    Here's some work I did last Saturday, only had one Pine to top.
    Tomorrow, after I get out of work at the shop, I'm gong back to the same property and top another one.
    Then I'll jump in my car drive about 30 minutes south and drop a Sugar Maple and buck it to stove length for the home owner.
    That'll be a good day's work for this "workin man and his chainsaw".....

    What hand saw do you use and where can I find one? I need a nice saw for setting up deer stands.

    It's a Silky Ibuki. Silky makes about the best handsaw you can buy. They are "a bit pricey", but well worth the money!
    Here's a link to one of the places that sells them(hopefully it works).

    Norm,
    great to hear you're still "with us" after everything that has happened, you are a very fortunate man.
    And congratulations again, sounds like you've got a good woman there.
    All the very best to both of you!

    Haven't posted here in a bit, hope you all are well and Happy Thanksgiving.

    Some pics from a couple weeks back. Saw pard finishing off a decent larch, pretty damn good for 60 years old. A rotten red fir that came back to the lead with a siswheel. That root did it's job. Cleaned up nicely about 20 feet out.

    Take care - Sam

    Happy Thanksgiving everybody! Havnt been on much at all since the site started having problems. Looks like its back up and running just fine now. Hope everybody's holiday was pleasant. Spent mine at work, and everybody had their family come to the station though for a group dinner. [​IMG]

    Might go do some black Friday shopping. My 200t has an air leak somewhere, dont have time to fix it at the moment and really need a backup saw. So a 201t might be in my future today. If so it will be not only my first new saw, but my first saw bought that even runs LOL.

    Got to climb a couple of pine trees today. Remembered to take a couple of pics when I was almost done. Topped and dropped one, cut another smaller one, and cleaned another of moss and deadwood. Got to use my new ms201 to. Not real impressed with it I must say, but I new that going into it. Will have to modify it for sure.

    Brian,
    great to hear from you again! I have to keep checking in 'cause I'm still not getting "new post notices" in my e mail???
    That's a great family picture, the boys sure are getting big! Hope y'all are staying healthy. Late Happy Thanksgiving to you and you're family!
    I heard the 201's are a bit disappointing stock, but respond well to mods.....? I sure love my 200t!
    Good pics up in the Pine, been doing a lot of tree work lately?
    I took the day off yesterday and used it to finish up the Poplar/Oak job I started Saturday.
    Here's a few pics from the Oak.....

    It was about 35 with a light drizzle, not the best weather to work in but good enough to get the job done..... :clap:

    Happy late Thanks giving to you as well. We were all sick for awhile, had a cold going around. But everybody is healthy again. I have been busy but it hasnt all been fun tree work LOL. Have been taking down quite a few dead pines, but I have been doing far more palm trees than anything else. I love tree work! But I dont think I am that big of a fan of Florida tree work LOL. Palm trees are what messed up my 200t. One some days I had it running 6-7 hrs. only shutting it off to fuel it up. Got it pretty hot a few times, would get it to where the debris around the cylinder would start smoking. Palm trees are horrible for saws, pretty much wot with no load.

    Good to hear you're all feeling better, "the cold epidemic" went around up here too, I just got over it myself(I think :dizzy:).
    Glad to hear you're at least staying busy. :)
    Work safe. :D

    Ayuh, love it! At least 90% of my climbing is SRT. There are times when DRT has the advantage, but not very often..... ;)
    And yes, VERY busy! :clap:
