    High Use or Professional Chainsaws

    17 years ago I bought a New Husky 385XP still runs like a beast. 24" bar using it today to cut up some firewood. every tank of gas I blow it off with compressed air and touch up the chain with a file. great saw.

    BX23S hazard lights stay on

    Heres an odd one.... The 4-way flashers on my BX won't shut off. I'm thinking maybe a bad flasher? or the round push button switch... I sprayed a little contact cleaner around the button but didn't help. haven't had time to look for the flasher or investigate further. ... but I will soon...

    Willow propagation?

    I hadn't thought about that... good to know. They are a good distance from the last leg of the leech field... I think I should be ok. Ima (try) to keep the bush willow trimmed back. Hybrids can grow as high as they want.

    Willow propagation?

    I cut 2 branches off a japanese willow and stuffed them in water bottles.... Not sure if thats how you do it... But it seems to have started roots... So heres the question: How long do you wait until you plant it in soil? wait until it's a good established root ball or put it in soil now...
