  1. As mad and frustrating this situation is for you, I can understand stihl's stance. I.e. You ship a new Saw to a dealer. That's it. What happens after is down to the dealer. Might be an idea to have a sit down and chat with your dealer about how to move forward on this. Sympathies with your situation, but remaining calm and professional will get you further than growling (at this point). Let us know how it pans out. Good luck [emoji106]
  2. [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23] This is stihl standard policy! They won't hand over a Saw without a full rev test. I've tried buying my saws without this test, but was told no warranty without it. That's every stihl Saw in the country. [emoji12][emoji106]

    Get a decent flat ladder, Or get a first cut system. I've been using ladders for years, but a first cut system is far superior. [emoji106]
  4. Or get into milling [emoji12][emoji106]
  5. Teach saws and climbing. [emoji106]
  6. Arguably one of the best films ever made: [emoji106][emoji106][emoji106]
  7. Ill ask a few mates, could be various issues.
  8. Take the spark plug out, Keep it attached to the wire. Place sparky bit between your lips and GENTLY pull the pull cord. You'll know if it's working. [emoji12][emoji106]

  10. Yeah I'm loving that mallet [emoji106][emoji106][emoji106]
  11. Fruit wood used green on an open fire with other dry hardwood can produce a very faint fragrance. I used to sell bay wood green to a Jamaican restaurant for BBQ smoking meats. Apparently in Jamaica they use pimento wood, and bay is the closest thing in the uk. I presume once fragrant wood has dried it has lost all essential oils/phenols/volatiles etc. [emoji106]
  12. Go slower. It's really hard wood.[emoji106]
