There ya go may the farce be with you
There it freakin' is!
Sometimes the word "Thinning" means 'pre-commercial' size. I fall trees all day long but rarely much above 10" dbh, though sometimes. I also do this in the mountains at times, or at other times in heavy slash on post-harvest sites, which can be a rather athletic task to walk on all day. So Power:Weight ratio is important to me and I use a 50cc saw for "Thinning" (550XP currently). I keep a 60cc saw as a back-up and for when one of my friends inevitably needs a bigger piece of wood cut, and sometimes when I can stay near the truck I will run the 60cc (562XP currently) for a tank or two, though a 60cc class saw looks a little stilly with a 16" bar on it. But I don't want to tote around any more weight than necessary. The last few days has been in one of the more annoying snow conditions - 1" of fresh clean powder and temps in the low 20s at best since it fell, making the ground feel like it is covered in graphite dust. Not fun on a slope.
I lugged around the 2150 all day today, brushing trail. Man that's more work than felling with the 2171.
Cut up one tree with the 2159, which then makes the 2150 feel lighter for about 5 minutes.
