I ordered a new hand guard for my hydraulic chainsaw from Southeast Railroad Tool Service in Ellijay, Georgia, the closest Stanley Infrastructure dealer to me. It only cost a little more than $13.00 and Stanley drop-shipped it to me from Oregon at no cost. Fantastic service from both Stanley and SE Railroad Tool Service. Interestingly, the nut and bolt that hold the hand guard onto the chainsaw are non-standard sizes. Neither metric or SAE wrenches would fit and I had to use an adjustable wrench, which was very easy. Stanley must supply special wrenches for service purposes.If this is the flat spike piece you speak of, it looks like the plastic hand-guard on yours is broken. Part number 07473(check the Flu manual to verify) is available for a reasonable price online.

I do really like the chainsaw. It is powerful, light, and quiet. Also the oiling is pretty simple. I am curious how it will do with the larger bar.
I really like that chainsaw! No fuel required, no chain oil required, very light and very powerful. It even works under water.
