Kicking Off '17 Old School Style!

Published on Jan 1, 2017
As we look forward into the new year of 2017, lets us be thankful we made it - as many that we knew and appreciated did not. Everyday that a logger or faller makes it out of the woods is another chance to love those around you - a blessing!

On a side project helping out a father and son tag team operation. Cat 3T with a cable blade and a pony (or goat) motor to start it. Mentioned in the video that the tracks looked original - the grousers were slight nubs at best. My dad had many of these over the years. Had to time the crank lever just right on the goat motor or it would tear your thumb out of the socket.
Thanks for watching.

All new and rare! Tree Fails and Idiots with Chainsaws S02E01
M bud


Published on Jan 13, 2017
From the very beginning of 2017 we start our second season of idiots with chainsaws and tree fails. The first episode is already here for your entertainment and education!

ATTENTION! Never try tree removal, tree cutting or tree felling as it is performed in this video. Always remember that hiring a professional lumberjack or arborist is much safer and cheaper.

No one is neither dead due to the circumstances occurred in the video, nor has suffered any serious injuries for the same reason.

Enjoy and comment on your favourite piece!

Woods Ported ms460 Jacking A Nice Redwood
hotsaws101


Published on Jan 15, 2017
Here we have a test drive on Mr. Hembury's ms460 sporting a 36" Stihl liteweight bar.
This video was once lost but is now found! As promised, I posted a vid of the saw working, albeit a few years late.
We are jacking a nice second growth, 1/4ed up the hill, in an attempt to save it out so the timber owner isn't left cryin...... Additionally, we were leaving all the whips possible in this strip so this unit will qualify for a "green" designation. This creates more challenges for the trees you are cutting - getting them the ground - as well the usable ground you are left with because of the "shot blockage" from leaving the whips standing. It was a pain working on/jacking this tree with the whips on the back side to be perfectly clear. In the end we did prevail so it was woods ported ms460 one and nice second growth red a big fat zero.....
And yes, I did slightly plagiarize Mr. Hembury's motto - which is a good one I might add!!!
Thanks for the test drive and plagiarize-ation!

DIY Husqvarna Chainsaw Clutch Removal

Get a Husqvarna 372xp clutch here http://amzn.to/2joyXQg

Today on the Husqvarna 372 Chinese build we are replacing the Clutch. I had to order a new clutch as the old one was missing the snap ring, spacer and special chain guide. You can either make your own Husqvarna clutch removal tool or buy one. The clutch itself is pretty inexpensive at around 35 dollars. Replacing the clutch will take you about 1/2 to a hour to do.

A First Look at some MS660 After market Cylinder Options....
afleetcommand


Published on Jan 28, 2017
The entire 56mm concept and now the "pre ported" Cross Performance concept are beginning to feel familiar to me. In the motorcycle world and really all the motor sports world EXCEPT chainsaw there have been companies that make their mark by offering performance enhancing products....since chainsaws or on that thin line between simply being a tool vs. a moto sport of some kind, not much attention has been given to them as a moto sport. THIS left a huge opportunity which has been largely filled by saw builders.....until now. :) THIS is just the beginning....and there will be more and more products to satisfy the demand for more and more performance per given weight of a saw...MOST interestingly enough for the casual "non" pro level type. So I suspect this is just the beginning...no I KNOW this is the first salvo....we all win. This mixed in with the parts saws create a real interesting time for the chainsaw enthusiast. Understand this is a small part if the "real" chainsaw world, but its growing, only time will tell who positions themselves best here....

Installing a crank and bearings in a chainsaw WITHOUT A PRESS
Matthew Olson


Published on Feb 1, 2017
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.


THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING. Putting chainsaw chassis halves together can be a pain. The heat, the bearings the sealer, the press etc etc. I don't know how anyone expects the case halves to seal properly when using heat etc, or not putting flats on bearings if you use a shop press. I know I know (Walt...you know who you are) ...supposedly using a shop press isn't a problem. But it gives me the willys.

Husqvarna ALREADY HAS THIS TOOL AVAILABLE and it is model specific. I'm very happy that I diy'd this tool instead of buying it.

Best way, I think... heat the PTO side case, drop in a bearing right out of the freezer, heat the inner race only of that bearing, drop in the cold crank right out of the freezer. heat the flywheel side case, then drop in a freezing bearing. let it all come to room temp. apply case sealer at room temp, use the tool in this vid to draw the two case halves together.

no shop press needed

what you do need... some 3/4" threaded rod, nuts, and an assortment of larger washers... 5/8 and 3/4" etc.
a shim of some kind (bushing, inner race of a larger bearing, or a piece of a scrench)
a drill and tap set, as appropriate for whatever flywheel side nut (in this case m8x1.0)
an adjustable wrench and ideally a vice. what'd I forget?

the only thing I haven't directly addressed here is the issue of bearings on the PTO side of certain saws that have integral seals. in that particular case, you would ideally have a make a similar tool that threads onto the PTO side of the crank.

Here is a 2nd tool, for m10x1.0 threads. Ideal for husky 394 or stihl ms660 ( I think ) flywheel side crank puller.

Oh, and I hate proprietary bearings.

Usually the oem bearings for these model saws come as one piece, bearing and seal, but if you want to use aftermarket stuff, the seals are available separately and you can use your own bearings... 6202's ... as long as they are open on the inside for lube. If you have sealed or closed bearings just pop out the seals and leave the bearings open towards the inside of the crankcase.

If you have a heat gun likely warming up the bearing cups could help, but you need to be careful not to damage the rubber seal with too much heat.
