Just rambling on:
Wife had a bad fall and went critical bac in Dec, in rehab now but I got way behind on the winter work. Finally got to the normal (for me) saw clean up yesterday. Drain fuel, run dry, give thorough cleanign, sharp chains as needed (didn't have to do any this time).
Started with the MS361. Discovered that it has a decomp valve. Don't think it needs one but I tried it out and forgot to reset the "I'm too dumb to reset a choke" lever until I had pulled two more times past the "Pop" - cost me another 5 or 6 pulls to clear it. I only ran it once to fall a big willow last Nov. Wow! I had forgotten how it sounds. My 310 when fired up says "Let's go play" That 361 says "Let's get to work!".
Did the 310 and Husky 51 before I froze out. Still need to pull the 28" bar off Mr. 361 and put on the 24" bar. Later in the year I will buy another 20" bar for it.
Still need to get out and burn my brush piles from last year.
Looking forward to the cutting season which should start along early March. Got quite a few small/medium Locust lined up, several big Willows, and am sending out 3 more letters in the morning requesting cutting rights to Locusts taht are dying from the Locust Borer.
