I just spent 130 on 1000 Xmilitary FMJ pills
Whats the average range in diameter trees are you falling?I didn't grow up dragging my old man's boat anchors through old growth for him before he gave me my shot at driving his wedges and progressing to felling my own trees. Sadly. I don't have forearms like popeye, or Neil.Technique is getting better but will never be great. Fact is, I'm getting older and weaker and it's a point that is rammed home whenever I'm on steep terrain felling largish (for around here) trees. A few trees with a solid 42" bar on such terrain and I'm needing a break. A few days of that and I'm ready to go buck firewood or sit on the tractor for a day or two.
Just last week I was on steep ground clambering through 20 years of private rubbish dump trying to fell small trees leaning over a state highway. So, not even big trees but it knocked me around. My mate, who only lasted half a day admitted he need a voltarin. I'm not that bad but it's only a matter of time.
The only thing I like about getting older is I'm less prone to trying to carry on when tired, because I know that's when I do stoopid things and bad **** happens. So if a reduced weight bar helps me get more trees over while staying safe, I'm going to keep finding one no matter how farking ridiculous those who know better think it is.
I could piss $200 up against a wall on a good night out but would rather spend it on a quality bar. If nobody else wants to do likewise, to each their own.
Looks more like possum ****
Common problem around here too, one of the local mechanics ties rat baits around the engine bay with zip ties which seems to help.
We call building inspectors here magpies, because they come on site and only seem interested in the shiny bits, and they can cause all sorts of havoc if they feel like it.Make a friend with a magpie and you have a friend for life...Will make a hell of a mess in your house though if you let em in.
