or 661 RCM?

    661for certain. For the same price as a 461 that is a no brainer. On top of that a 661 would have an open stall in my stable. The 461 slots are filled with dolmar/makita 7900s and I wouldn't have it any other way.

    $800 to spend - tell me what to buy!

    I'm not brand prejudice. I have Stihls, huskies, and makitas(dolmars). I like them all, but the makitas are my number one go to saw unless I'm leaving the ground or tackling some really big wood. If I were getting just one big saw to do side work a used 6400, 6401, 6421 for the right price...

    Sthil 201t - keeps snapping

    Brand new saw, certainly the dealer's problem. I would insist they replace the entire assembly. There is no reason you should be investing any more of your time/money to fix what is obviously a factory defect. Factory defects happen, that is what the warranty is for.

    Overnight climb in the middle of nowhere...

    Well I wasn't able to make it to the campout so I can't report back on that. If we were to meet there to climb it would be off the books as far as their business is concerned. I would of course get their blessing and ask them to join first if they'd like. I've seen your videos so I can call...

    Rope Grabs Fall Protection Petzl - Camp - MSA

    I know I need at least one some day to go with my fall arrest harness. If I hadn't been off work injured for the past two + months I'd buy one now. Doesn't seem to be much interest as of now, but here in a few weeks once I recoup some lost time/funds I will revisit this thread and we can talk...

    Overnight climb in the middle of nowhere...

    Excellent video indeed. I need to get myself a portaledge as hammocks wreak havoc on upon my back. My friends at Earthjoy Tree Adventures are doing a satellite of the big canopy campout at their place in Germantown KY this Saturday. Its about hour twenty minutes from Cinci, so I'm hoping to...

    Sounds good. It'll be a while for me to be able to, but just as soon as I'm back on my feet I'll be getting in touch with y'all

    Ohio Recreational Tree Climbing - Meet, Greet & Climb?

    Nice! I'm in Columbus mending some broken bones at the moment, so no climbing for me for a few more weeks. Once I'm back on my feet I'd love to meet up for some climbs. I'm Loveland area based and there's plenty of good options out there, but have a couple friends that like to climb down just...

    TreeStuff used to be great!

    I guess I should count my blessings that I haven't had these problems that others have, and they are my main supplier. Being in Cincinnati, things tend to show up quickly from Indianapolis from any of the carriers. Only ever ordered one thing that said it was in stock, then wasn't when the...
