That's exactly when you need them most. While they can help with squatting if clamped tight enough (not allowing the leaves to slide across each other), they are needed more for spring wrap (some...

You were fortunate to walk away unharmed (and didn't hit anyone else), so as much as it SUCKS, it could be worse.

If you need parts, let us know and we can keep an eye out. A guy I...

I don't know if it's my phone but I only see more polishing, better oiling hole transitions, more contoured counterweights, and a difference in the flywheel end hub. What else am I not seeing?
