Eric is a super good dude. He was more than gracious to this freak out something not going right flunky when something was squirrelly.Benp you ever hear the story of "The Red Thorn"?? I was a Dolmar that Eric had to "fix". He sure can build a quick saw.
Uncle Mike, didn't seem like it was 85% Hickory we were cutting?? The maple was SOOOO soft, the Ash soft, and that dang Hickory..... Man that was some tough stuff.
Did some sawing around my place this morning, got a question....... How small do you guys cut too? I mean when bucking rounds out of the tops?? In years past, I was a wood snob and would just drag the stick out the woods with the tractor and then do all the work near the splitter. This year, the standing dead ash has pretty well been groomed, so I've actually chopped up a few tops. How small around do you guys stop????
Awesome!!!!!! she is going to kick you in the nuts some day for that picture. Literally.
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 that to me since a 60cc saw will command a 20" bar.IMO, the 044/440 is far different from the 046/460. 044s are noticeably lighter and well suited to being and all around saws with a 20" bar, while 460s are more suited to felling and bucking and larger bars.
The 7900 is much closer in weight and displacement to the 460. In my mind, 80 cc is 75-85.
I normally run a 20 on my 395.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 don't know how many saws Mike had at the PA GTG but it was a Mustang full. i couldn't run them all because of my back but i know everyone else liked running them. he gets any more saws and he'll need one of these.“Mike rolls in with 11 saws” is my favorite part! Glad to hear the young lads earned some respect. It’s satisfying to know a hard days work helps someone out who needs it. Congrats on the good day.
I'm in Bedford NH. And a few of those pics were taken in Northwood NH, that's where I cut & split my wood at FIL house.What part of NH ? I live in Boscawen and we were ok, my BIL lives in Loudon and they were out of power for days.
Why? Seriously why? There is zero logic in that thought process aside from "I can."I normally run a 20 on my 395.
Awesome family Matt!!!
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.Thanks, they are good girls. I bribe them with guns, fishing gear and four wheelers to keep them doing what I want.
What kind of wood do you cut out in MN? We have hard wood and I like a 20 on my 75cc saw, in the process of building another big bore kit Husky and will probably put a 28 on it for felling. But a 20 on the 75cc is like when Obi Won gives Luke Vaders old lightsaber....... CUTS THROUGH EVERYTHING.
I don't understand the 20 bar on a 90cc saw either, its like carrying around a 12in cinder block and getting little for it.
I have 136 with 14in 55CP with 16 and the 20's on the 262xp and 362xpBB. Every size covered and only use the little saws for bucking littler wood.
