  1. I can have look to see if I have a spare one floating around as I 've had quite a few 020 supers
  2. Theyre heavy compared to a modern saw but being a 40cc saw will go through bigger stuff than most topping saws.
  3. Its probaly due to the gearing of these ones labour the engine alot more than the earlier ones. Fingers crossed mine doesnt run into these issues
  4. I run the cheap bump feed heads they seem to stop the cord breaking as quick as the stihl type one.
  5. If you want to run a sander you'll need around a 3hp 50l compressor. For blowing saws out any 2hp one will be fine.
  6. Have you thought about a second hand saw like a 357 or 346 or even a stihl 260 or 261 these are all great saws
  7. If your engine is damaged I have one that's missing the flywheel
  8. Is it possible to take the heated handles and gubbins off the 254 and put them on the 154 ?

  10. The stihl bg86 is a very powerful hand blower. I also invested in echo back pack blower they are heavier than the Stihl ones but very capable Sent from my LG-H850 using Tapatalk
  11. It would work and be a better saw Sent from my LG-H850 using Tapatalk
  12. The bulldog locks are easily broken off I honest prefere these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/162430862496 Sent from my LG-H850 using Tapatalk
  13. The new 145 head doesnt look too bad at all. Looks they've addressed the blade flexing issue but what have they taken away from the original 135 head. https://www.frjonesandson.co.uk/products-page/machines/brushcutters-strimmers-attachments/brushcutter-strimmer-attachments/stihl-hl-145-degrees-hedge-trimmer-attachment-20-cut-available-may-2017/?gclid=CjwKEAjw5_vHBRCBtt2NqqCDjiESJABD5rCJhfUN0woqHuQJoI1yKHcySBbOYbi750Fo5ulXMUPnbBoCkWTw_wcB Sent from my LG-H850 using Tapatalk
