    i think we can get to know each other better, I forget not everyone is a logger, a firewood cutter or heats his house with wood were all different.

    1. Are you a logger, firewood business or cut firewood for home, other?

    2. What’s your biggest cc saw?

    3. What’s the longest bar you use?

    Burn 15-20 cords heating my place, my dad's, and making maple syrup. Try to sell a few cords too. Do some tree service work on the side for a friend's business and a little on my own.

    395xp

    36" bar.

    I only use the big saws if necessary. Ported 50 and 60cc saws get most of the use around my place.

    also just cut wood to heat our home and enjoy making saws run again.
    Mostly run a Husky 350, but I use an Echo CS590 if I need something bigger.

    Just a weekend wood and tree cutter and occasionally one at work.

    My biggest saw is 105cc chicom 070 with a bar that can run 32&36 inch chains. I usually just run my sub 50cc saws and my 56cc. My 365 clone is shelved until I get the seals replaced.

    I no longer cut wood for the house, only down and dead tees on our farm, I'm just a GM auto tech/shop foreman. Poulan 5200 is my biggest saw and a 16" bow is my biggest, everything else is 18". I have CAD.

    1. I primarily cut firewood but have also run saws on wild fires and on structural fires. We used to cut holes in roofs but we haven’t done that in a few years. I’ve turned windows into doors, made triangle cuts in the gable to get water into attic spaces, and once cut the bottom out of a grain silo so we could flush burning grain out the bottom with a fire hose from the top.

    2. My biggest saw is an 038Mag with a 28” bar. I’ve never used it though. Bought it from my father in laws estate because I didn’t want it to leave the family. Especially at the price they put in it. It’s also never run in the time I’ve had it. Needs a serious cleaning (he used it on a roofing job and it’s covered in tar) it sits on the lower shelf of my workbench waiting for some attention.

    The saw I use most is my 361.

    3. Longest bar is the 28” on the 038Mag that I don’t use. (Does that even count?) The bar on the 361 is a 24”.

    Had a firewood business since ‘80, full time and part time inbetween jobs. Now it’s just firewood to heat the house.

    Biggest saw I used was a 2100 99cc right now it’s the 385xp..

    Longest bar is a 32”.
