..that saw is mine! After being sick as can be for the last 3 days it was a nice surprise getting an e-mail from Stumpy saying my saw is done. And then having such a great thread about it to boot.

No one mentioned the less obvious benefit from a good porting - weight reduction. I can't wait to try out my Stumpbroke 460. I plan to do a quick clip of doing a couple cuts with my stock 084 next to my Stumpbroke 460. I'll hafta change my signature now to include this saw. I suspect that when my feet are on the ground this will be my go to saw now.

My cousin works at a Stihl dealer and they have a chunk of oak 4-5ft diameter sitting on the side of their lot so folks have a place to play - err test - their their tools. They sorta got in trouble for making noise there, but he seems inclined to let me take a whack at it.

I hope you enjoy it Dan. Not sure how it will do against a 084, but give it hell.:rock:

I think you'll really like the throttle response of the saw... :rock:

I like it already. I am not expecting it to out pull the 122cc saw, but do think it should be respectable. I may toss in the 066 (after I put some new rubber on it - methinks I have vacuum leak) to keep things fair.

The way I figure it I am getting older and my hearings not improving I may as well take it easy on myself. So rather than lugging around the 084 maybe a Stumpbroke 066 is what my tired arms need. (Good thing I'm not married because I am not sure I could get a wife to buy that line of reasoning.)

I wonder if this is in my future:
"Hi my name is Dan and I had CAD. It has been less than 24 hours since my last saw acquisition. But it doesn't count because I already owned that saw. It was "just" a necessary repair. So if ya don't count that one it has been 10 days since I last bought a saw...."

But seriously my recently acquired 084 may have to go and I may be sending my 066 to Stumpy. I think I am Stumpified.

LMAO My saw is Stumpbroke. Me, I'd hafta spend a lot more money on your work before I was Stumpbroke. But really, your price was very reasonable. Since you did this in depth thread I don't have to take it apart to see what all the innards look like either. Hey unless I missed it somewhere, I don't see where you mentioned what you had to do to the carb to keep it breathing as freely as the rest of the saw. (Not asking for trade secrets or anything, just noting that jets had to change to deal with all that cfm.)

So, did you get to town to get it shipped out yet? Not that I am eager or anything, but didja? Hunh, hunh - didja?

it only takes one to start:help::wink2: I know

Justification 101: chainsaws are like money in the bank - just a smaller class of people whose wallets accept them as legal tender

I figure I will either a) sell my crap when I am really going to retire, b) give it to my grandson (because my daughter has no interest) or leave a gem or two buried in the shed so after my passing one of my descendants will happen across it and while searching on whatever portable electronic gizmo they have out then will discover what a Stumpbroke saw is.

This whole tree climbing and stuff (which led to CAD) was just a way for me to climb trees and have someone pay me to do it. I am one of those weekend warriors. This is what I do when I am taking time off on the weekends: (hopefully I uploaded this correctly)

I love chainsaws as much as the next guy, but if it came down to it I wanna be the one layin next to her. :msp_wink:

That would be acceptable, if you're fully clothed and back about 20 feet or so, nothin' personal, but she's about 1/10th your size.

Seems to me you're tryin' to hijack this thread and make it about you!!:msp_biggrin:


Respectfully,


luck,greg
