I title this one "Stihls at Rest" Can you say top bind?
I bet you figured you would get it out wilth the second saw. Thats got to piss you off there. If you had a wedge with you, you probably could have gotten it out by jamming it in the top of your cut. one note, when you see the log closing at the top of your cut, pull the saw out. If I am telling you something you already know, amybe it will help someone else. Not trying to be a smart elic.
Always...repeat Always carry an axe and two to three wedges when you go in the woods.
We were clearing storm damage from....
hurricane Isabel and it was at the end of a very long day. The AT was jumble of jackstrawed blowdowns and the crew was tired. Just the time for these things to happen. He who has never bound a saw may cast the first woodchip.
Bound a few...hence the axe...
Yup, and extra saw or two, peavey/cant hook, etc................
i know the pain
i know what is like and i am pro faller.being tired=trouble
I can honestly say I have not bound a chainsaw....................
Today! (Didn't run one today either!!)
Been there done that. The worst ever was when I was trying to fall a heavy leaner in the opposite direction of the lean. Before I knew it 3 saws stuck in the same tree. I admited defeat and dropped the tree with the lean which ment it went down a steep hill and into a lake. Turned a 1 or 2 hour job into an all day event of wenching it up hill and getting wet.
Any smashed Husky...
poooor poooor 385
I feel for anyone getting their saw smashed, but that was funny
I prolly woulda stuck three.
Which one was stuck first?
Seems like one got sooooo close, too.
Ironically, it still runs better than a Stihl.
well you still have a good b & c and some screws
YOUR MEAN.......posting pics of gypo's smashed 385 like that! That's a hard pic to look at!!!!!LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!:greenchainsaw:
You might be able to salvage the wrist pin...might....
Kinda looks like my buddy Doug`s 266 Husky after he dragged it under a bunched load behind our timberjack,we eventually replaced every broken part and it still runs well 4 years after the event. Pioneerguy600
always sucks smashing a saw but the worst is when its brand new, my grandfather once smashed a 064 about a week after he got it, set it on the track of the dozer for a minute and then got on the dozer on the opposite side, now that sucks
+1 on the axe and wedges
When I saw the smashed Husky I thought of a local Arborist that I do some repairs for. He was picking up a couple of saws, set them down behind his van then went to get his key out of the ignition. He came back to the shop for something, then got in his van and backed over his saws. It made a loud noise, but no damage. This is a 70 plus year old man that I try to help him by keeping his saws running. He does not climb anymore. He hires guys for that. Tom
