    Scrounging firewood

    Sweet!!! Bar none one of the best things to make some one a better shot. I love it!!!!!! Aim small, miss small at 600 yards. Makes deer season that much easier.

    Scrounging firewood

    I knew milling generates a lot of heat and you need a ripping angled/math chain and it's strenuous on the powerhead. Kind of like prairie dog hunting. Bring a bunch of rifles and rotate through them when a barrel gets too warm.

    Who would not want to take a non stock saw home Mike? I ran a tree monkeyed 064 years back, that was a beautiful beast. I wouldn't let go. "You need to go visit, yeah no problem, I'll babysit."

    Scrounging firewood

    In my experience long bars kick back way less do to the heavier mass hanging out the front. You may get a little bump but nothing that wants to eat your ass like a 18" bar. I'll be honest small bars spook the hell out of me. My little Dolmar has wanted my lunch more than once.

    Scrounging firewood

    I never said it was dumb. Just makes no sense to me. My 394 is used for limbing, bucking, and felling in the same stroke. It is my grab first do all saw, with a 32" bar. It actually is the lightest saw in hand in the herd. Like I said. If your 395 with the 20" works well for you with no...

    And I get that Matt, I do. But running a 20" bar on 17 and a half pound power head. To bad you weren't closer. I would have no problem lending a hand.

    Scrounging firewood

    Because you can. I can totally respect that. I guess I have never really messed with 18" length rounds. For a straight noodler, the 395 would do well as well as down to a 562. I know the outboard clutch is a choke point for noodling on the 395. It is on the 394 when noodling 30" rounds. I...

    I believe you are right I don't recollect the Cadillac Touring Sport Vette......but they are stupid fun. Girlfriend's Uncle has one. It gets groceries quick.

    Two is one and one is none. At least that's my rule of thumb for another......hobby.

    A church van? Those come in tonners. We may have a new contender to the scrounger throne. @dancan is going to have to up his game. A church van doesn't put up rookie numbers.

    Dancan? He is the king of scrounging with the mom van. And he also has plastic canned Copenhagen and Bud Black Crown Tall boys.

    Scrounging firewood

    If I had a family like yours the paychecks would be going to optics, reloading components, and long range classes for the girls. Sorry dear, no date night this friday, I bought the girls matching Schmit and Benders. You have got yourself some good kids there. You are truly blessed. Imo, If I...

    Scrounging firewood

    Why? Seriously why? There is zero logic in that thought process aside from "I can." That is something i have never understood. Heavy ass power head that the bar in no way shape or form balances out. Awesome family Matt!!!

    Scrounging firewood

    Awesome!!!!!! she is going to kick you in the nuts some day for that picture. Literally. Just a heads up. Good on you for having kids that don't mind work like that. I guess I have never even considered a 70cc saw running a 20" bar. I have always felt 70cc was 24" on up. No real logic in...

    Scrounging firewood

    Eric is a super good dude. He was more than gracious to this freak out something not going right flunky when something was squirrelly. If it is not fore arm diameter then it stays for me. I just figure you have to draw a line. That's how I have been with all scrounging.

    Scrounging firewood

    It starts with a 7. It's a 70cc saw. lol. I think the few of them in the wild reside at my location and I don't really know of anyone else with more than one. I absolutely agree on how semi vs square file works. That being said, I will be out there longer and back in the game faster than...
