Re: Husqvarna 254xp your thoughts?

I recently put a new piston and ring on my 254xp. So long as you take it steady, it's an easy job. I used a Mako kit which seems to have a reasonable rep on the other saw forum. OEM is silly money, as is a cylinder.
Baby I was born to bun.

Your. Your views/opinions would be very welcome thanks
best mid range saw ever built imo
