    I am looking to getting my next saw. husqvarna 562 xp is up there on the list. But here is the hard part. I have a 1976 Chevy pick up I have had for years. It is a 4wd 4 speed that I put a built 454 into it. I plowed the drve with it for years. The 454 sure had lots of pull and made it fun. Rust in the cab is bad, couldn't get a sticker for it. It has been a lawn ornament for 10 years, not started up. I want to sell it to get a new saw. It has replacement fenders and hood that are not rusted and replacement doors in good condition. How do I know what to sell it for? How bad is a motor sitting for 10 years? Do I need to pull plugs and put PB Blast in it to spin it over? Or am I better leaving it alone and selling it as is?

    Not sure how many pallets to a cord, but I can say that is one tight cord. No air space to account for.

    I know this is not the place but I lost my wife this week after 24 years of marriage. May she rest in peace.

    Do you have time to play around with it a bit? A running vehicle is always worth more. See if you can get it running. Your drivetrain alone should be worth several hundred to a thousand bucks and a running 454 is definitely worth at least a few hundred.

    20180810_085616.jpg The little 310 showed up again this morning. He says won't cut I look the chains trashed. Cleaned it up good and put the bar from the 355t on. Going to pick up a new chain for him later. For now I'm going to go clean up some more oak with it. Amazed this saw has survived the 10 years of abuse it's been through.

    Jesus, please be with my friend reading this prayer. You know every wound, every joy, every fear, every dream. Heal old wounds. Heal new wounds. Rejoice alongside. Alleviate every haunting fear. Fulfill God-sized dreams in Your timing (and help us be patient in the waiting). Help us all to see the power of Your resurrection. Give us eyes to see where new life springs in our hearts. Rejuvenate when we’re weak. We need You Jesus. Amen.

    I had to remember it was only 30ccs. Wonder how much stronger the 352 is.

    Never tried the 310. Those saws sure wake up once the cat is gone though!

    This one has the cat out. It might be getting a little tired or the abuse is catching up to it.

    This is the place. You are among friends, and right now, you have more prayers heading your way than you could imagine, God bless.

    A lady on my UPS route gave me a 73 Cutlass Supreme 350 4 barrel. It had sat for 14 years. I pulled the plugs one evening and shot some Marvel Mystery Oil in the plug holes. The next night I put the plugs back in, put a shot of gas in the carb and it fired right up. Had to do that 3-4 times till gas pumped up from the tank then it kept running. If it's locked up put an add on CraigsList for trade for the saw you want. If it starts up a 454 should be worth $400. I sold a Pontiac 455 with high mileage on it for $500. I just checked the Husky web site and a new 562XP lists for $740. If it runs with 4X4 you might get $750 for it. 4X4 parts hold their value pretty good. Good luck.
