    Pro's and Con's of the cold

    what's the weirdest thing you have used a chainsaw for ....

    Used to have sled dogs, had a contact with a horse vet, he would call me to remove dead horses that were good for dog food. Sometimes in the winter the dead horses were frozen and too far from the truck, so..Jonsereds 49sp on the job. Truck would get some "looks " on the way home. Dallas
