Thanx Macka & CG.
Worth a shot.
Im pretty sure though the small diameter hard branches would have contributed to the bouncing to a degree.
Im not too comfortable cutting through 50mm branches with a chainsaw, it just smashes the ends making them more susceptible to infection. Suppose it depends on many factors such as job size, standard, customer expectations etc as to which way to go.

Seem to have gotten away from the V82v so, saw a 21"n side by side with a 18" in Bunnings the other day, what a difference!
The 18" looked like a toy in comparison & not just size wise. The build quality of the 21" looked far superior, everything about it substantially stronger.
Anyone using any of these mowers (he asked again..... lol.).

Cheers Fred.

ECHO P021041960 - PAS Hedge Branch Cutter Kitt

https://allpower.com...-pas-p021041960

Attached File  ECHO-MULTI-TOOL-ATTACHMENT-HBCKIT-Warranty-Logo.png   237.04KB   3 downloads

 

I don't have one, I've never seen one, I only found this link a few months ago

It's on my shopping list if it fits my Shindi poles

 

The Allpower spec sheet is useless

 

My imagination sees easier and neater height reductions and major cut backs

 

[totally off topic, sorry all]

Back on the pole chainsaw for a good portion of today.
Same prob but,whilst trying to make some sense of it, I noticed it was far more prevalent when cutting smaller dead branches. The chain didn't bite, instead it bounced, unlike when it putting it into thicker live wood which didn't seem to be any prob for it.
Might be some kind of safety cut out ? Just a thought.

Cheers Fred.


Talked to Ace saw service today re the above.
Their advice re cutting small diam branches & bouncing was to use the smallest tooth sized chain, a picco 1/4". It would bite into the small diam branches & also had the most teeth per chain length, meaning that tooth after tooth would be biting in continuously removing small amounts.

Came out with a dual action chainsaw file, which I have wanted to try for quite a while.
The file sharpens the tooth to the correct angle as well as reducing the depth gauge proportionally in the same motion.
Took it home & filed a chain, worked a treat !

Sorry, off topic again ........ what can u do ?

Cheers Fred.

That's why they were removed from the Victa website, Greenworks took almost 4 months to fix it.

I wonder if my Kobalt 80v is the same? It's a beast of a saw, but the no chain break is a worry.

I wouldn’t worry Scott, if it fails bring out a Husky or two.

You shouldn’t get anything too big down there. Even though you are affiliated with Husqvarna a small saw can do the same as a larger with an operator in the know

So the saying goes , it ain't about the size of the tool but how you use it!
