    Stihl 038 AV Super

    Brilliant. Cheers Gary. Were the pro saws? Or farm saws
  3. Chaps. I’m looking to buy an 038av super. Can anyone tell me about these machines. I don’t know too much about them but I believe they are good machines. Were they big farm saws? Or saws for professional use? Any help would be greatly appreciated
  4. Evening. I have recently acquired a stihl 028 super. Google says the correct mix is 50:01. Is this correct? If so would aspen 2 be ok to use in this machine?

    cleaning a chainsaw

    Wouldn't really recommend pressure washing it as like someone else said it could drive water into electrical components. Brake cleaner too can quickly deteriorate plastic and rubber hoses. I generally keep mine clean and give it a good clean with hot soapy water once a week and rise with clean water. Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk

    Long reach chainsaw

    I've been thinking about the echo multi tool system as there is and extension available for that too. I've not really seen any reviews on it though Sent from my iPhone using Arbtalk
