What ground saw is best these days?

Recommended Posts

Maybe your right but about four different Husky mechanics have told me that my mix was way to light. when my saws went for repair I was told my mix is way to light, and a bit of metal was found stuck above the spark plug that came of the engine on my ms 181, and I was told that's because my mix was way to light. I was told 100 ml to 5 litres by all of them ! I always used 50:1 xp oil in all my gear.

More likely an air leak somewhere causing it to run lean .......

I bought a new 560 xp lately and I was told by the husky mechanic that set it up to put 40:1 into it. When I done all my chainsaw courses I was told to use 50:1 because that's what the carb is set for but why do husky specialists turn around and say 40:1 it's frustrating!

These husky dealers are around over 30 years

Why the hell did you dredge up a six month old thread just to write that?

 

Doobin, I was interested in the thread title "What ground saw is best these days?" ...because I'm looking at getting a ground saw.

 

I didn't expect to be reading comments referring to the abuse of women, and I won't be going into any "why the hell" details.

Dont use supermarket pump fuel . It possibly contains more ethanol . Ethanol will make the saw run lean and too hot . Try to find pump fuel with little or no ethanol .
