    Zounds! At least the chain on the 064 has a decent edge. That Partner chain musta been dull as a butter knife. :monkey:

    That guy needs PPE. And some help from someone who knows what they're doing wouldn't hurt.

    There never has been a better case for using a longer bar.

    That my friends is actually pain full to watch ! The first chain was shot so why bother? And what the hell was he doing way up and over the top? Did you notice the chain floated around before he sunk it in? Maybe he wanted the stihl to look good I dont know.

    In his case . . . barely!

    Sounded like they were talking Norwegian or Swedish to me. Probably just graduated from the SawTroll School of Chainsaws. :biggrinbounce2:

    I always wondered what happened to the kid in Deliverance when he grew up.

    Until the end there, I thought there may have been a cliff on the other side of the log. Big Boss Man must have told him he had to cut from one side only.

    I was waiting for a good kickback when he performed is one-handed-no-look cutting technique.

    64 w/ 18" bar = asking for wicked kickback

    That was painful to watch! Everything else that I'm thinking after watching that is unfit for a public forum.

    Let's hope so. I'd hate to think that anybody sober and with a normal IQ would run a saw like that. Waaaay too rough.
