Husky 40. Pokonaj **** od lat. Nadużycia i zaniedbania, jakich doświadczył, były epickie, ale po prostu działały. To był czołg. Wreszcie po prostu ... rozpadło się.

Mine was an Echo cs3400 top handle saw, I got it from my neighbor when I was under 10yo... along with some lessons on how to use it properly.
Loved that saw. I used it every chance I got, but I tinkered with it a little too much & ended up ruining it.
My dad pitched it on trash day a few years later, after I took pieces off to attempt to fix it... I left it sitting somewhere he didn't like when we where going through the house to move, and I never saw it again:/

My first saw was a $99 Bunnings(hardware store) special I think it was an Ozito brand, then a MS170, then MS311, then 026, then got given my late Grandpa's Husqvarna 64, then more recently bought a MS462C, also got a Chinese Baumr-ag SX82 (which is a 372XP clone) 20200413_194621.jpg 20190425_124746.jpg 20200420_220954.jpg 20190425_120101.jpg 20170425_121719.jpg

Started off as a teen in the mid 1980s with my grandpa’s old blue Homelite XL-12, when grandpa bought a couple of outdoor wood furnaces and we suddenly had a need for firewood. Chainsaw duties went to me, because I was a two-stroke kid.

After a few years of use we replaced the XL-12 with a new Partner 5000 plus. Guess I am glad I got to learn on a couple of solid machines.

Bucking on the landing of a yarder crew. I was young and strong/stupid. Sure wouldn’t want to pack that beast around anymore. Lol
My training involved
This is how to add fuel/oil
This is how to start it.
This is how to sharpen it.
Run the tape and cut.
Training complete

First saw was a lil poulan wild thing I loved for what it was. Then I bought my 034 blown up and it started my addiction. It has been with me ever since, many others came and gone. The last pics are an old barker mono that my pap had sittin in his barn. One of the oldest saws I’ve ever got started with just carb cleaning. Thought about restoring but I like it the way it is. One day maybe reinforce a shelf for it in the garage.
