  1. i think the problem was new top end on a high hours bottom end caused the second issue, do you think husqvarna are going to give out pretty much a brand new saw when the one purchased is worn out before the warranty has expired?? the saws are great just the build quality is still questionable
  2. I had same problems on a 560 ended up being a whole new pot piston carb luckily was covered under warranty few months later new crank seals then lasted a month then went in the bin!!
  3. Ive split one of these husqvarna axes in half from just banging wedges(plastic) as the poll and axe are held together by some dubious fixing which is cleverly hidden by the rest of the handle. Great weight and size though
  4. check the fitment of the pipe which oils the bar where it connects to the pump, found a split in it causing problems , ive had a few fail here over the years and also the brass filter in the the tank once was clogged up with fine gunk
  5. Try Stuart ford fencing 01435 865170 based in heathfield sussex
  6. try, aworth surveys they travel/work all over uk

  14. try tim joslin just outside battle 07855188430
  15. Get as much as you can!! always on tonnage/volume/meter/acre rate. If felling for a machine its day rate. Unfortunately your only worth what your skill/production rate is and whoever is paying you will always try to lower it somehow so dont give them an excuse to!! You can earn a decent living at it you just have to do the hours and enjoy it!!
  16. try bob at timberline Timberline Decorative and Specialist Hardwoods | Welcome | Tonewoods | Woodturning
  18. looks like a huztl aftermarket saw or a ebay chinese complete copy you can buy for 200 and assemble yourself!!
  19. if your using it only few times a week get a dolmar/makita 6100 it will do exactly what you want and a bit more. its not as nimble in the hand as a husky/stihl but is an excellent saw for a lot less outlay
