    Yep, cool show. I really liked that ms460.:clap:

    That hotsaw was a rotax(half of a snowmobile engine), the boy said it made 35 hp.:jawdrop: :jawdrop:



    The cross cut saw was wicked also. My favorite was the Deere feller buncher.:chainsaw: :dizzy:

    Yeah I watched it. It has a good description of how a chainsaw chain cuts.

    Between the chick who needed 20 stiches that finished the timersports competition and the one tossing around 24" rip saw blades there were some tough women on that show.

    Why would it be a quarter? Most Rotax two strokes are twin cylinder models.

    I liked how he even had the variable exhaust valve on the saw
