  1. I’m looking to replace my Sena unit which is no longer charging and I’m looking at the X-com ear defenders as a possible replacement. I don’t often use the intercom on the sena but when I did it was very useful. I was just wondering if the X-coms can connect to other intercoms, or should I just bugged the expense and get another sena?

    What's on your bench today?

    I am very tempted to do just that.

    Alright chaps. I’ve got a 576xp auto tune which is running on. I’m not sure what the problem. It’s seems to be fine when started from cold but as soon as you make a few cuts it seems to start running on a bit. Not stupidly fast but enough to be annoying and dangerous.

    I didn’t initial but I did check that when I put it all back together and it wouldn’t start right. I have head of this being an issue sometimes.

    Thanks. Taking the exhaust off is my next port of call.

    I took all the running gear off. Clutch, bearing, sprocket etc and still the same

    Any one got any bright ideas for me.... I’ve got a 560. Chain was running on and stalling when I applied the chain brake. My initial thought was clutch which I changed. Since I’ve done that I can’t really start the saw unless I hold the throttle in. And then it dies when I release the throttle then won’t start again at all. It made no difference when I removed all the running gear. TIA

    Rate My Hinge.

    Yeah I always try and chase the hinge off if safe to do so.

    Yeah I’d had a few split today. Not much of a problem when they are small but this one was a bit bigger so stuck the letter box in. I do for most Ash of any size now.

    Oregon Tool Belt, Harness and Holster Pouches

    I like the look of the belt without all the rubbish. Any one know if it’s available on its own. I use a single pouch with log tongs and tape. And occasionally an ochsenkopf wedge pouch which comfortably holds three or four plastic wedges.

    362cm vs 562

    Would anyone be happy running a 20" bar on a 562, I'm considering one or maybe I should wait for a 572, although I have heard that they are blowing crank seals.
