I usually fix my own stuff but if it has a warranty I feel it's at least having them look at it. The dealer is one of the best I know. They do all out door power equipment plus a snowmobile junk yard. Great guys very honest. He actually offered for me to take a demo unit home with me if I needed it.
This saw is a brand new model, it has computer controlled tuning so it made sense for me to take it in first. No simple 'just clean the carb' on this one....
I am the same way, I either fix it or MacGyver it.. Usually I get them going, not always.
My chain saw is not as fancy as yours. BUT I have a compression release on mine, once in a while I will try to start it with using that. When I do that, I swear as soon as I pull it and feel my shoulder come out of joint. Dang it has a lot of compression.
Anyone need a LCD TV with a burnt out power supply? I looked online and decided it was better just to buy a new one.
Do women ever get over those "hot flashes'?
I woke up this morning freezing my Behind off, I was shaking and shivering. My bed mate got up in the night and opened the window all the way and put the fan in it. We have no heat on in the house right now and still she tried to freeze me to death!
