    Husqvarna 50 special?

    Clean the aluminium transfer off it with some acid before you say it's rough, that should clean up a lot better with some 240 and light oil after the transfer is dissolved.

    Spying on subcontractors

    I thought there was only the one Stubby, are the others in alternate realities ?

    572 husky or 500i stihl

    I thought it would depend on how heavy it's being leaned on, unless the electronics are somehow governing the revs

    What saws you got ?

    Where from.? That's cheaper than a 135

    What to do with a broken 346xp?

    About £100 I bet. It will be going to Dyson probably.

    New barrel and piston for Husky 365

    I think it's tosh as well if it's any consolation

    Need advice, want to upgrade my saw.

    I read somewhere it's best to keep 6 saws in case 5 break down, sounds reasonable to me.

    So you can look at the battery as a very expensive fuel can that takes a long time to fill with fuel which is cheap but not available everywhere. Depending on the charger it can take between 45 minutes and 3 hours to charge to 100% so you need the AL300 charger at £60 as well so for 2 batteries and a charger you are in for about £300 plus the saw which is "equivalent to a 30cc saw" it's not sounding very tempting yet.

    How does this saw try to find lost power does it have artificial intelligence ? I've upped the oil in saws to first run them after repair and all I find is they smoke and blow some oil out of the exhaust and sometimes oil the plug up.

    So you could be looking at chainsaws with pedal assist Brilliant idea. When battery prices come down and technology gets good enough they will be a better proposition, storage needs to go up and charging times need to come down before they can replace just slopping another pint of fuel in and away you go again. I know the price of fuel is high compared to electricity to charge a battery but you don't need to buy £120 of fuel at one go and it's there straight away not in 30 or 40 minutes or whatever time an AP200 takes to charge.
