Question about Remington Electric Chain Saw
I have the extending Remenington pole chain saw - the chain saw that attachs is a little 8 inch job. The electrical contact brushes have broken and therefore the saw no longer runs. I have been looking all over to see if I can get the replacement brush set, but it looks like Remenington is going defunct - I have tried a couple of places that listed the part, but they say they can no longer get them. Do you think I should try and find a small electrical appliance repair guy hoping they can rig something up? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
You already know Remington(Power) is no longer in production. You may not know all replacement parts are very difficult to find and this brand requires a constant supply of them. I think you are going to invest time and money in a saw that next week will need a part you cannot locate or manufacture.
IMO your time and money will be better spent on a name brand replacement saw. Wen produced a quality product in the past and are again offering electric and petrol chainsaws. If available in your area, a critical examination discloses a quality product, and you are willing to gamble on them remaining in business they are a good alternative. We rarely get questions for McCulloch or Poulan. I do not foresee their stopping production within my life time and should also be considered.
If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.
Thank You for using FixYa.

Our local Ace Hardware store has a box of different sizes of motor brushes. See if a store in your area has one or can obtain one. Check with an electric tool repair facility to see if they may have something similar that fits a drill or other appliance. Good luck! (buy extras!)
