    New Oregon EXL Chain - game changer?

    Ok thanks for the feedback on here shame you didn't have them vids but thanks all the same.
  2. Yep it's pretty new Bill - I think you get a prompt 2 or 3 weeks down the line but each order you should be offered this. Yes I like those diamond stones they are superb.
  3. They've been here for a while now we need to somehow get all the same reviews for the same group of products which is more complex than it sounds. I think you get e-mailed a few days after buying to leave a review and if you do so you get £5 off your next order. We've also now got our contact details on every page as we'd rather not be one of those sites that buries these. We've been using whatsapp now as well for a long time and that has also been very useful in helping us give the best service. We are stretched every day now so the only downfall we are not as fast to get back to people as we'd like and we do have the odd message slip through the net.
  4. We have lots of these packages going mainly because we want to chew through the excess of Husky 13" chains we have. These will fit the following running .325 chain. 39, 40, 42, 44, 45, 49, 50, 51, 55 57, 133, 134, 142, 154, 234, 235 238, 240, 242, 246, 254, 257 261, 262, 339, 340, 345XP, 346XP 350, 351, 353, 355, 357, 359 360, 362XP, 455, 460 545, 550XP, 555XP, 560XP https://www.chainsawbars.co.uk/product-category/special-offers/ 2nd page here: https://www.chainsawbars.co.uk/product-category/special-offers/page/2/
  5. Granberg got too busy and were focusing on satisfying their order book - and that has not really changed for the last 4 years or so. The idea was great - but it's easy to have an idea and build a prototype.
  6. This never went into production. But we'll be doing something like this in a year or two with the Panther mills.

    Yep written an objection - you saying it needs to be done is good enough for me! Rob

    I found the Oregon depth gauges need a slight reduction out of the box so that the chain takes a larger bite. Not a lot - I just use a light touch with a diamond stone and precision grinder [not very scientific but it works]. Have always preferred the Stihl PMX chain myself so only used the Oregon chain once.
  11. Yep so my conclusion is - it's so obvious and we know this - then gov knows this. So if gov knows this and their policies are still nonsense - and they know they are nonsense - then what is their true agenda? I don't know the answer - but am still going to ask the question. And keep asking it.
  12. Yep it doesn't make sense at all - and why not make it easier to buy a cleaner fuel like Aspen if it's down to emissions - or is it all just down to CO2 and don't worry about us breathing in all the other stuff! Second - chainsaws can last a long time if you get attached to a certain model - so all the old ones will be spewing CO2 for a long time yet.
  13. E-mailed Jonsie today and apparently not! Or nothing reported. Once the stock he has is sold that's it - finito! So how come no one knows about this? Pretty weird...
  14. Apologies if this has already been posted - I did have a quick scan. I think Husky are going to be discontinuing all their larger saws starting with a 3! Due to emissions [that is a guess maybe someone can confirm]. I think Jonsie has the last lot of them and once they are gone... they will be gone. Pretty crazy!

    Yep I'm not sure why this is - also it seems the depth gauges need a tweak as well to get best use out of it. Post up a thread on how the two compare if you can.
