    Both my chainsaws are Sthill and they are prety good but dead fussey on the 2stroke mix. If its too rich they cough and splutter

    I have something like a 12 " and 16" bar? for both Sthill's cant remember the lengths but its a No45 and a No49 blade

    Generaly if they wont start it because they were stored wrong and the carb is totaly empty.

    I have a Johnson reed single bar hedge trimmer and it seems to run great no matter how much I screw up the 2stroke mix

    Any recommendations (to buy or avoid) on specific models? A quick search online turns up some variable reviews.

    As far from the sea as we could be, except when we can actually get in it.

    I have a H 353 with a 20" bar and it's been fine. I had the carb ultrasonic cleaned after I left it for 12months with fuel in. My mistake and it was only something like 45quid for a re-build, bar grind and a professional chain sharpening. I think I should get a shorter bar really - it's a bit awkward to use up a tree.

    For folk visiting NDAC, Mincost in Lydney happen to be very competitive for chainsaws and PPE. Lots in stock normally too.

    Is the weed in NDAC that bad you need a chainsaw? Also does the chainsaw need an alternative supply?

    Sorry, yes, sharpeners.

    A chain was only 8.69 in Trago when I needed a replacement (or it sharpening!) last weekend to finish cutting some oak sleepers for the garden, but now I have a spare chain it would be good to be able to sharpen it myself.

    I'm not against learning to do it 'by hand' but I know I've got a knack of being a bit 'variable' with things like that - even sharpening kitchen knives I'll get one lethally sharp and then make the next one blunter than it was when I started!
