My first year cutting wood so I expected there might be days like this. Man am I bummed. Big oak limb "sat" down on my bar and the only way to get it out was to chip away with the Fiskars. So I'm chipping and calling myself an idiot when I whack the chain brake with the Fiskars, thereby cracking the guard and messing up the spring mechanism. Guy down at the shop shook his head like a Doc. breaking bad news. I can buy parts, but I don't know if I want to mess around trying to fix such an important part of the saw. But it's only three months old! It's a Poulan Pro, 16". What would you do?
