    Stihl 362C?

    The 362's are fairly popular and seem to be a good saw. The 268 and 266 are both known "hotrods" that have a great power to weight ratio.

    Chain saw lube

    As far as bar oil is concerned, I buy whatever I can find that is on sale. Been doing it this way for 20 plus yrs and I don't have any issues with bar wear, etc.

    359 to 357xp

    Some of the 359's had catalytic mufflers that are too restrictive. You can replace it with a non-cat muffler or drill some of the cat plate out with a 1/2'' drill bit and open up the original port or add an extra port to get that exhaust out.

    Chain saw lube

    Its likely a summer weight bar oil. I know Sthil offers oils designed for summer (thicker) and winter (thinner) use.

    This is what started my chainsaw addiction

    It is beautiful. An insert would use less wood and heat more effectively...…..

    Anyone used the Pinch-A-Log lifting tongs?

    I have a Forrester brand hookaroon that works great for dragging wood from the bed of a truck or to the splitter, etc. My brother has Bahco brand log tongs that work great (same basic design as the Husqvarnas) and he also has a Fiskar hookaroon that is a very nice tool.

    Anyone used the Pinch-A-Log lifting tongs?

    I've got the Husqvarna 8 and 10 inch tongs. I don't go out after firewood without them. Sent from my SM-G930VL using Tapatalk

    Chap suspenders

    Hold ups brand has a plastic gripper clasp that looks very good (don't own em but been looking). It appears they would be kind to the material, not slip and would not make any holes etc.

    New Firewood Scrounging:

    When we can plan on a couple days of cutting, clearing and dragging, there is a skidder we borrow. That's fun to experience how much work they can accomplish. Oh, we use the heck out this little trailer as you can see. My brother and I built it out of some angle iron and a mini van axle. Small...

    New Firewood Scrounging:

    I'm pretty spoiled here as all of my wood and cutting is done on the family farm. I have access to tractors when needed for the big trees. Most of the time I use the truck or lately been using the Ranger and ATV if the snow isn't too deep. I can get down into the timber and into tighter spots...

    I'm in East Central Iowa and I tried shutting that strong south wind down, but must be coming from further south than here.[emoji4] Sent from my SM-G930VL using Tapatalk

    Recommendations for easier carrying of rounds/splits.

    Log tongs. 12 and 8 inch in the picture. Definitely back savers and can carry with both hands and well balanced. I won't firewood without em. Sent from my SM-G930VL using Tapatalk

    Burning Elm.

    I burn a lot of standing dead Elm and do not have any clinkers form. Burning a Pacific Energy Super 27 non catalytic stove. I do find with Elm that it burns very easily and leaves me with a bunch of coals to burn down. I don't get the amount of coals with Hickory , Oak or Cherry. Sent from my...

    Who cares if the guide bar is any good...

    And those are both: good bars and good looking bars.
