That sucks. What saw?I helped a friend open up an old logging trail on his land this morning. Great chainsaw running weather.
We worked until the chain brake on his saw broke. It was pretty rough watching a guy come to hate his chainsaw. I just kept clearing while he fiddled, which looking back at things, didnt really help him like his saw any more.
Yeah, the clutch cover is tricky if the brake is messed with while the cover is off. I actually thought my 460 was broken once because the brake didn't work at all, but I somehow got the clutch cover on without the brake going back together right. My wife thought I was crazy for buying multiple chainsaws, but having spares is crucial when you have to travel to cut wood.He has(d) a Husky.
He threw the chain. It looks like the brake engaged while he had his cover plate off the saw. He, then we, fiddled with it trying to get the brake band to disengage so we could slip the cover back on. We ended up breaking it, which would have got the saw back to working condition, but I had to leave by that time. I think he was going to run to a dealer in the next town over to get the part replaced.
Today is the first day I've seen deer in my yard since early spring.This morning was 60 out. It was great to sit out, needing a long sleeve shirt. Sitting on my patio watching the sun come up.. had 10 turkey walking through.. 4 rabbits and bird's chirping... haden had a morning like this in a while..
