Default saw fixed-dealer did right

The saw in a previous post I had bought, wasn't trying to tell me it was hard starting, it was the carburetor going out of adjustment.(Huskvarna-562) In August,( 2016) went out and tried to get some wood cut. Saw would absolutely not run worth a crap. Finally just would not start at all. Didn't take it to the hardware store where I bought it, as a shop that sold and serviced mowers, saws, and all kinds of small equipment opened up. And is probably the biggest professional lawn care company here in East Toledo area. Figure they might have a better mechanic. Took that big Husky in, as well as my small one, and my brothers 2 Homelite's. $90 up front to get them all tuned up. In a week's time, 3 of them were done. Not my 562. Dealer said that Huskvarna had some problems with the carburetor on the bigger models. They have to meet EPA standards, and the carb has to be set by computer. Not sure he was feeding me a line or not. Anyway, stopped by about once a week for 6-7 weeks, and bugged him. Always nice, nobody got mad. Finally got the call, saw fixed. Here's the good part. Went in, and the mechanic showed me the starting procedure he used, no priming, put the choke on, one or 2 pulls, click the run switch, and it starts right up. Went up front to the counter man to find out the damage's. I thought it would be a couple hundred bucks. He told me that the saw was not registered, didn't know if the hardware store didn't, or forgot to. Sooo--he registered it under his shop, claimed he sold it to me 5 months earlier, all the work and parts covered by warranty, didn't cost me a dime. He well get my business down the road!! Happy Husky owner. gypsyman
