Hopefully they get it squared away for you. Hydraulic tensioners are great when they work, and not great at all when they don't. Do they sell the manual type tensioner for their saw as well?

They do put them on the smaller machines. Auto tension is an option. Today we did 3 cord of boiler wood threw the chain off once. Next we did about 10 cord of 16Ē long wood out of about 8-10Ē average diameter logs and didnít throw the chain off once!  Not sure if Iíll put the new tighter spring on just yet. I might wait till I have to do a big batch of big boiler wood. The lighter spring thatís on it now will wear the bar less in the meantime.

Have owned my Blockbuster for 7years and 100's of cords for the two outdoor woodburners on the farms.  The only thing replaced is the manual chain tightner.  Normal wear from use.   I always feather the hyd chain when starting a cut.   Have never had any issues.   Well built heavy machine.  Mine is the pto driven machine rated at 1 cord per hour and i can produce 2 cords/hr.   When the machine is running full capacity and no down time.   I power it with a 74 hp MM tractor.  When i move it, lift the 3pt and go.   It is about the width of my corn planter (14 ft).

All of our Ponsse harvesters have hydraulic tensioners. They work very well, but you can still throw chains, for instance hitting small brush on the back of a cut. They wouldn't be throwing chains in the situations you describe, OH, unless something was wrong, like a bad bearing on the shaft.
