Sorry, been busy working and repairing other equipment that I know more about than the pole saw. Have looked at the pdf Breezemister so graciously provided
reading Slapper's and ricky86's remarks and think that maybe a part is missing.
Conflict with one of the rivets and bearing sliding down the tube is not letting the saw head retract all the way. [I think] am sure to find out whats going on when I get into it.
Having issues with a Lazer, a Hustler z and a Hustler walkbehind which leaves me running 1 Lazer and working late trying to get caught up....between the rain storms and trying to get my mowers running, just hasn't been enough time.
