I've often wondered why I can't upload and attach a PDF file to a post and then anyone could download it from a thread. Maybe that is possible, but I've never seen it done. That way the inbox step could be bypassed. I suppose there are reasons for this.

it can be but we would probably have a million threads for IPL's and other manuals. that's why there is the beg for manuals thread. i have a hard time putting PDF'sup too. this one i just copied and paste.

Here's my first try with File Dropper:

I think that I like Farmer Steve's better (no background noise).
i don't sign up for any "free" downloads they don't need my info. there are a few guys on here that have a treasure trove of manuals. i download everyone that i see that i don't have. even the Husqvarna ones. ya never know.:rolleyes:

Do you remember giftsofwood - stihl manuals easy to download. Word was Stihl's lawyers forced him to close the site, due to copyright law.

Yes, Ray, I remember that very well. He never used advertising and was just trying to be helpful. Stihl was myopic on this issue. That guy was selling a bunch of chainsaws for them by proxy and they never realized it. He was money in the bank.

I took my 026 PRO out to the field today and cut almost a whole truckload of firewood rounds with her. A few big ones got handled by my Husky 257 that has been giving my Stihl MS 361 a temporary vacation. Both saws performed flawlessly.

It took six choke pulls to fire the 026 because I had let her sit for nearly a year. I run with a 16" bar and .325" pitch chain. She seems to love that setup and screams hard at WOT, eager to let me know that she still has the guts and the grunt. Now my other Husky saws are jealous again.
