Black Friday Small Engine Parts

Not only will HLSupply offer you some great Black Friday small engine parts prices, we'll offer many shades of BlackFriday pricing! We can't do 50 Shades, 'cause there isn't enough time now. We do have time to do eight though. So, how about Eight Shades of BlackFriday?

Starting 7 days before Black Friday, we'll advertise 8 Shades of BlackFriday. This year, black friday falls on November 25th. Thanksgiving is on the Thursday before it, that's the twenty fourth. (Hope you have a happy Turkey Day on Thursday by the way.) In order to lead up to Thanksgiving day with more happiness, HLSupply will go on a price discount spree for 8 days.

Of course we'll keep the happiness rolling after thanksgiving with Black Friday and Cyber Monday. We'd sure love to keep the discounts coming for fifty days, but we can't think of Fifty Shades of Black!

Black Friday Deals on Small Engine Parts

Bouncing ideas around with the boss, we came up with these 8 shades of black:
  1. Dark Grey Friday - November 18th
  2. Almost Black Saturday
  3. Not Quite Black Sunday
  4. Back in Black Monday
  5. Never Go Back Black Tuesday
  6. Darth Vader Black Wednesday
  7. Burnt Black Turkey Thursday
  8. Black Friday.

What items will be discount priced on those days? Time will tell. You'll find out soon enough if you're on our V.I.P. List of sale notices. Get on it. Be in the know! Once you're on the list, we'll email notification of sales prices to you so you can get items on sale before other people can run down the inventory.

Parts On Hold

We sort of put #SmallEngineParts on hold here for a couple of days while we lived through Hurricane Matthew. Here's how it all went down.

Initially, I'll confess that nobody took the warnings very seriously. Here in Florida, we get warned about pending doom by the weather man and lady quite often. Not often does the Governor of the state grab the mic and say things like, "Beach areas evacuate or it will kill you. Others who stay, prepare to be without power, among other things." It was around that time that orders started pouring in for generator carb kits!

Complete Guide to the Husqvarna 550xp

HLSupply previously gave away a Husqvarna 543xp and a 562 using our email contacts, Facebook and OPEforum.com. If you're not on our VIP email list, you can join by clicking here. Now that the 550XP has been out for a while, I'd like to talk about that model. Of course HLSupply stocks parts for many Husqvarna models for fast delivery.

Porting Chainsaw Cylinders

Porting a Chainsaw Cylinder is "Cool"

When it comes to porting a saw, there's a lot to know. First of all, it's important to realize the differentiation between porting work saws and ones for racing. You port a chainsaw cylinder for racing differently than you port a chainsaw cylinder for regular work saws.

Regardless, the idea is to get more air/fuel into the engine.

The reason for porting a cylinder of a chainsaw for a work scenario is to

As the self appointed HLS chainsaw GTG attendee, I rolled into Rush City, MN at 4pm on July 23, 2016 to witness friends with saws compete in various classes of chainsaw racing. There were folks from a widespread area of America present.

Here's how it all went down.

Chainsaw Muffler Mod

Let's face it folks, current chainsaws are built for EPA emissions requirements, not speed and power. These days, they're so choked off that you wonder if they really produce the horsepower advertised on the box.

If you feel that your saw is lagging, which you will, you should first consider modding the muffler. Caution: You may want to wait until the warranty goes bye bye before you try any chainsaw muffler mods.

The whole idea is to reduce exhaust restriction. The first things you should try are:

Chainsaw Get Togethers

What's a Chainsaw Get Together? In a word: Camaraderie. And saws. Okay, that's two words.

Let me paint the picture for you.

At the end of last month, April 24, 2016 to be exact, there was a one day chainsaw GTG event that had been promoted on OPEforum.com. That was where the GTG was announced and coordinated. It was a gathering in New York, hosted by @166 (Steven Fitzgerald) and his crew from The Cutting Edge (FastCutting.com). A lot of guys on the forum who are into chainsaw mods, repairs and complete overhauls, or just work with chainsaws, talked it up for weeks.

Chainsaw GTG Chatter

There was a ton of chatter in the weeks leading up to the event on
