HUSKY 357 VS 50 HP SKID LOADER
« on: November 14, 2005, 04:39:50 PM »
SKID LOADER WON

ANYWAY I RAN OVER MY NEW 357 WITH THE SKID LOADER THIS WEEKEND IT STILL RUNS JUST NEEDS A NEW HANDLE AND SOME OTHER PLASTIC PARTS QUESTION IS IT ALSO BROKE THE UPPER FINS ON THE CYLINDER HEAD AT LEAST 1/2 OF THEM HOW DO YOU THINK THIS WILL AFFECT THIS SAW TO RUN IT WITHOUT THOSE

Ouch!.  I did the same thing (almost) when I forgot my 262XP was still in the loader and started shoving brush and logs around.  All I busted was the chain brake handle and oil tank cap.

If you run the saw at all hard I'd replace the cylinder to get the fins back.  If you let it run until it dies, you'll likely have to replace the piston too, where swapping the cylinder now you can reuse the piston.

Ouch, gotta hate it when that happens. Like da man sez, replace the cylinder now. At least you will only need to do it once, unless you leave it behind the skidder again ;D

I have my saws painted bright blue.. I paint everything on the saw, handles, covers etc..

it shows up the best of any color in the woods, I also hope that it discourages the 2 legged animals

prowling around from taking them...

Anyway, maybe you should buy another 357xp and then you can use the stomped saw for parts someday...

You should also be able to write off the remaining value on the wrecked saw on your taxes and the
cost of the new one also...maybe it will even be less than your 140.00 in the end.... ???

Missery loves company....on Saturday I dropped my saw from a yellow pine while at 60 feet :-[The lanyard unstitched itself , I never noticed any fraying. It  busted the chain brake lever and bent the wrap handle. Suprisingly it still worked fine but I will have to replace the CB handle.
