    Oregon 410 120 Sharpener Diamond Wheel With Stihl Carbide Chainsaw Chain

    Oregon 410 120 Sharpener Diamond Wheel With Stihl Carbide Chainsaw Chain
    After milling most of the big Pecan log as well as several other pieces of lumber and boards, it's time to sharpen the carbide chain. But you can't sharpen a carbide chain with just any chain grinder. You must use a diamond wheel on the chain sharpener. In this case the Diamond wheel company supplies a diamond sharpening wheel for the Oregon 410-120 chainsaw chain sharpener. With this setup, sharpening a carbide chain is much like sharpening any standard chainsaw chain. Set you angles properly and it will work just fine. With a good sharp Stihl Oilomatic Duro Carbide chain, the Stihl MS661 chainsaw and the Logosol M8 Farmers chainsawmill, you can do some really nice work and make some really nice boards.

    Got a tach and investigated the low RPM issue before shooting this one. Could probably lean it out a bit more, but not going to. Hopefully this saw won't be in service much longer and I can hang it on my wall to drool over.

    Measure Port Timing & Define Project for modding a Farmertec / Huztl 372xp "X-Torq" Cylinder
    afleetcommand



    Published on Nov 26, 2016
    I've been working on this for a while, last year a couple of folks had done there builds. I started....ran out of time & put it down. They finished we all went different directions so It's sat for a year. Decided to finish it...but instead of just doing what everyone else does, decided to venture in other direction..

    SO this is simply measuring what I have in the Top End I want to use. Also video real time as I define "Stage 1" of this project saw. Follow up vides will happen. Plan to just get this running so I have a platform to test other X-Torq build concepts.

    Stihl ms661-c Insane-O
    hotsaws101



    Published on Dec 3, 2016
    Here we have an "on location" first test drive of an insane-o-ized, latest version Stihl ms661c. Near the base of Mt. Emily in north east Oregon - at my friend Laine's custom Trophy pedestal design and build establishment.
    As mentioned, this saw is for Mr. Foushee in the mid Sierras. He will be sporting a 36'' or 42'' here shortly. I curious to see what the response will be.
    I played around with some alternate electrical and carburetion options and finally landed on the stock coil and carb but used a harness from an older machine I had laying around. Not sure what the rub was with the original one.
    After a few test cuts Mr. and myself decided this saw is a beast.
    I'm currently available for ZipKitting (hop ups, woods porting, modding) saws. Please shoot me an email is you are interested.

    HUSQVARNA 460 Rancher Chainsaw Review
    WorkshopAddict



    Published on Dec 6, 2016
    Price the Husqvarna 460 Rancher 20-Inch on Amazon: http://amzn.to/2gMavXI
    460 Rancher Felling - The 460 Rancher is a great bang-for-buck chainsaw for an experienced, but non-pro user. If you make your living as an arborist, or cut every day, you will be looking at the Xp models. Our Husqvarna 460 Rancher was ordered with a 20" bar and on a 60cc saw is just about perfect, though the saw will cut like crazy with an 18" bar and chain. Husqvarna recommends the max bar and chain size to be 24", but choose your chain wisely as that could be a lot of teeth to pull, pending the wood you are cutting.

    If you order a 20" bar, note that the factory oiler setting is 2 of 3 and will not be sufficient. Turn it up to 3 of three for the proper oil for that sized bar.

    Starting the 460 Rancher was impressive! The saw starts on 2nd pull cold or 1st pull hot consistently. These easy starts are even consistent in all kinds of weather, including when the saw is covered in snow. The compression release is appreciated toward end of day but we found the recoil start easy enough that many times we did not use it when the chainsaw was warm. This chainsaw is relatively light and has a good "Husqy" feel to it.

    Power wise, the Rancher 460 is not a pro saw, but we used it for felling mostly Elm and Oak, averaging 17" diameter. We also used this saw for bucking the felled trees and it performed flawlessly with ample power. The 60cc motor will "torque up" in your hands when revving.

    460 Rancher Features

    Side-mounted chain tensioner for easy access
    20-Inch Bar
    Quick release air filter to facilitate cleaning and replacement of air filter
    Forged 3-piece crankshaft for maximum durability for the toughest applications
    CARB Compliant
    460 Rancher Suggestions

    Please be sure to read the instruction manual before you assemble your new chainsaw. The manual clearly says to be sure the chain break is off before removing the clutch cover to install the chain. This should be a given for an experienced use, but if you don't there is a chance a dealer will have to put the cover back on.

    Another word of caution and something we preach about all the time. These new saws require premium gas, 91 octane or higher. Also, using gas with more than 10% ethanol well cause them to run too lean and over heat and burn up the pistons. You must also use high performance 2 stroke oil (the stuff you use in your outboard will not cut it). Use Husky XP oil or purchase your fuel and oil already pre-mixed.
    Overall

    While there are some words of wisdom in this review, the fact is the Husqvarna Rancher 460 is an excellent saw. These words of wisdom should be communicated to any saw buyer as our fuel and CARB (EPA) requirements keep changing and ethanol is not good for any small engine. There is no doubt that with care and proper maintenance, the Rancher 460 will be a saw that will be handed down to the next generation. Great build quality in addition to top notch features keep Husqvarna at the top of the pack.

    Cutting down a burning tree. Tree on fire
    Wayne Earls



    Published on Dec 4, 2016
    It's hard to tell, but the tree is burning, so it had to be dropped immediately. The tree was dead and a spark from a nearby fire lit the burning tree.

    Husqvarna chainsaw, how to split a case without a case splitter on a 394xp

    If you are looking for aftermarket chainsaw parts, please support my channel by buying from these guys http://www.hlsproparts.com/?Click=48376

    Disclaimer: ladies and gents, this is a CHAINSAW, working with, building and fiddling with these can KILL YOU, I am not and will not be responsible for improper technique or accidents even remotely relating to this video, please view for entertainment purposes only.



    Thanks to JMSSAWS for the idea, this is how I split a husqvarna 394xp chassis without using a case splitting tool. heat and a rubber mallet are good enough! next time I'll try removing the seals first, then heating the inner race of the bearing, and then hit it, and see if the bearing stays in the case, and the crank fall out of the bearing. .... there's always next time :)

    bonus footage of me using the bearing puller
