    as ive posted, i picked up a 2072 about a month back. it was down recently because the deck belt let go. it was my opportunity to borrow my fil's new husqvarna 2554. it has a 25 horse kohler in it. for what i can tell, the kohler magnum turns the 60c deck with more authority than the 25 hp...

    3000 series deck hydraulics

    ive got a 3185 and the deck will not stay where i set it. it drops as im cutting. im figuring the valve is good, but the lift ram may be due for a rebuild. is this item rebuildable? or do i have to replace it? is this the likely culprit for this?

    chainsaw decision time

    im trying to decide what chainsaw to get. so far ive looked at the dolmar 5100 for 435 or so, a husky rancher 455 for 350, and a stihl ms290 for 379. i was leaning toward the ms290, but i just looked at the dolmar, which i liked alot for the money, and the 455 husky is a pretty good price too...
