    0* at the moment. It's a rock drill, I'm tramming across the ice to get to the shot. I'm drilling and blasting for a new building site

    Oh. The guy I'm logging for does blasting. I'll have to get a picture if the drill they have out there. Used it to make a well and putting in fence posts.

    it's a whopping 1 above for now and dropping to -30 over night with a sustained wind of 20 mph. saying -61 wind chill ! good night to burn some extra hot dry red oak to keep the digits warm? coldest night of the year/winter so far.

    If the carb is icing up ,can get these plastic things from the stihl dealer ,or duct tape part of your recoil cover ,helps the heat of the jug keep the carb warm .
