dani berry wrote:I have a Stihl "farm boss" chain saw with about 40 hours on it. I keep it sharpened, replaced the plug once, and especially like the auto lube feature so I don't have to think about oiling the chain. The last few times I have cut with it, I've needed to tighten the chain after 10 - 15 minutes of use. The last time I took it apart and saw that there was no more room for adjustment. Is it possible to take out a link to shorten it, or do I just need to break down and get a new chain. Money is tight, and I am cheap, but I do need to get this running again.
Chain saw chains do stretch,

Soon I was snoozing on the shaded deck and awoke to the noise of my tractor being started. My wife likes to use it to move buckets of animal food and in my lazy haze decided that's what she would be doing. As soon as the memory hit that I had placed my saw in that front loader, I was awake and bumbling for the driveway
....only to see her plow the front-loader into a pile full of class-5 gravel and sand!
