    Cheers for the info Mr spud. Have got the wee plastic things on order. The was wear on the engaging faces.. Rounded as opposed to nice and sharp like on a new one I looked at. Thanks again for the help.[emoji106] Sent from my A0001 using Arbtalk mobile app
  3. Husky 550 no fast idle

  4. Husky 550 no fast idle

    Evening.. Ive 550xp. It runs well and I cant fault it. But do love my 254 more. The 550 has a issue..I can use the full choke setting. No problems. When it comes to "push up then click down for a bit of high idle" it does not engage. Also its need for the hot start procedure. I can "unprofessionaly'" feather the throttle and yoyo start it. Not the best way if the boss is mooching about. Do any of you gurus have any experience with this.. Ive stripped it. Cleaned and oiled the working parts. Ordered a new red switch thingy. Any help would be great. Cheers Sent from my A0001 using Arbtalk mobile app
  5. Newbie with boggy unmanaged mostly broadleaf woodland...

    Make staples out of thin rebar To tie the courses in. Drive the odd one diagonally to help tie in as well. Have a decent lean back to reinforce the slope (a batter). Go heavy with the cement mix as water will leach it out of have active flow. If laying in water look for a compound called seeker. Its a anti wash out. I done miles of this underwater on diving projects before falling back into tree work. Sent from my A0001 using Arbtalk mobile app

    Firm I'm with has got two of these. Pretty impressed by them. The stop bar seems way to slack a slightest tap shuts off the infeed. Is there any way to beef it slightly. Obviously not to a point of not working but a happy medium? Thanks in advance. Sent from my A0001 using Arbtalk mobile app
