    What to do with old bucket truck?

    I have a 2000 Freightliner with altec boom that has seen its better days. It still runs but is rusted real bad and the boom doesn't work from the bucket. I am afraid the only option is the scrap yard. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

    Difficulty starting chainsaw

    Here is my problem with my stihl ms 361. It starts fine when cold and when it is being used consistently. But when I use it then put it down for 10 minutes or so, I can't get it to start again. I also seem to have the same problem with my stihl pole saw. Any suggestions?
