Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Can you put an 18 in. bar and chain on a poulan 2055 14 in ?

Answers :

Have you considered a rental? Home Depot rents Makitas (Dolmar) with a 20" bar reasonably. Be warned running a Dolmar/Makita will make you question the value of your Poulan LOL. HTH
Yes, but I REALLY don't suggest it. I am a Certified Arborist with 5 years of field experience. I have worked with chainsaws all day everyday for a long time. The longer the bar, the more drag produced. The more drag produced, the harder the saw has to work to move the chain and cut wood AND the slower the chain is going to move. Fast cutting is not about bigger bars, it is about faster chains. The faster the chain is moving, the faster the wood chips are being removes and thrown. The smaller the bar, the faster you'll be able to cut. The rule of running a chainsaw is to use the smallest saw that will do the job safely. I actually replace all of the bars and chains on the new saws I buy with smaller ones than they're originally equipped with. Just look at the saws firefighters us to get into a burning building. They are high CC engines, with SHORT bars and chains. Remember to keep your chain sharp, too. Keep an extra. When yours gets dull, replace it with the sharp one and take the dull one to a shop to be sharpened. It only costs a few bucks and they'll do it right. There's a lot more to a sharp chain than just a sharp cutting edge. Angle, depth, and depth gauge height are crucial. "A Tree Man is only as good as his saw is sharp." Be safe and good luck.

Replaces the belt on dirt devil dynamite pluse model put everything back together started it and it burt the new belt up that fast. I put it around the beater brush and the metal bar I thought it should go around, yet it seemed like there should be something else there to put the belt on. What do you suggest? Do you have picture I could go by?

The metal bar you put it around if the bar itself does not spin it is going to burn the belt up. Every thing that the belt is supposed to go around has to turn or the belt will rub on the piece not moving and brake. ... Vacuums

My Bissell Model 3760-4 is not working properly. The belt has been replaced (and checked 3 times), but the brush bar does not move when the brush motor button is on. The little metal turning piece that turns the belt is turnable with one's finger when the belt is off, but when we put it all back together and turn on the vacuum, the brush bar does not go around and the burning belt smell returns. The portable part of the machine works properly. It's the brush bar. It has been cleared of hair, etc

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.\012 \012 Like most Dyson vacuums, DC17's main suction motor is protected by a thermostat which shuts the machine down if it starts to overheat. This could be due to a blockage, and the filter may also need a wash ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

My Oregon Scientific BAR888 has 5 windows, 1. temperature, 2. humidity, 3. mb/hPa or inHg (switch at the back), 4. bars showing pressure changes over 24 hours, and 5. time/date. Window 3 gives an option to set something between 0 and 2500. Oregon say they only have one set of instructions for the BAR888 but they do not match my instrument as there is nothing included for my window 3. Trouble is I don't know what the 0 to 2500 relates to and therefore don't know what to set it at.(My model does n
