Resetting a Chain Brake on Husqvarna Chainsaws

If you’ve accidentally taken the clutch cover off your chainsaw with the chain brake still engaged, here is a step by step guide on how to reset the brake band. Shown above you can see the inside of the brake band has come away from the outer edge of the drum. This is caused by the clutch cover being taken off while the chain brake is on. You will find you are not able to refit the clutch cover back on and it will need to be reset. To reset the chain brake you will need a Wrench Chain Brake Reset Tool, the Husqvarna 236 model comes with the tool but the 135, 435, 445 and 450 models you can purchase the tool here. You will need to place this over the piece shown above and pull it until it clicks, it is quite stiff. Once it is re-set you […]

National Kids Take Over the Kitchen Day

Kids and teens all over the country today are called upon to take over the kitchens to make their favourite recipe or help make a meal for their family. Now being a parent, I cannot say I condone my kids to be left alone in the kitchen cooking for more than 30 seconds without being supervised due to the mess and destruction they can cause within 60 seconds. So this year I propose to send them outside and get them cooking on the BBQ to teach them new skills and get them involved with being outdoors. So this year we shall be doing all the preparation in the kitchen then heading outdoors to see what culinary delights we can create…hopefully this shall keep their interest for longer than the 2-3 minutes that we are used to. Not only is a BBQ designed for cooking burgers and sausages, this cave man […]

The tell-tale signs of CO poisoning are headaches, nausea, breathlessness, dizziness, collapsing and loss of consciousness. A BBQ must be left […]

Not only do we sell products, we also test and use them at home to ensure we can offer the best advice and product range to our customers.

Having let my 3 boarder hedges grow out over the past few months to gain height, the Makita cordless hedge trimmer had its work cut out. After charging the battery earlier in the day, we were soon ready to get to work. Taking the battery and slotting it into place was very simple (much […]
