Great advice, tell me something, have you ridden with Bob Hannah?Like you tell a young kid on a dirt bike or a chainsaw, if you can’t start it you can’t run it!
Electric start generator, long cord, electric chainsaw. If you can’t start a saw then you won’t be working large logs so a little electric will do.
Eventually I'll be using a cordless drill but the attachment point will be the pawl detents on the flywheel, if you used the nut on the MS260 it would come off.I wander if you could use a cordless drill with a socket to spin the flywheel nut? If it’d work you could just have a small access hole in the cover.
I am looking forward to getting it running at some point.Yeah, we are gonna need to see some videos of that beast in action.
How much hp do think a engine like that make? More than say, a ported 395xp could make at around 9?
Quite a bit more power than a ported 395How much hp do think a engine like that make? More than say, a ported 395xp could make at around 9?
bahaha I bet! After I thought about it I thought if it’s powering a golf cart with a person in it it must be kicki g out some power but then again I’ve seen some old 3-4hp carts when I was kid. They have a lumberjack show up here that I should go to sometime to see them use their built up racing saws. Plus the log rolling and pole climbing etc.Quite a bit more power than a ported 395
A saw like this is what the hardcore racers used.Not an everyday kind of saw.
Even in stock form a 125 will kick a ported 395's carb and take it's lunch money
Some of the new cordless chainsaws are impressive but I love my MS260 and really have no problem using it, it's just the pull starting that gives me issues, I'm picking up a cordless brushless ½" drill and when I find an old starter cover to modify I'll use that for starting it. it should be pretty effortless and I can also use for starting my lawn mower.Depending on the size of the wood, I would recommend an electric chain saw if you aren't able to pull start it. I know the concept you are trying to achieve is possible. I had bought a Craftsman weed eater years ago and never paid attention to some of the features until my pull string broke. The last time I had a pull string break, it was a nightmare getting a new one to work properly. I noticed that on the back of the weedeater, it had a port to hook up a drill (with a separately purchased bit), so I tried it and wondered why I didn't use it from the beginning.
