what are all these acronyms you two firewood nerds are using? Just contacted someone else about a 281xp. If both of the saws are sold already then I'll take that as a sign I'm meant to rock just one saw lol. Divine intervention and all that.
HVBW means highly valuable black walnut.....a joke because some dudes have a single BW in their yard and think they trunk is worth 5 figures to any mill.

I looked at that so many times over the last few days....but I have no need for another 80 plus cc saw.
I agree, you don't need another one. So stay away from it! lol. It's old as hell too. Looked it up and saw that model was discontinued in 2001. Hopefully it will last a few years at least.

They think is worth it for YOU to spend a day to take down a tree between 3 houses, over power lines and a fire hydrant with $100k worth of equipment (and liability insurance) to deliver to the mill for them and give them half the wood after you dispose of the brush and rake up the chips.

HVBW not to be confused with a WBL.:innocent:

Just sent an email to the state park volunteer coordinator. trying to find a volunteer opportunity, hopefully something like trail maintainer or some type of forest management helper, that will allow me to use my new used chainsaw. told my wife and she said I'm obsessed with chainsaws lol. whoops. maybe there should be some secrets in marriages.

My wife says the same about me. “He’s out chainsawing”

Her term for anything I’m doing in the shop anymore
