  1. So wasn’t sure where to put this..... Anyway after doing some repair work to my dads mower see here for info: I quite enjoyed doing it & think they are a decent mower and I was bored on marketplace ??? I happenEd to find one for sale locally..... a similar machine, I think a slightly newer one? Has a different handle and motor is badged Honda not husqvarna (May have been changed?) Anyway as I have more time and don need to get it back to mowing after a couple of days I decided can do a bit more with this one and will either sell it or keep it as a spare, might swap it with the old man and finish his properly who knows, anyway thought I would document it here if anyone was interested...
  2. hi my husky 372xp starts fine and idles but only seems to be running at half revs when pull the trigger ? have cleaned the carb put in new spark plug and fuel tank filter . any idea what to look at next ? any help would be greatfull
  3. Hello, I live in Phoenix, Arizona, where we have a sometimes severe monsoon season with high winds. I have a Palo Verde (Cercidium x 'Desert Museum') tree that's about 3 or 4 years old. We are meant to keep them light and trim to help them not get too caught in the wind, but I neglected to do it, and more than half the tree split and fell on the house (no damage thankfully) and had to be cut and removed. The remaining half of the tree looks compromised because its trunk section is missing about half its wood. However, in another big storm the other night I watched the tree in the wind and it took it well, no damage or further splitting. I want to strengthen the break, and am thinking of using some bolts drilled through the trunk to pull the crack closed, or at least prevent it from widening (criss crossed to prevent another split). I'm also thinking of reinforcing the section with missing wood by using a tense cable. Does anyone have a better idea, or any advice? Thanks a lot. This is a beautiful tree, producing thousands of bright yellow flowers in spring, and providing a lot of shade, without using a lot of water. Lots of pics before and after, including the yellow flowers, attached. Thanks!
  4. Good evening, I wondered if anybody knew where I can get a chipper drum shaft repaired for a Jo Beau M400. It's a used/second hand machine and I went to fit new blades and found a problem with the drum. After stripping down the machine found one bearing was seized and this has worn the shaft where the shaft runs through the bearing at the pulley end. Having bought the blades and spares from Global Recycling (Jo Beau dealer) I contacted them to get a quote to for a new drum, as wasn't sure if it could be repaired. I was quoted £773.14 + VAT + delivery for new drum (will need pair of new bearing too). They have advised me to try to get it repaired locally, I'm near Derby. Anyone know any good engineering firms that do these sort of repairs? Neil
  5. Hi, I've acquired a 550xp Husqvarna. Lovely saw, in fact it's dragging me away from the 357's I normally use. However the chain brake isn't working due to the damaged raised, threaded plug that sits in the chain brake recess acting as a locking hinge, . I've tried various repairs with different araldite type fillers to 'remake' the raised plug but they only work for a short period of time. I'm thinking the best way of doing it is to drill out the enlarged hole and put in a metal tube with a flange on the exhaust side and put a thread in for the chain brake screw. The problem is I don't have such a thing lying around my shed . Does anyone have such a thing, or direct me as to where I could find one or maybe someone could suggest a better/easier repair. All ideas are welcome. The first two photo's attached show the problem and the last what the actual part should look like. Many Thanks

    Been silly...

    So... I replaced the crankcase gasket on my 346xpg a wee while back - started on the third pull when I got it back together, it had only been lying in bits for a year.... 👊 However, I used the wrong bolts to attach the front handle at the bottom of the saw. They were too long so have worn two little holes through the crankcase, spilling chain oil everywhere. Not a great look down your legs... Does anyone know where I can get the two crankcase halves? My dealer quoted £190 new, I didn't like the sound of that! There's a half crankcase on eBay for £30 at the moment but I'm holding off to see if I can source the two together, even off the same saw. Thanks!

  11. So... I ran over my "relatively" new Stihl 362C a little while ago. Managed to avoid any serious damage as it went under the car rather than the wheel and the fore-grip acted as a nice sturdy rollcage. It has however buckled this handle and I need to replace it. -Could someone point me in the direction of a good parts supplier I could get a replacement from? -Are they interchangeable with older models? -How much of a ball ache is it to swap out? Cheers.
  12. Hi I have been given an old chainsaw to mess about with. Unfortunately it doesn't start ( probably why my boss gave it to me for free). The chainsaw is 8-10 years old and has been sitting around for a year or so now. I have checked the spark plug and there appears to be a spark there, fuel line seems to be in a reasonable order. Could somebody please let me know what could be up with it and if its worth spending a few quid on getting it working again. Thanks, Luke
