    Ha! I had to go and find it.



    Cowgirl bought our kids iPad type things some time back and Cowlad was wasting all his waking out of school hours on it, of all things watching youtube videos of other people playing games. After several warnings, I found a further use for woodheaps: that being something to bounce iPad things off from a distance. YouTube problem solved.

    My eldest watches the videos of people playing Minecraft. I believe those guys make a decent living out of it.

    The very top people make 7 figures a year off it. To kids these days it’s the next get rich quick scheme. In reality you have a better chance of becoming a professional athlete.

    The life cycle of these games are very short. The chance of being a top player in whatever comes next is slim to none.

    I hit a dog toy (one of those big soft polymer balls) with our mower a couple mowings back, last I saw it; it was still rolling/bouncing/flying strong a couple houses away...

    My mother was mowing back when I was a kid of maybe 10yo, sucked up a 1/2" logging chain...talk about bring things to a screeching stop...

    There’s videos on here somewhere if it. I sold it when I spent the winter in Florida a couple years back. Great saw though.

    I bought it from Steve. Still runs great and I use it when I am limbing because you can wield it like a sword for hours and your arms don't get tired. Don't know if Steve or Carl did the muffler mod but it makes that little fella run hard.

    Sounds good!
    Does it have a timing advance too.
    It's nice isn't it. I've had quite a few guys give me a hard time when I've said I like my little and my baby saws, they'll have to do what they have to do, and I'll do what I have to. It's not like I don't have bigger saws to run whenever I want, to me it's about having choices.

    Carl did it, I’m not nearly that talented.

    It has timing advance too.

    No pics yet but this morning my neighbor and I brushed the community duck blind and dragged a few deadheads (logs) out of the water for safety purposes. Will buck and split them so they’ll dry this century.

    I thought it did, sounds like a fun saw.
    Specs say 9.3lbs, 2.4hp at 12.8 max rpms.
    The ms200 rear handle is 8.4 lbs 2.1hp at 14k, without the arrestor screen they run a good bit more rpms as well as power.
    The 201c-em(rear handled mtronic) is 8.6lbs and 2.41hp at 14k
    I'd try a 3601(almost tried yours :)). I know I like the 4300, it's like a pro mans ms241 :laugh:.

    I'd have to try an echo 361p for the cost of less than a used 200 or 201 in a 35cc saw. Same motor as the 355t.
