    Quoted from TractorDoc:

    Having an outdoor wood burner I'd say its fair that we cut a lot of wood.

    Not cheap, but we've always used Stihl saws and blades with good results. We always keep a sharpener with us as some wood (locust) is more dense than others -- plus some dirt always finds its way to the blade eventually.
    Over the last year dad has been using an electric/battery powered Milwaukee saw and he seems to like it. Its good for the smaller stuff but I've not made the transition yet.

    The woodshed is in excellent condition. Whats growing in that greenhouse?

    Quoted from Hougie:

    Side note: Stay away from big box store saws!
    My first chainsaw was a Husqvarna 440e from Lowe's. The stupid thing never ran right. We had to adjust the idle all the time and it never seemed to help much. Took it to a professional repair shop and he said that the box stores get special models made for them out of cheap parts.
    I bought a Husqvarna 450 and never looked back. I had to adjust the idle within the first couple of hours of use and now it starts on the second pull each time. I've cut several dead ash trees ☹️ and tons of small stuff with no issues!

    When a company also makes a dirt Bike beware!

    Quoted from Hougie:

    Lol. Is that really true? I'll run just about anything Honda. They make killer engines. We have multiple Honda quads, a dirt bike, a pressure washer, a tiller, and a couple of their vehicles. Should I be worried?

    Timber Chop World championship is 3rd in my favorite sports behind hockey and Bass. Canada and USA forces in this competition.
