Post by: Cut4fun . on November 06, 2015, 07:47:04 pm
Guy wonder if it could be welded up or just get another case.  Dawg mount gone as you can see.

Is that just busted out or is it corroded.

Palm and Yucca are highly corrosive. I have my guys break down the saws and pull clutches after doing Palm removals for thorough cleaning and spray with LPS or WD Nasty chit!!

Don't think I'd mess with trying to weld that one... aftermarket case might be more cost effective

I think it is a 066.  Dont worry about it Adam IMO.

The guy bought 2 for $20 apiece.

I think there is more there damaged then he realizes. Look around the brake band area.

I do not believe I would weld that either.   Just too much corrosion.

You need to disassemble the chain side of your chainsaw and thoroughly clean all the mechanism after cutting into palm.

The tree sap is corrosive?

Very corrosive and a skin irritant if you have sensitive skin. Yucca is worse...

Revenge of the Yucca tree

That's what plastic cased 029-MS390 type saws are for.  I've talked to tree guys that have a few 'palm saws' put aside for that mess....

Good idea Aaron!

Yep.  A couple beater MS290/455 Rancher type saws would be fine for dealing with the palm/yucca jobs.  Keeps that garbage out of your good saws.
