  1. Hi, just to clarify is this the oxdale head?...as people have mentioned KTM above. How much did you split with it before it went if you don’t mind me asking. I’ve got the same model, bought at the same time as yourself and have just experienced the same thing. I only do 5-7ton a year, so it’s done 15ton max. Cheers
  2. Can anyone advise please? I recently bought an HD filter as a spare for my 880(2007)which included a foam insert. The filter that came with the saw is green and doesn't have the foam insert(just fine mesh?). I took the green filter off to clean it and noticed quite a bit of fine dust had bypassed the fine filter. No holes in it etc. I don't use the saw a great deal at all and only for milling the odd bit. I replaced the Filter the new hd2 filter(with green foam insert)for quickness but it just wasn't running right as seemed not to be getting enough air and bogging down when cutting. Spoke to a local tree surgeon who said its a problem with the Stihls? I also read somewhere to take the box off and have the filter sitting on the outside uncovered? Any idea how best to proceed or suggestions on filters would be much appreciated. I could do without a blocked/nackered carb if poss. Sorry haven't got pics but found a couple on line and just hoped someone might know what I'm on about. Thankyou.
  3. That's bizarre. Mine are class 2s and 24m/s?! I don't intend catching my legs with the saw, but this one is a bit of a beast, thought id check and pick brains....Thanks.
  4. Hello, I saw all the detail on milling here and thought this would be the place to come for professional advice! I work in forestry and own a couple of acres of woodland in Northumberland. I'm very interested in milling a bit of timber with an ms880 and alaskan mill. I have a husky 346xpg for felling and class 2 trousers. Sorry if this answer is blindingly obvious to you all, but I can't seem to find any detail on the stihl website about chain speed for the 880. Will class 2 trousers suffice or will I need class3? Thanks very much in advance for any help...I'm dying to give the mill a go.....just don't want any accidents in the process. Kind regards
