  1. I gave it a blast of compressed air when it started acting up on me, the gear moves freely as well. I'll strip it down and give it a clean when I get a chance, ????
  2. An update on my oiler issue, I purchased a H.O oiler on Ebay from America. I fitted it and test fired the 660, oiling perfectly, ?? Obviously the original oiler was faulty. I'll hang onto it and strip it down when I get time. If I can get it working it would do on a smaller bar. Thanks lads, ???
  3. Try to talk the client into removing them and planting something nice instead. Failing that get a hoist if there's access. Failing that you could use a SRS system with a big shot to get your line in. Use a B.A and then you'd don't have to climb up thought the dirty bastards. A ladder is an option but it would need to be tied off to the tree and you'd need to be tied in twice as per industry best practice. Add an extra 20% to the price because what ever way you look at it Lelandi are feckin horrible, ????????
  4. Thanks, I'll try to get another picture.
  5. Thanks, I'll try to get another picture.
  6. Outstanding, apologies for the picture quality.
  7. This might be a better picture, ??
  8. Another one for you gents, Thanks, ????
  9. Afternoon gentleman, anyone know what this is? Thanks, ????
  10. That's the job, like I always say 'house's are for women, a man needs a workshop with a bed, toilet, shower, wood stove and a small kitchen'. ?????
  11. Indeed, the older 261's were notorious for it. Dry needle bearings apparently, according to my local Stihl dealer they should be greased at the end of every Day. Easier with the out board clutch's on the 550/560/562. I grease all my needle bearings at the end of every job.
  12. Ah good man, plenty of time for rec climbing now so there is, ? Sycamore is nice to climb especially when it's mature. It's a great time for experimentation with new systems. She'll be glad of the heat from that timber if we get a cold snap. I'd be handing her the maul and I'd be telling her to get cracking with the splitting, ?????
  13. Any idea why they go lads? Dry needle bearing maybe?? Or are they just weak on the 562, ?
  14. Indeed, anyone who has a newish 390/395/3120 has the last of them.
