Back again folks. Despite not posting much lately I have spent a reasonable amount of time on the saws but mainly with the smaller Casuarinas as outlined above. I wanted to fell all the trees on the map prior to starting my new job on the 25th of March and still had around 700 odd left come Easter. I ended up getting my brother to come with me on Easter Monday as I require a spotter on this property if there are no employees working. Having my brother there to move the vehicle up etc helped massively and I ended up dropping the remaining 700 trees in just on 5 hours. Despite only using smaller saws this is the highest number of trees per hour I've ever averaged (140/hr). I think my previous high was with my old Dolmar 5100-S early on in this thread at 120/hr. I used the 241C for the most part but ran the 550XP for around 100 of the larger trees. One issue I have found and I've mentioned this elsewhere is that Husky filtration compared to the new Stihl HD2's is utter crap. The Casuarinas above are coated in dust due to the amount of machinery travelling up and down the tracks. The 241C's filter stopped the lot - the Husky let a massive amount through and they are now being oiled to stop it. Husqvarna need to play some serious catch up with their filters. The photos below show the Stihl with around 10 times more hours on it than the Husky. Remember too that a lot of this is REAL dust, not wood dust. This gear will end up causing premature wear. All Husqvarna have to do is run a dry paper element like the Dolmar HD or Stihl HD2 - it's not that hard or expensive! MS241C 550XP I also had to drop a boundary row of Eucalypts for a winegrape grower just down the road from my place. All I had to do was drop them and it took 2 1/2 hours. Nothing really tricky or overlay large. The guy got his son who was on holidays to cut the rest up with an 024 and 18" bar. Probably took him all week. There was some good firewood in this lot for the owner.
