    husqvarna 562 xp 2014.

    I think it was released here in 2017, not sure about other parts of the world. Wouldn't be hard to make a 560 look like a 562. I would think a husky dealer should be able to confirm from the serial number.

    I think if you go against your wife you will have yourself "a domestic splitter"😜

    ms461 problem

    Call it a bodge, quick fix or whatever, but I had a leak from the gasket on a saw right under the exhaust. I cleaned the area with de-greaser and rubbed over with wet and dry and then used the black heatproof silicone glue that you fix fire rope into wood burner doors with, and ran a short bead over the leak. That was well over a year ago and is still holding fine.

    A mate of mine uses new jeeps for all his towing. He is a plant contractor, and lets say, "old school", regards rules and regs. He has had troopers, disco 2, 3 and 4s and has killed them all in one way or another. The only thing that has stood up to his testing are the jeeps. Might be worth a look. Mercedes engine and box, so good and strong. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2011-61-JEEP-GRAND-CHEROKEE-3-0-V6-CRD-LIMITED-5D-AUTO-237-BHP-DIESEL/202563745494?hash=item2f29bd76d6:g:pCoAAOSw5wFcFbQx:rk:6:pf:0

    Not far from me, someone is doing 3 year old, dry stored dumpy bags of beech for £40. Almost be worth buying the lot and selling on.

    Chain Saw for planking mill

    A makita 7900 will breeze through the stuff you want to mill. I have milled with mine on a 28" bar with no problems. If you were closer you could have had a go.

    Husky 560 chain brake problem

    Could drill a hole big enough for a self tapping screw and then pull out with pliers or similar.
  14. Unfortunately, it will also be an opportunity for unscrupulous types to kill off a lot of healthy ash trees claiming that they are dangerous/diseased.
