  1. Hello so I have a STIHL blower bg56/86 not sure, so I tried to pull it over and got one rotation out of it then the pull cord snapped I’ve had it in bits and the crank and everything looks good I’ve got the exhaust off and the carb off and it still won’t pull over but with out the spark plug in it pulls over fine no odd noises or anything I’m stumped as the cylinder looks clean, it feels like it has way too much compression and just snappes cords I’m stumped please help
  2. Hi to all.. my chainsaw starts and runs fine, but only with the exhaust and air filter removed. When I fit the exhaust, it won't run or start. The exhaust has been cleaned and is not blocked. Can anyone give me some advice. Thanks
  3. Hi All, my Stihl FS460 clutch housing cracked at the shaft sleeve last week, after 2 years of moderate use. Not impressed, anyway, sent for a new part and replaced, but now the machine won't run. Dies on the least bit of throttle, will run if I keep pumping the bulb. Tried new petrol mix, Aspen, no difference. I'm wondering if I broke or dislodged something while doing the clutch housing replacement...but I'm gentle, and don't think I did. What are the chances of a carb problem appearing the same day, essentially, as the clutch housing breaking? Could there be a connection? Any thoughts?
  4. I'm fairly new to tree climbing and I have a mentor who has taught me SRT on a hitch climber pulley with a hitch and rope wrench, using canopy and base anchors. I've been practicing limbwalks on my own and have encountered debilitating resistance from the rope wrench when trying to feed slack. Every couple steps I take I have to use two hands to collapse the wrench on top of the hitch to allow myself another few inches of slack. Pulling slack back in is especially difficult. On straight vertical descents, with a little bounce to get the momentum going, the rope flows through the wrench as I would expect it to. The rope wrench I have is the newest edition which Ive been told has a larger diameter slick pin than the old edition and this leaves a smaller space for the rope to pass through. My climbing line is a 12mm Kernmaster and I weigh 135 lbs/61 kilos. The feedback I have got from another forum suggests trying a thinner diameter rope, something in the 11-11.6mm range. This is helpful, but don't plan to buy a completely new rope. Others say to try out the Hitchhiker. My mentor said to ask on forums for an older model of the rope wrench with the thinner slick pin. I wanted to gather some input from ArbTalk and ask if anyone does have an older rope wrench or hitchhiker they are willing to sell or trade?
  5. Hi lads, Wondering if you could shed a little light on my problem. I've got a entec chipper with a petrol Kohler 22hp a think, it starts up, runs fine for a few seconds buts the revs lower and sometimes cuts out. I've had the carb cleaned in a proper tank and the in line fuel filter is clean, just not sure what else to check? Any help greatly appreciated Cheers Andrew
  6. Hi, Just a quick one. As the title says I'm having trouble starting the saw, this hasn't happened in the past. Every time I pull the starer cord the de-comp valve pops out just under a third of the way through the pull then making it go really stiff and not pull any further. any advice? Thanks alot Jack
  7. Hello. I would appreciate any advice here as i dont know who to ask other than my local authority, who i suspect will not give me unbiased advice in this instance. Three weeks ago, i set about building a zip line in the garden for the kids. They had pestered me to do it since i suggested it two years ago so this year i bit the bullet I sourced all the stuff within a week and got it erected over a weekend. The launch platform is the balcony of a tree house i built for them 5 years ago. This tree house is on 8" stilts and is not connected to the tree it sits beneath in any way. The tree is a large oak and is outside of my garden on the boundary of a new development which used to be a field. It is situated on a swathe of rough ground which also serves as a public footpath. This ground still belongs to the developers at the moment, and last year i had to call them out after a very large limb fell off outside my back gate. After some tooing and froing they sent a team of arbourists to tidy up and pruned the tree at the same time. I love this tree My wife hates is because she cant sunbath after 4pm but that's life lol I even put a large double glazed window in the roof of the treehouse so the kids can watch the squirrels. Anyway - back to the zipline... I used an 8mm steel cable secured at the bottom end of the ride to an 8" pole i sunk in the ground. At the top end (the treehouse balcony) i secured it to an identical pole, the bottom of which is secured to the treehouse balcony and the top of which is screwed to a large limb of the tree. I did not remove any bark to do this. The cable is fixed maybe two thirds the way up this pole. I naturally did not want to fix the line directly to the tree, although all the websites i researched for the project said to do exactly that. I did not want to harm the tree, or indeed place 100% of the stress on the limb, so the pole was the best option. I finished building this about a week ago, and the kids love it. I know there is a preservation order on this tree because i checked when the development was approved on the field behind, as i did not want them turning up one day with their chainsaws. Like i say, i do love the tree. This swathe of land is now in the process of being handed back to the local authority, who will then be responsible for it. After speaking to a friend, i am now worried that they could get funny about me securing this post to the limb, i don't know how strict the law is/can be. The cable is not taut, there is a fair bit of slack, and the tension is shared between the tree and the treehouse. It would be very difficult for me to secure this high enough by any other means. I could, i suppose, take the screws out and use webbing straps somehow, but i dont know how anal these council bods can be. I have uploaded some pictures here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/ Any advice would be much appreciated regarding just how strict a preservation order is concerning oaks, and if you think i have a viable standpoint/argument should the need arise. If i have to take all this down the kids are gonna brain me Thanks in advance.
