Chainsawrepair,

I am presently operating with a muffler that is not equipped with a spark arrester.  It is in good shape, but in the State of Oregon we are supposed to utilize chainsaws that are equipped with approved spark arresters.  I have been operating only on my own land, but you are facing large fines if you are on State property without the proper equipment.  It also would not be good to accidently start a fire while not using a spark arrester where ever you are located in this state.  Issues of liability and illegal equipment would both be involved.

For the reasons mentioned I would definitely like to acquire a muffler equipped with an approved spark arrester system.  I have some spark arrester screen material and was planning to attempt to modify my old muffler by welding the screen material over the burned out area.  I would prefer to locate a descent unit that is factory equipment and not home made, if possible.

If you are aware of something that would fit my needs I am interested.

Nick, North West Farmer
