    I have a 395XP that is probably ten years old. About 5-6 years ago the gas tank began leaking along the bottom seam where the two halves are molded together. After a year or so of ignoring it and putting it off, I took it to a local shop where the guy said he could plastic weld the tank and fix it. Picked it up a week later and all was well for about a year and a half and it started leaking again. So about 3 years ago I bought a replacement gas tank from Bailey's and promised myself I'd fix it soon. I kept putting it off thinking it was going to be a major project. Then other priorities came up, such as buying a house, moving, remodeling the new house, etc. Anyway, this morning I decided to fix it. Dug everything out and it only took about 90 minutes. The worst part was pulling the fuel line through the tank and the plate that holds the carb. I used a piece of whipping twine and choked the end of the fuel line, stuck the twine through the hole and used it to pull the fuel line through. That worked amazingly well. As you can see in the pic, Husqvarna changed the design of the tank to add material along the bottom seam so it wouldn't wear out or crack as easily. I have a big live oak removal on Tuesday which was my motivation for getting this fixed. Tired of having to add fuel every time I want to use it, and not adding too much fuel because it leaks out when you leave the saw sitting.

    Holy cow that's a bargain! Unless you're mistaken, which I think is likely. Six or eight years ago GASoline71 Gary was picking up rolls for me at one of those PNW logging supply houses and shipping it to me UPS. At that time he was paying about $300 per roll plus tax so it was about $400 for me by the time I paid UPS and a few dollars for Gary's time. My local dealers all want full retail prices which are almost the same as buying loops. I finally found a dealer willing to sell me Stihl chain at somewhat reasonable prices but it's still around $400 per roll, more for the 33RSF. I prefer spinning my own loops. I always have chain and I can keep a couple extra loops on the truck at all times. No need to stop by the saw shop once a week and spend money because you ALWAYS end up buying more stuff than what was on your list. Same theory in buying water and Gatorade at the grocery store and packing a cooler every day. No need to stop at the 7-11 every day for drinks and end up spending $5-10 every time you walk in the door.

    Haha, no Jay, he's taking a week next month to go see her but they're not planning to marry till Thanksgiving time. He usually plants several varieties but only 2 this year . I think he should stick with 2 always . As to cross pollination he plants 1 variety in its own field. Others are separated by pollination/tassel timing. Some goes to our church conventions every year, the rest he sells, trades and gives away

    OK...we are back on task. Got by last year with the ladder still. Alex has bought the wood for the final access tower...scabbed together some very long 6'x6' posts...I think they are 32-35' long. They will be the supports for the enclosed walk-up tower that gives the kids safe access to the Monkey Slide. I spent about 3 hours today getting Moso bamboo to put together a big tripod to help raise the timbers...

    Right, Gary, rice fields. I think i deleted those photos to try not to remember that job. It's that time of year again though. :/: Peter, i think I would be a little incredulous too if it was a push mower. Could they have been listening to their favorite rock and roll song at the time?

    Willie, he's going to leave you to take care of the weeds? :|: Does he plant only one corn variety? Not concerned about cross pollination if mixed? What's he do with all that produce?

    Me? No, my mower almost went into the drink too, but I caught it and only bent the handle. Not your average home owner's mowers though. These have multiple gears in either direction and climb steep embankments.
