    RE: Which option to choose with splitter repair?

I have a lot of old equipment,my one loader is from 1958 my family had owned it since 83 and have never had a ram issue,some of the rams are exposed no matter how you leave it.Water should not hurt the ram,they are chromed like a bumper,which don't rust...

    The hated homelite and the 80 yr old grandma.

    Thats what you get for sending a lady to do a mans job. I can't believe you would send a lady to buy your saw.That almost qualifies for Man card removal

    The hated homelite and the 80 yr old grandma.

    When i was growing up the lodge we lived in was heated by wood. My Dad would spend the evenings working on saws,then take 4 to go cut wood,Homelites,pioneers and Mcullochs. If he was lucky he would get a load cut before they all didn't run.Then repete. My Mom bought him a Stihl 031 for Fathers...

    Gasification boiler thoughts

    A pressurized water jacket = boiler unpressurized water jacket= water heater Gasification requires wood that is seasoned and dry. Green wood contains water,which is what firefighters use to put out fires.Dosn't really work efficiently for emitting heat and will cause you nothing but headache in...

    Husqvarna 41 engine rebuild kits

    I wouldn't waste my money on that kit. You state good compression.Why phug with it then? If you were experiencing bad compression,then a new set of quality rings and you would be good to go. OEM Cylinders are the way to go,aftermarket are 95% junk. OEM pistons were coming down in price,but...
