Re: Chain Saw recommendations?

Lethbridge Honda had the MS170 on for $199. No brainer.

Chain Saw recommendations?

As you all know, I'm incredibly cheap/poor and since I'm building an EX track I need a saw. Are electric ones any good? Should I just buy a cheap Poulin? Should I pony up and buy a Stihl/Husky? I am here for your input.

Re: Hiya!

Unfortunately yes Dylan. I forgot to say thanks to all three of you. It was a pleasure working with you guys. I'm heading to Magrath (15 min south of Lethbridge) because my wife wants to be closer to her family.

Castle and Porkies are about the same distance away. Too far...

I knew how to read riding lines from previous experience on a mtb, but managing a clutch and...

Re: Battery Life/Maintenance

It should hold a charge indefinitely just like a car. Obviously if you aren't riding it will dwindle over time. I'd take it out over the winter, put it in the basement on a trickle charger and install it for next season.

Kinked pipe?

Is there anyone local that can reliably repair a kinked pipe? It's in good shape otherwise. Just a hard hit knocked it out of shape a bit.

Re: Chain Break tool?

You're right Steve. I got the extra links off easy enough, but I'm having difficulty setting the master link. I'm on the south side if anyone could help me out.

Chain Break tool?

I'm finally changing my chain and sprockets. Unfortunately the front sprocket isn't in stock so I have to wait until Tuesday to know for sure about my chain length. Does anyone have a chain break tool I can borrow in case I have to remove a link or two?
