    I thought I remember you saying you were never going to sell it at one time :laugh:.
    I've had a few of them, always to sell ;), one would pull a 24" like any stock 60cc pro saw, it was an awesome runner:chainsaw:.
    When I came home last night there was an ms271 sitting on the porch o_O, not another one :crazy2:. Ends up it was the neighbor's grandson's saw, he wanted me to sharpen the "blade for him". He was cutting with it last weekend and it was killing me just listening to it run it was so dull :eek:. I spent 25 min with it on the grinders and got it nice and sharp. Added a half a tank of fuel and cut a couple buckets worth of black locust, it did very well until you got to the stuff over 14", he should be happy. I was surprised it cut so much on what little fuel I added, I figured I was gonna get the best use out of that chain before he ran it into the ground again :clap:.

    Hmm. Not sure if I said that (must have got over it pretty quickly) but I know someone who did.

    That's funny stuff right there, I like the absolutes like that, the other one is "my wife bought me this saw(or it was a gift to me) I'll never sell it":laughing:.
    I read a post like that just a few minutes ago and had to laugh.

    Second weekend at our new cabin. I would stay there weeks long if I could. Did a bit of firewood with the new atv and homemade trailer. Perfect kind of weekend for me

    Son's 14 Chevy truck just suffered the 6.2 Curse at 86k. Worst part was he's off work for bow season and was on his way to his hunting lease for 10 days. I think its like 3 months off the power train warranty.

    Figure that's gonna bump 5k to fix.

    Happy belated Birthday Jeff, and Happy Thanksgiving to all you Northerners!

    The weekend up at the cabin went well, the old cabin now has a new roof (plywood and all), and the wood stove did it's job keeping us all warm last night (temps went into the 30s).

    Will post more after I recover a bit!

    I guaranteed my wife that I will never buy a saw that I don't need. Ironclad guarantee wrapped in a promise served on top of a pledge. I never have and I never will. :laugh:

    Thanks guys. Roughing it here in Daytona Beach. It's nice but all they have are palm trees and I don't see chimneys on any of these houses. Decent sunrise though. Happy Thanksgiving to all the Canucks and happy Columbus Day to the Muricans![​IMG]
