Just kidding, I made it too heavy
Depends on two things; can I drive the truck to it or is it more remote and ill be using the tractor .
If it's the truck I load it up, I mean why not? Two saws or more, all the supporting gear. I tend to bring spare saws rather then spare bars/chain. If it's the tractor everything is different. I can only haul about 1600 lbs and usually I run out of space first. I'll pick one saw, whatever fits what I'll be cutting best. One saw because I don't need anything taking up any extra room and I'm walking out with my saws if I get stuck or broke down. No extra chain/bar. I've never had a situation where I wasn't able to get enough done to make one load so. Always wedges, hand winch and some chain. A basic axe and saw tools completes the list. Pretty lean to say the least.
Feel like I forgot my underwear if I don't have my carry gun.
2 saws, fuel,bar oil,files,either a 1911 or XD.
Saw or saws depending on the job, gas, oil, scrench and something to haul everything and the wood in. Sometimes files or spare chains.
I KEEP A GUN IN THE TRUCK AT ALL TIMES, BUT I have never felt the need to have one on me when I am running a saw
Why would you go through the trouble of changing it for bucking it up? I'd just stay one or the other.
I take my ms
261 and 461 a old vintage axe I found in the barn bar and chain oil stihl 2 and 1 and 4 plastic wedges
Today i took a boat, the 660, husqy 460, and my 5601, plus lunch.
If I'm swapping chains anyway it only takes a second to swap a bar and sprocket. I like 3/8 for firewood because I get a fair amount of dirty wood and it lasts a lot longer between sharpenings and the chain lasts longer overall. Also, it's easier to file, which is nice when you're doing it frequently. I prefer .325 for limbing and thinning because it's smoother and the 7 pin .325 sprocket makes it torquier which is nice. In clean green wood the .325 lasts just fine.
Jet boat on da river?

Why wouldn’t you just leave the .3/8 on for everything?

Prop boat on millerton lake, me and 2 coworkers. That's why i love my job.
A 555, fuel,oil, scrench, file and a peavey.
When I cut at home I just grab a saw or 2 and throw them in the bucket of my skid steer and go.
Been cutting at neighbors house the last couple years. When I go there I bring my truck, 16 foot bobcat trailer, log jack, wedges and all safety gear.
I bring 3 saws generally. Lately it's been my ported 260 cause its light, my stock 257 cause it's dead nuts reliable and my "big saw" my 038 magnum with a 25" bar.
I bring my tool box with files etc cause the wood at my neighbors can have the odd nail in it.
Used to just grab saws, PPE and fuel but I've learned the hard way a few times.
Once my 562 is rebuilt I'll probably just grab that and a 260 and go.
If I have some trimming to do or cut up something that fell on the driveway usually grab my Echo battery saw. If I anticipate cutting up to 15 inch logs grab the Echo 490. When I am clearing windblown oaks that are big I'll carry two. The Echo 490 and my Stihl 440 with 25 inch bar. In a couple of months plan on adding a Echo 620 to the collection.
This is what I take when I'm out fun cutting
1 big saw, 1 medium 57+cc saw (stays in truck for back up), and my new limber a husky 246
Wedge banger axe/wedges
common tools/files for each saw, stump vice. Spare chains stay in truck
helmet if I know I'm cutting standing dead tree's(new thing, had a very close call last year at work)
Been using a quad/trailer at the farm we been cuttin. Mainly splitting the wood where tree was dropped, hauled out w/ quad trailer.
Unfortunately were not allowed to carry guns 99% of the time here in NJ. We needed protection recently at a job site in a little "ghetto" community last week. 3 kids on bikes did a drive by with pellet gun pistols. Nothing punctured the skin on the co-worker that was hit. It was cold out so he had a lot of clothes on and they were only Co'2 powered pistols. I was cleaning saws on backside of bucket truck so I was protected.
I take my 028 super, and now 038 mag. I used to take a 340 and 455 Husqvarna, but don’t like the oiling setup or bar on those as much as the stihls (and I got them both running) so I sold both the Husqvarnas. I wish my stihls would start as easy as the Husqvarna saws did, I could almost take the pulp fiction bet with the 455. That saw NEVER failed to start on the first rip.
Yes helmet a win win! My dad had a limb get him in the head before. I also where my chaps.
