Hello all so I recent got a STIHL hs45 gifted you me it’s hard to pull over and rattles/ blades don’t move upon inspection it needs a new clutch as it’s loose and the clutch drum bearing had popped so new bearing fitted and re assembled to test (new clutch isn’t on yet) I cleaned and re lubricated the gear bid as necessary, hedge cutter fired right up and reeves the blades move success; however I can hear the bearing whearling like if you spin a sake board wheel is this due to the loose clutch or to you think it’s a bad bearing ps the blades move fine
Hi All, I've been lurking here for a long time, reading interesting discussions. However, I've got a question I'd be interested in people's views on. I've got a couple of 346XP (newer version) chainsaws, one bought in 2007 and the other in 2009. Having recently bought a 536LiXP, I decided to sell the older 346XP to a friend who was just starting in forestry. But, 6 weeks later it stopped dead while he was cleaning up a tree stump, and the engine wouldn't turn over. My assumption was not enough mixing oil, but we took it apart last night and found the piston had broken (see attached images), with no sign of overheating damage to piston or cylinder. So... I'm refunding him his money, as I sold it thinking it was working but promised that if it died in the near future I'd pay him back. And now I'm not sure what to do from the following options: 1. Have a go at repairing it myself. Problem here is I don't really need it (which is why I'd sold it) - I have a working 346XP, a larger petrol saw too and am trying to use the electric one as much as possible. 2. Keep it for spares for my other 346XP. But then I may not use any of the parts for years... 3. Sell it as it is for someone to repair or use for parts. It was in working order in all other respects. 4. Sell parts from it on ebay. (more money that option 3, but a lot more work) Any thoughts greatly appreciated! Thanks, Mike
Just bought a brand new ms 880 from the local dealer and i havnt even worn it in yet and i am having problems with it. .it gets really really hot and its as if the chain is wanting to seize up etc. . . .and it is making a funny noise. . . (like a cluth grinding or something). . I have checked oiler and tension on chain etc. . . .. Anyone else had this problem before? And does anyone have a soloution. . . . Otherwise i think i will have to take it back. . . Lol
