    Stihl 170 v 181

    I’ve had a 135 for 2 years now, only used for firewood but has probably cut 35-40 ton in its time with no issues at all.
  2. Don’t think we are going to get much here in North Yorkshire but the air has a strange feeling.

    ArbDogs? Pics!

    My youngest decided the drainage ditch (no water) was a good place for a run, unfortunately the bottom 3ft is vertical so he couldn’t get out so I had to go ankle deep in mud.
  4. I've got a fold up ramp but we never used it as the old dog wouldn't entertain it.
  5. Should the Arbtalk app still work? All I get is a lot of blankness

  9. It's just a firewood saw, I get Arb waste & cut/split enough for a neighbour & myself. Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk
  10. Just out of interest what saw would you guys recommend for an upgrade from the 135? I'm not really needing to but its always nice to keep an eye out for a bargain. Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk
  11. Ive had mine 18 months & have only used mine for firewood but I've had no issues at all with the starting/running, nothing has come loose & as for tool less chain tensioner I'm guessing they changed that as it's a screw on the side of the brake cover. Not a pro at all but does what I need at an affordable price. Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk
  12. Cheers guys I got given 2 chains so thought for the price of a bar I might as well make use of them but it sounds like I should stick with the 14" [emoji106][emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk

  14. Hi guys I recently bought a 16" bar & chain from chainsdirect but the chain doesn't fit, chainsdirect dont understand as they have sold loads of 16" bars for this saw. As you can see the 16" Oregon bar is fatter than the 14" Husqvarna, I would have thought they would have taken this in to account when they spec what chain is needed but could this be the issue?

  15. Made the most of the cooler weather the other day Now I've just about runout of wood to cut/split. Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk
