  1. Yea 100%. This was similarly done with Japanese larch in the past too. Was in a 30 year old stand today. The Sitka spruce has completely outcompeted the larch and most of the larch were standing deadwood. If the stand were 15 years old, the larch would be standing a meter or so taller than the spruce.
  2. Cheers for the help guys. Looks like I'll be going for the pine 👍
  3. Its north costal lodgepole so it shouldn't be too knotty

  8. Hi, I need some help fixing my husqvarna 550xp. It starts for a few seconds and then cuts out. I tore it down a bit and the plastic film behind the sprial diaphragm is ripped so I'm assuming that to be the problem. It's a walbro at-12 carb and I cant seem to find the walbro carb kit for the saw. Can anybody tell me what carb kit to get? I'm in Ireland by the way. Thanks in advance.

    Hilti dsh 700

    Hello, I'm aware this is a concrete saw but I didn't know which forum to write into. I recently acquired a hilti dsh 700 and the fuel hoses are cracked and worn. I can't find any information online about the inner and outer diameters of the fuel hose. If anyone can help me, it would be much appreciated

    Hello, i have a jonsered 930 that needs a new pot and piston. Does anyone know where id source one? Also, does this saw have any similarities with husqvarna? As it needs a new clutch cover.

    Stihl 028

    Both sides gone I'm afraid. Did a bit of reading and I read a forum piece that you can modify a 036 exhaust in some way? Don't know how true this is as I could only find it in one place.

    Looking for a good qualify cylinder and piston for my 262xp. Don't want to pay OEM money. Any suggestions on good quality alternatives?
